Several of Pep Guardiola's stars make the cut after their nine-goal thriller, with a certain Swansea duo also slotting in

DAVID DE GEA | MANCHESTER UNITED


David de Gea Manchester United

The Spain international kept cool under serious pressure at Anfield, making fives saves to preserve Manchester United's clean sheet as Liverpool peppered his goal with shots throughout.


JOE GOMEZ | LIVERPOOL


Joe Gomez, Liverpool

Another standout performer in Liverpool's 0-0 clash with Manchester United at Anfield, Gomez made three tackles and two interceptions to preserve a clean sheet for Jurgen Klopp's notoriously porous defence.


JOEL MATIP | LIVERPOOL

Another of Jurgen Klopp's charges who can pat himself on the back following months of scrutiny, Matip recovered possession a more-than-respectable 10 times against Manchester United, more than any other Liverpool player.


DAVINSON SANCHEZ | TOTTENHAM


Davinson Sanchez, Tottenham

Signing Davinson Sanchez from Ajax appears to have been a shrewd bit of business by Tottenham, with the Colombian centre-back impressing yet again — this time making twice as many clearances as any of his team-mates vs Bournemouth (6).


MARTIN OLSSON | SWANSEA CITY


Martin Olsson, Swansea

Ever the hard worker, Olsson's contribution of two interceptions and two clearances helped ensure Swansea kept a clean sheet in their 2-0 win over Huddersfield, who themselves have come crashing back to earth after an initial explosive start to life in the Premier League.


RAHEEM STERLING | MANCHESTER CITY


Raheem Sterling Leroy Sane Manchester City

A man in form playing for a team in form, Sterling scored with his only shot on target in Man City's 7-2 humbling of Stoke and bagged two assists for good measure in a stellar performance.


FERNANDINHO | MANCHESTER CITY


Fernandinho Manchester City

Productive as ever, Fernandinho completed an impressive 91% of his passes as part of a fine shift in the middle of the pitch and netted himself a rare goal to cap a performance against Stoke that will undoubtedly make Pep Guardiola proud.


KEVIN DE BRUYNE | MANCHESTER CITY


Pep Guardiola Kevin De Bruyne Manchester City

There's just no shifting this guy from team of the week, is there? The Belgian may not have got on the score sheet, but layed on two assists for his team-mates in potentially the best individual performance of the weekend.


WILFRIED ZAHA | CRYSTAL PALACE


Zaha Chelsea Crystal Palace

He's back, and boy will Crystal Palace fans be happy with his return. Only Mohamed Salah (8) completed more dribbles in the Premier League this weekend, but Zaha's winning goal against Chelsea was just the tonic Eagles fans needed — in more ways than one.


GABRIEL JESUS | MANCHESTER CITY

In yet another clinical display, the Brazilian scored once either side of half-time to seal a fine double with his only two shots against Stoke City.


TAMMY ABRAHAM | SWANSEA CITY


Tammy Abraham

Abraham, despite having the fewest touches of all the players in Swansea's starting XI (22), bagged a double against Huddersfield to give Paul Clement's side a much-needed lift.
