1) ALEX IWOBI (ARSENAL) – 7.41

The 19-year-old made it two Premier League goals in as many starts as he helped the Gunners maintain their feint title hopes with a convincing 4-0 win over Watford.

Iwobi, who was born in Nigeria, was in fine form throughout at the Emirates – doubling Arsenal’s lead, sweeping home from 12 yards after a team move.

Arsene Wenger has installed great faith in the youngster, who has now made 15 appearances in all competitions this season.

2) ALEXIS SANCHEZ (ARSENAL) – 7.38

The Chilean hit his 15th goal of the campaign, his eighth strike in the Premier League, as Arsenal routed the Hornets 4-0.

Sanchez has quickly formed a good understanding with Iwobi, with the two attackers both assisting each other on Saturday at the Emirates.

The partnership has maybe arrived too late to salvage the Gunners’ title bid but Arsenal will need Sanchez, who is expected to pen a new deal at the north London club, despite his recent revelation that Wenger has asked him to rest more against his will.

3) RUBEN LOFTUS-CHEEK (CHELSEA) – 7.15

The 20-year-old scored his first goal for the club in the routine success against basement boys Aston Villa, in his first full 90 minutes for the club in the Premier League.

Loftus-Cheek, who graduated through the Blues’ academy ranks, has quickly become a mainstay of Guus Hiddink side’s first-team, and Chelsea have high hopes for a player that they can call their own.

The England under-21 star, who scored with a deflected effort at Villa Park on Saturday, was handed a new five-year contract in February and is touted as being a future full international.

4) DIEUMERCI MBOKANI (NORWICH CITY) – 7.14

The on-loan forward from Dynamo Kyiv has proved to be an important acquisition for Alex Neil’s men this term, and he scored his fifth goal of the campaign, his first in eight matches, to help the Canaries beat Newcastle 3-2.

Mbokani, 30, smashed in a stunning effort in a man-of-the-match display as Norwich eased their relegation fears against the Magpies.

The DR Congo striker was recently caught up in the March 22 attacks at Brussels’ Zaventum Airport.

5) MARKO ARNAUTOVIC (STOKE CITY) – 6.95

The Austrian star, who has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the Brittania Stadium this summer, set-up Stoke’s opener in the 2-2 home draw with Swansea – laying the ball on for Ibrahim Afellay to head home.

Arnautovic didn’t manage to get on the scoresheet but came close to adding to the 11 Premier League goals he has hit this season, as Stoke’s European push took a hit.
