Lukas Skorupski (7 points): just three clean sheets in this round and, out of the trio, the Polish goalkeeper had the best performance as he denied a point-blank Joao Pedro header with a miraculous save to protect his team’s lead.
Erick Pulgar (9 points): it has not been easy this season to beat Alessio Cragno from the penalty spot, but he did it with great aplomb in Sunday’s lunch match.
Cedric Soares (7 points): he finally started in Serie A and had a very solid showing motoring down the right flank and sending in multiple juicy crosses. He was credited for an assist to Gagliardini, but he really was trying to shoot there.
Stefan De Vrij (5 points): a superb display by the Dutch, especially guarding Andrea Petagna, helped Inter stymie SPAL on Sunday, which is not necessarily a feat but is good enough to make the team of the week in this round considering the dearth of bonus points among defenders.
Federico Dimarco (5 points): he made his return after super long absence for a tough abdomen injury, but it looked like he did not miss a bit and scampered up and down that wing.
Robin Gosens (4 points): he decided the clash with a Sampdoria with one of the most difficult goals of the season since he basically put it through from the base line.
Roberto Soriano (6 points): Sinisa Mihajlovic often complained about his team running out of gas in the final minutes, but this time they did damage late thanks to the midfielder, who sneaked in the box and finished cleverly.
Juraj Kucka (6 points): he buried the game winner against that sunk Genoa by beating everybody to the punch and blasting it home after a crazy sequence off a corner kick. He turned out to be a fantastic January reinforcement for Parma.
Roberto Gagliardini (5 points): he made the most of a rare chance to be in the XI with a pretty sweet half volley that allowed Inter to clinch the win late. He is not the flashiest player, but he is rather serviceable.
Moise Kean (8 points): Juventus needed somebody to step up offensively with the starters being rested and he responded with a brilliant brace, with the first goal coming on a well-time cut between defenders to set up a comfortable tap-in and then with a slightly deflected toe-poke.
Andrea Belotti (8 points): he might finally be fully back thanks to his crucial brace against Frosinone, where Torino run into a lot of troubles, but a header on a free kick and one of his customary bicycle kicks turned the tide.
