After three straight defeats, Stoke finally got back to winning ways on Tuesday with a 3-0 win over Luton. Joe Allen (9.6) was the star of the show with two goals and an assist, while James McClean (8.5) recorded a goal and an assist of his own. They are joined by team-mate Jordan Cousins (7.5) who slots alongside Allen in midfield.

In attack, Andre Ayew (8.3) and Saïd Benrahma (7.7) make up the front three along with McClean after impressing for Swansea and Brentford respectively.

Jed Wallace (8.3) joins the midfield after scoring the opening goal in Millwall's win over Bristol City, before setting up what turned out to be the winning goal for Jake Cooper (7.9).

Alongside Cooper in the centre of defence is another goalscoring defender in Grant Hall (8.8), who squeezed in a strike from close range for QPR.

In the full-back positions are Maxime Colin (7.2) and Luke Ayling (7.5), while Rafael (7.7) is between the sticks after making seven saves to allow for Reading to keep hold of a point away at Barnsley.
