Andrea Consigli – Sassuolo
Kept a clean sheet in a team often known for conceding goals. Atoned for an error by making an excellent save from Victor Osimhen and then denied the efforts of Fabian Ruiz and Dries Mertens.
Impressed with his attacking play on the left and scored the opening goal with a fine solo effort.
Chris Smalling – Roma
Demonstrated his importance to the Giallorossi defence. Kept things tight at the back and positioned himself well.
Federico Dimarco – Hellas Verona
The former Inter youth product dominated on the left flank and provided two assists in the second half.
Antonin Barak – Hellas Verona
The Czech midfielder got a double for the Gialloblu and became the first foreigner since Adrian Mutu in January 2002 to do it.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – Lazio
The Serbian international impressed with his distribution and he scored a superb free-kick for the Biancocelesti’s second goal.
Franck Kessie – AC Milan
Worked hard in the midfield for the Rossoneri and opened the scoring against Udinese.
Gervinho – Parma
The Inter defence struggled to contain the Ivorian winger and he scored both goals for the Ducali.
Alvaro Morata – Juventus
Opened the scoring against Spezia and impressed with his overall play.
Luis Muriel – Atalanta
Only played in the first half against Crotone but it was more than enough for the Colombian international to score a well-taken brace.
Musa Barrow – Bologna
Scored two wonderful goals for the Felsinei their victory against Cagliari. The first was a wonderful curling effort and the second was a thunderous low drive.
