In the Premier League this weekend, we saw a stalemate in the Manchester derby, a Harry Kane hat-trick and Sunderland’s continued run of dominance in the north-east.
As the season continues to take shape, the Press Association's reporters have put together their team of the week based on the weekend’s ten fixtures.
Kasper Schmeichel, Leicester
Played 90 minutes during a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. Secured a first clean sheet of the season with a brilliant save from Patrick Bamford.

Carl Jenkinson, West Ham
Played 90 minutes during West Ham’s spectacular 2-1 defeat of champions Chelsea. Another strong display from the full-back, who is having a fine season.
Nicolas Otamendi, Manchester City
Made a series of timely interceptions to protect Joe Hart during a tense 0-0 game against rivals Manchester United.
Jonny Evans, West Brom
Put in 90 minutes against Norwich. Stood tall as The Baggies claimed victory and a clean sheet away from home.
Marcos Rojo, Manchester United
Arguably his best performance for United in marshalling Kevin de Bruyne during the Manchester derby.
N’Golo Kante, Leicester
Played 90 minutes during a 1-0 home win against Crystal Palace. He is living up to his manager’s claim he can be the new Claude Makelele.
Mesut Ozil, Arsenal
Set up the opening goal with a brilliant cross that helped secure three points against Everton and also hit the post late on during the 2-1 victory.
Christian Eriksen, Tottenham
A virtuoso 90-minute display, only missing a goal from the playmaker during Spurs’ 5-1 drubbing of Bournemouth.
Dimitri Payet, West Ham
Created the opening goal and at the centre of everything West Ham did well in the famous victory against Chelsea.
Harry Kane, Tottenham
Came off in the 85th minute after emphatically returning to form with a hat-trick.
Steven Fletcher, Sunderland
Made a big contribution to the Black Cats’ crucial win against rivals Newcastle. Won a penalty and deservedly netted the third late on.
