Mohab Saied (L), Abdallah El-Saied (C) and Vincent Die Foneye (R)

Goalkeeper: El-Hani Soliman (Ittihad) pulled off a string of impressive saves as his side held Ismaily to a 1-1 draw. One of his best saves was thwarting an effort by Amr El-Sulaya following a one-on-one situation.

Right back: Ahmed Adel (Gouna) produced a brilliant display on the right flank for the second successive matchday. He provided the cross which helped Samuel Ocran score to give Gouna a surprise 1-1 draw with Ahly.

Central defender: Hazem Fathi (El-Entag El-Harby) looked rock-solid at the back, keeping Masry strikers at bay in a 1-1 draw.

Central defender: Beshir El-Tabie (El-Gaish) impressed against his former club Zamalek, closely marking Zamalek striker Amr Zaki in Monday’s 1-1 draw.

Left back: Hassan Gomaa (Gouna) caused constant menace to Ahly with his darting runs and curling shots. He also accomplished his defensive duties against the defending champions.

Midfielder: Samuel Ocran (Gouna) scored his side’s precious equalizer against Ahly when he held off a tame challenge from his marker to head home a right-wing cross. He also dictated play in midfield.

Midfielder: Ahmed Shokry (Beni Suef Telephones) continued his blistering start to the season with another sublime goal. His fierce long-range found the top corner of the net as Beni Suef Telephones crushed Ghazl El-Mahalla 3-0.

Midfielder: Mohab Saied (Ismaily) was his side’s sole lively performer in a dull 1-1 draw with Ittihad. He created plenty of opportunities for his teammates and won the penalty which Hosni Abd-Rabou converted.

Midfielder: Abdallah El-Saied (Ahly) set up Emad Meteb for the Red Devils’ only goal in a surprise 1-1 draw with Gouna.  

Forward: Talaat Moharram (Petrojet) scored twice to lead his side to a thrilling 3-2 win over Maqassa.

Forward: Vincent Die Foneye (ENPPI) rescued his side when he came on as a second-half substitute, scoring twice to help ENPPI come from behind and earn a 3-2 win over Dakhleya.

Substitutes: Abdel-Wahed El-Sayed (Zamalek), Samuel Kyere (Ittihad of Alexandria), Shawky El-Saied (Gouna), Adel Mostafa (ENPPI), Essam Abdel-Atti (Ittihad El-Shorta), Ernest Papa Arko (El-Gaish).
