Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho on the rise in Sky Sports La Liga Power Rankings

Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho is among the top performers in the La Liga Power Rankings – but who else made the top 50?

Coutinho (No 6, up three places) assisted both goals during a 2-1 win against Valencia – a result that saw the league leaders smash an all-time La Liga record with 39 games unbeaten – while Lionel Messi maintained top spot in the chart.

Adrian (No 2, up six places) struck twice within the opening 15 minutes to help Deportivo claim a 3-2 win at Athletic Bilbao, while Real Betis defender Marc Bartra (No 5, up five places) retained his place among the top performers after a 1-0 win at Girona.

Real Sociedad youngster Mikel Oyarzabel (No 4, up 16 places) scored the matchwinner at Las Palmas – with team-mate Aritz Elustondo (No 3, up four places) producing another impressive display at right-back.

Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa (No 8, up 108 places) broke the deadlock against Levante, before Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres – who will leave the club at the end of the season – completed a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Getafe defender Damian Suarez soared 156 places up the chart to land No 9 spot after netting a spectacular, match-winning free-kick against Espanyol.
