The two remaining games which pit Tottenham Hotspur away to Burnley and Brighton and Hove Albion at home to West Bromwich Albion will be played on Monday.
Here are the XI players who stood out on match-day Six according to Shaban Lubega.
GK: Edouard Mendy (Chelsea)
He made several excellent saves to ensure his side-Chelsea keep a rare clean sheet away to Man United on Saturday.
RB: Joao Cancelo (Man City)
Arguably City’s brightest spark in the draw at West Ham United. Cancelo assisted Foden’s equalizer early in the second half.
CB: Victor Lindelof (Man United)
A commanding display but the Man United Center back as his side drew 0-0 with Chelsea.
CB: Wesley Forfana (Leicester City)
Just 19 years old but the French teenager produced a magnificent display as Leicester shut out Arsenal to win 1-0 on Sunday night.
LB: Aurther Masuaku (West Ham United)
His talent is unquestionable but Masuaku usually lets his guard down. However, he was brilliant all afternoon in the draw with City on Saturday.
MF: Declan Rice (West Ham United)
Rice is slowly turning into one of the best holding midfielders in the league and he marshalled the center of the park well in the draw with City.
MF: Helder Costa (Leeds United)
Struggled at the start but later grew ito it, assisting one of Bamford’s three goals against Aston Villa.
MF: Diogo Jota (Liverpool)
Scored what proved out to be the winner as Liverpool scrapped to a 2-1 victory at home to Sheffield United.
MF: Wilfred Zaha (Crystal Palace)
Scored the winner and assisted the opener as Palace beat Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage.
ST: Danny Ings (Southampton)
On a weekend which strikers struggled, Ings assisted both of the Saints’ goals in the victory against Everton.
ST: Patrick Bamford (Leeds United)
Bamford’s hattrick ensured the 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Friday night.
