Another round of Premier League action has been and gone with some great results to mull over from the weekend.
Chelsea went goal crazy as they created a gap from Manchester City, who lost at home to Stoke. Manchester United are still hunting their first Premier League win of the season and Liverpool secured an impressive result away at Spurs.
Here’s our team of the week based on the latest action.
GK – Asmir Begovic (Stoke City)
Begovic was in great form as he helped Stoke protect their narrow lead at Manchester City. He made the right decisions at the right times.
RB – Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)
Ivanovic continues to look settled and confident playing down Chelsea’s right hand side. He had a decent game against Everton despite the Blues conceding three goals.
CB – Jason Shackell (Burnley)
The Burnley defender deserves to be in the team because he fought hard against some talented Manchester United players to ensure Sean Dyche’s men secured a point.
CB – Dejan Lovren (Liverpool)
Lovren ensured that Martin Skrtel wasn’t missed as Liverpool secured a big and impressive win away at White Hart Lane.
LB – Alberto Moreno (Liverpool)
Moreno also makes the team of the week for a fine performance against Spurs. His goal was one of the best finishes from the weekend’s games.
RM – Jason Puncheon (Crystal Palace)
Puncheon was one of Palace’s most dangerous players in a 3-3 draw against Newcastle United. Neil Warnock seems to have forgiven him for his previous comments over his integrity.
CM – Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea)
The Spanish midfielder is becoming a regular in our team of the week feature. He was once again at the top of his game against Everton.
CM – Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton)
Schneiderlin has to be praised for keeping his focus and energy on Southampton. He ran the game against West Ham and bagged a brace.
LM – Wayne Routledge (Swansea City)
A constant threat in the 3-0 win against West Brom. He showcased several positive elements to his game such as pace and control of the ball while utilising that pace.
ST – Raheem Sterling (Liverpool)
Not a straight up striker but we had to fit him in somewhere. He played superbly against Spurs and they couldn’t handle his pace.
ST – Diego Costa (Chelsea)
Bagged a brace against Everton to make it four goals in three games. He’s starting to look like a potential golden boot winner.
