Everton's Belgian striker, Marouanne Fellaini, scored twice in his team's 2-2 draw with Fulham and entered the rankings for the first time at sixth.
Paolo Condo, soccer writer with Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport, said: "Inter was able to interrupt a line of 49 wins or draws of Juventus. Neymar scored three goals, and at the end of the match opponents' fans chanted his name."
Julian Bennetts, of England's Hayters news agency, said: "Two goals to end Juventus' unbeaten run means that Diego Milito deserves the crown of best player this week."
"Strikers win matches and Luis Suarez, Neymar and Roberto Soldado all proved their credentials once again," Bennetts added. "The most impressive result of the weekend by quite some distance was Inter Milan's 3-1 victory at Juventus. That ended the Old Lady's unbeaten run on 49 and was the cause for rightful celebration at the San Siro."
Real Madrid slipped one place to sixth, replaced in fifth place by France's Saint-Etienne, thrust into the top 10 by a surprise 2-1 victory over French league leader Paris Saint- Germain.
