SPOILER ALERT: Alexis Sanchez will not be the first ever three-peat in the Bleeding Your Colors Barclays Premier League Player of the Award history. Though he did score again, his team's shameful disintegration against Swansea City excludes them from any award consideration. Outside of that game, which may or may not have had gambling implications leading to my bitterness, it was quite the entertaining week in the Premiership even without a flood of goals. Yes, even Liverpool losing again was entertaining. Seeing how many different ways Brendan Rodgers can shoot himself and his once promising squad in their respective feet is very intriguing. With no Monday Night Football this week because of the impeding international break, our awards come a day early. Who will wriggle the awards away from last week's winners?

WEEK 11 WINNERS
He may have taken two weeks off from being astounding to let Alexis Sanchez get some shine, but no player means more to his team right now than Sergio Aguero. He scored twice to save a point, and significant embarrassment, against Queens Park Rangers. Like teammate Edin Dzeko did a year ago, Kun scores at an amazing rate per minutes played and most importantly scores when his team needs him to most.
Runner-Up: Shane Long, F (Southampton)- 2 goals
Now that Perez is getting his shot for the Toon Army, he is making the most of it. He opened the scoring at the Hawthorns in breathtaking fashion with a back heel goal that combined precision with beauty. Tightly marked, the 21 year old Ayoze was able to take a grounded cross and deftly flick it, back to goal, into the lower left corner past a sprawling Ben Foster. It was an instant goal of the season contender. Full marks though to a close second in Nacer Chadli of Spurs. His volley in a loss to Stoke was quite the sublime effort in its own right.
You can see those two goals plus a couple other gems here.
