Paul Pogba (8.4) and Kevin De Bruyne's (9.3) performances were among those that stood out the most in Premier League Round 11.

Pogba produced one of this best performances for Manchester United in 2020, scoring a brilliant curling equaliser and dominating West Ham in a dominant display.

De Bruyne, meanwhile, provided a goal, and assist, and so much more, as Manchester City gave Fulham no room to breathe in a 2-0 victory.

City had such control over the contest, three other players make the team; Rodri (8.6) at the base of the midfield, John Stones (8.1) in defence, and Riyad Mahrez (8.2), who can operate as the false nine in our team.

Crystal Palace's fantastic 5-1 win at West Brom - who, admittedly, were down to 10 men - was masterminded by Ebereche Eze (8.0) and Wilfried Zaha (8.8), the latter scoring two slick goals, the second of which set up by a mazy dribble from the former.

Mo Salah (8.2) returned to Liverpool's front line as they looked irresistible in the 4-0 defeat of Wolves, and he took his goal after taking advantage of a Conor Coady slip rather well indeed.

Elsewhere, Wesley Fofana (7.8) impressed in Leicester's win at Sheffield United, as did Jannik Vestergaard (8.0) during Southampton's triumph at Brighton. Finally, Dean Henderson (7.3), standing in for David de Gea, included a pre-assist as well as a series of saves to keep United in the game against West Ham.
