As the domestic football takes a back seat this weekend, World Cup qualifying fixtures have been taking place across the globe.

Here are the top three Premier League performers of the international break so far.

Adam Lallana

Adam Lallana was England’s best player in the 3-0 win over arch-rivals Scotland at Wembley on Saturday night.

The Liverpool man scored a brilliant header to secure the win for the Three Lions and his general performance was excellent throughout.

The former Southampton star is in the form of his life and is finally beginning to add goals to an already mightily impressive arsenal of skills.

Lallana, who scored the only goal of Sam Allardyce’s ill-fated tenure, is starting to produce regularly at both domestic and international level and will surely be a key part of England’s plans in the run-up to the 2018 World Cup.

Christian Eriksen

Tottenham Hotspur fans will be hoping to see performances of a similar clinical quality from Christian Eriksen after the midfielder scored twice in Denmark’s win over Kazakhstan on Friday night.

The 24-year-old comfortably slotted home a penalty in the first half before embarking on a mazy solo run to fire home his second of the night in injury time.

Eriksen, who has been a vital player for Spurs since joining from Ajax, has looked short of confidence at times in the Premier League this season and the White Hart Lane faithful will be hoping this brace will bring the dynamic Dane back to his brilliant best.

Victor Moses

Victor Moses is a man reborn under Antonio Conte this year.

The former Wigan Athletic winger has finally found his place in the Chelsea team after numerous loan spells and that impressive form at domestic level transgressed onto the international stage on Saturday.

Nigeria ran out 3-1 winners over Algeria in their World Cup qualifier, with Moses scoring twice for the Super Eagles.

In what was an additional bonus for Conte’s team, fellow Chelsea star John Obi Mikel bagged the other goal in a convincing win for the hosts.

Moses has shown his versatility this season by operating at right wing-back for his club, a position he has taken too with astonishing capability.

After loan spells with Stoke City, Liverpool and numerous other clubs, it finally looks like the time has come for the former England youth international to realise his undoubted potential.
