Kevin De Bruyne's (9.4) performance in the hammering of Arsenal at the Emirates was on another level, his two goals of the highest quality, and he slots in our team of the week with an offensive front three ahead of him.

Lucas Moura (8.0) is squeezed into the team on the left following his blistering strike against Wolves, who themselves have Adama Traore (8.4) scoring a brilliant goal. Through the middle, Mo Salah (8.7) is in courtesy of his two goals, the second a cheeky flick into the net.

Behind De Bruyne, Sheffield United's midfield continue to impress, with both Oliver Norwood (7.9) and John Fleck (8.7), the latter scoring twice in the win over Aston Villa, included, and they are joined by Wilfred Ndidi (7.8).

Defensively, Joe Gomez (7.9) returns to form, as does Nicolas Otamendi (7.8) in keeping a clean sheet at Arsenal. Completing the back line is Kurt Zouma (8.5), blameless in Chelsea's home defeat to Bournemouth.

Vicente Guaita's (8.8) awesome point-blank save from Neal Maupay helped earn his side a point versus Brighton and ensures he completes the line-up.
