The latest weekend of Premier League football was not one to disappoint.

For the first time in ages, Super Sunday lived up to its name, with the top four battling it out for the title on one action-packed day.

Leicester flirted with running away with it but Arsenal hit back in the nick of time, while Louis van Gaal’s troubles at Man United were only trumped by Remi Garde’s at Villa. Southampton moved into the top six, while Norwich City escapedĀ the bottom three.

But who was the hero of the weekend? And who would rather have spent Valentine’s Day sobbing uncontrollably into a box of chocolates?

Here’s who we picked as this weekend’s wasteman and worldie:

Worldie: Danny Welbeck

What a way to mark your return from injury.

Welbeck hadn’t been in an Arsenal squad since AprilĀ 2015, but made an instant impact when he returned to the field, heading in Mesut Ozil’s free kick to send the Gunners within two points of table toppers Leicester.

The internet went meme mad and Welbeck was instantly tipped for a return to the England squad, providing he doesn’t break down again.

Arsenal may have found their second wind in the title race and it’s thanks to Welbeck that Arsene Wenger can begin to dream of the Premier League again.

Wasteman: Martin Atkinson

Why do referees always have to be the centre of attention?

The clash at the Emirates was a brilliant contest up until Atkinson sent Danny Simpson off for a soft foul on Olivier Giroud, forcing Leicester to play with ten men for most of the second half.

From then on, the Foxes had to defend for their lives and came agonisingly close to stretching their lead at the top of the Premier League, as Arsenal scored a late winner.

Atkinson had a tough afternoon, awarding a penalty to Leicester in the first half after Jamie Vardy tumbled over Nacho Monreal’s leg – a controversial decision.

The cynics say Atkinson was looking for a way to level things up by showing Simpson a second yellow card, but one thing is for sure: he killed the contest and invited Arsenal back into the title race.
