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

This week's charts see plenty of entrants from Merseyside. However, there is a pretty clear split between the blue and the red half of the city of Liverpool. 

UP

Theo Walcott (MF, Arsenal, 10.72) +4.59

Rediscovered his form after a poor spell with a devilish performance against Burnley.

Emmerson Boyce (DF, Wigan Athletic, 11.48) +3.72

An assist and a clean sheet means big points for the defender

Mikel Arteta (MF, Everton, 10.56) +2.57

The Spaniard put his injury nightmare behind with a brace in the 5-1 mauling of Hull.

Landon Donovan (FW, Everton, 11.67) +2.45

Chipped in with a goal against Hull on his last appearance at Goodison Park before returning to LA Galaxy.

Samir Nasri (MF, 9.98) +2.39

The signs look good as the Frenchman prepares to step into the injured Cesc Fabregas's shoes.

Andrei Arshavin (MF, Arsenal, 14.56) 2.25

The Russian marked his return to fitness with a goal.

Edwin van der Sar (GK, Manchester United, 14.04) +2.03

A clean sheet at Molineux, greatly aided by some atrocious Wolves finishing.

Jack Rodwell (MF, Everton, 7.65) +1.91

Came off the bench to score his second goal in three games against the Tigers.

Hugo Rodallega (FW, Wigan Athletic, 13.78) +1.90

The Colombian's match-winner gave Wigan a vital win and Liverpool a crushing defeat.

Paul Scholes (MF, Manchester United, 7.28) +1.86

The veteran assassin bagged his 100th Premier League goal to grab three points at Wolves.

DOWN

Fernando Torres (FW, Liverpool, 16.66) -2.36

A performance from the Spanish hitman every bit as bad as his team earned him -1.5 points.

Abou Diaby (MF, Arsenal, 10.09) -2.13

Replaced the injured Fabregas before half-time, but did not emulate the Arsenal skipper.

Darron Gibson (MF, Manchester United, 9.53) -1.90

Yet to do much more than underwhelm for United.

Steven Gerrard (MF, Liverpool, 16.08) -1.81

Managed a paltry 0.5 points, though would have been less if obscene hand gestures were penalised in Fantasyland.

Marcus Hahnemann (GK, Wolves, 8.06) -1.74

Managed three saves against United, but still sunk in value.

Sotirios Kyrgiakos (DF, Liverpool, 7.05) -1.64

Another casualty of Liverpool's defeat at the DW.

Martin Paterson (FW, Burnley, 7.90) -1.58

Barely got a sniff during his 73 minutes at the Emirates.

Tamir Cohen (MF, Bolton Wanderers, 5.12) -1.45

The Israeli's assist against west Ham was more than cancelled out by his six fouls and a red card.

Richard Garcia (MF, Hull City, 3.94) -1.41

Scored Hull's sixth own goal of the season at Everton.

Zat Knight (DF, Bolton Wanderers, 8.65) -1.38

The big defender drops in value after failing to repeat his goal and clean sheet from last week.
