Berardi hit the target with seven of his eight efforts and his deadly display ultimately resulted in the sacking of Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri as the Rossoneri lost 4-3 to the Serie A strugglers.
Joining Berardi in attack is Luis Suarez, who scored another two goals in Liverpool’s win over Stoke.
In fact – with the Bundesliga on hiatus – there were a number of Premier League representatives, and from clubs outside the elite.
Adam Johnson had to be included after his hat-trick for Sunderland at Fulham while West Ham keeper Adrian was also recognised after making seven saves in a win over Cardiff.
Leighton Baines and David Luiz also warranted inclusion.
