It was Matchweek 36 of the Premier League, which was filled with drama and action. While Liverpool and Manchester City kept their tussle at the top of the table alive with win in respective matches, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur were unable to win their respective matches, making the race to end the season in the top four even more interesting.

Liverpool notched up a 5-0 win over the already relegated Huddersfield Town while Manchester City had a hard-fought outing away from home against Burnley, which they finally managed to win by 0-1. Chelsea and Manchester United took on each other in a needle clash at Old Trafford and the Blues would consider themselves lucky to leave the field with one point from the contest, courtesy of a goalkeeping blunder from David De Gea. Arsenal, however, would be undone by the heavy 3-0 defeat they had to suffer against Leicester City as a result of some schoolboy defending while Tottenham would be kicking themselves to allow West Ham United walk away with all three points from the London Derby at White Hart Lane.

Here is a look at the Team of the Week, depending on how the teams and their players fared against each other in Matchweek 36.

Tom Heaton

He was in outstanding form against Manchester City, flying around the face of the goal and blocking almost every shot from Aguero and company. Would be definitely gutted to end up on the losing side though.

Ricardo Pereira

Looked agile throughout the match against Arsenal, taking on the big frame of Sead Kolasinac and troubling him with his dribbling skills. Topped it off with a pinpoint pass to Jamie Vardy as the Englishman scored a brace to sink the Gunners at the King Power Stadium.

Virgil Van Dijk

Had a solid outing against the Terriers as he ensured nothing went past him to trouble Alisson.

Conor Coady

The Wolves captain was in gallant form against Watford as he kept playing on the shoulders of Deulifeu and Gray and did not give them much space to take aim at the goal.

Andrew Robertson

Was a major influence on the pitch against the Terriers as he tormented the opposition defence down the left hand side. Dished out two brilliant assists to help Mane and Salah score.

Naby Keita

Opened the scoring for his side with a delightful strike in the very first minute of the match. Kept finding acres of space in the middle of the pitch and initiated a number of attacks for his side.

Youri Tielemans

Was an influential figure for the Foxes as he broke down the opposition attacks in the midfield and regained possession for his side. Scored a great goal to open the scoring off an inch-perfect cross from James Maddison.

Bernardo Silva

Peppered Heaton with shots throughout the match and could have ended with a brace on any other day. It was his assist which led to the eventual goal by Aguero.

Michail Antonio

Looked like a livewire on the pitch as he took on the Tottenham defenders with absolute ease. Scored a brilliant goal with an inch perfect shot to get the better of Lloris and secure a famous away win for his side in the London Derby.

Sadio Mane

Was in absolutely devastating mood against the subdued Terriers. Notched up a brace to boost his side’s chances of securing the Premier League trophy in a 5-0 routing of the visitors.

Sergio Aguero

Got his side out of the jail with the deciding goal to finally breach the resilient Burnley defence. Was a huge influence for his side throughout the match as he kept the Citizens well alive in the Premier League race.
