Dele Alli now has as many goals and assists in his first 100 Premier League games as Eden Hazard but who would you consider the better player?

Saturday Lunchtime KO

Liverpool fans still hold a grudge against Crystal Palace and Selhurst Park for derailing THAT title push, but the Reds have actually now won their last four games at the ground since that fateful day.

Meanwhile, Luka Milivojevic has now scored seven goals this year- all of which he has fired home from 12 yards.

Mohamed Salah had a quiet game for his standards but it took just one moment of extreme composure in the Eagles’ box to win the game for the Reds.

Sadio Mane should have seen his second red of the season for deliberate handball. The only reason referee Neil Swarbrick didn’t hand Mane a second yellow can only bottle down to him realising that he has already given Mane a questionable yellow for simulation despite the Senegalese receiving contact in the box.

A lucky escape for Mane owners.

Saturday 3pm KO

Romelu Lukaku was widely seen as the must-have pick going into Gameweek 33 of Premier League action and he duly delivered after just five minutes of action.

Marko Arnautovic was back in the goals with a brace against a woeful Southampton side. The Austrian had blanked in the the three games prior to Gameweek 33 but scored seven in the nine games previously.

The Hammers play Chelsea next, the team the Austrian started his goalscoring run against way back in Gameweek 16.

Arnautovic = Arnie

It was a surprise that Leicester only escaped with one red card against Brighton after their entire back-four got themselves in the referee’s book.

Alexis Sanchez scored for the first time in six games and assisted Lukaku’s goal to hand him a tidy 21 points. But worryingly, he still only managed two shots in the game.

Before Gameweek 33, Sanchez had failed to have a shot in HALF of his games since joining United in January.

It’s still a wait and see as to whether Sanchez can deliver consistent returns at his new club.

Newcastle are on a two game win streak and have kept three clean sheets in their last five. They should not roll over as easily as many will hope next week against Leicester.

Jamie Vardy scored with his only shot of the game in the dying seconds on the counter-attack. Classic Vardy.

Plenty of goals in the Saturday afternoon fixtures and with no real upset, Gameweek 33 was definitely a winnable super-six.

Saturday evening KO

Sam Allardyce provided new meaning to parking the bus to the delight of all the Everton faithful at Goodison Park.

A lot of Manchester City assets were sold ahead of the double Gameweeks despite a very enticing fixture in Gameweek 33. Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva and Kevin de Bruyne were all directly involved in City’s three goals.

But luckily Everton scored just after the hour mark to wipe out City’s clean sheet.

Sunday lunchtime KO

There was still much to play for on Sunday, with Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea all to play. Stoke were the other team but if you had any of their players in your starting lineup, you’re doing fantasy wrong.

Arsenal have nothing left to play for in the league and their key players are returning to full fitness. So it’s that time of the year again when the Gunners put together some consistency.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took the first penalty despite sharing the pitch with Alexandre Lacazette, giving rise to plenty of optimism that he would slot away the second penalty for his hat-trick.

But the former Dortmund man gave up responsibility for Arsenal’s second attempt from 12 yards to Lacazette to the frustration of many.

Sunday 4pm KO

Harry Kane was spotted at Stamford Bridge clutching his designer wash-bag and sporting his designer wireless headphones. All this meant was that he was in the squad and might have started.

It took 74 minutes for him to take to the pitch but by them, the damage was done as Spurs were 3-1 up. Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that he could start on the pitch again as early as next week.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s an airbourne Alvaro Morata.

The man who is better at football with his head than both of his feet combined scored with his noggin to open the scoring.

Willian was much backed going into Gameweek 33 but his customary shot from outside the box sailed wide.

Dele Alli now has as many goals and assists in his first 100 Premier League games (61) as Eden Hazard had.

Who’s the better player?
