The Brazilian scored twice in Tottenham's 3-0 win over Manchester United, while Fulham's leading man netted two headers against Burnley

Tottenham forward Lucas Moura deepened Manchester United's woes with a brace as Mauricio Pochettino's side blew Jose Mourinho's downtrodden men 3-0 on Monday evening. 

The Brazilian, who scored his first Premier League goal against Fulham a few days prior to the trip to Old Trafford, swept home Christian Eriksen's low cross before surging past Victor Lindelof to ensure Spurs' perfect start to the season continued.

His display also earned him a score of 93/100 on the Goal Pressure Index, presented by Sure and powered by Opta.

Lucas' exploits predictably became the talk of the football world, but Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic's performance against Burnley on Sunday was just as impressive.

The powerful Serbian produced a proper old-fashioned centre-forward display against the Clarets, scoring twice to help the Cottagers to their first victory since gaining promotion back to the top-flight and earning him a Pressure Index score of 95/100 in the process.

Chelsea's Jorginho also produced a positively metronomic display this weekend, as Maurizio Sarri's side got the better of an overly defensive Newcastle United at St James' Park.

The former Napoli star completed 158 passes on Sunday - 25 more than Newcastle's whole team combined - and his controlling display saw him earn 91/100.
