It was another dramatic weekend of Premier League action with plenty of talking points to cover.

Here are our weekly awards …

The Club 100 Award

Congratulations to Sadio Mané who is officially a member of Liverpool’s Club 100.

His goal against Crystal Palace on Saturday completed his centurion – and what a signing he’s been for the Reds.

The Lightning Fast Start Award

Did anybody expect anything different? Cristiano Ronaldo scores goals.

After his equaliser against West Ham, he has scored in every game (three games, four goals) he has played since returning to Manchester United.

The Clean Sheet Award

This one is pretty much self explanatory.

After another clean sheet – this time against Tottenham – Chelsea have now kept more clean sheets (15) than they have conceded goals (14) in the Premier League under Thomas Tuchel.

The Firing Blanks Award

Manchester City probably need a centre forward – who’d have thunk it?

City had just one shot on target against Southampton, the joint fewest they’ve managed in a top flight game under Pep Guardiola.

The Brick Wall at Burnley Award

All eyes have been on Ben White following his big money move from Brighton, but Gabriel returning has been huge for Arsenal.

The Brazilian was monstrous against Burnley on Saturday and gave as good as he got.

The Pick Your Moments Award

What a finale we were treated to at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Mark Noble – who hadn’t missed a penalty since October 2016 – saw his injury time penalty saved by David de Gea – who hadn’t saved a penalty since October 2014.

The Short But Sweet Award

Aston Villa fans only saw Leon Bailey for 21 minutes on Saturday – and what a 21 minutes it was.

The Jamaican came on, scored, assisted another and went off, completing a pretty impressive evening’s work.

The Friendly Fire Award

Lucas Digne has been one of Everton’s better signings in recent history, but he might want to try scoring in the other goal.

No player has scored more own goals than him since he made his Premier League debut (3).
