Stephen Ireland`s performance in Manchester City`s come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur earned him a place in the team of the week in The Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.
The 21-year-old, who scored City`s first goal at Eastlands, posted 33 points against the Carling Cup holders, just two off his best home score of the season, to move up 21 places to 89th in the Index with 259 points.
Ireland is proving his worth at the other end of the pitch as well making 14 interceptions so far this season, joint second equal with Dietmar Hamann, Nedum Onuoha, and Vedran Corluka. Only Richard Dunne has more - leading the way with 25 interceptions so far this season.
City have three players in the top 50 with Benjani in 11th place with 444 points and Martin Petrov (407) and Richard Dunne (341) in 16th and 42nd respectively.
