Manchester United and Crystal Palace following their separate victories at home – saw a combined six players featured [three each], with the rest selected from – Nottingham Forest, Southampton, Newcastle, West Ham and Liverpool.
An unusual display from Bruno Fernandes at Trafford this season against Tottenham Hotspur, commented Fred’s lead with the crucial second – he emerged as the star player of the week – shares such honour with on-loan teammate Dean Henderson.
