Leicester City took all three points from the Etihad to stay 4 points clear at the top of the table while Tottenham Hotspur moved into the second place after this week’s Premier League action. There were a number of individual performances all over the country in the top flight of English football.
Let’s take a look at who made it into our team of the week for the 25th round of Premier League fixtures:
David de Gea (Manchester United):
Though Petr Cech was sensational in Arsenal’s victory over the Cherries, David de Gea was the sole reason for United stealing a point at Stamford Bridge. De Gea stood tall and made a number of saves to keep the home side at bay in the dying moments of the game.
Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur):
The energetic wing back was full of running on the night and scored the only goal of the game. He carved the Watford defense into pieces and put in a superb performance at the back as well.
Robert Huth (Leicester City):
Staying strong at the back all game, Robert Huth got himself a brace at the other end as he headed two past Joe Hart in Leicester’s 3-1 victory over Manchester City this weekend.
Maya Yoshida (Southampton):
Picked up the only goal in the victory over the Hammers and also stood strong after his team were reduced to 10 men for the whole of the second half. A strong performance from the Japanese defender.
Christian Fuchs (Leicester City):
Fuchs is fast emerging as one of the best full backs in the Premier League. The Australian international provided a hard working display keeping the likes of Sterling and Silva quite at the Etihad in the 3-1 victory for the Foxes.
Tom Cleverly (Everton):
Provided a great balance between attack and defense in Everton’s victory over Stoke. The ex-Manchester United player was all over the field helping out his team mates from tough situations to hold on to all three points.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (Swansea City):
The best player for the Irish outfit on the night, Sigurdsson created plenty of chances in his attacking midfield role before putting a curling free kick past the Crystal Palace wall giving his team an important point.
Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City):
The flying Algerian was at it once again as he often carved open the Manchester City defense before getting on the score sheet with a brilliant bit of skill and a well taken right foot shot past Joe Hart. He has been an important part of the Foxes’ title challenge this season.
Mesut Ozil (Arsenal):
The Assist King could not really provide an assist on the night but was a menacing nuisance for the Cherries on the night. He opened the scoring with a controlled finish and was busy all night in the final third.
Roberto Firmino (Liverpool):
The January signing for Liverpool seems to have got used to the English game as he picked up a goal and assisted Lallana before his team lost the 2 goal lead at Anfield.
Diego Costa (Chelsea):
The controversial striker showed his class against Manchester Untied in the second half. As Chelsea started to turn the screws on, Costa looked most likely to give them a goal and scored in stoppage time to keep Guus Hiddink’s unbeaten record intact.
