Fraser Forster is in goal for me this week. He didn’t have loads to do against Palace, but he dealt with everything that came his way. It was a good performance from him and the defence, that was a good clean sheet for Spurs. With Lloris out until the end of the season, this is Fraser’s chance to show what he’s capable of.
I loved that West Ham performance against United, and Thilo Kehrer was right at the heart of it. I like this lad; he impressed me a lot. He had to keep Rashford quiet and did a great job all game. He’s a great athlete, and I like his versatility, he can play anywhere across the defence.
He’s not played a lot since he signed in January, but I like the look of Jakub Kiwior. That was another good display from him at St James’, he brought a lot of composure and authority to the Arsenal defence. Arsenal have really struggled since Saliba got injured but this lad looks like he’s settled in now and is capable of starting in the side.
I’ve always rated Craig Dawson, he was outstanding against Villa. He’s been a great signing for the club, he’s got so much experience at this level. Craig’s a proper defender and he was blocking everything that came his way against Villa. That was a huge win for Wolves and keeps them in the league for another season.
Speaking of huge wins, they don’t get bigger than Everton’s at Brighton! Young Nathan Patterson was terrific. It can’t be the easy for the lad to step into a club legend like Seamus Coleman’s shoes, but his attitude and desire all game were superb. Mitoma is such a tricky winger, but Patterson got the better of him. Sean Dyche must have been delighted by the lad’s performance.
What a signing Willian has been for Fulham. I thought we’d seen the last of him in this country, but to return at his age and still play as well as he’s done, every credit to him. He got two against Leicester and whilst he didn’t know much about the first one, the second was vintage Willian. He’s always been fantastic at shifting the ball out his feet quickly and firing a shot away, a lovely goal.
Declan Rice is a must in my side, yet again! I thought he was the best player on the park against United and controlled the game. His leadership and energy in the middle of the park are so crucial to West Ham and he was intercepting passes all game long. I always hear debates about some of these rumoured transfer fees for Declan, he’s worth every penny.
Abdoulaye Doucoure was brilliant for Everton. It was a great performance by the whole side, but this lad’s energy was unbelievable! He was constantly making runs from midfield, and he could even have scored a hat-trick. The second goal was a brilliant team move and a classy finish from him. A top-class performance.
What a classy player Morgan Gibbs-White is. He’s still young so he will make some mistakes and try things he shouldn’t, but some of his touches and passes are top class. His penalty was so composed and his assist for Forest’s fourth against Southampton was sublime. I think regardless of what happens to Forest, Morgan will be playing in the Premier League next season.
Next up my star man, it can only be Dwight McNeil, what an unbelievable performance. Dwight has been playing well in the last few weeks for Everton but his performance at Brighton was as good as anything I’ve seen from any player in months. He didn’t stop running all game, and scored two, assisted one and played a big part in Steele’s own goal. He took his two goals so well as well, showing so much composure and quality. Outstanding.
Taiwo Awoniyi was such a handful for Southampton and took his two goals very well. I like this lad; he causes defences all sorts of problems. He probably should score more goals; we saw what a good finisher he is. When you’re down at that end of the table, you need a striker you know can get you goals, he’s definitely that player for Forest.
