Premier League 2018-19: Top 5 Players of Gameweek 29
The Gameweek 29 of the English Premier League ended yesterday, and we have new table toppers in Manchester City, following Liverpool's goalless draw at Goodison Park last night.
The Gameweek had two very important fixtures which were definitely going to have a big impact on how the top 4 would shape up after the results. One being the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham, and the second being the previously mentioned Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool.
Champions Manchester City, who have been plagued by injuries, just edged past Bournemouth. However, the match added more misery to the Citizens as Kevin de Bruyne also picked up an injury at the Vitality Stadium.
Meanwhile, City's local rivals Manchester United raised their game up big time, beating Southampton 3-2 in a mouthwatering clash at Old Trafford.
Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea, who are aiming for the top 4 this season, scraped out a well worked 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage against Fulham. Though Fulham created some problems in the dying moments of the game, it was Chelsea's game to lose as the Blues dominated the proceedings for the majority of the match.
There were particularly 5 players who were at their best this past weekend and were key to their team's victories. So, let's look at the top 5 players from the Gameweek 29 of the English Premier League!
#5 Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Crystal Palace)
The 21-year-old English full-back played a magnificent game in Crystal Palace's 3-1 away victory over Burnley on Saturday evening.
Though one could point out 3-4 other Palace players could also be included in this list, what made Wan-Bissaka made the cut was his ability to control the whole right wing throughout the game. He ran past defenders with ease on the right flank and provided an inch-perfect cross for Michy Batshuayi's goal.
Wan-Bissaka has emerged as a transfer target for top English clubs, especially Manchester United, as their club captain Antonio Valencia, who also plays as a right-back, is set to bid a farewell to the Theatre of Dreams at the end of the season.
