Hey, guys, this is a new weekly blog we are doing here at DST where we take all of the Saturday Premier League games and pick the three stars from all the games. To find which players will make the cut to be on the list we will be looking at match rating, in match contributions and of course, their clubs result. So lets get the debate going and start with our third star......
3. Roberto Firmino - Liverpool
Despite having one the worst haircuts in the Premier League; Roberto Firmino was on fire today as he scored two goals in Liverpool's 4-1 win over last years champions Leicester City and with a rating of 9.16, it was a very easy decision to put him in my three stars of the Saturday fixtures. On many other weekends, he would easily be number one, but unlucky for him, other players went even more above and beyond than him.
2. Kevin De Bruyne - Manchester City
Listen, I know he didn't have two goals like Firmino but to be able to score a goal and set up Kelechi Iheanacho's goal in a Manchester Derby is spectacular. KDB put the team on his back in the derby that is between the two title favorites without their top goal scorer; Sergio Agüero. I feel like saying he carried his team on saturday is an understatement, he was everything to this City squad and deserved his 8.9 match rating and man of the match.
1. Son Heung-min - Tottenham Hotspur
With all of the scrutiny Son gets for not delivering for Tottenham for him to be the one to step up today in what seemed like a must win against a tough Stoke team was fantastic. To get two goals and one assist with all that pressure of trying to fill the void left by a fatigued Lamela showed exactly how badly he wants to succeed at this club. Son turned down a chance to play for his nation this International Break to train more with Tottenham, and it paid off as he got man of the match and a 9.21 rating so for these reasons, he had to be this week number one star.
Obviously, a lot of players had great weeks, and some people will have a different list than me and IF you are one of those people tweet us your three at @DST_Tweets. Stay tuned guys; we have a lot of great things coming this week for the Champions League.
