Chris Wood put in his best performance of the season over the weekend as Burnley demolished Wolves 4-0 at Molineux in the Premier League.

The big striker contributed to all four goals as he bagged a hat-trick while recording an assist for the other, earning himself a perfect 10 FC Rating.

Wood's (10) three goals all came within close proximity to the goal as it was a real predatory performance on the day.

Joining him in the front three is Burnley team-mate Dwight McNeil (8.9), who set up two of Wood's goals with an unselfish squared pass inside the box and then a wicked delivery from a corner-kick.

McNeil also made more ball recoveries (16) than any other player in this round of fixtures.

Making up the strikeforce is Kelechi Iheanacho (8.0), who recorded a goal and an assist for Leicester on Monday night versus Crystal Palace.

One more Burnley star features in the Team of the Week in Ashley Westwood (7.7), who completed the rout against Wolves with the goal of the game - a brilliant, drilled effort into the top left corner.

Mason Mount (7.9) was again Chelsea's best player as the Blues squeezed out a 1-0 away win at West Ham. He misplaced just five passes the entire game and sent a huge 32 passes into the final third which was the fourth-best tally of any player this weekend.

Yves Bissouma (7.6) was unlucky to be on the losing side for Brighton against Sheffield United as he completed 53/56 passes and also won 10/12 duels.

At left-back is Andy Robertson (7.7) who was a real outlet on the left wing for Liverpool as displayed by his enormous tally of 122 touches which can only be bettered by one other player this weekend. He completed 86 passes, won 8/11 duels, and sent six successful crosses into the box, too.

On the opposite flank is Aaron Wan-Bissaka (7.6). He won the majority of his duels and made seven ball recoveries, five interceptions, and four clearances.

Pascal Struijk (7.7) and Ben Godfey (7.5) feature in the centre of defence for their clean sheets earned against Manchester United and Arsenal respectively.

Newcastle remarkably stole a point in a 1-1 draw against Liverpool largely due to the performance of Martin Dubravka (8.4), who made no less than eight key saves to keep the Magpies in the game before the last minute equaliser.
