Today was a good day, all of the players on my "Premier League Spotlight" played well and I won some money with daily fantasy. Even though today had fewer games than most Saturdays, we were still very blessed to see not just great games but many world class individual performances. So, for your treat I picked the three best performances in our new weekly blog, Three Stars of Saturday. Enjoy.
Third Star: Islam Slimani - Leicester City F.C.
Islam had a great match for Leicester as he scored twice and they beat Burnley 3-0. The Third star was between him and Alexis Sánchez but after watching both games I thought Islam's performance was better and without it, Leciester most likely wouldn't have won. With Leicester's poor start to the season, it will be interesting to see if he can keep up this form and help them start playing like last years team.
Second Star: Kevin De Bruyne - Manchester City
Kevin De Bruyne is once again showing why he is the BEST number 10 in the Premier League (Hot Takes only) with another incredible performance this week with a goal, assists, and TWO secondary assists. KDB was so good this match he got the coveted 10/10 match rating, he was amazing and has absolutely stepped up this season and has helped raised the levels of Kelechi Iheanacho and Raheem Sterling. With Sergio Agüero coming back soon I can't see how anyone will stop these guys this season.
First Star: Nacer Chadli - West Bromwich Albion F.C.
Nacer Chadli was on FIRE today as he kicked the shit out of a sorry West Ham defense as he bagged two goals and two assists. The numbers speak for themselves, he was fantastic and also he did this on one of the worst offensive teams in the Premier League. Every Tottenham fan knows what this guy is capable of, and he showed this today, even though his rating wasn't as high as De Bruyne (Chadli was an 8.7 rating) he was so dominant offensively on a team that should never be scoring four goals a game it was easy to give him this weeks first star.
Nice work Nacer, you will always be in my heart.
Well, here it is! We will be doing these every weekend and now that more games are being played on Sunday we will be doing these on Sundays as well. Enjoy the Sunday matches. And of course, if you have a different "Three Stars" than me tweet us at @DST_Tweets.
