Foster may have been on the losing side this weekend but the former England international was in superb form, making eight saves against Chelsea – including three world class stops.

The Hornets goalkeeper was also busy at the other end as he almost secured a dramatic equaliser with a late header, only to see his effort saved by opposite number Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Walker appeared to have lost his starting berth to Joao Cancelo in recent weeks but the flying full-back returned in style against Southampton, providing an assist for Aguero before scoring the late winner.

Soyuncu has stepped up following the departure of Harry Maguire to Manchester United and shone once again this weekend, scoring the opener against Palace before helping the Foxes secure a shut-out.

Duffy has lost his place to Adam Webster in recent weeks but was called upon when his team-mate suffered an unfortunate ankle injury against Norwich.

The Irish centre-back quickly rekindled his partnership with Lewis Dunk and looked like he’d never been away, aiding the Seagulls on their way to a fourth clean sheet of the season while adding a second goal late on.

The Scottish international has an inexhaustible engine and used it to great effect against Villa, bombing down the left and arriving at just the right time to head Liverpool level.

Saint-Maximin failed to get on the scoresheet against West Ham but the Frenchman was an absolute menace at the London Stadium, causing problems for the opposition all afternoon in a vital win for the Magpies.

As Fantasy Premier League managers will know, the form of John Lundstram has been a revelation this season after many expected the midfielder to play a bit-part role for the Blades this season.

But the 25-year-old has been an almost ever-present in Chris Wilder’s side and popped up with two valuable goals in the 3-0 win over Burnley.

Leicester are on a roll right now with Brendan Rodgers’ side up to third in the table, and Maddison was at the heart of their comfortable victory over Palace.

With Mohamed Salah enduring a difficult afternoon, it was left for Mane to drive Liverpool on with the Senegalese forward providing an assist for Robertson before scoring the winner with seconds remaining.

He also supplied an assist for Roberto Firmino’s goal which was controversially ruled out by VAR.

Bournemouth have struggled for goals in recent weeks with Wilson having failed to find the net since GW7.

However, King was on hand to punish a poor Manchester United side with a lovely piece of skill to find space in the area and volley home.

Abraham has firmly established himself as first choice at Chelsea an proved his value to Frank Lampard with another goal and an assist against Watford.
