Wojciech Szczesny – Juventus

One of the reasons the Bianconeri left Rome with a point. Made important saves from the attempts from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Pedro, and Edin Dzeko.

Hans Hateboer – Atalanta

Gave Torino left-back Nicola Murru plenty of headaches on La Dea’s right flank and he made a run at the far post to score the third goal for the Orobici.

Luca Caldirola – Benevento

A true captain’s game from the Stregoni centre-back. Tidy in his distribution from the back, solid defensively, and scored twice in inspire the comeback.

Adam Marusic – Lazio

Dominated on the left flank for the Aquile and played a part in both goal against Cagliari. The opener for Manuel Lazzari was largely down to his dribbling and he assisted the second for Ciro Immobile.

Hirving Lozano – Napoli

The Partenopei winger developed a great understanding with Dries Mertens against Genoa, scoring twice from his assists and could have added a third.

Roberto Soriano – Bologna

The Felsinei midfielder had a direct involvement in three of his team’s four goals, scoring twice and assisting for Andreas Skov Olsen.

Jordan Veretout – Roma

An all-round performance from the Giallorossi midfielder. Got into the right positions, knew when to drop back or push forward, and scored twice, including one from the penalty spot.

Gomez – Atalanta

Played a starring role in his 200th Serie A appearance, scoring from long range and providing two lovely assists.

Alexis Sanchez – Inter

Although he only played for 12 minutes, his impact was incredible and he inspired the late comeback against Fiorentina. Played a part in the equaliser scored by Romelu Lukaku and assisted in the winner for Danilo D’Ambrosio.

Francesco Caputo – Sassuolo

Was unfortunate to have three goals disallowed against Spezia albeit rightly so. He was still influential in the goals that stood, earning the penalty for , assisting for Gregoire Defrel, and scoring the fourth.

Franck Ribery – Fiorentina

A stellar performance from the French veteran. Provided two sumptuous assists and would have had a third if Dusan Vlahovic did not squander an easy chance to seal the match. Once he was off the pitch, the Gigliati squandered a 3-2 lead and lost 4-3.
