Coutinho, Ba, and...? Five heroes from the Premier League weekend

Cardiff City, Chelsea, Fulham, Liverpool and Tottenham feature.

It was a huge weekend in the Premier League as the game between two title rivals produced a winner and another one kept up the pressure. There were some big results at the bottom of the table, as well as a memorable comeback at The Hawthorns. So, here are our five heroes from the Premier League weekend.

Philippe Coutinho

After Liverpool raced into a two goal lead at Anfield, it seemed as if they were seamlessly on their way to victory. However, Manchester City clawed them back to 2-2, and with the game entering the final quarter, the Coutinho’s shot on the turn from the edge of the area sent Anfield wild – and the sense of belief that Liverpool could end their 24 year wait for the title got that little bit stronger.

Demba Ba

Chelsea are not to be discounted in the title race, and they can thank Demba Ba after their 1-0 win against Swansea City yesterday. He hasn’t played much this season, but when he’s been called upon he has delivered the goods, including the crucial goal in the Champions League against PSG, and his strike this week means they are within two points of Liverpool with four games to go.

Hugo Rodallega

He’s a hero for the second week running as Rodallega came up with another huge winner for Fulham as the Cottagers won their relegation six-pointer against Norwich City at Craven Cottage. Two wins on the bounce, two big goals from Rodallega has put them within two points of safety.

David Marshall

Some will hail Juan Cala for his goal for Cardiff City at Southampton, but David Marshall pulled off a string of fine saves at St Mary’s to keep a clean sheet, and allowed the Bluebirds to move within three points of safety. The goalkeeper has been in fine form this season, and his performance may be crucial come the end of the season.

Christian Eriksen

Eriksen has been in terrific form for Tottenham lately and when his side was 3-0 down against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, it looked as if Spurs were heading for another heavy defeat. However, they managed to claw their way back into the game, and Eriksen’s strike in stoppage time salvaged a point for Tim Sherwood’s side.
