The Premier League entered into game week 10 this past weekend with all 20 teams in action from Friday to Monday.
On Friday, late goals by Callum Wilson and Joelington saw Newcastle United take care of Crystal Palace 2-0 away from home.
On Saturday afternoon, Pascal Gross converted a controversial injury-time penalty to cancel out Diogo Jota’s opener as Brighton and Hove Albion held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at the Anex.
At the Etihad Stadium, Riyad Mahrez netted a hat trick as Man City thumped Burnley 5-0. Benjamin Mendy and Ferran Torres scored the other goals for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Leeds United upset the odds as they beat Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park, thanks to a Raphinha 79th minute strike.
In Saturday’s late kick-off, Conor Gallagher scored the only goal of the game to ensure West Bromwich Albion registered their maiden victory of the season at the hands of rock-bottom Sheffield United.
On Sunday, Edison Cavani came off the bench to score twice and assist Bruno Fernandes’s goal as Man United came from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2 at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
The headline contest of the weekend saw Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur draw 0-0 at Stamford Bridge.
The last game on Sunday saw Arsenal lose once again as they were defeated 2-1 at home to Wolves. Pedro Neto and Daniele Podence struck either side of Gabriel’s leveler to subject the Gunners to a 5th loss of the campaign in just 10 games.
On Monday, Ademola Lookman and Ivan Cavalieri’s first half goals proved too much for Leicester City as Fulham stunned them 2-1 at the King Power Stadium. Harvey Barnes scored Leicester City’s consolation goal four minutes from time.
The final match-day game saw West Ham United hold on to overcome Aston Villa 2-1 at the London Stadium. Angelo Agbonna and Jarrod Bowen struck either side of Jack Grealish’s equalizer to seal victor for the Hammers.
Here are the XI players who stood out on match-day 10.
GK: Edouard Mendy (Chelsea)
Mendy has been outstanding since his debut and continues to impress. Against Spurs on Sunday, he was equal to the task whenever called upon and exhibited great reflexes to deal with Serge Aurier’s venomous first half strike.
RB: Joel Veltman (Brighton and Hove Albion)
Called in to replace the outstanding Tareq Lamptey but Veltman executed his role as he was a constant threat down the right against Liverpool and was as equally impressive when called upon to defend.
CB: Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur)
Forget the square ball attempted for Sissoko, Dier was superb against a Chelsea attack that has consistently scored this season. The Englishman ensured his side kept a clean-sheet as the two sides drew 0-0.
CB: Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham United)
Not always given the credit he deserves, the Italian was strong at the back in the win over Aston Villa on Monday, also opening the scoring in the game.
LB: Benjamin Mendy (Man City)
Mendy scored one of Citu’s five goals in the thumping of Burnley and was also at his best defensively against the physically imposing opponents.
MF: Conor Gallagher (West Bromwich Albion)
Gallagher scored West Bromwich Albion’s goal as they registered their first victory of the season in the 1-0 win over Sheffield United.
MF: Kevin De Bryne (Man City)
When the Belgian plays, the entire Man City team plays too. On Saturday, he was on-song again, assisting twice and could have scored one for himself, only to be denied by the frame of the goal-late in the contest.
MF: Bruno Fernandes (Man United)
Without a doubt United’s most important player. Fernandes scored once and was involved in the other two goals as they came from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2.
FW: Riyad Mahrez (Man City)
Scored a hat trick as Man City thumped Burnley 5-0 on Saturday.
FW: Joelington (Newcastle United)
Assisted Wilson’s opener before scoring the second in Newcastle United’s 2-0 win over Palace on Friday.
FW: Edison Cavani (Man United)
Came of the bench at the start of the second half with United trailing 2-0. The Uruguayan then scored twice nd assisted Fernandes’ goal as United turned the game on it’s head and register a sweet victory at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
