Premier League team of the midweek dominated by Aston Villa, Man City, Liverpool and Wolves - gallery

Here are the best-performing players from the midweek Premier League games on Tuesday 25, Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 April – according to WhoScored ratings.

The Premier League offered plenty of midweek entertainment from Tuesday 25 to Thursday 27 April, with 29 goals from 10 games played. These fixtures included a huge six-pointer in the title race as well as some massive relegation battle scraps, with big movements at both ends of the league standings.

Manchester City thrashed Arsenal 4-1 in the most important clash of the midweek to take complete control at the summit of the table. Courtesy of goals from Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones and Erling Haaland, Pep Guardiola’s side are now just two points behind with two games in hand.

Tuesday evening was a fairly tame start to the round of matches when it came to goalscoring but the results had big implications. Wolverhampton Wanderers moved nine points clear of the relegation zone with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, whereas Aston Villa’s 1-0 victory against Fulham boosted their European hopes.

Leicester City fought back for a point at Leeds United to keep tabs on those around them and Nottingham Forest soared out of the bottom three with a surprise 3-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion. AFC Bournemouth moved seven clear of the drop by beating Southampton 1-0 away from home.

Elsewhere, Liverpool came from behind to win 2-1 at West Ham United, Newcastle United humbled Everton with a 4-1 victory at Goodison Park, Brentford dominated Chelsea to beat them 2-0, and Tottenham Hotspur pegged Manchester United back to draw 2-2.

So many players impressed this midweek that it would be difficult to select just 11 to form a team of the week but, rather thankfully, WhoScored’s rating system makes things a lot easier. With that in mind, here are the best-performing stars based on WhoScored ratings. See below.
