Oh, what a matchday it was, we had so many goals, a few upsets, and of course, a few slip-ups along the way, but we aren't here to talk about that. We are here to discuss the three best individual performances so even if you were too hungover to watch, you are all caught up!
Third Star: Dele Alli - Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
It's been back to back matchdays of Tottenham's Dele Alli being on this list for obvious reasons. The 20-year-old started his 2017 campaign with a world class performance. Dele Alli was influential in most of Tottenham's attacks as he was making runs that were making space for Harry Kane to get his two goals today. Dele ended the match with another two goals and an 8.43 match rating. He was on fire today; I think it is fair to say if Mauricio Pochettino kept him on, he would have got his hat-trick.

Second Star: Andre Gray - Burnley F.C.
It's been a tough year for Burnley's Andre Gray. He was made into a bad guy over some homophobic tweets he made from years back. He is now back from his leave and was on fire as Burnley got a huge win against Sunderland 4-1. Gray had a hat trick on seven shots, had a 67% passing percentage and used his pace so well to open up a broken Sunderland back line. He played a true strikers game, he didn't have many passes, only crossed once but in front of goal he was an absolute beast. He ended the match with a 9.36 match rating and Man of The Match.

First Star: Harry Kane - Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
It was very fitting that the first player to score in 2017 was last year's golden boot winner, Harry Kane. The first half we saw Tottenham put three goals behind Watford (Kane had two of them) and it was one of the most dominant displays by any club this season. He didn't just score, though; he had a 77 pass percentage with three chances created, three crosses and one assist. He ended the match with an outstanding 9.83 match rating and Barclays Man of The Match. What a way to mark his 100th Premier League appearance.
Fun Fact: Harry Kane has 59 goals in 100 Premier League games. That is the same as Thierry Henry had at Arsenal
