Yannick Bolasie: Crystal Palace winger fit to face Watford

Yannick Bolasie, Kevin De Bruyne and Sadio Mane were among the statistical stars of the weekend, with Mauro Zarate and Anthony Martial among this week’s strugglers.

Bolasie was in imperious form as Crystal Palace put struggling Newcastle to the sword 5-1 at Selhurst Park, while De Bruyne also earned the plaudits with the opening goal and a brilliant all-round display in Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Southampton.

City may top the Premier League table, but they can only manage third spot in our Power Rankings table, which is currently led by West Ham.

The Hammers’ goalscorer in their weekend draw with West Brom, Zarate, however, was not altogether on it, according to the stats.

Here, WhoScored.com look at the players that played the biggest roles for their teams over the weekend – and those that were more of a hindrance than a help…
