A superb display against a Crystal Palace midfield full of experienced and talented players shows he can mix it with the best. He was just as effective defensively as partner Eric Dier and got forward well too. 11 11 Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris (Tottenham) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – West Ham’s Adrian and Norwich’s John Ruddy were also contenders but Spurs’ French star produced several top saves, while also confidently repelling numerous Crystal Palace set-pieces. His catches at corners were key, allowing the Lilywhites to relieve the pressure as their opponents tried in vain for an equaliser late on at White Hart Lane. 11 11 Left-back: Alberto Moreno (Liverpool) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – Having seen Joe Gomez selected ahead of him at left-back, so far this season. Moreno put in a promising display as a wing-back in Brendan Rodgers’ 3-4-1-2 formation. He got the assist for Danny Ings’ goal and looked dangerous bombing down the flank. 11 Striker: Anthony Martial (Manchester United) – The £36million man is proving his worth at Old Trafford already with three goals in three games. Martial’s match-winning brace against Southampton was superb and showed he has a poacher’s instinct to go with his pace and power. Attacking midfield: Juan Mata (Manchester United) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – As well as scoring one goal and being heavily involved in another of the Red Devils’ three strikes against Southampton, the spritely Spaniard was accurate with 95.8 per cent of his passes. 11 11 Attacking midfield: Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – The South Korean is endearing himself to Spurs fans pretty quickly at White Hart Lane. His strike against Crystal Palace was a match-winner but the attacking midfielder was a whirling dervish on and off the ball, popping up across the pitch putting in tackles and dashing towards goal. Central midfield: Dan Gosling (Bournemouth) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – A lung-busting display from the ex-Everton and Newcastle man helped the Cherries get their first home win in the Premier League.

Just when you think you can predict how the Premier League is going to pan out, West Ham go and throw a spanner in the works.Manchester City looked like romping to the title but were humbled at home by the Hammers, while Chelsea ended their poor form with a win over Arsenal.But who were the outstanding players in the Premier League at the weekend? talkSPORT takes a look. 11 11 Attacking midfield: Odion Ighalo (Watford) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – If the Hornets avoid relegation this season, the Nigerian’s goals will be key for them.
