Every Premier League team’s player of the weekend: Gameweek 35 – XenBet

Another weekend of Premier League action is in the books, and with just three more gameweeks to go there’s plenty left to play for:

– Everton, Burnley and Leeds are embroiled in a relegation battle.

– Liverpool and Man City are fighting for the Premier League title.

– Tottenham and Arsenal are vying for fourth place.

So here’s the players who made the biggest difference for each of those teams this weekend, as well as all the other sides who don’t really have anything to play for anymore:

Arsenal – Rob Holding (8/10) vs West Ham United

What we said: “Made an important block at one end and then scored at the other a few minutes later to cap off a fine first half. Solid after the break.”

Aston Villa – Ollie Watkins (8/10) vs Norwich City

What we said: “Rifled his ninth goal of the season past Krul with tremendous power and a slight deflection. Worked hard all afternoon and linked up well with Ings.”

Brentford – Christian Eriksen (8/10) vs Man Utd

What we said: “His passing was a joy to behold. He popped up all over the place to kickstart his team’s attacks. Brentford will need a miracle to keep hold of him this summer on this form…”

Brighton – Yves Bissouma (8/10) vs Wolves

What we said: “Subtly went about his business before marking his return from a two-game suspension with a well-struck strike.”

Burnley – Jack Cork (8/10) vs Watford

What we said: “Struggled initially against a relentless Watford start but settled to give Burnley a foothold and gambled to get into the box to equalise and set the comeback in motion.”

Chelsea – Mason Mount (6/10) vs Everton

What we said: “Often the out ball. Wonderful piece of ball-juggling to get Chelsea up the pitch. Booked for a clash with pantomime villain Yerry Mina. Excellent volley but hit the post.”

Crystal Palace – Jeffrey Schlupp (7/10) vs Southampton

What we said: “Really energetic in midfield. Physical, yet graceful in the dribble. Would’ve had a higher rating if his touch had been better to convert his chance.”

Everton – Jordan Pickford (8/10) vs Chelsea

What we said: “Brilliant distribution and a made five match-winning second-half saves, including an incredible stop to deny Azpilicueta.”

Leeds United – Junior Firpo (5/10) vs Man City

What we said: “Got forward with real adventure and purpose, though City sought to exploit the space he left in behind.”

Leicester City – Kelechi Iheanacho (6/10) vs Tottenham

What we said: “Sharp to begin with but failed to cause Tottenham any real trouble until his stoppage time goal.”

Liverpool – Naby Keita (9/10) vs Newcastle United

What we said: “Hard to think of a better game Keita has ever played for Liverpool – brilliant goal, but was all over the pitch. Gives Jurgen Klopp something to think about in the next few weeks.”

Manchester City – Phil Foden (9/10) vs Leeds United

What we said: “Two killer set piece deliveries and one open play assist capped a great performance.”

Manchester United – Cristiano Ronaldo (8/10) vs Brentford

What we said: “Caught offside several times but made up for it by winning and converting a second-half penalty. Work rate was higher than usual and he led the line well.”

Newcastle United – Martin Dubravka (7/10) vs Liverpool

What we said: “Some very good saves and couldn’t do much with the goal. Kept the score down late on.”

Norwich City – Tim Krul (6/10) vs Aston Villa

What we said: “Smart save from Bailey’s cracking first half effort, could do nothing with Watkins’ goal.”

Southampton – Oriol Romeu (7/10) vs Crystal Palace

What we said: “Did well to get to his header and put enough power on it to panic Guaita.”

Tottenham Hotspur – Son Heung-min (10/10) vs Leicester City

What we said: “Another two goals and one assist for Tottenham’s most prolific player this season.”

Watford – Emmanuel Dennis (7/10) vs Burnley

What we said: “Moved all across the front line and asked serious questions of the Burnley defence and Pope.”

West Ham United – Jarrod Bowen (7/10) vs Arsenal

What we said: “Got fortunate for his goal but they all count. Picked up a booking for simulation early in the second half, but it was far from clear-cut.”

Wolves – Joao Moutinho (6/10) vs Brighton

What we said: “Peppered the match with some gasp-inducing, raking passes.”
