It was another sad and disappointing day for me due to Tottenham's defeat to Chelsea. All I want to do is cry and never speak of this week ever again. However, I love you guys way too much not to give you the Three Stars of Saturday.
Third Star: Fernando Llorente - Swansea City A.F.C.
Fernando Llorente was the hero for Swansea City as his heroic 24 Minute display got Bob Bradley a MUCH needed a victory against Swansea's relegation rival, Crystal Palace. Llorente has struggled since his move to the Premier League, but this is EXACTLY what any striker needs to get back on the horse (hey Vincent Janssen, looking at you). Llorente ended the match with an 8.75 Match Rating which was just .05 under getting him Man of the Match.

Second Star: Nicolás Otamendi - Manchester City F.C.
When Manchester City win it's usually due to their amazing midfielder or Sergio Agüero's prowess. Not today, even though Sergio Agüero got a brace, Nicolás Otamendi is finally showing how great he is with a Man of the Match Display against Burnley. Otamendi ended the match with an 8.92 Match Rating and even got an assist which is very rare for a center back. I usually am very critical of Otamendi, but today he impressed the entire league.
First Star: Álvaro Negredo - Middlesbrough F.C.
Álvaro Negredo and Middleborough had an amazing weekend as they drew with Premier League Champions Leicester City 2-2. Negredo had two goals as he is slowly showing why Middleborough tried so hard to sign the Spaniard. At the start of the season I said Middleborough would be the surprise team due to Negredo's goals and he is slowly showing why his goals can keep this club in the Premier League for years to come.
