Top three goals of the week

Eren Derdiyok (Galatasaray): A fantastic overhead kick by the Swiss striker as Galatasaray beat Rizespor at home:

Serge Gnabry (Bremen): It may only have been a consolation strike but the former Arsenal man’s volley was outstanding. No wonder he has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich next summer.

Jordan Henderson (Liverpool): The Reds skipper scored the most important goal of the Premier League weekend, as Liverpool continued its excellent start to the season by beating Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge. Henderson’s dipping shot from range was unstoppable. 

Top three players of the week

Edinson Cavani (PSG): Four goals for the under-pressure Uruguayan – you can’t argue with that. 

Aritz Aduriz (Athletic Bilbao): Two goals for the evergreen 35-year-old as Athletic beat Valencia 2-1 and heaped more misery on Los Che boss Pako Ayesteran.  

Mauro Icardi (Inter): The Inter skipper played a key part in the two goals that beat Juventus and, ultimately (and quite ridiculously), saved Frank de Boer’s job.
