Harry Kane was the best player of the Premier League weekend as he scored two and set up another in Tottenham's dramatic 3-3 draw at home to West Ham.

In the first half especially, the England striker was almost unplayable, initially setting up the opener for Son Heung-min before scoring two of his own.

His performance earned him a 9.6 FC Rating.

FootballCritic has taken some creative license with this week's Team of the Week as it basically has six forwards, but each player featured deserved their place more than most this weekend.

Joining Kane in the forward positions is Sadio Mane (8.1) and Timo Werner (9.4), who both got on the scoresheet for Liverpool and Chelsea respectively, with the German scoring two.

In the attack-minded midfield, Marcus Rashford (9.2) and Bruno Fernandes (9.2) feature after their excellent displays versus Newcastle.

Ross Barkley (7.8) continued his flying start to his Aston Villa career by scoring the dramatic, late winner against Sheffield Utd.

In perhaps the biggest match of the weekend, Raheem Sterling (7.9) proved to be the match winner for Man City versus Arsenal, scoring the solitary goal of the game.

In defence, Wesley Fofana (7.8) enjoyed a solid debut for Leicester despite eventually being on the losing side, while the same could be set for Chris Basham (7.8), who didn't deserve to be on a losing side against Villa.

After a torrid week previous, Harry Maguire (7.9) got back to form and even got on the scoresheet for Man Utd.

Nick Pope (8.3) made six saves as Burnley kept a clean sheet away at West Brom in the only 0-0 draw of the round.
