Find out who fans voted the top players from each fixture, including Tammy Abraham, now the joint-leader in the race for the Golden Boot

Tammy Abraham's opening goal at Southampton not only sent Chelsea on their way to a third win in four matches, it also made him the joint-leader in the race for the Golden Boot.

The 22-year-old Blues striker has now scored eight times in the Premier League this season, taking him level with Manchester City's Sergio Aguero at the top of the scoring chart.

Unsurprisingly he was voted as the Budweiser King of the Match for his performance in the 4-1 win at St Mary's Stadium.

Supporters voted in their thousands on the final whistles via the official Premier League website and app for their top performers in all 10 matches.
