The Premier League weekend just gone saw Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all claim wins to give their top four hopes a boost.
United breezed past Watford at Old Trafford, Chelsea played well to beat Spurs (and get one over on Jose Mourinho), and Arsenal came out on top in an Emirates goalfest with Everton.
Outsiders Wolves also produced an impressive performance against Norwich to keep up their chase for a European place alive.
Elsewhere, Burnley kept up their recent good form with a solid 3-0 win over Bournemouth and Southampton's revival continued with a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.
And City put their Champions League ban behind them to edge past Leicester. Gabriel Jesus came off the bench to win the game at the King Power Stadium.
With all that and more in mind, here's Mirror Football's Premier League team of the week.
Bernd Leno (Arsenal)
The Arsenal keeper single handedly won his side the game with a series of late saves to deny Everton.
Leno's team-mates lauded him a hero and rightly so.
It appears Arteta's vote of confidence in the keeper – to play him in the Europa League in midweek – has worked.
Phil Bardsley (Burnley)
A clean sheet and an assist for the 34-year-old as Burnley swept aside Bournemouth 3-0.
Bardsley has been an important player for Sean Dyche's side lately as they've won four and drawn one of their past five games.
Jack Stephens (Southampton)
Described by the Southern Daily Echo as the "best player on the pitch" in a 2-0 win.
Stephens has flourished since coming back into the team and is one of the first names on Ralph Hasenhüttl's teamsheet.
Willy Boly (Wolves)
Wolves have not conceded a goal since his return from injury – that's three Premier League games in a row.
Will be key for Wolves' top four run-in.
Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)
One of the finest strikers of the ball and exhibited his talent against Spurs, rifling Chelsea's second goal into the bottom corner.
Wreaked havoc down the left all game and reminded many why he's still one of the league's best left-backs.
Kevin De Bruyne (Man City)
Kevin De Bruyne caused Leicester City no amount of problems in the win at the King Power Stadium.
City must get their Champions League ban overturned and keep him at all costs.
Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd)
Scored his first goal for United and played a role in the other two. Showing why United paid £46million for his services and silencing the doubters.
Dwight McNeil (Burnley)
Has received plenty of attention this season and his latest performance will only enhance his reputation.
A goal and an assist for the winger in Burnley's convincing win.
Diogo Jota (Wolves)
The forward followed up his midweek Europa League hat-trick with another two goals against Norwich. He also set up Raul Jimenez's goal.
The boy is on fire.
