Liverpool were in tremendous form in the Merseyside Derby this week as they defeated Everton 5-2 at Anfield. Sadio Mane (9.4) was the star of the show with a goal and two assists, one of which came for Divock Origi (8.6), who, like usual, made the most of a rare start by scoring two of his own. His second, a beautiful touch and lob over Jordan Pickford, was the goal of the week. Team-mate Georginio Wijnaldum (8.3) earns a place in midfield after his goal, too.

Joining the Liverpool lads in attack is Marcus Rashford (8.5) who was superb as Manchester United pulled out a surprising performance to beat Tottenham 2-1, with the Englishman grabbing both goals.

Two Manchester City pass masters feature in midfield as Bernardo Silva (8.7) set up two of his side's goals versus Burnley, while Rodri (9.1) complemented his usual high passing stats with a wonderful strike screwed high into the roof of the net from the edge of the box.

In defence, Leicester prove to be the Premier League benchmark as they have still just conceded nine goals in 15 games. They kept another clean sheet against Watford, with Christian Fuchs (7.9), Caglar Soyuncu (7.8), and Ricardo Pereira (8.5) impressing - again.

Dejan Lovren (8.1) is in there after his glorious assist for the aforementioned Origi cracker.

Newcastle beat Sheffield United away from home, and have goalkeeper Martin Dubravka (8.4) to thank for the three points as he made six saves throughout the course of the game.
