Premier League fans were treated to a thrilling weekend of top flight action, with thrilling draws, comeback wins and predictably, a Liverpool victory.
The league leaders continued their pursuit of the Premier League crown by thrashing Southampton at Anfield, their lead extending to 22 points after nearest challengers Manchester City and Leicester both dropped points.
Spurs and Manchester United fans were both treated to their first glimpses of marquee signings Steven Bergwijn and Bruno Fernandes, whilst down at the bottom there was mixed fortunes for the likes of Bournemouth, Aston Villa and West Ham, the latter worryingly dropping into the relegation places after squandering a two-goal lead against Brighton.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Arsenal £2.06 (+0.02)
Despite firing a blank upon his return from suspension, the Arsenal captain is amongst the risers in the Premier League this week, seeing his price rise marginally rise to £2.06.
The Gabon international remains one of the division’s finest forwards and has scored 14 Premier League goals for the season so far, just three short of Leicester’s Jamie Vardy as he seeks to win a second consecutive Golden Boot, Aubameyang having shared the honour alongside Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah last season.
Aubameyang’s price has risen steadily from £1.98 since the 19th January, the 30-year-old having been linked with a move to the likes of Barcelona in recent months.
Sadio Mane – Liverpool £3.11 (+0.05)
Liverpool’s Senegalese star may have missed the club’s past few fixtures through injury, but that has not stopped his price from rising with the Football Index.
Mane’s price has risen by £0.05p per share over the last 24 hours, giving the forward a share price of £3.11, the 36th highest in world football, just behind Reds teammate Virgil van Dijk.
One of the stars of the Premier League so far this season, his price may continue to rise as Liverpool continue their seemingly unstoppable march towards the league title, his previous high being £3.22 back in December.
Dwight McNeil – Burnley £1.86 (+0.08)
One of an exciting collection of young, English talents currently plying their trade in the Premier League, McNeil has seen his price rise due to some excellent performances for Sean Dyche’s Burnley in recent weeks.
The CIES Football Observatory recently valued McNeil at more than €50 million, those figures are also reflected in his increasing share price in the Football Index, the youngster’s price having almost doubled since this time last year.
Tipped with a move to bigger things in the future, McNeil’s stocks are is currently trading at £1.86 per share, up £0.08p following his showing against Arsenal at the weekend.
Jordan Henderson – Liverpool £1.58 (+0.09)
The Liverpool captain’s career best form has seen him emerge as one of the Premier League’s biggest price risers, Henderson’s share price increasing by £0.09p to a figure of £1.58 per share.
The midfielder’s continued excellence has seen Jurgen Klopp’s side move within touching distance of a first league title in 30 years, whilst the 29-year-old is now even being backed by the bookmakers as the favourite to claim the Footballer of the Year awards.
Few would have anticipated the season Henderson is currently enjoying, but he is being backed to continue those displays with investors securing shares despite his rising price in the Football Index, his stock value trebling in value since early December.

Steven Bergwijn – Tottenham Hotspur £2.36 (+0.20)
Already the Premier League’s big mover ahead of securing a move to Tottenham, Bergwijn has since announced himself to the Premier League with a stunning goal on debut against Manchester City.
After some strong seasons in the Eredivisie, Bergwijn will now have the opportunity to demonstrate his talents to a much wider platform, which is likely to see his price continue to rise.

— Football Index (@FootballIndex) February 2, 2020
The 22-year-old’s share price has sky-rocketed by 11.8% over the last 24 hours alone, and is up by 43% in the last fortnight having being valued at £1.65 on Jan 22nd.
His transfer and subsequent fine debut display saw him pick up 1020 media points, earning a tidy little divided for investors.
Those invested in the winger will hope for more of the same in the coming weeks, and with Spurs in midweek FA Cup action, another good performance could see further rises from the Dutchman.
