Defender: Bjorn Engels (Aston Villa)

Signed from Reims this Summer, the centre-back seems to be quickly becoming a fan-favourite at Villa Park and put in a titanic display to nullify any threat the Toffees posed. His defensive trait also earned him the maximum bonus points.

Defender: Jannick Vestergaard - Southampton - 9 points

Another member of the Southampton backline which stood stand against Brighton. The Danish defender was instrumental in keeping the clean sheet and an additional three bonus points for his impressive performance.
