Messi gets standing ovation, tops Player Power Rankings ahead of James

Shaka Hislop chooses not to get drawn into comparisons between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi following the Argentine's 33rd La Liga hat trick.

It's not often a player gets a standing ovation ... from a stadium full of opposing fans. Such a plaudit is enough to top our Player Power Rankings. Our global editors pick their top 10 performers from the weekend.

Also receiving votes: Luis Alberto (Lazio), Inaki Williams (Athletic Bilbao).

Let us know what you think of the countdown by commenting on Twitter using #ESPNFCrankings.
