Erik makes instant Actim impact

Wigan Athletic defender Erik Edman enjoyed a debut to remember after claiming a place in the team of the week in The Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.

Edman was one of the week`s top-scoring defenders with 27 points, also shading team-mates Paul Scharner (24 points) and Wilson Palacios (20) in the 2-0 defeat of rock-bottom Derby.

Emile Heskey top-scored for the Latics, earning 29 points for his performance but Titus Bramble remains Steve Bruce`s top-ranked player in 65th position overall.

Goalkeeper Chris Kirkland is the other Wigan player in the top 100, sitting in 95th place overall, the 13th-ranked goalkeeper in the Actim Index.

Analysis of all Premiership games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:
