Danny Ings scored the only goal of the match this week as Southampton ran out narrow 1-0 winners over Tottenham, with his strike coming 17 minutes in. The Saints caused trouble for Jose Mourinho's men all afternoon with balls over the top, and it was via one of these from Jack Stephens which gave them the lead, as Ings latched on to it before cleverly flicking a lofted touch over the head of Toby Alderweireld, which allowed him to bounce a composed left-footed finish into the bottom right corner.


Where would Aston Villa be without Jack Grealish? On New Year's Day he proved to be the match winner again for his side with the second goal away at Burnley, which was won 2-1. After collecting the ball on the edge of the box, he shifts possession on to his right foot before lashing a unstoppable attempt into the top left corner, with the keeper caught out at his front post.


When James Maddison finds the back of the net, it tends to be a belter and this effort against Newcastle is no different. Leicester may have had the freedom of St. James' Park to do as they pleased, but the Englishman still impressed with his cut inside on to his left foot before rifling a cracking shot into the top left corner.


It has been a good week for Leicester as they followed up their win over West Ham with the aforementioned victory over Newcastle. With them cruising 2-0 up against the Magpies, their afternoon got even better as Hamza Choudhury scored his first goal for the club, and what a goal it was. He holds his position at the edge of the box to receive the layoff from Wilfred Ndidi before sending a beautiful, arrowed shot into the top right corner, which cannons in off the stanchion.


It is no surprise that Alireza Jahanbakhsh earns the top spot here, as he lit up the Premier League on the first day of the year with an incredible overhead/bicycle kick sent into the bottom left corner. Not only that, but it came with just six minutes to go as Brighton secured a point at home to Chelsea.
