The Premier League provided no shortage of talking points for fans to mull over this morning as they head into work, as focus briefly switches to the League Cup fixtures this week.
There were some standout performances from the weekend, which will leave individuals basking in positive praise for most of this week.
We’ve taken a look at the best performers in some key areas from the latest round of games.
It’s a case of two Arsenal players dominating in terms of goals for this week. Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud were both on song for the Gunners, as they had too much in terms of their attack for Newcastle to deal with.
|Position||Team||Goal Assist||Appearances||Mins Played|
|Antonio Valencia||MF||Man Utd||1||1||90|
|Yannick Bolasie||MF||C. Palace||1||1||90|
Another Arsenal player features with the club’s summer signing Alexis Sanchez showing that he can do a lot more for the Gunners than simply scoring goals to decide games.
|David de Gea||GK||Man Utd||8||1||90|
|Brad Guzan||GK||Aston Villa||4||1||90|
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea was superb in terms of the number of saves he made against Liverpool. United won the game 3-0 and the Spaniard made the score line look more impressive for his team.
|Position||Team||Accurate Pass||Appearances||Mins Played|
|Marouane Fellaini||MF||Man Utd||61||1||90|
|Carlos Sánchez||MF||Aston Villa||61||1||78|
|James Morrison||MF||West Brom||58||1||90|
It’s a shame that more Newcastle players weren’t on the same wavelength as Tiote, who was the most accurate player in terms of passes. Louis van Gaal will be delighted to see Fellaini on the list, with the Belgian continuing his impressive recent form for the Old Trafford side.
