Many players gave high-quality performances for their teams, most notably in the vibrant affair between Manchester City and Liverpool, in which both teams took an Etihad point.
There was plenty of entertainment elsewhere too, with Tottenham, Chelsea and Leeds United all winning by 3 goals or more. While it wasn’t a good weekend to be a defender, the forwards had a field day.
here is who does 101 team of the week.
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris (Tottenham)
In the end, what turned into a 4-0 Spurs win could have been a lot different had it not been for the veteran goalkeeper. The Tottenham captain made a number of fine saves in the first half to keep the score at 1-0, something that Spurs finally capitalized on in the second half.

RB: Seamus Coleman (Everton)
He kept Manchester United’s attacking left-back, whether it was Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford or Anthony Elanga, very calm as his side took the spoils 1-0. Despite his advanced age, he remains a valuable option for Frank Lampard.
CB: Liam Cooper (Leeds United)
All the emphasis has been on the absence of Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford this season, but Leeds United are equally dependent on club captain Liam Cooper, whose return was most welcome. His return saw him keep a clean sheet in their 3–0 victory over Watford.
Despite playing just 17 Premier League games this season, Liam Cooper has won 26 more aerial duels than any other Leeds player (71 in total) and won all seven yesterday against Watford. Leeds have only conceded one goal in the last 396 minutes with him on the pitch. #lufc pic.twitter.com/KuUAWhqTiR

CB: Dan Burn (Newcastle United)
Eyebrows were raised when Newcastle brought in Dan Burn on transfer deadline day, but he has more than returned the faith shown in him and vastly improved the Magpies’ defence.
LB: Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)
Pulled off the full-back against Real Madrid in midweek, Alonso showed just how important he can be to Thomas Tuchel with his performance against Southampton. He grabbed the first goal and provided a constant threat.
CM: Enock Mwepu (Brighton and Hove Albion)
The man of the match against Arsenal, Mwepu has seen limited game time for Brighton this season, but he ran the show at the Emirates Stadium. He capped off a fine performance with an equally sumptuous goal to double the Gaviota’s lead.
CM: Mason Mount (Chelsea)
Mount hasn’t grabbed the headlines as much this season as he did last, but he has flown under the radar as one of the best players in the division to date. Two goals against Southampton underlined it.
CM: Kevin DeBruyne (Manchester City)
He ran the show against Liverpool and was unlucky enough to be forced to settle for a share of the points. He scored the first goal and if it wasn’t for some profligacy from his teammates, he could have recorded more appearances.
OR: Heung-Min Son (Tottenham Hotspur)
Harry Kane Heung-Min Son’s telepathy continues to shine through, but it was the Korean who stole the headlines with a brilliant hat-trick against Aston Villa.

With both men shooting, Tottenham may lose a place in the top 4.
ST: Timo Werner (Chelsea)
Werner hasn’t had a fun time since joining Chelsea in 2020, but he had a field day against Southampton, scoring two goals that could have doubled were it not for the Saints’ goal wood.
Could this be a turning point?
IE: Anthony Gordon
A single flickering flame in a sea of darkness for Everton in recent weeks, the youngster proved to be the main threat and ultimately the difference maker as the Toffees took a huge step to safety, scoring the only goal. against Manchester United.
