Bruno Fernandes was the Premier League's top performer of the weekend for round eight and leads FootballCritic's Team of the Week.

The former Sporting man earned a 9.4 FC Rating for his performance against Everton which saw him score two goals and record an assist in the 3-1 win. One of his goals was meant as a cross for Marcus Rashford, but he won't care.

One of the more surprising results of the weekend saw Aston Villa win 3-0 away at Arsenal. Ollie Watkins (9.1) was key to that win with two goals.

He is joined in attack by two fellow Premier League new boys in Eberechi Eze (8.7), who scored a magnificent free-kick against Leeds as well as recording an assist, and Hakim Ziyech (8.9), who set up two goals in Chelsea's win against Sheffield Utd.

Stuart Armstrong (7.9) and N'Golo Kante (8.1) make up the midfield alongside Fernandes.

Thiago Silva (7.7) may have endured a horrid start to his Premier League career with that mistake against West Brom, but since then he has been excellent, and scored his first goal in the league with a towering header versus Sheffield Utd on Saturday.

Another Chelsea signing Ben Chilwell (7.7) got on the scoresheet, too.

Scott Dann (7.7) scored a rare goal for Crystal Palace, while Kyle Walker-Peters (7.6) features at right-back.

Nick Pope (7.9) made three key saves as Burnley earned a 0-0 draw away at Brighton.
