Birmingham City striker Mikael Forssell helped himself to a mammoth 69 points in the weekend defeat of Spurs, the highest score of the week and the fourth-highest individual match score of the season in the Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.
The Finland international showed signs of the form that saw him score 19 goals for Blues during the 2003-04 season before injuries curtailed his progress.
The haul, which included a hat-trick, more than doubled Forssell's previous season-high mark of 30 points against Reading back in December and came from just four shots on target.
It took Forssell's match average at St Andrews up to an impressive 17 points per appearance, moving him up 74 places in the overall standings into 131st position, with Seb Larsson still City's top-ranked player in 66th spot overall.
Analysis of all Premiership games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:
Brad Friedel,Blackburn Rovers, Goalkeeper, 24
Ashley Cole, Chelsea, Defender, 35
Fabio Aurelio, Liverpool, Defender, 32

Michael Ballack, Chelsea, Midfielder, 33
Owen Hargreaves, Manchester United, Midfielder, 33
