Another dramatic and goal-packed weekend of Premier League action has come to a close, and we’ve taken a look at the best rated performers from gameweek 34. Represented in our Team of the Week are Burnley, Brentford, Everton, Crystal Palace and Liverpool. 


Arijanet Muric (Burnley) - 8.39 


Despite the one-sided scoreline at Bramall Lane on Saturday afternoon, Burnley goalkeeper Arijanet Muric still found himself with plenty of work to do. The Blades actually managed two more shots (18) than their opponents, even if they ultimately lost 4-1. The Kosovan international helped his side to the victory with a total of 10 saves and four high claims, and himself to a WhoScored rating of 8.39. 


Lorenz Assignon (Burnley) - 8.71 


Sticking with the Clarets, and right-back Lorenz Assignon takes a spot in our Team of the Week after a Player of the Match performance in Saturday’s victory. The 23-year-old Frenchman danced his way into the box before firing home his first ever Premier League goal with 40 minutes on the clock, before setting up teammate Lyle Foster for the visitors’ third of the afternoon shortly after half-time.
