Fabian Schar – Newcastle

A clean sheet and two goals for a centre-back who had never scored in the Premier League makes it a pretty good day out for the Swiss defender.

James Tarkowski – Burnley

The English centre-half put in a commanding performance at the back for the Clarets, winning 14 of his 20 duels, blocking a number of shots, and even clearing an effort off the line.

Laurent Koscielny – Arsenal

After such a long spell on the sidelines, the Arsenal captain showed he was back to his best, with Chelsea only managing to get just one shot on target in the entire 90 minutes. Not only that, but the 31-year-old found the back of the net himself, although he didn’t really have much control over his ‘header’, which sailed in off of his shoulder.

Hector Bellerin – Arsenal

An impressive performance both going forwards and back, with the Spaniard assisting Alexandre Lacazette’s fine opening goal. Arsenal will be hoping his injury isn’t too serious.

James Ward-Prowse – Southampton

His stunning goal set Southampton on the way to a vital 2-1 win over Everton to steer them clear of the drop zone, giving Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side their fourth win in just eight games.

Mohamed Salah – Liverpool

Scored what could prove to be two very important goals in the scheme of the title race in what was an exhilarating game of football at Anfield in the 4-3 win over Crystal Palace. He now has 16 for the season, two more than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the injured Harry Kane.

Diogo Jota – Wolves

Became only the second Portuguese to ever score a Premier League hat-trick on Saturday afternoon, when his three goals helped Wolves to a last gasp 4-3 win over Leicester in what was an incredible game of football down at Molineux.
