The Premier League was in full action last weekend as ten matches were played on Saturday and Sunday. The weekend's matches were full of dramas and unexpected incidents that made the weekend controversial and interesting.
Let's take a look at the four underperforming players over the weekend.
1. Harry Kane:
Harry Kane has not been in good form since the start of this season and has been getting worse as each match passes by. The 28-year-old England forward was very close to leaving Tottenham this summer for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City before his club blocked his transfer.
Harry Kane is yet to score this season and yesterday he delivered yet another lackadaisical performance which led Tottenham to lose 3-0 to Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium.
2. Son Heung-Min:
Son Heung-Min has been the most impressive player for Tottenham this season, scoring two out of their only three goals this season. The South Korean winger was rushed back from injury to feature for Tottenham but he underperformed in the game.
He was totally outclassed by Chelsea's Thiago Silva who kept him at bay throughout the match.
3. Jack Grealish:
Jack Grealish was signed for a record £100 million to help solve Manchester City's scoring problem but the Englishman has yet to live up to expectations. Jack Grealish endured a terrible game against Southampton and was unable to influence the game as Manchester City were held by Southampton at the Etihad Stadium.
4. Romelu Lukaku:
Romelu Lukaku scoring streak finally ended after he failed to score against Tottenham last weekend. The Belgian striker scored in three consecutive matches but was terrible in Chelsea's 3-0 win against Tottenham. Romelu Lukaku failed in his primary duty as a striker which is to score and was bailed out by Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger who scored for the team.
