Another weekend of Premier League action is in the books, and boy what a weird weekend it was.

- Tottenham looked hopeless in defeat to Brighton.

- Man Utd scrapped past Norwich City at Old Trafford.

- And Arsenal lost their third league game in a row.

So following all that weirdness, we thought it'd be a good idea to let you know who the best performing player from each Premier League team was during matchday 33.


Tottenham - Hugo Lloris (6/10) vs Brighton

What we said: "Maybe a little shaky in his passing but nothing to really complain about. Couldn't do much with the goal."


Brighton - Marc Cucurella (8/10) vs Tottenham

What we said: "Had Kulusevski's number all afternoon. A great block to stop Kane from getting a dangerous shot off."


Man Utd - Cristiano Ronaldo (9/10) vs Norwich

What we said: "Couldn't have asked for an easier pair of early goals. At 37, he was ineffective in open play when the service dried up, but went on to complete his hat-trick with a free kick."


Norwich City - Kieran Dowell (8/10) vs Man Utd

What we said: "Worked super hard on Norwich's right flank and his reward was a goal and assist."


Watford - Juraj Kucka (8/10) vs Brentford

What we said: "Put in a real shift. His energy and drive absolutely changed the game."


Brentford - Pontus Jansson (8/10) vs Watford

What we said: "Too physical for Pedro. Kept the young striker relatively quiet before making the decisive impact late on."


Southampton - Fraser Forster (9/10) vs Arsenal

What we said: "Almost topped his contender for save of the season with a pair of brilliant stops after the break."


Arsenal - Eddie Nketiah (6/10) vs Southampton

What we said: "Delivered a convincing tribute act to the absent Alexandre Lacazette, peppering the game with some nice link play but often turned down the chance to go for goal himself."


Newcastle - Bruno Guimaraes (9/10) vs Leicester

What we said: "Scored the least glamorous goal of his career but they all count. So impressive on the ball, a cut above everyone else on the pitch really. Times his run perfectly to score the winner."


Leicester - Ademola Lookman (7/10) vs Newcastle

What we said: "Leicester's most threatening forward. Finished calmly for the opener and caused Newcastle plenty of issues on the edge of the box. Just needs to be more clinical."


West Ham - Tomas Soucek (7/10) vs Burnley

What we said: "Given his height, he was beaten a little easily in the air for the opener. Got into some more advanced positions in the second period and that eventually paid off when he knocked in Lanzini's free kick."


Burnley - Nick Pope (8/10) vs West Ham

What we said: "Excellent save to deny Bowen, and made a good punch under pressure soon after. Three stunning saves late on saved a point for his side. Dominated his box."
