Viva Valencia

Wigan Athletic star Antonio Valencia was the top-scoring player in this week`s Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.

The Ecuador winger scored his season`s-best 56 points in the 2-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday, edging Manchester United`s Cristiano Ronaldo to the week`s best return by four points.

It saw Valencia climb 36 places into 94th overall, his 312-point haul this term just a point and three places behind team-mate Paul Scharner.

Chris Kirkland remains the club`s top-ranked player in 62nd overall, his 364 points making him the 10th-ranked goalkeeper in the Premier League.

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