Matchday 23 of the Premier League is over and it proved to be an absolute joy to the viewers. With Watford and Burnley playing the only goalless game of the weekend, it certainly was a goal fest in other fixtures.

We saw the game week starting with Wolves clinching three points at Molineux Stadium in a 4-3 thriller against Leicester City. While the end to the game week saw Tottenham scraping all three points against Fulham right at the brink of the final whistle.

There were certainly some standout performances amongst others, who are worthy of appreciation. So let's take a look at the top three players from matchday 23.

Few honourable mentions which couldn't make into the top three are Mohamed Salah, Marcus Rashford and Jan Bednarek.

So without further ado, let's jump into it.


#3 Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal)

The highlight fixture of the game week took place at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal faced off with Chelsea. The stakes were high as a loss could have taken the Gunners nine points off from the UEFA Champions League spots.

However, at the end of an exhilarating 90 minutes, Arsenal came out as the final victors closing the gap between themselves and the Champions League spots to a much achievable three points.

The stand out performer for the Gunners was their French captain Laurent Koscielny who deservingly won the man of the match award for his heroics on the pitch.

The veteran defender made 13 clearances and 3 crucial interceptions throughout the game. Aerially he dominated the ball and positionally he was spot on. He put his body on the line making vital blocks to ensure his team sees it through.

Defensively on top of his game, Koscielny also contributed at the other end of the pitch. With a hint of luck, the ball came off his shoulder and looped into the goal. Seeing his performance you can't deny that the fortune favours the brave.
