If you are looking for moments of brilliance, drama, quality, intensity, you name it all, do not look further than the premier league. This past weekend have been superb again, there were twists and turns all over the grounds across England. But which one tops the list for you in the following?
1. Fernando Llorente
The Spanish striker produced moments of brilliance when he bagged a brace to claim an unlikely victory against high flying Liverpool. The victory took to two points clear of the drop.
2. Alexis Sanchez
Like all the other times, the Chilean attacker was at it again, saving Aersene Wenger’s blushes with a sublime finish on the spot. He has the nerves of steel, he is the man for the big occasion, his confidence and persistence is the one that won them the match and got Arsenal back in the title race.
3. Seamus Coleman
For a defender to finish like that at a crucial moment in the game, takes some real nerves. Everton’s defender Seamus Coleman did it, he sent Crystal Palace into the drop zone with sublime striker’s finish and took all three points.
4. Wayne Rooney
There were talks of him leaving the club and having no impact in the game anymore. But his wonder strike that earned Manchester United a point against rock solid Stoke City changed all the thoughts. He still has it, not only did the strike earn a point for them, but it took the Red Devils talisman to 250 goals for the club. This made him the highest ever Manchester United goal scorer in history.
5. Dele Alli
He is the man onform and every goal that Tottenham Hotspur score these days, he is always involved if he is not the one scoring it. Again in the weekend against resurgent Manchester City, he brought Spurs back into the game after going two nil down. His goal triggered a comeback for Spurs as they earned a not so well deserved point.
