During the season our regular feature will detail whose value is rising and


Leighton Baines (Everton, 14.51) +3.86: The week's
top scorer contributed a goal, an assist, seven successful crosses and other

Lee Bowyer (Birmingham
City, 7.94) +2.90:
A shame his fine performance against Spurs was
overshadowed by Luka Modric's

Louis Saha (Everton, 9.53) +2.41: Back on form with a goal against Wigan following his
penalty miss at Burnley.

Robert Green (West Ham, 12.18) +2.16: Continued his fine season with six saves and a clean
sheet against Blackburn.

Aaron Lennon (Tottenham, 14.13) +2.00: The in-form Tottenham winger racked up a goal and five
shots on target versus Birmingham.

Chris Samba (Blackburn
Rovers, 9.89) +1.86:
Supplemented a commanding defensive display against
West ham with four shots on target.

Ashley Cole (Chelsea,
12.75) +1.82:
Cole is in the form of his life and signed a lucrative
new contract after his goal against Burnley.

Liam Lawrence (Stoke City, 10.59) +1.57: Completed seven crosses against Sunderland
but now looks prohibitively expensive.

James Collins (Aston Villa, 10.39) +1.06: The Villa
new boy has blocked eight shots this season - only Michael Turner has more.

Fernando Torres (Liverpool, 19.02) +1.04: Is second
in total points behind Didier Drogba and looks in fine fettle.


Abou Diaby (Arsenal, 7.12) -3.50: What goes up must come down. Last week's big riser plummets back down to earth.

Manuel Almunia (Arsenal, 10.39) -2.32: Had little to do against Manchester United, but
conceded a penalty and two goals.

Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City,
7.12) -1.83:
Booked during a half-hour cameo, but you wouldn't want him anyway.

Dimitar Berbatov (Manchester United, 12.37) -1.82: Reduced to the subs'
bench against Arsenal, and came on to little effect.

Jermain Defoe (Tottenham, 13.03) -1.36: Defoe's
goalscoring run was halted, but he is now more affordable.

Cole (West Ham, 10.27) -1.30:
The Hammers'
goalless draw against Blackburn did not see the England man at his best.

John Carew (Aston Villa, 8.79) -1.03: Will be a popular pick for next weekend's derby after shedding a million in value.

Mark Schwarzer (Fulham, 9.34) -1.00: A disastrous weekend for the Australian, who scored
minus six in the defeat at Aston Villa.

Wes Brown (Manchester
United, 5.44) -0.91:
United might have beaten Arsenal, but Brown was booked
and scored minus three.

Gary Cahill (Bolton,
9.96) -0.82:
call-up or not, Bolton's 3-2 home defeat
against Liverpool saw Cahill's value drop.
