The Premier League bounced back from the March international break on the weekend with no end of action or drama across the division.
Manchester City won again, but so did Liverpool to keep the title race alive. Tottenham also won by a good score to strengthen their claim to the Champions League, while it was more disappointing for Manchester United.
Everton lost again and are still nervously looking over their shoulders, but this time they were not punished by the lower teams.
Here’s a look at each Premier League club’s best player from week 31…
What we said: “He hit the wood with a long-distance punch.”
What we said: “Villa’s best player and he only managed 15 minutes.”
What we said: “What a blow! He put his foot through the ball to get Brentford into shape. Brilliant late run and finishing shot to give the Bees an incredible two goal lead.”
What we said: “He sent some shots from distance just outside the goal. He brought in a good save from Krul from distance. Probably the Seagulls’ biggest threat.”
What we said: “Burnley’s most brilliant outing on the rare occasions he was provided with possession in mid-town.”
What we said: “Industrious as ever and had plenty of drive forward. Unexpected assist for Rudiger before being sacrificed for a more offensive option.”
What we said: “One of the best in the Premier League in transition, and he showed his devastating talent once again. He made no mistake from the spot.”
What we said: “Drafted into the team after Donny van de Beek retired in warm-up. He got the free kick that led to the first goal, but made up for it with a goal. He moved into defense when Keane was sent off, culminating in a very eventful evening. He managed admirably.”
What we said: “Good return for the Leeds captain. Lead by example.”
What we said: “A good engine in midfield. He did his best to bring the spark that this match desperately needed.”
What we said: “Technically excellent, dictating the tempo from deep and playing a number of effervescent, precise passes. Best actor.”
What we said: “As well as charging into the box to score, De Bruyne was involved in every third of the pitch to lubricate City’s progression towards goal.”
What we said: “He made an absolute turnaround and seemed as likely as anyone to make something happen. He took his aim well.”
What we said: “A monster first half saw the Swiss pick the far corner with a wonderful shot.”
What we said: “I won a good number of defensive duels in the air. I led by example while Brighton huffed and puffed in front of goal.”
What we said: “Outstanding technique, beautiful passing. The class act on display at Elland Road.”
What we said: “He played like he wasn’t fit in the first half, but that definitely wasn’t the case in the second. His superb contributions from outside the box saw Spurs take the lead.”
What we said: “He did exceptionally well in keeping Salah quiet, nullifying the threat of the Premier League’s most feared marksman.”
What we said: “I had to lift the ball over Mykolenko to score, and he did it brilliantly. The game winner.”
What we said: “Absolutely ran the show in Ruben Neves’ absence. So graceful in possession.”
