Another week of Premier League action down and, sadly, just seven more to go. There was certainly plenty of drama with Chelsea all but sealing the title, Tottenham mounting a furious late comeback and Hull City winning a relegation six-pointer. As for individual performances, here are the star performers who made Goal’s Fantasy Team of the Week:

GK: Kasper Schmeichel – Leicester City – 1 Game, 4 Saves, 1 Clean Sheet = 9 Points

DF: Maya Yoshida – Southampton – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Goal Conceded = 8 Points

DF: Phil Jagielka – Everton – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Goal Conceded = 8 Points

DF: Michael Keane – Burnley – 1 Game, 1 Clean Sheet = 7 Points

There are few things certain in life, but Burnley being terrific in defence at Turf Moor is one of them. In fact, Sean Dyche’s men are top five in home defence in the league. Keane, in particular, is in the the top 20 defenders in clean sheets with eight, and six of them have come at home.

MF: Mesut Ozil – Arsenal – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points

Ozil is certainly not having the season that most expected, but it was nice to see a performance like this from him again. He has been playing more centrally since Danny Welbeck found his way into the starting XI and fantasy owners will be hoping that the German midfielder will now return to his creative best.

MF: Christian Eriksen – Tottenham – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points

MF: Dele Alli – Tottenham – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points

Alli is just in ridiculous form right now ranking in the top five in goals, assists, and shots on target over the past five matches. That run has made him the best Fantasy midfielder in our game with the most points (170) and goals (15) for the season on the whole.

MF: Eden Hazard – Chelsea – 1 Game, 2 Goals, 1 Penalty Missed = 11 Points

FWD: Abel Hernandez – Hull – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 2 Assists = 13 Points

Hernandez has always had all the pieces to be a great player but rarely puts them all together. Not so this week though. He led all players in scoring this week and did it against a very tough Middlesbrough defence. Now the question is, can he keep it up?

FWD: Troy Deeney – Watford – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 10 Points

FWD: M’Baye Niang – Watford – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 10 Points
