As a result, Soares climbed 29 places to 112th in the Index with 346 points having also notched the fifth highest overall score of the week.

The 21-year-old opened the scoring at the Britannia Stadium as Palace boosted their play-off hopes, posting 37 points having also contributed eight passes and a dribble.

Team-mate Jose Fonte also enjoyed a good week, his 31-point haul making him the highest-scoring defender of the week.
