Everton strikers have come and gone in the past few years but Calvert-Lewin has always been there and been a good option for many a manager. Now, he seems in a position to stake his claim to be the undisputed No. 1 and his poacher's double against Newcastle will go a long way to confirming that opinion. He slotted home in either half from a combined total of 10 yards, but his all-round play was excellent, winning nine duels and fifteen aerials as he led the line for his side.
Tottenham's defence were offered up gifts at Norwich but Christian Eriksen's display dragged his side to a point from a precarious position. He swerved home a vicious free-kick from the edge of the area to level it up, then it was his build-up that allowed Harry Kane to win a penalty for 2-2. He completed 84 of his 95 passes and set himself up as the Eriksen of last season, dictating operations for his side.
Nigel Pearson's good work at Watford can't be underestimated and he seems to be getting the best out of Troy Deeney once again, with the veteran forward producing a virtuoso display to punish Aston Villa. He pounced on a goalkeeper spillage in the first half to slide home, then won the penalty that he himself converted to give his team daylight. He made a total nuisance of himself all afternoon and when Deeney is in form, Watford are a different team.
Zinchenko is arguably Man City's most reliable full-back option and they have sorely missed his build-up play in the past month as he sat things out with injury. It was a low-key City display but Zinchenko proved to be the playmaker from full-back; only team-mate Rodri had more touches (133) in the Premier League in this round, and he completed 101 of his 108 passes in the contest, but no-one played the ball into the final third more. Add in 4/5 tackles won and seven recoveries, and it was a thoroughly composed performance from the Ukrainian.
Like Deeney, Capoue's form impacts Watford positively or negatively and he is showing signs of returning to his best, as he dragged his team, who had 10 men in the second half, to a vital 3-0 win over Aston Villa. His passing was excellent, particularly when his team were a man down, and his seven recoveries and five clearances were topped off by a bursting assist to seal the win in the closing stages.
Jorginho's (8.2) introduction into the contest against Arsenal ultimately changed the course of the match in his side's favour.
ROUND TO FORGET
Charlie Taylor's (5.2) blunder allowed Anthony Martial an easy goal and gave Burnley a mountain to climb.
