1. VINCENT KOMPANY (MANCHESTER CITY) – 8.4

The Manchester City captain scored his first Premier League goal in nearly two years on Saturday in trademark fashion. Kompany towered above the rest to head home a David Silva corner-kick to break the deadlock away to Southampton.

Apart from being solid at the back, his effort was a vital contribution as the Citizens were kept at bay in the first half but his 55th minute goal paved the way for two more strikes that would see the visitors come away with a 3-0 win.


2. MARKO ARNAUTOVIC (STOKE CITY) – 8.2

Arnautovic set the tone for a Stoke City win on Saturday when he breezed past a couple of defenders before curling home a beauty from range inside the opening six minutes.

The Austrian was a thorn in Hull City’s side throughout and nearly scored another belter when he latched onto Xherdan Shaqiri’s chipped ball forward with an emphatic volley that missed the target.

3. ANDER HERRERA (MANCHESTER UNITED) – 8.2

The Manchester United midfielder played like a man possessed against Chelsea on Sunday and definitely exorcised a few demons after his sending off in the FA Cup defeat to Antonio Conte’s men earlier this year.

He produced the assist for the first goal and scored the second himself. Much of his contribution came off the ball though as he hounded Eden Hazard, suffocating the Belgian of any space to operate.


4. HARRY KANE (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR) – 7.6

Back in the staring line-up and back amongst the goals. Kane marked his first start since recovering from an injury with a goal and an assist.

His flick on for Heung-Min Son saw Spurs doubled their lead inside 20 minutes before a clever turn inside the box saw him score the third in a 4-0 win at White Hart Lane.


5. HEUNG-MIN SON (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR) 7.6

Son is enjoying a really good run of form and scored again on Saturday. Despite Kane’s return to the side, his form has seen him used on the left flank from where he’s been able to operate in more space and has taken full advantage of it.

He showed great acceleration to leave Francis for dead to burst into the box before nutmegging the keeper with his finish.
