Liverpool extended their lead over champions Manchester City to 14 points in the Premier League on Saturday after their professional 3-0 away victory versus Bournemouth. Naby Keita (9.9) put in arguably the best performance of his career with the team, scoring one and assisting another. Jordan Henderson (9.4) was the pass master in the middle of the park, completing 139 passes to team-mates and having more touches (160) than anyone else in the league this weekend. They are joined by fellow Red, Virgil van DIjk (8.4).

There are plenty of goals in the forward line, as Harry Kane (9.2), Diogo Jota (8.7), and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (8.8) all scored a double for Tottenham, Wolves, and Everton respectively.

Dale Stephens (9.8) joins Keita and Henderson in midfield for his combative performance and assist for Brighton against Wolves.

Jonny Evans (7.8) slots in beside Van Dijk in the centre of defence after scoring for Leicester, while Djibril Sidibe (7.9) and Jan Vertonghen (8.9) make up the rest of the back four.

In goal is Vicente Guaita (7.7) after his clean sheet for Crystal Palace in the 0-0 draw away at Watford.
