Could this prove to be one of the most seismic weekends of the season?

We had movers at the top and shocks at the bottom with the narrative alarm sounding at every turn.

Here are our Premier League awards.


The Getting Better All The Time Award

Marcus Rashford – what more is there to say about the Manchester United man?

He’s the best forward in Europe right now and added two more to his tally this weekend as United beat Leicester 3-0.

It means that Rashford has now scored 17 goals at Old Trafford this term, the most for any United player since Wayne Rooney over a decade ago.


The Bend It Like Becks Award

Not since David Beckham have we seen a free-kick taker like this in the Premier League.

James Ward-Prowse was at it again on Saturday as he scored his 17th set piece to hand Southampton a win over Chelsea.


The Title Race Is On Award

We really do have a title race this season.

Arsenal got back to winning ways on Saturday as they came from behind with two injury time goals to beat Aston Villa 4-2.


The Magic Wand Award

Chelsea hit a new low this weekend with a defeat to bottom of the table Southampton.

It means that Graham Potter has now won just one game in 2023.

He really needs to produce that magic wand, and quickly.


The ‘Can We Play You Every Week?’ Award

Liverpool have now gone 13 games unbeaten against Newcastle.

The Reds impressed on Saturday evening as they beat the Magpies 2-0 thanks to goals from Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo.


The Couldn’t Finish Their Dinner Award

Manchester City were made to rue their lack of cutting edge on Saturday as they drew 1-1 with Nottingham Forest.

As Squawka revealed, they created 16 chances at the City ground but wound up dropping points and allowing Arsenal to leapfrog them in the table.


The Captain Fantastic Award

Seamus Coleman scored only his second goal in 97 appearances for Everton this weekend.

But what a goal it was.

From a tight angle, the Blues captain rifled in to hand Sean Dyche’s men a crucial win at the bottom of the table.
