So who makes up this week’s top five? 

1) ROMELU LUKAKU (Everton) – 8.19

Everton’s 3-1 rout of Chelsea was the most significant victory of the round and despite not scoring any goals, the pace and vision of Lukaku up front was enough to remind Chelsea of what they missed out on. Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begović reserved his best form for Lukaku and kept out three of the burly Belgian’s shots.

2) SEAMUS COLEMAN (Everton) – 8.14

The Irish defender had a solid game at the back with Diego Costa simply not finding any space to escape and produce a decent shot on goal. The only disappointing aspect of Coleman’s day came when injury forced him to hobble from the field towards the end.

3) JOHN STONES (Everton) – 8.10

Roberto Martinez started John Stones despite the summer saga of Chelsea’s failed efforts to sign him, and the young England defender responded with a superb display. The Englishman snuffed out Cesar Azpilicueta’s chance near the Everton goal and combined superbly with Coleman to form an almost impenetrable wall.

4) VINCENT KOMPANY (Manchester City) – 8.05

Teenage goalscorer Kelechi Iheanacho stole the headlines in Manchester City’s away win but the most telling statistic was that the Sky Blues recorded a record sixth clean sheet in succession. This is mostly down to Kompany’s return to form this season and the City skipper will be key if the Mancunians are to cause Juventus problems in the Champions League.

5) TIM HOWARD (Everton) – 7.95

A key component of a resolute defence that has seen Everton surge into the top half of the Premier League has been evergreen goalkeeper Tim Howard. A magnificent long-range strike from the defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic was a rare moment of discomfort against Chelsea but the American’s defensive organisation kept the Londoner’s quiet for the rest of the game.
