Romelu Lukaku came up big on what was a huge afternoon for Manchester United.

The Belgium international sunk rivals Chelsea in what was his finest performance in a United shirt to date, scoring and assisting in a Premier League game for the first time since September last year.

His standout showing earned him a whopping 90/100 on the Goal Pressure Index, presented by Sure and powered by Opta data, to lead the Pressure Index Team of the Week.

And he was joined by one of the outstanding players of the season so far, as Liverpool’s Mo Salah also scored one and made one assist in his side’s 4-1 demolition of West Ham.

Salah has been now directly involved in 31 Premier League goals this season (23 goals, 8 assists), more than any other player.

His Liverpool colleagues Emre Can and James Milner back up Salah from midfield, while Huddersfield’s Rajiv van La Parra, who opened the scoring in a vital 2-1 win at West Brom, makes up the front-three.

Elsewhere, Tottenham’s Davinson Sanchez leads the defence after completing 94% of his passes and made eight clearances in Spurs' London derby victory over Crystal Palace.
