Heung-min Son scored four as Tottenham Hotspur thrashed Southampton 5-2 and Dominic Calvert-Lewin grabbed a hat-trick as Everton beat 10 man West Bromwich Albion by the same score.
Clean sheets were hard to come by in the Premier League last weekend, with only Brighton & Hove Albion, Chelsea and Aston Villa keeping one.
Here’s a look at the players who made a real difference in the fantasy football last weekend:
Goalkeeper: Emi Martinez (Aston Villa) – 7pts
Aston Villa’s new signing introduced himself to the fans by saving a penalty and keeping a clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Sheffield United on his debut. Emi Martinez was one of only three goalkeepers to keep a clean sheet on matchday 2.
The curtain is almost down. The business is almost done. With just a single round of games remaining in the Premier League, the relegation battle is finished but the title race remains very much alive. With the final game of the season being the time that this year’s Premier League champions will be identified, there is still plenty to play for at the summit of England’s top flight. With that said, let’s adopt a 4-3-3 formation this week and see which players performed the best for their clubs this past weekend.
Steve Parish is an individual who has accomplished much during his time as owner of Crystal Palace. Having led the consortium which purchased the Eagles from Simon Jordan back in 2010 following some financial difficulties, Palace have arguably gone from strength to strength with the 53-year-old at the helm. Heading the CPFC 2010 consortium alongside the likes of Stephen Browett, Jeremy Hosking and Martin Long, Parish has overseen the club solidify themselves as a top flight presence for the first time in many years, and has helped to nurture fine young talent along the way. Before Parish’s tenure as Chairman, they had never survived for more than a single season in the Premier League, having been relegated at the first time of asking in 1992/93, 1994/95, 1997/98 and 2004/05.
