We had a wild weekend of English Football as we had a cup final, hat tricks, shock wins and of course, the weekly disappointing draw for West Ham fans. We are here to give you the three best performances from this weekend!
Note: Just from the Premier League matches so don't come here looking for Zlatan Ibrahimović okay United Fans?
Third Star: Idrissa Gueye - Everton F.C.
When you look around the league this week some player scored more goals than Idrissa Gueye, and maybe had better match ratings but he was arguably the most crucial player for his team this weekend. The Everton midfielder had two dribbles, five successful tackles (most on the pitch), a goal and had 9.4% of Everton's possession. Even though these stats might not stand out like Vardy's or others but if you watched the Everton match there is no way they win without the deep lying passes and movement of Gueye. I know some people will call me a "Vardy Hater" for picking him over the strker but I dare you to rewatch the game. He deserved his 9.3 match rating and of course, the Man of the Match.
Second Star: Cesc Fàbregas - Chelsea F.C.
With how well Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are doing some Chelsea players have been forgotten and criticized this season for flying too "under the radar". One of those players is Cesc Fàbregas. Cesc has been rumored to be on his way out of Chelsea as many pundits believe he is way past his best and isn't a top class midfielder anymore. Whether or not you think this is true, there is nothing to give the Spaniard but praise this week as he pretty much dragged Chelsea across the finish line against a tough Swansea team. With five chances created, one assist, a goal, an 85 passing percentage and even two interceptions, Cesc was world class in this game which is why he fully deserved his match rating of 9.28 and the Man of the Match.
First Star: Harry Kane - Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
Tottenham's Harry Kane once again showed the world he is an elite striker as he notched a first-half hat trick and an assist in Tottenham's 4-0 win over Stoke. Harry Kane missed two months this season with an injury and after this weekend he is tied at the top of the Premier League in goals scored with 17. This weekend was the exact reason why I believe Harry Kane is world class, he created two chances (where he got one assist), two successful take on, six shots (he was unlucky to only score three honestly), an interception and a 92% passing percentage. After a tough week in the Europa League, Tottenham needed this win, and when Tottenham need a win, Harry Kane usually delivers. He ended the match with PERFECT 10/10 match rating. What a fucking player.
