Gabriel – Lecce (3 Team of the Week appearances)
Made several crucial saves for the Salentini and they were from shots by Lazio’s key players.
Amir Rrahmani – Hellas Verona (2 apps)
Limited the influence of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku in the Inter attack and provided a fine assist for the Gialloblu equaliser.
Rafael Toloi – Atalanta (3 apps)
Nearly opened the scoring in the first half, only for Sampdoria goalkeeper Emil Audero to deny him from point blank range, but he headed in the first goal with 15 minutes remaining.
Fabio Lucioni – Lecce
Limited the attacking threat of Lazio star Ciro Immobile and scored the winner for the Apulian side.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Roma (2 apps)
Was involved in a lot of dangerous attacking plays for the Giallorossi. Scored the equaliser and assisted for Veretout’s winner.
Miguel Veloso – Hellas Verona
Ran the show in midfield with Sofyan Amrabat and scored the equaliser with an excellent strike just inside the box.
Jordan Veretout – Roma (2 apps)
His work ethic could not be questioned and he scored the winner with a spectacular long-range effort.
Darko Lazovic – Hellas Verona
Gave Milan Skriniar nightmares in the Inter defence. Opened the scoring after an excellent dribble and beat Samir Handanovic from a tight angle.
Simone Verdi – Torino
The former Bologna and Napoli winger provided some much-needed creative spark in the Granata attack. Had two great chances to score in the first half before playing a part in the Ales Mateju own goal and Andrea Belotti’s goal to give Torino the lead.
Ante Rebic – AC Milan (3 apps)
The Croatian forward was once again involved in the goals for the Rossoneri. Earned the penalty to pull the score back to 2-1, was involved in the third goal, and scored the fourth to seal win.
Domenico Berardi – Sassuolo (2 apps)
Troubled Takehiro Tomisayu throughout the game and opened the scoring in style with a fantastic individual strike.
