Chelsea went on to win nine consecutive games in the Premier League allowing them to hold on their three-point lead, while surprisingly Manchester City and Liverpool both dropped points in miserable fashion.

Here we fill up the best set of players that gazed past us this weekend.

GOALKEEPER:

David De Gea(Manchester United): Manchester United won their first home game since September, and although the overall performance was to be fashioned for the elation, the vital saves by De Gea is to be considered a major boost. Showing no casualty, De Gea proved yet again what an important player he is for The Red Devils.


DEFENDERS:

Jose Holebas(Watford): The defender was key to their 3-2 win against The Toffees, as he set up goals for both Okaka and Prodl which eventually were scored in emphatic fashion, cancelling out Lukaku’s opener.

Virgil Van Dijk(Southampton): Van Dijk is undoubtedly the best Centre-Back in the English Premier League at the moment, as he again helped The Saints keep a clean-sheet with a sublime performance at the back, which ultimately led to a victory, thanks to Sofiane Boufal’s stunning strike.

Phil Jones(Manchester United): According to Phil Neville, Phil Jones has become Manchester United’s defensive mainstay. Well, he proved once more this week against Spurs why Neville was bang on, as it may seem Jose Mourinho might finally find his defensive stability in the coming weeks.

Cesar Azpilicueta(Chelsea): Chelsea are on a roll, and with a nine-game win on the trot, their’s no one stopping them now. Azpilicueta is playing some sensational football at the moment with his workload favouring Conte’s style.

MIDFIELDERS:

Wilfred Zaha(Crystal Palace): If not for their leaky defence, Crystal Palace would be a top team at the moment in terms of number of goals being scored every week. Wilfred Zaha happens to be the linkage of the final third game for the Londoners. This week he went to win a penalty, set up a goal and score one himself, but all for just a point.

Ander Herrera(Manchester United): I always believed that Herrera is a top player, just playing for the wrong manager when he arrived at United. This is a forgotten story now, as Mourinho has repeatedly made Herrera his key player in midfield as he is delivering more often than not. Although he set up the only goal of the match, he was an everpresent in the field where ever he was required.

Gylfi Sigurdsson(Swansea City): According to a recent analysis by a leading journal, Gylfi happens to be the most influencing player in the side. Since joining the Swans, he has been involved in 37.7% of the goals that Swansea have scored.

Henrick Mkhitaryan(Manchester United): Well, no one likes sitting on the bench every week, especially when you are of Mkhitaryan’s acme. When finally given a chance for a full ninety minutes, he craved it in style as he scored his first goal in the Premier League and Old Trafford. Although his ankle injury cut short his full debut as he was stretchered off.

FORWARDS:

Jamie Vardy(Leicester City): Vardy ended his 16 match goal drought with a clinical hat-trick that too against Manchester City. Leicester were three nil up within twenty minutes of the match, and a shaky start in defence never really gave City another chance to grab a comeback.

Stefano Okaka(Watford): A second half brace by the Italian staged a stunning comeback with his first Premier League goal scored in a compassionate way. It will be now interesting to see whether they he can hold on to his role at the club in the long run.
