A busy week for Serie A teams is in the book, here are the top performers from the last two rounds.
Andrea Consigli: in a staggering turn of events, Sassuolo was the only team to keep a clean sheet in both games, against Verona and Fiorentina. The Neroverdi found their groove in the home stretch and the goalie did not have to intervene too much in either match, but still brought home 13 total points.
Mauricio Lemos: the Uruguayan centre-back had an horrific impact to Serie A, but found his footing lately and decided the key game against Verona with a tap in. He was the top defender last week with 13 points. His teammate Francesco Acerbi collected ten points for not conceding a single goal.
Kalidou Koulibaly: the Napoli defence had an imperfect midweek game against Udinese, but made up on Sunday with a gigantic performance against Juventus and the centre-back buried an exceptional and uber-important header to win the game late. He racked up nine points.
Joao Cancelo: the Portuguese right-back continues to be productive and only Mariusz Stepinski ruined what could have been a perfect week for the Inter back-line. He found the target rather luckily against Crotone, as his sharp free kick, which was clearly a cross, was not deflected by anybody but still went past the goalkeeper. He got eight points.
Jordan Veretout: a bitter week for Fiorentina, defeated in both games against Lazio and Sassuolo, but the Frenchman can hold his head high thanks to his spectacular hat-trick against the Biancocelesti, where ha bagged a free kick, a penalty and then scored one on an open-play thanks to sick feint and a wicked finish. He was the top midfielder with 13 points.
Remo Freuler: he is one of the most unheralded contributors of the Goddess, but he certainly made his presence felt in a big way this week, as he put his name in the scoresheets in both fixtures. He found two easy scores thanks to perfect timing on the trail. He amassed 12 points as he also picked up an assist in the Benevento game.
Ivan Perisic: the Croatian winger confirmed his good form by hitting the target twice this week, first with a long-range conclusion against Cagliari and then at the end of a marvellous one-two-three action by Inter for what turned out to be the game-winner against Chievo.
Luis Alberto: due to a suspension, the Spaniard played just one game this week, but his showing was fabulous enough to earn him a spot in the team of the week. He scored a brace, one goal coming on a stunning free kick and the other on a clinical finish. He also provided a sweet assist, totalling nine 9 points this week.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic: the Sergeant took over in the Sampdoria tilt, with a pair of dazzling plays, a header to break the deadlock and a perfect square ball to set up Ciro Immobile. He racked up eight points.
Mauro Icardi: it was not the best week for strikers, as just three of them scored twice. In the least shocking piece of news of the week, two of them were the Serie A’s leading scorers, Icardi and Ciro Immobile. The Argentinian centre-forward netted two easy ones and also fed Ivan Brozovic in the midweek game, so he garnered ten points.
Ciro Immobile: he joined the party late against Sampdoria, but he still put a pair past Emiliano Viviano. Two effortless scores for the Lazio attacker, who continues to benefit from having a slew of crafty assistmen at his disposal.
