The Leeds trio join the Magpies, Foxes and Seagulls in the Premier League’s worst XI of the weekend…

There were two worse goalkeepers than David De Gea this weekend, while Brighton, Leicester and Leeds are all represented by three players each in the worst XI of this crazy weekend…

Judging by their WhoScored ratingsthis batch had a poor bank holiday weekend…

PORT: Jason Steele – 4.47
The Brighton goalkeeper was the shortest of five sub-six keepers this weekend and one of three worse than David De Gea (5.59). Steele made one save but still conceded five goals from five shots on target, with Everton capitalizing on a first-half own goal from Roberto De Zerbi’s choice stopper. Currently.

RB: Timothy Chestnuts – 5.93
Going forward, Castagne helped spark a brief revival for Leicester, crossing in the build-up to Harvey Barnes’ goal and passing to Jamie Vardy before the striker’s missed penalty. But like most of Dean Smith’s men, he struggled defensively, giving Fulham the ball 14 times.

CB: Wout Faes – 5.70
The Leicester centre-back endured a miserable first half, running in circles for Fulham’s second goal and giving away the ball in the build up to the third. Overall, Faes lost two-thirds of his six duels.

CB: Fabian Schar – 5.69
The Newcastle centre-back scored an own goal on one side and missed a great chance on the other. Schar has given Arsenal the ball 14 times, most often from an aimless lump, with just one of his nine attempted long passes finding a black and white jersey.

LB: Pervis Estupinan – 5.40
The Brighton left-back looked to go AWOL for Everton’s first two goals and although he improved after the break the damage had been done. He has lost four of six duels and has given away the ball 23 times.

MF: Boubakary Soumare — 5.93
The Leicester midfielder was dispossessed for Fulham’s second goal and Soumare wildly missed a tackle in the build-up to the fourth. One of three hooked by Smith before the Foxes scored twice late as Fulham drew away.

MF: Adam Forshaw – 5.87
Just 11 accurate passes from central midfield to Forshaw and eight turnovers from 23 touches before Sam Allardyce put him out of his misery with 10 to go.

AM: Denis Undav – 5.80
Undav played just outside Danny Welbeck for 45 minutes before both were docked as part of a quadruple substitution just before half-time. Every fourth touch of 16 was a turnover, even if Undav will reasonably indicate a complete lack of serve.

RW: Willy Gnonto – 5.60
One of the great mysteries of Javi Gracia’s reign at Leeds was why he seemed wholly reluctant to play Gnonto, who has been one of the stars of a miserable season for the Yorkshiremen. Perhaps the answer lay in his 15 touches in just under an hour at the Etihad and his 0% success rate in five duels. No dribbling, crossing, shooting, tackling or interception.

LW: Jack Harrison – 5.62
It’s hard to be too harsh on Leeds forwards, especially those who only played the first hour or so as Manchester City shuffled around them. But Harrison is damned that he has lost possession 12 times from just 15 touches. Like Gnonto, Harrison also lost all of his duels without being able to complete a dribble.

CF: Callum Wilson – 5.81
The Newcastle forward was pocketed by Arsenal defenders Gabriel and Jakub Kiwior, who limited Wilson to just 17 touches, which resulted in 11 turnovers. No shots and just three accurate passes before Eddie Howe replaced him in the 78th minute.
