It was another exciting weekend of football in the English Premier League as game-week 23 went down with its highs and lows for fans.

For fans of Manchester United, dropping a two-goal lead and three points will certainly not go down well, as they fumbled yet again in thier chase for glory.

Meanwhile, Chelsea fans would be beaming with smiles as it looks like they have gotten the right man for the job at last. Three wins on a bounce for the blues and they move back into the thick of the action.

As for Liverpool, the big question will be - where did it go all wrong?; as Man City recorded an emphatic victory at a ground which was once a fortress.

Some players performed brilliantly during the weekend, but how about those who failed to live up to the billing?

Goalkeeper- Allison Becker (Liverpool)

This man was the major reason for the big scoreline at Anfield, gifted his opponents with two of their goals.

Defenders - Cedric Soares (Arsenal), Jan Bednarek (Southampton) & Fabinho (Liverpool)

Soares was very sloppy at left-back and faulted the only goal of the game.

12 goals conceded in a space of four days for Southampton, and two own goals for Bednarek.

Fabinho gave away a needless penalty and though it was missed, the likes of Sterling and Foden had a good day against him.

Midfielders - Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Thomas Partey (Arsenal), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool) & Mason Holgate (Everton)

Lots of misplaced crossing from Chilwell and also gave a penalty thanks to VAR.

Another injury for Partey sums up his performance as they were beaten by Villa.

Asides from a beautiful volleyed shot in the first half, nothing else was seen from Bobby.

Giving the ball away frequently was what Holgate did more against United, was mesmerized by Rashford all night long.

Forwards - Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Alexander Lacazette (Arsenal), & Mason Greenwood (Manchester United)

Just like Firmino, Mane was so quiet in the attacking department yesterday.

Laca had no impact in the game, was replaced before the 70th minute.

Greenwood had a frustrating night with his lack of precision despite his runs from the flanks.


So there you have it, the flops of week 23 in a 3-4-3 formation. Liverpool players dominate the list after a very poor performance at Anfield.

Who was the biggest flop of the weekend for you?
