Players of the week

Premier League: Son Heung-Min (£5.0m)

The South Korean has been an unsung hero at Spurs this season, shadowed by the performances of Harry Kane, but he scored for the fifth consecutive home game as Mauricio Pochettino's side eased past Everton 4-0.

Son, who is classified as a striker, scored and added two key contributions, totalling 13 TFF points for the week.

Championship: Callum Paterson (£3.2m)

Defenders continue to rule the roost in the Championship and Week 23 belonged to Cardiff's Callum Paterson. He scored twice and earned a full clean sheet as The Bluebirds ended a run of four consecutive league defeats with victory over Sunderland.
