It was a weekend of standout individual performances across Europe, with several forwards proving decisive for their sides.

At the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, Sergio Agüero struck a hat-trick to help Manchester City defeat Arsenal 3-1; in the Bundesliga, a treble from Alfreð Finnbogason enabled Augsburg to defeat Mainz; and in La Liga, Leo Messi did his usual but the Argentine’s double was only enough for Barcelona to draw 2-2 with Valencia.

Yet it wasn’t only the frontmen who stood out, as our European team of the week highlights.
