Roberto Firmino of Liverpool reacts to a challenge during the Premier League match between Brighton and Hove Albion and Liverpool at Amex Stadium on December 2, 2017 in Brighton, England.

Another thrilling gameweek of Premier League action is done. We saw some excellent displays, in particular from Everton and Manchester United players. Who were the best performers (max three per club)?

David De Gea of Manchester United makes a save during the Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester United at Emirates Stadium on December 2, 2017 in London, England.

Goalkeeper: David De Gea (Manchester United)

How could it be anyone else? De Gea was miraculous against Arsenal. His 14 saves was a record and his tackle-save from Alexis Sánchez has to be seen to be believed.

Centre-back: Nicolas Otamendi (Manchester City)

Won 4/4 tackles, made 2 interceptions and 3 effective clearances. Also scored a towering header to draw Manchester City level in a game they had struggled in.

Centre-back: Ashley Williams (Everton)

Somewhat predictably Williams went supernova under Sam Allardyce's guidance. The Welshman made 13 effective clearances to ensure Everton kept a clean sheet.

Centre-back: Marcos Rojo (Manchester United)

After a rough first-half, Marcos Rojo has a near superhuman second period as he suddenly found himself clearing damn near everything. 2 interceptions and a league-high 14 effective clearances as Manchester United repelled Arsenal's attacks.

Right-wing: Johann Gudmundsson (Burnley)

Gudmundsson was an incredible outlet on the wing for Burnley, completing 4/9 crosses and creating a league-high 5 chances.

Defensive midfield: Idrissa Gueye (Everton)

The defensive dynamo carried on his excellent form for Everton by helping shut down Huddersfield. 3/3 tackles won.

Central midfield: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

This glorious footballer created 4 chances for Manchester City against West Ham, most impressively his gorgeous cross that bent space and time to carve the West Ham defence apart and allow David Silva to score the winner.

Left-wing: Andros Townsend (Crystal Palace)

Townsend's form continues to improve for Crystal Palace. The winger created 5 chances, including 1 big chance, from his 11 crosses. Will be frustrated his strikers let him down.

Attacking midfield: Jesse Lingard (Manchester United)

The pocket dynamo absolutely stole the show at the Emirates Stadium with two goals for Manchester United. Two tidy finishes at the end of great team moves and some phenomenal pressing the highlights of a dynamic display.

Striker: Roberto Firmino (Liverpool)

Liverpool's no. 9 was in fabulous form against Brighton. His hold-up play, well-weighted lay-offs and sharp finishing saw the Reds go from 0-1 up to 0-3 and home free by half-time.

Striker: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)

A monstrous performance from the young Englishman. Charged to lead the Everton line by Sam Allardyce, he responded with a barely believable backheel assist and a crucial finish to hand the Toffees a huge win.
