Emmanuel Adebayor was confirmed as the runner-up in this season`s Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.

The Arsenal star finished the campaign with an impressive 730 points – averaging 20 points per game – but was undone by the remarkable form of Cristiano Ronaldo who topped the standings with a massive 838 points.

Adebayor`s achievement shouldn`t be overlooked, as he ended the campaign with just four points less than former Gunner Thierry Henry achieved when topping the Index in 2005/06.

Cesc Fabregas ended the campaign in eighth overall, also earning himself a place in the Actim Team of the Season, along with young full-back Gael Clichy.

Analysis of all Premier League games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:
