Premier League Awards: McTominay at the double!

Our weekly Premier League awards honour the best – and worst – of the football action from the weekend.

Moment of the Week

The headline act of the Premier League weekend took place in north London on Sunday afternoon, as last season’s top two went head-to-head in a seismic showdown. Arsenal might be viewed as the closest challengers to Manchester City’s throne again this season, but recent encounters have been a mismatch with City having won 12 straight games against the Gunners.

City headed into the game having lost their last two domestically and the absence of the suspended Rodri had created a chink in the champion’s armour. Arsenal – suffering from their own big name absence in Bukayo Saka – finally cracked the City code with Gabriel Martinelli’s late goal securing a 1-0 win and sending the Emirates into euphoria.

Arsenal climbed above their beaten opponents and remain unbeaten this season, level on points with north London rivals Tottenham at the top of the division.

It’s early days, but just four points currently separate the top six. Could we see a multi-club title race this season?

Player of the Week

Rightly or wrongly, Scott McTominay has taken his fair share of criticism at Manchester United.

Just imagine how it must have felt then, for the midfielder to rescue his side late on this weekend. Manchester United were heading toward another damaging defeat as the Red Devils trailed Brentford in the closing stages at Old Trafford, with McTominay thrown on in the 87th minute in a bid to inject energy into a lifeless performance.

Erik ten Hag’s tactical change worked wonders as the midfielder turned defeat into victory, firing in an excellent 93rd minute equaliser, before repeating the trick moments later to head home a dramatic decider.

🔄 Comes on in the 87th minute.
⚽️ Equalises in the 93rd minute.
⚽️ Wins it in the 97th minute.

The Red Devils trailed Brentford with 92:46 on the clock before McTominay’s dramatic double, a win which should keep the wolf from the door for Ten Hag – for now.


An honourable mention must go to Raheem Sterling, who was electric in Chelsea’s 4-1 win at Burnley. Left out of the England squad once again this week, this was the perfect statement to send to Gareth Southgate.

Goal of the Week

Everton bounced back from last weekend’s loss to Luton with a comfortable win against Bournemouth.

Jack Harrison settled the nerves of the Everton fans with his side’s second, opening his account for the Toffees in stunning style.

Miss of the Week

If Luton are to survive this season, the Hatters are going to need to make the most of opportunities like this.

Elijah Adebayo was guilty of wasting a glorious chance against Tottenham, somehow spurning this chance with the game goalless. Luton went on to lose 1-0, despite spending the entire second half with a man advantage.

Donkey of the Week

Speaking of that man advantage…

Yellow cards have been dished out like sweets this season, so perhaps Yves Bissouma should have thought better than to commit the most blatant dive imaginable when he was already on a booking against Luton on Saturday.

We’re big fans of Bissouma’s bounce back at Spurs this season, but this was utterly absurd.

Stat of the Week

Manchester United have had no shortage of thrilling comebacks in the Premier League era, but even by their standards this weekend’s late show against Brentford was well… late.
