The weekend was full of action and incident in the sporting world.

Hours before everyone became a SuperBowl expert, the latest matchday of the Premier League threw up plenty of drama.

Leicester City took a huge step towards the most unlikely Premier League title in history, Manchester United continued their depressing limp towards the end of the season, and Newcastle United got themselves out of the relegation zone for the first time since the turn of the year.

But who was the biggest hero of the weekend? And who was the man who would rather have been on the end of a shoulder charge from a 18-stone defensive blocker than have to watch their performance back on Match Of The Day?

We’ve taken a look at who had a worldie of a weekend, and who was the wasteman.

Who else but Robert Huth?

The big German popped up with two goals at the Etihad Stadium to down Manchester City, sending Leicester five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Last season, the former Chelsea defender was on the bench at Stoke City, filling his time by playing ‘cock or no cock’ on Twitter, before being hit with a £15,000 fine and two-match ban.

This year, he’s a regular in Leicester’s unlikely title challenge and could become a Premier League champion for the third time in his career – having won it twice while at Stamford Bridge.

Ah, Simon Mignolet. As much use as a chocolate fireguard.

There’s one statistic that sums up how good the Belgian goalkeeper is perfectly – he has let in 12 out of the last 19 shots he’s faced in the Premier League this season.

He had another shocker against Sunderland this weekend, conceding two goals from Sunderland’s only two shots in the entire game, both in the final eight minutes.

It all looked under control when Liverpool went 2-0 up at Anfield but their goalie had other ideas, letting Adam Johnson’s free kick slip under his grasp, before failing to even move for Jermain Defoe’s 89th-minute equaliser.

With the equally useless Adam Bogdan as backup, it’s a case of Mignolet being the lesser of two evils as Jurgen Klopp tries to keep Liverpool’s ailing chase for a European place alive.
