Midfield – Newcastle halted Liverpool’s march with a gritty 2-0 win with both goals coming from Georginio Wijnaldum. Dutch International has scored few and far in between but his goals gave been massive for the Magpies so far this season. Riyad Mahrez was at his sublime best yet again as the Algerian winger scored a sensational hattrick against Swansea. Although, it stopped Jamie Vardy’s run of scoring in consecutive games but Leicester are well on the way of Premier League glory.
Attack – Often has been the case when Olivier Giroud goes missing but lately his goals have propelled Arsenal’s fight for the Premier League glory. Odion Ighalo is another such player, whose goals have been key for Watford so far this season.
