A dramatic Fergie time turn around for United, another win for Spurs and a crucial late goal as Arsenal beat Man City. Here's this week's best 11:

GK: Sam Johnstone

Made five saves and kept another clean sheet as Palace struggled to create going forward. He has kept four clean sheets in eight games (the most in the league) which is the key to the way Palace play. He is showing why he has been called up the the latest England squad.

CB: Murillo

Murillo has already impressed this season for Forrest but showed more flashes of brilliance in a goalless draw with Palace. His floated a perfect ball to Gibbs-White, who was unlucky to hit the post. He then when on a crazy run through 5 Palace players and fired a shot straight at Johnstone, proving that even centre backs in Brazil have outrageous skills.

CB: Micky Van de Ven

Performed well even after Spurs went down to ten men. He demonstrated his pace and ability playing out from the back. Then scored the only goal of the game late on to put Spurs at the top of the table after 8 games.

CB: William Saliba 

Another solid performance from one of the leagues youngest and most inform defenders. He dealt with Erling Haaland like he was unaware he scored over 50 goals last season, limiting him to no real chances.

LB: Solly March

With Estupinian out, March filled in at left back against Liverpool. He was strong defensively and assisted Lewis Dunk with a well delivered free-kick.

CM: Scott Mctominay

A dream for every football fan is scoring a stoppage time winner for your boyhood club, never mind TWO! Coming off the bench in the 87th minute might make Mctominay's cameo the shortest to earn a feature in the Team of the Week all season. With United 1-0 down and pressure mounting on Ten Hag, the Old Trafford faithful were put into mayhem after a great half-volley and then a header which flew in off the post. Could this be the turning point in United's season?

CM: Declan Rice

A complete performance that Arsenal fans had in mind when they signed Rice for 100M from West Ham. He was everywhere throughout the game, breaking up play and trying to play progressive passes in what turned out to be a scrappy game. His biggest contribution was a headed clearance off the line, preventing a certain Man City goal, which otherwise may have seen City runaway with it. Rice stepped up in Arsenal's biggest game so far and helped them earn a first win in 6 years against the Champions.

CM: James Garner

Ex-Man United youngster James Garner impressed again this weekend, as did many Everton players, surprisingly. He won the ball high and scored in the 8th minute of the game, helping settle any Goodison Park nerves. He also made 6 tackles showing he can break up play as well as his ability on the ball.

RW: Jack Harrison

His best performance in an Everton shirt. Positive every time he got the ball and got a goal and an assist. The goal was one of the best this week, a perfectly executed lob over Neto.

ST: Alexander Isak

Another 2 goals which would've earnt Newcastle a win despite Kudus' late equaliser. He has already scored 6 times this season and is second in the goal scorers table (behind Haaland on 8).

LW: Raheem Sterling

Forced a Burnley own-goal to put Chelsea level after a great run and cut-back. Then scored the third goal to put the game to bed with a excellent left-footed finish. He caused problems throughout with his electric pace and ability to dribble at speed. His performances could see him regain his place in the England squad.
