It was a limited week of Premier League matches in Round 32, with four teams not participating due to the FA Cup semi-finals and their scheduled opponents falling behind by a match as a result.
However, it was a big weekend on both ends of the table, as Arsenal and Tottenham both missed opportunities to advance in the race for the top four, and Manchester United’s victory put the team firmly back in the Champions League first place. .
But who stopped?
Goalkeeper: Fraser Forster
Had Forster not been in the Saints’ goal, the outcome would have been very different against a tired Arsenal side. As it was, the former England international made a series of good saves to keep a clean sheet, and keep the three points on the south coast.
Right-back: Kyle Walker Peters
The England international who recently made Arsenal’s super-promising duo confronted Bukayo Saka and then Gabriel Martinelli, and kept a cool 90 minutes as he helped his side secure a win over Mikel Arteta’s side.
CB: Joel Feltman
It takes a lot to keep Harry Kane cool, but that’s exactly what Brighton defender Joel Feltman has managed to do as the England captain hasn’t even scored a shot in the 90 minutes. An essential part of Graham Potter’s winning plan.
CB: James Tarkowski
When Burnley’s heartthrob took charge off the field, Tarkowski continued to show he was the coach in them. The goal line clearance, in particular, was impressive, and while he will be leaving in the summer as a free agent, he has been a stellar servant for the Lancashire team.
Left-back: Marc Cucurella
Cucurella has been fantastic for Brighton in their narrow win over Spurs, and in fact has been for most of the season since joining the Seagull from Getafe. His performances were such that he could attract attention from above in the summer.
Poison: Yves Bisoma
He was a formidable midfield for the seagulls as he kept Hogberg and Rodrigo Bentancur calm. It’ll be on the move this summer for a reduced rate fee, and Brighton will be hard pressed to replace it.
Name: Christian Eriksen
The fairy tale of Christian Eriksen continues as even without scoring a goal or assisting, he dominated the game for Thomas Frank’s side. Four wins from their last five games have propelled the Bees to the top of the table and they can be sure of their place in the First Division next season.
Poison: Bruno Guimarães
What a signature Lyon man, he’s proven for Newcastle United since joining in January. He hasn’t appeared regularly since he joined, but he was in the row above when he joined. He didn’t sign for his scoring ability, but his two goals proved very useful as the Magpies netted another three points.
RW: Leandro Trossard
Leandro Trossard scored the winning goal his entire team deserved at Tottenham Hotspur, and was another key player for Graham Potter in defense and going forward. He has excelled on both sides, and if he is able to find some much-needed consistency in his game, he could become a key player for the Seagulls next season.
Attacker: Cristiano Ronaldo
Where would United be without Ronaldo? A hat-trick against bottom line Norwich, who beat the Red Devils in big patches, was all that saved Ralph Rangnick from another worrying defeat.
LW: Anthony Elanga
Slim’s Anthony Ilanga holdings left a place in the squad this week thanks to his hard work getting the ball back in Manchester United’s opening game. In defence, he was caught, but the fact that he appears to be a key player for the Red Devils says a lot about his progress and the lack of suitable options in wide areas of the club.
