Premier League match-day 14 is now done and dusted. The second part of the midweek matches took place on Wednesday night. Manchester Clubs continue to occupy position one and two. The chasing park consisting of Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool also won their matches. Today, we want to take a look at five best performers in the mid-week matches.
5. Raheem Sterling- Manchester City
Manchester City continues to grind out results in matches their opponents dropped points. On Wednesday, Pep Guardiola side restored the 8 point gap between them and rivals Manchester United. Raheem Sterling who is currently in fine form scored in the last minute of added time to earn his side 3 valuable points against Southampton at Etihad Stadium. Oriol Romeu had equalized in the 75th minute after Kevin De Bruyne netted the opener in the 47th minute.
4. Olivier Giroud- Arsenal
Arsenal thrashed Huddersfield 5-0 at Emirates to keep their slim title hopes alive. All the big guns scored but we choose two-goal hero Olivier Giroud today. He grabbed a double in 68th and 87th minute to end any hopes of a comeback by the visitors. Alexandre Lacazette got an early goal when he scored in the 3rd minute. Other goals were scored by Alexis Sanchez in the 69th minute and playmaker Mesut Ozil in the 72nd minute.
3. Mohamed Salah- Liverpool
Liverpool continues to believe because Mohamed Salah has made them start to do so. The Reds overcame Stoke City 3-0 away from home on Wednesday night thanks to Sadio Mane and a double from the Egyptian ‘Messi’. The summer signing came off the bench to ask Jurgen Klopp why he did not start the match. He did so by scoring two goals in 77th and 83rd minute. He already looks like the best signing in Europe so far this season.
