Sergio Aguero Struck a second Hat Trick in three Games as Manchester City thumped Chelsea 6-0 to Proceed above Liverpool along with the Premier League.
Tottenham maintained themselves at the title search by watching off Leicester 3 1 and Liverpool did their role with beating Bournemouth 3-0 while his Merseyside rivals Everton lost for the third time in a row, even going down 1-0 at Watford.
Cardiff’s last-gasp 2-1 triumph at Southampton appears huge in the relegation battle and Burnley’s 3-1 triumph at Brighton did them no more harm in establishing breathing distance from the bottom three.
It had been a thrilling weekend – but which players earned a spot within my team?
Heaton’s save from Solly March at Brighton wasn’t poor but the only from Pascal Gross was class. It had been the goal-bound hit from March I destroyed any chance of Brighton becoming back into this match and presumed was top notch.
Heaton is right back between the sticks and appearing magnificent. Joe Hart had better begin looking for another club, When he keeps playing like that.
Were you aware? Tom Heaton has preserved 80 percent of those shots he’s faced in the Premier League this year – a greater percent than team-mate Joe Hart (65%).
Defenders – Chris Smalling (Man Utd), Sol Bamba (Cardiff), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool)
Georginio Wijnaldum: vomiting and diarrhea may sweep through a club like wildfire. When one of your celebrity players involves training afflicted by the signs so imagine. Panic ensues!
Not so with Liverpool and also Georginio Wijnaldum. The Netherlands international produced a superb performance along with insisted he would play.
Were you aware? Because the beginning of the year, Liverpool have won 66 percent of the Premier League matches which Wijnaldum has appeared in, in contrast to 50 percent when he hasn’t.
The France midfielder scored two goals and also spent a lot of their match drifting around Craven Cottage like he had been the Lord of the Manor.
He then came off the field after 74 minutes to save his legs against Paris St-Germain before United’s Champions League fixture , to a standing ovation. They will be, if Fulham continue to play this.
Christian Eriksen: This is among the worst performances I have seen from Spurs – nevertheless they could finish and Leicester mightn’t.
In case Harvey Barnes had only a composure in front of goal, he’d be dangerous. Oddly Christian Eriksen looked cultured and polished .
The simple fact Claude Puel keeps Jamie Vardy to the Leicester bench as it’s patently obvious he’s the best striker at the bar will be equally so ludicrous.
Whatever issues exist between your boss and the player need to be resolved. This nonsense is murdering the team.
Were you aware? Christian Eriksen has scored 20 premier-league goals from beyond the box – more than any player since his debut at September 2013.
But when Sterling got his goal, using made Sergio Aguero I needed to really go international.
Sterling is goals he would have missed two seasons ago which is a sign of his development under Pep Guardiola. As for Chelsea – for a high six bar to be defeated 6-0 at a Premier League fixture is eccentric. What on earth is happening at Stamford Bridge?
Were you aware? Raheem Sterling (21) is one of only four players to have been involved – scoring or assisting – in greater than 20 goals in the Premier League this year, alongside Mohamed Salah (24), Sergio Aguero (2-3 ) and Eden Hazard (22).
Forwards – Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), Sergio Aguero (Man City), Anthony Martial (Man Utd)
Roberto Firmino: I really might have chosen some of those’red arrows’ against Bournemouth. Sadio Mane Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino were all magnificent and could have made my team.
I have gone to get Firmino because, without him, the team will not function quite the same. He gets Liverpool tick at Philippe Coutinho and precisely the exact same manner Luis Suarez usedto. I also selected him only to establish (because rumour has it) you never have to score goals to generate my team.
Were you aware? Considering that the beginning of the 2015-16 season, Roberto Firmino is involved with greater premier-league goals than any Liverpool player (70 in total – 4-5 goals, 25 assists).
Sergio Aguero: I would have loved to have been capable of select Burnley’s Chris Wood for his operation against Brighton because it deserved recognition. When you’ve got Sergio Aguero within this form, you are asking me to do the impossible.
Were you aware? In the drubbing of Chelsea, Aguero played with his 11th premier-league hattrick, equalling the record set by Alan Shearer.
Anthony Martial: His goal at Fulham was only brilliant. He moved past Maxime le Marchand and Fulham’s Denis Odoi though they weren’t there.
The France afterward stroked the ball in to the trunk of the net past Sergio Rico. The total resurgence of united has to be murdering Jose Mourinho.
Were you aware? Martial has now been directly engaged 50 premier-league goals (33 goals, 17 assists), a lot more than any Manchester United player since his debut at September 2015.

The Crooks of the issue
I was absolutely thrilled to know that West Ham decided to honour his former captain Billy Bonds by gluing the East Stand. Bonds was one of those first top-class defenders I encountered as a bleary eyed 18-year-old striker looking for his way from the match.
Playing Upton Park has been a powerful experience in days past, especially for a black player. But also for all of your barbed opinions coming from the terraces, Bonds wouldn’t take part in foul mouthed abuse, unlike some players of the generation. I was impressed and I never lost my admiration.
Exactly the same is true of Trevor Brooking, that I’m convinced is supporting this fantastic accolade. He had been overly polite for a gentleman on and off the field. What was it that made them so adapting of strangers? Who can tell? Perhaps it was only down to their sense of decency.
David Sullivan and joint chairmen David Gold have some matters terribly wrong since their arrival at the club. Bond epitomised the heart and soul of the club. It sounds as though they got something right.
