David De Gea

De Gea showed his masterpiece as one of the best goalkeepers at Vicarage road when he made great saves including a brilliant one in the last minute of the game which would have turned the table around.

Joe Gomez

Gomez was at it again when he made his mark to sustain Klopp’s idea as his potential full back. He was part of those who made Kane useless on the pitch and switched effectively to right back in the second half.

Chris Smalling

Smalling was humble on the pitch and ever ready to impress his manager, he scored a vital goal that helped the Red Devils to their second consecutive victories. His coordination at the back showed how he could stamp his shirt in Jose’s first XI.

Virgil van Dijk

No doubt he’s becoming the best defender in the world and most advantage is in his height, he was always there to help his team clear the ball away when the tempo was high against them.

James Milner

He was unarguably the finest midfielder on the pitch as he bossed the midfield with his runs and depth making sure his teammates took the 3points home.

Marouane Fellaini

The Belgian recovered possessions for his teammates 10 times which was more than any other player in matchday 5. He also provided the assist that led to Smalling’s goal.

R. Fraser

A diminutive player who used his centre of gravity to outplay Leicester after scoring a brace in the first half. His form has shown how prepared Bournemouth are this season as he helped secure a third victory for his team.

Eden Hazard

Fabulous! We could rate him as the best No.10 in England after watching what he played against Cardiff City. His goals can only be simple if done by him alone. Hazard has shown his prowess as an unstoppable player who ended up taking the match ball home with a hat-trick.

Wilfred Zaha

When he plays well, Crystal Palace hardly lose which we saw in a match that saw earned their second away victory. Many wonder why he remained with the Eagles, maybe, just maybe he is always at his best. He was really impressive and watching how he curled the ball into the net was my number one goal last week.

Roberto Firmino

He started brightly to score a quick goal which was ruled out in the first half but he was covering the depth of the field from box-to-box; he scored to extend the lead in the second half before getting injured.

Marko Arnautovic

The Austrian was impressive against Everton, he was the pivot to Pellegrini’s success at Goodison Park after scoring the 3rd goal that ended Everton’s come back home.
