RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)

CB: Luke Ayling (Leeds United)

Although Luke Ayling had some tricky moments in defence on the right side of the back three, the Englishman made a telling contribution in both of Leeds United’s first-half goals.

CB: Conor Coady (Wolves)

The Wolves captain marshalled his defence superbly throughout the 90 minutes before scoring a deserved goal in the second-half from a corner to give Bruno Lage’s side some comfort. 

LB: Joao Cancelo (Manchester City)

Joao Cancelo registered his 5th Premier League assist of the season against Chelsea at the weekend, and the Portuguese full-back delivered some brilliant line-breaking passes in the first half to help Manchester City break down the Chelsea deep block.

CM: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

Kevin De Bruyne haunted his former side in the top of the table clash at the Etihad, scoring the only goal of the game to help Manchester City extend their winning run in the Premier League to 12 points and take an 11-point lead at the top of the table.

CM: Fabinho (Liverpool)

Fabinho opened the scoring for Liverpool against Brentford with a neatly placed header from a corner, and the Brazilian midfielder ran the game from the base of midfield, completing 91% of his 75 passes and winning eight of his 11 duels.

CM: Jacob Ramsey (Aston Villa)

20-year-old Jacob Ramsey enjoyed a stellar performance against Manchester United at Villa Park, adding plenty of dynamism and energy from midfield while also registering a goal and assist to help Steven Gerrard’s side overcome a 2-0 deficit in the final 15 minutes.

RW: Philippe Coutinho (Aston Villa)

Philippe Coutinho changed the game for Aston Villa after coming off the bench for his debut against Manchester United. The Barcelona loanee created Villa’s first goal with a driving run into the penalty area before scoring the equaliser in the final ten minutes with a simple tap-in past David de Gea.

ST: Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)

After scoring only one Premier League goal in his past 14 appearances, Bruno Fernandes finally got back on the scoresheet for Manchester United against Aston Villa with a brace. Although the Portuguese benefitted from some good fortune with his first goal, Fernandes doubled United’s lead in the second half with a superb strike that went in off the crossbar.

LW: Jack Harrison (Leeds United)

Jack Harrison scored an outstanding hat-trick in a rollercoaster 3-2 encounter at the London Stadium against West Ham to give Leeds United a much-needed three points in their race for survival.

Manager of the week: Pep Guardiola (Manchester City)
