Most Chances Created: 6—Aaron Ramsey
Without meaning to pick on West Ham, the most startling creative return from Week 3 was their lack of production against Southampton.
For a home side to create just two chances in 90 minutes is awful and is unlikely to be beaten as worst creative performance of the season. The Hammers' return was tripled by this week's leader, though Ramsey's six chances for Arsenal were not enough to secure a win at Leicester.
Elsewhere, surprisingly no Manchester United player was able to create more than one chance against newly promoted Burnley.
Most Successful Dribbles: 5—Ashley Young, Steven N'Zonzi
Three games in and Eden Hazard is finally dethroned as best dribbler of the week—though perhaps Everton spent too much time trying to reduce his creative threat and forgot about the rest of the team.
Ashley Young and Steven N'Zonzi lead the way with five dribbles each, with N'Zonzi's return illustrating Stoke's willingness to play on the break and run at Manchester City.
Most Through Balls: 3 (2 successful)—Adam Johnson, Santi Cazorla
Once again, three attempts leads the way for most through balls this week. Adam Johnson and Santi Cazorla both achieved that, connecting with two, while Ramsey missed all three of his attempts.
Elsewhere, Cesc Fabregas connected with both of his through balls, as he once again pulled the strings for Chelsea as they regularly dissected Everton.
The former Arsenal man leads the way with four successful through balls this season, double that of any other Premier League player.
Most Turnovers: 7—Erik Lamela; Most Dispossessed: 6—Mark Noble
Erik Lamela shows he's still adjusting to life in England and that, as with any creative player, sometimes it just doesn't come off.
Lamela was in this article for all the right reasons last week, producing excellent creative and dribbling numbers against QPR. This week, however, it all fell apart as the Argentine recorded seven turnovers—the most of any player this season.
Mark Noble then further underlines his side's struggles against Southampton, with West Ham's chief passer dispossessed a nausiating seven times.
