XHERDAN SHAQIRI (Stoke City) – 8.19

Shaqiri was instrumental in Stoke City’s 4-3 win over Everton at Goodison Park on Monday. He opened the scoring after just 17 minutes, converting a cleverly weighed pass from striker Marko Arnautovic.

His second goal though was a truly exquisite strike. Bojan came bounding through the middle and delivered a delicate pass over the top. The ball was still running down the right flank as Shaqiri swept a glorious right footed effort over the stranded head of Tim Howard and into the Everton net. 

ROMELU LUKAKU (Everton) – 8.14

Despite finishing on the losing team, Romelu Lukaku was formidable for Everton against Stoke City. The Toffees twice came before behind, with the Belgian international demonstrating why he’s one of the most in-form players in the league scoring his 17th and 18th goals of the campaign.

His first goal was the pick of the bunch. Collecting possession on the left, he sent Ross Barkley into space and continued his run. Barkley weaved a pass to James McCarthy, who played Lukaku in from ten metres to score.

ROBERT HUTH (Leicester) – 7.85

Robert Huth (l).

Bossed the game well from defence and made significant interventions to prevent Manchester City from getting the killer breakthrough. At times he was caught out by Raheem Sterling’s pace but overall, he proved to be a powerhouse for the Foxes.

MARKO ARNAUTOVIC (Stoke City) – 7.65

Sealed Stoke City’s latest victory with a 90th minute penalty having been taken down by Everton substitute Joselu. The penalty itself was magnificent as he smashed the ball straight down the middle of Tim Howard’s goal to make it 4-3.

Besides producing the final drama of this match, Arnautovic was involved in Shaqiri’s first goal as he played a neat one-two with Bojan before sending the Swiss star in from close range.

DARREN FLETCHER (West Brom) – 7.62

Darren Fletcher.

The Scottish star proved to be the hero in West Brom’s stunning 1-0 win against Newcastle at The Hawthorns with a goal 12 minutes from time. Despite the dour opening to this fixture, Fletcher looked at all times enthusiastic and led his team effectively from middle.

With the game edging towards a dull 0-0 draw, Fletcher rose unmarked to score after 78 minutes and hand his side the much-needed three points.
