Premier League Player of the Week – Round 9

0 Comments

Apologize to Newcastle United and Georginio Wijnaldum, because four-goal games don’t matter as much as they used to.

After waiting a month, the Premier League’s UEFA Champions League members have put together a dominant run through the Player of the Week honors.

Raheem Sterling is the latest name on the list, joining his teammate Sergio Aguero who won it in Round 9.

And Sterling did it in style, albeit aided by some disappointing defending from Bournemouth, pouring forth a hat trick of goals on the Cherries in a blowout win this weekend.

Sterling tapped in an early goal, walked around a pair of diving Cherries defenders for his second, and capitalized on Jesus Navas’ non-committal break to complete the trick.

Finishers finish.
