Who were the best performers around England’s top-flight on Saturday, and Sunday?
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero hit three goals and hit the post a stunning display in their 6-0 win over Chelsea in the Premier League.
Aguero was handed the Man of the Match award during his post-game interview with Sky Sports – but statisticians don’t agree.
Sergio Aguero celebrates his hat-trick against Chelsea.
Even though the Argentine hit his 11th Premier League hat-trick – the same amount as Alan Shearer – the algorithm over on WhoScored.com reckons he didn’t quite deserve the gong.
Aguero was given a rating of 9.95/10 for his performance but it Raheem Sterling who the stats picked out as the top player on the day, giving him an incredible 10/10.
Raheem Sterling starred for Manchester City.
But, bearing this in mind, who should have had the award in every other Premier League clash over the weekend according to WhoScored? Find out below…
