Man Utd were forced to come back from behind yet again this season as they eventually won 3-2 versus Sheffield United despite conceding early on in this midweek round of Premier League fixtures.

The best performer of the round was actually Sheffield United's David McGoldrick (9.1) who was unlucky to be on the losing side after scoring twice against United in the match at Bramall Lane.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can be grateful that he had an in-form Marcus Rashford (8.8) and Anthony Martial (8.5) at his disposal, though, with the England striker scoring two and Martial scoring one and recording an assist.

United were particularly impressive for their third goal, which proved to be the winning goal, as they were lightning quick on the counter.

Raheem Sterling (8.0) features on the right wing after hs assist and overall outing for Man City in the draw versus West Brom on Tuesday.

His assist for City came for Ilkay Gundogan (8.8), who scored City's only goal of the game with a lashed finish from his team-mate's cutback. The German completed 98/106 attempted passes and was in the top five for the amount of touches in this round of fixtures with 121.

Also in midfield is Curtis Jones (8.4) who was Liverpool's best player in the late win at home to Spurs. His work in possession was quite magnificent as he completed 106/113 passes against Jose Mourinho's side which was a higher tally than anyone this week.

The winner came near injury time for the champions in that one, thanks to Andy Robertson's (7.9) corner headed home by Roberto Firmino.

In the centre of defence is Brighton's Adam Webster (8.2) and Fabinho (7.8) who continues to deputise superbly for the injured Virgil van Dijk.

Vladimir Coufal (8.2) recorded an assist for West Ham and won an impressive 8/10 duels in the draw versus Palace, and slots in at right-back.

Hugo Lloris (8.2) was fantastic in goal for Tottenham and can curse his luck he wasn't on a winning side, as he made no less than nine saves to keep Spurs in the match until the very end.
