Top three goals of the week

Iker Muniain (Athletic Bilbao): A wonderful dribble and curled shot set Athletic on the way to a 3-2 win over Basque rival Real Sociedad.

Nabil Bentaleb (Schalke): The Algerian’s pile-driver from range cannoned in off the crossbar and gave Augsburg keeper Marwin Hitz no chance.

Juraj Kucka (AC Milan): The midfielder was given plenty of time to control the ball and line up his shot but he made no mistake with this cracker in Milan’s 3-1 win at Chievo. 

Top three players of the week

Maarten Stekelenburg (Everton): The Dutch goalkeeper saved two penalties and made some top-class saves in the 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad. He has been an excellent signing for Ronald Koeman this season.

Edin Dzeko (Roma): The Bosnian is Serie A's top scorer with seven goals, and he scored two more in Roma’s 3-1 away win at Napoli.

Anthony Modeste (FC Cologne): Two more goals for the French striker, who is spearheading Cologne’s surprise charge up the table.
