Chelsea star top touches charts; Mane shines for Liverpool

Date published: Tuesday 14th February 2017 10:48

Two goals aside, the stats underlined why Sadio Mane was back to his best for Liverpool this weekend, while new signings at West Ham and Southampton are already having a major impact.

Mane struck twice in as many minutes as the Reds downed a beleaguered Tottenham side on Saturday evening – you can read our Player Ratings from the game as well as our thoughts on the ‘return’ of ‘ruthlessly aggressive’ Liverpool in our Monday Verdict.

We also discussed the impact Paul Clement has had at Swansea in our weekly analysis and their summer signing from Barnsley, Alfie Mawson, scored the second-highest performance of the week – behind only Alexis Sanchez, whose controversial strike was discussed in our weekly Ref Review.
