Some amazing performances, but these 11 players top the lot. Comment below if you don’t agree (Why wouldn’t you tho?)
KEPA ARRIZABALAGA (GK, Athletic Bilbao, 9/10) – When you have 10 shots whipped or nodded towards you from Madrid’s finests and you save 9 out of those… it is a great day for you. His defenders definitely didn’t help matters, but he stood his ground. Little wonder Madrid have been trailing him.
ROBERTO ROSALES (RB, Malaga, 8/10) – Unfortunate to be on the losing side. He ran up and down the right flank; breaking up attacks and creating chances for the forwards.
DAVID LOMBÁN (CB, Eibar, 8/10) – Did his job well when called upon and still managed to pop up at the other end to grab a goal.
ROBERTO SUÁREZ PIER (CB, Levante, 8/10) – Took charge of the defense; ended lot of Malaga moves and his distribution was top notch.
JOSE LUIS GAYA (LB, Valencia, 9/10) – Unlucky to be on the losing side, ran the left wing with confidence. Caused the opposition troubles while remaining solid at the back.
ALEIX GARCIA (DM, Girona, 9/10) – The Centre Midfielder scored his first league goal for Girona with a free kick and that wasn’t all he did; He was the most creative player at Estadio de Mendizorroza on Thursday night.
SERGIO CANALES (CM, Real Sociedad, 9/10) – Juanmi stole the show but Canales made it all happen. He owned the midfield; Connected the defense to attack well, great distribution and did some dirty works too. An all-round performance from the midfielder; his shooting let him down, but his teammates took off that burden from his shoulders.
JUANMI (AM, Real Sociedad, 10/10) – Came in with 18 minutes left to play and got two well-taken goals. That was his only two shots in the game, and that says a lot. Impressive cameo from the 24-year old.
LOIC REMY (CF, Getafe, 10/10) – Remy, His right foot, two goals. Remy chose the right time to score his first league goals for Getafe.
PACO ALCACER (CF, Barcelona, 9/10) – In an unlikely turn of events, Alcacer was the star man for Barcelona; scoring one and assisting another.
WILLIAN JOSE (CF, Real Sociedad, 9/10) – Another hard-worker against Atletico, his 14th La Liga goal this season proved decisive as Atletico struggled to come back into the game after that. He went on to assist another as La Real romped on.
Here’s how they line up
