Top three goals of the week:

Marcel Risse (FC Cologne): A last-minute free-kick winner from the German midfielder which seemed to gain speed as it flew into the top corner. Cologne is still joint-third after beating Gladbach away.

Hernanes (Juventus): The Prophet has not found his best form since leaving Inter Milan for Turin but this was a reminder of what he can do as the champion-elect maintained its seven-point lead at the top.

Kasper Dolberg (Ajax): Remember the name: The Danish teenager scored a fantastic first goal in Ajax’s 5-0 win over NEC Nijmegen. He scored two more in the first half. Just don’t call him the new Zlatan.

Players of the week

Carlos Kameni (Malaga): The goalkeeper shut out Barcelona at home with some astonishing saves, including two late on that left the home fans rubbing their eyes in disbelief.

Robin van Persie (Fenerbahce): The Dutch striker recovered from a nasty eye injury and scored twice as Fener beat Galatasaray 2-0 in the Istanbul derby.

Yaya Touré (Manchester City): The Ivorian midfielder has come in from the cold and scored two goals to remind Pep Guardiola how valuable he can be.
