Goalkeeper: Jonas Lossl

Lossl made four saves to deny Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha as Huddersfield Town beat Crystal Palace 3-0.

Left Centre-Back: Ben Davies

Ben Davies got onto the scoresheet and was a constant threat in attack. Plus, he also managed to keep a clean sheet in Tottenham's win.

Centre-Back: Michael Keane

Keane managed to put on a calm, composing performance as Wayne Rooney's header proved to be the difference.

Right Centre-Back: Mathias Jorgensen

The Dane made six clearances and three interceptions in a strong defensive performance.

Right Wing-Back: Kyle Walker

Walker was a terrific attacking outlet in Man City's win against Brighton at the AMEX stadium.

Left Wing-Back: Stephen Ward

Ward scored with a thumping volley as Burnley shocked defending champions Chelsea 3-2.

Centre MIdfielder: Nemanja Matic

Matic led his team in touches (89), passes (69) and recoveries (9) in their 4-0 win over West Ham.

Centre Midfielder: David Silva

The always-impressive Silva made five key passes and bagged an assist as Man City eventually broke down a stubborn Brighton side in a 2-0 win.

Striker: Romelu Lukaku

The best debutant of them all this weekend, as the Belgian scored two impressive goals to kickstart his Old Trafford career and send Man Utd to the top of the Premier League table.

Striker: Jamie Vardy

Looking sharp against Arsenal, Vardy scored a brace against the Gunners – a side he has scored more goals against than any other.

Striker: Steve Mounie

Mounie scored 2 and could have scored more in a performance which must have given Palace defenders nightmares.

Manager: Arsene Wenger

As Arsenal were trailing 3-2 on Friday night, Arsene Wenger switched to a back four and made a double change as a last throw of the dice and it worked. Both of his substitutes, Giroud and Ramsey scored to complete the comeback as the match ended 4-3 in Arsenal's favour.
