The Premier League hosted all 20 teams this weekend, with some brilliant matches and individual performances on display. 

Tottenham Hotspur finished top on a weekend in which many of the league’s big teams failed to win. Spurs themselves were held to a draw away at Crystal Palace and Liverpool fell to the same 1-1 scoreline away at Fulham.

The Manchester derby failed to live up to its hype, producing a drab 0-0 draw, but there were some big performances from Leicester City and Southampton who comprehensively beat Brighton & Hove Albion and Sheffield United respectively.

West Ham United secured a brilliant three points at Elland Road on Friday night, whilst Burnley and Everton secure brilliant 1-0 wins against Arsenal and Chelsea.

Aston Villa beat Midlands rivals Aston Villa in dramatic fashion on Saturday, whilst Newcastle United overcame West Bromwich Albion to gain all three points also.

Across the ten games, a bunch of individuals put in impressive displays for their teams.

But who were the standout stars?

Here we select our top-5 Premier League players from the weekend’s fixtures…

Burnley went into their match away to Arsenal in the relegation zone, with Fulham having just gained a decent point against Premier League champions Liverpool. Despite the Gunners being blunt in attack in recent weeks, goalkeeper Nick Pope would have known he would be in for a busy night. Six saves and a clean sheet helped give the North West side a historic victory in London.
