Arouna Kone: Leaves with match ball after hat-trick for Everton

Arouna Kone and Francis Coquelin were among the statistical stars of the weekend, with Anthony Martial and Diego Costa among this week’s strugglers.

Kone helped himself to a hat-trick in Everton’s 6-2 thumping of Sunderland – a result which helped the Toffees roar up our Power Rankings – and earned the Ivorian perfect marks for his efforts.

Arsenal enforcer Coquelin also impressed this weekend as Arsenal claimed a 3-0 win at Swansea to maintain their title challenge – though our Ref Review panel felt the Gunners benefited from a dubious decision in the game.

But it was no such a good afternoon for Manchester United’s new hero Martial – the Frenchman was again asked to play in an unfamiliar left-sided attacking role in the goalless draw at Crystal Palace – and misplaced a seasonal-high 20 passes in the game.

Another struggler was Chelsea striker Costa, who made a total of six unsuccessful touches as the Blues suffered the ignominy of another home defeat – this time 3-1 to Liverpool.

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…
