Goalkeeper: Jordan Pickford (Sunderland)

Made two brilliant saves as the relegated team reshaped the battle against the drop with a surprise win against Hull City.

Right-back: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal)

Another influential performance from the makeshift wing-back as he crossed for the second goal against Manchester United.

Centre-back: Alfie Mawson (Swansea City)

A giant at the back as he kept the division’s top scorer Romelu Lukaku quiet as Swansea City beat Everton to leapfrog Hull.

Centre-back: Maya Yoshida (Southampton)

Helped Southampton keep a second clean sheet at Anfield in 2017 as he restricted Liverpool to few chances in a hugely impressive display.

Left-back: Aaron Cresswell (West Ham United)

Tottenham Hotspur’s free-scoring side were stifled in a London derby on Friday. The excellent Cresswell was a reason why.

Right midfield: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City)

Looked back to his best as he scored the opening goal in the rout of Watford to continue Leicester City’s revival under Craig Shakespeare.

Centre midfield: Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City)

Scored a goal, recorded two assists, hit the bar and had a huge impact in City’s 5-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace.

Centre midfield: David Silva (Manchester City)

Another display of class included his 50th City goal. No wonder he got a standing ovation on Saturday.

Left midfield: Manuel Lanzini (West Ham)

The derby specialist scored one of his most significant goals to dent Tottenham’s title push and West Ham a win.

Striker: Sam Vokes (Burnley)

A double included a late equaliser and took Burnley to 40 points and, almost certainly, safety to cap a fine season for the promoted team.

Striker: Danny Welbeck (Arsenal)

Returned to torment his former club again by scoring for Arsenal against Manchester United for a third time. It was a thumping header.
