Central attacking midfield: Nacer Chadli – Chadli was a menace to West Ham and on his home debut for West Brom, scored twice and created two goals in the 4-2 win. 11 11 11 11 Holding midfielder: James McArthur (Crystal Palace) – A wonderful performance in the middle during Palace’s 4-1 win against Stoke, which was capped with a goal. 11 Right back: Seamus Coleman (Everton) – What a goal from the full back in what was a star performance for Everton in the 3-1 win against Boro. 11 11 Centre back: Dejan Lovren (Liverpool) – Impressive against Chelsea and scored, too. The partnership with Joel Matip looks promising. Left back: Christian Fuchs (Leicester) – Fuchs starred in Leicester’s 3-0 win against Burnley and his free-kick was met by Islam Slimani for one of his two goals. 11 11 Wide forward: Raheem Sterling (Man City) – He bamboozled the opposition, he won the ball, he set up a goal and he scored one himself. Sterling’s afternoon against Bournemouth was perfect. Goalkeeper: Jordan Pickford (Sunderland) – scroll through the gallery to see the weekend’s 11 best Premier League players – Without the goalkeeper, Tottenham could have scored more than just the one goal. Wide forward: Heung-min Son (Tottenham) – Son’s man of the match display was well deserved and he gave Sunderland’s Jason Denayer a torrid time. “He put a couple of great crosses into the box and he should have had an assist if people went to meet his ball,” said Sky Sports’ Thierry Henry. 11 Second striker: Kevin de Bruyne (Man City) – Man City destroyed Bournemouth and De Bruyne was key. He scored one and created another. 11 Striker: Islam Slimani (Leicester) – Slimani is Leicester’s record signing at £30m and thumped in two goals on his home debut.last_img read more
