Naija Super Eagles striker Simy Nwankwo got back to scoring form with a brace, as he leads My11 Round 19 team of the week alongside 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who also scored 2 goals.
Alisson Becker | The Brazilian had a quiet night in Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United, but when called upon the second half, he made top-notch saves, including a close-range save from Paul Pogba from 6 yards away. He made 4 saves in all.
Semi Ajayi | Naija Super Eagles defender, Semi Ajayi picks top stadiums to score his goals, and in West Brom’s 3-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux. He won tackles, interceptions, blocked shots, and a game-high of 8 aerial duels.
John Stones | The rejected stone is now the chief cornerstone, as the England international has now become the star man for Manchester City, and in the Cityzen’s 4-0 thrashing of Eberechi Eze’s Crystal Palace, Stones scored 2 goals.
Alessandro Bastoni | The Italian had a solid game in the biggest game in Italy, keeping Cristiano Ronaldo at bay, in Inter’s 2-0 win over Juventus. He had 6 clearances, more than any other player, and he sent a long pass to Nico Barella to score the second goal.
Youri Tielemans | The Belgian was in fine form in Leicester City’s 2-0 win over Southampton. He controlled the midfield, playing in front of Wilfred Ndidi, and he gave 3 key passes, which 2 were assists to the goals in the game.
Kevin de Bruyne | Another Belgian with a brilliant performance at the weekend. He was solid in Manchester City’s win and he had an “out of the world” cross to assist the first goal for John Stones, his 100th EPL assist.
Luis Alberto | The Spaniard was in fine form as Lazio defeated Roma in the Rome derby. He was fouled the most in the game, most shots, most key passes, and he got 2 goals to his name.
Lorenzo Insigne | The Napoli captain had a great game as Victor Osimhen’s team thrashed Fiorentina 6-0 in Naples. Almost everything he did was a game-high, from his 95% pass accuracy to his 4 shots. He got 2 goals to his name, and also provided an assist in the match.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang | The Gabonese had his best performance of the season in Arsenal’s 3-0 thumping of Newcastle. The Gunners captain scored 2 goals from his 5 shots and also hit the woodwork once.
Simy Nwankwo | The Nigeria Super Eagles striker returned to form in Crotone’s 4-1 win over Benevento. He won the most aerial duels, hit the most shots in the clash, and he got to goals for himself.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic | A definition of old wine, the Swede came back into the starting lineup with a bang. The 39-year-old scored the 2 goals in Milan’s away win over Cagliari, winning and scoring a penalty, before beating the goalkeeper again with his left foot.
Antonio Conte | The Italian gaffer outclassed his compatriot Andrea Pirlo in the derby D’italia, and that win showed his team are ready to win the Scudetto. His set up against Juventus made life difficult for Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata to thrive, and Inter got all 3 points after 90 minutes.
