Bournemouth had been ice cold, but Joshua King has been steadily heating up.

King, 25, has nine goals in his last 10 matches after bagging a hat trick in Bournemouth’s 3-2 win over West Ham United at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

That brings the ex-Manchester United man to 11 goals on the season, and suits him up with Premier League Player of the Week honors.

King missed a penalty kick in the win, but his otherwise wonderful performance was enough to overcome the error.

His first goal was the best, a juggling move to turn and fire home. The second and third goals were all about positioning, as the 25-year-old clinically finished a pair of in-tight chances to continue his career year.

The Norwegian international also posted three international goals in eight caps during 2016, his finest totals in both categories. King has seven goals in 27 caps since 2012.

Harry Kane was named the Premier League Player of the Week after he scored a first half hat trick to lead Tottenham Hotspur to a resounding 4-0 win against Stoke City at White Hart Lane.

Kane, 23, has now scored three hat tricks in his last nine games and the England international is set for another record-breaking season as he’s already scored 22 goals in 27 games in all competitions this season, plus he leads the PL with 17 goals.

Take a look at the video above to see Kane ripping Stoke’s defense apart in clinical fashion.

Can you believe he’s only 23 years old?

Vardy, 29, scored his first-ever Premier League hat trick as he led Leicester City to a stunning 4-2 win over Manchester City at the King Power Stadium.

Prior to this weekend Vardy had scored just twice all season but now he’s back with a bang and has boosted Leicester’s battle against relegation as the reigning champs, just like Vardy, have had a challenging start to the 2016-17 season.

This lad is a samba sensation.

Philippe Coutinho is back at the heart of the Liverpool team and he was crowned as the Player of the Week in the Premier League for Matchday 6.

Coutinho, 24, scored a sensational long-range goal, grabbed an assist and created four chances in a dominant performance during Liverpool’s 5-1 win against Hull City on Saturday. 

Watch the video above to relive a Coutinho masterclass as Jurgen Klopp‘s side continue their fine start to the PL season.

No wonder some refer to Coutinho as Liverpool’s Harry Potter.

He’s a wizard.

Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne ran riot against Manchester United in the Manchester derby and has deservedly been crowned Premier League Player of the Week for Matchday 4.

The Belgian forward, 25, scored the opener and saw his shot come off the post and into the path of Kelechi Iheanacho who struck City’s second goal in their 2-1 win over their crosstown rivals.

De Bruyne continually stole the ball back in dangerous areas in the first half to help City dominate United and in the second half he was lethal on the counter attack, hitting the post with another effort as the ball somehow squirmed across the line and out when he looked destined to score his second and City’s third of the game.

Pep Guardiola praised De Bruyne after the game and in the video above you can see exactly why.
