Manchester United started the new year with a win to end their winless-run in the English Premier League, Chelsea continued their unbeaten recored of post Mourinho era.
Arsenal extended their lead on the table with a narrow win as Leicester City failed to score for a third consecutive English Premier League game while Manchester City grabbed a deserved win against the Hornets .
Here is my selection of the best and most outstanding performers from this week’s action. At the same time, you can ‘Vote’ for the ‘Player of the Week’ here.
1. Goalkeeper – Artur Boruc (Bournemouth)
Boruc has now kept two clean sheets in his past three league games, he was a hero against Leicester. The Polish international not only denied Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez from scoring, but the highlight of the game was the controversial penalty he saved, pushing the ball around the post and provided justice to a referee’s wrong decision. He was their saviour, salvaging a point for them and also the man of the match.
