Tom Cairney (9.3) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (8.4) have proved that they are probably too good for the Championship this season, as their outing against Derby highlighted with the former completing more passes than anyone in the league this week, while the Serbian scored and was an all-round handful.

Mitrovic is joined in the forward line by Sammy Ameobi (8.2), who set-up two goals for Forest against QPR, and Steward Downing (7.8), who recorded an assist of his own as Blackburn defeated Brentford after moving further back positionally.

Izzy Brown (7.9) makes up the midfield three alongside Jarrod Bowen (9.6), who was the best player in the league this week with two goals and an assist for Hull against Derby.

Kieran Gibbs (7.6) and Dael Fry (7.7) feature in the full-back positions after wins for West Brom and Middlesbrough respectively, while in the centre of defence Christopher Schindler (7.9) and Dominic Iorfa (8.1) both set-up their teams only goal, as well as being solid at the back.

In goal, Brice Samba (7.8) kept a clean sheet for Forest at Loftus Road, making four saves.
