It’s Monday and that can only mean one thing—time to count down the top five players of the world football weekend.

We start with Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, who capped a fine performance with a wonderful solo goal in their 3-0 win against Napoli.

Next up is Newcastle’s red-hot striker Papiss Cisse, who heaped further misery on Liverpool with both goals in a 2-0 win for the Toon Army.

Karim Benzema is a reentry, following his stunner for Real Madrid against Osasuna, with Chelsea fullback Branislav Ivanovic rewarded with the No. 2 spot after scoring twice against Aston Villa.

As for the No. 1 position, you’ll have to watch the video to find out who earned it.
