    Which of the nation's stars were on top of their game, and whose performance left a lot to be desired?
  2. Too Good: Victor Moses

    The Chelsea loanee was in good form for Spartak Moscow, who picked up their ninth win of the season with a 2-0 success over Rotor Volgograd.

    Playing at left wing-back, the Nigerian offered an injection of pace, completed 100 percent of his dribbles and won the majority of tussles he contested during the game.

    Victory for Spartak took them joint top along with Zenit Saint Petersburg and CSKA Moscow.

    Too Bad: Eberechi Eze

    Eze wasn’t at the races as Crystal Palace fell to a 2-0 defeat at home against Newcastle United on Friday.

    The playmaker created little at Selhurst Park, often gave up possession in the disappointing loss and lost the majority of his duels all game.

    Palace dropped to 15th in the table after the completion of gameweek 10.

    Too Good: Zaidu Sanusi

    FC Porto picked up a 1-0 win over Santa Clara and Sanusi helped the Portuguese giants to their fourth straight win in all competitions.

    The left-back was largely solid in defence and barely gave anything away to the hosts in a professional showing in Ponta Delgada.

    Porto remain six points behind Sporting after Saturday’s victory.

  5. Too Bad: Simy

    Too Bad: Simy

    The Crotone frontman fired blanks in yet another defeat in Serie A since their return.

    Simy couldn’t score his fourth top flight goal for the Pythagoreans, who lost 1-0 at Bologna after another toothless display.

    Following their seventh reverse of the season, Crotone stay rooted at the bottom.

  6. Too Good: Mikel John Obi

    Too Good: Mikel John Obi

    Mikel was in fine form for Stoke City despite a goalless encounter with second-bottom Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough Stadium.

    The former Nigeria skipper’s tidiness in possession was admirable, and he won every contested duel before his withdrawal with 17 minutes to play.

    Despite Stoke’s disappointing stalemate, which saw them drop to eighth in the table, Mikel’s showing was pleasing to see.
