FootballCritic has now updated its rankings for the best-performing players in world football using its algorithm.

And Messi took home the top spot on the list, with Neymar finishing second, Haaland coming third and Sancho taking home the fourth spot.

According to FootballCritic, the score it awards to each player is "not based on a player's perceived achievements or ability, but rather their form across their last 20 matches."

John Stones, who has been widely praised for his form in Manchester City's title-challenging season, managed to climb into the top 10 of the rankings.
