The latest round of Premier League action has come to an end following an entertaining 2-2 draw between Hull City and West Ham United last night.
Manchester United secured their first win of the season in emphatic fashion and Chelsea created a small gap from their main rivals at the top of the league.
Here’s our team of the week.
GK – Julian Speroni (Crystal Palace)
Speroni was in good form against Burnley and produced one of the best penalty saves you are likely to see this season. That save ensured that Palace earned a point against a side they could be scrapping against for most of this season.
RB – Alan Hutton (Aston Villa)
Hutton produced a textbook display of full-back defending against Liverpool. He got forward well when there was space to do so and defended effectively, forcing Liverpool to move the play centrally where it was easier for the rest of the team to contain.
CB – Philippe Senderos (Aston Villa)
Senderos continues his fine start to life at Aston Villa. The Swiss defender was difficult for Liverpool to get the better of. He contained Mario Balotelli and gave himself plenty of room to guard against the pace in Liverpool’s team.
CB – Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal)
Despite the fact Arsenal conceded twice against Manchester City, the Frenchman had a very good game. He made the right decisions during spells where Arsenal were really under pressure.
LB – Marcos Rojo (Manchester United)
Rojo looked extremely fresh and bright as he started life in the Premier League. Defensively he wasn’t troubled and he looks as though he could keep Luke Shaw confined to the bench for most of this season.
CM – Ander Herrera (Manchester United)
Herrera controlled the game well against QPR. He drifted around, occupied space and pressed forward when he needed to. He also produced a superb finish for his goal in the 4-0 win.
CM – Jack Wilshere (Arsenal)
Wilshere produced the sort of performance against Manchester City that every Arsenal fan wants to see for the rest of the season. He possessed real drive and power, making it difficult for City to move high up the pitch. Great finish for his goal.
LCM – Angel Di Maria (Manchester United)
Di Maria showed just why the club spent so much money on him during the summer. Regardless of how poor QPR were, if he plays like this over the rest of the season then he’s going to trouble plenty of defences.
RCM – Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea)
Fabregas is arguably the player of the season so far. He looks so comfortable in the middle of Chelsea’s team that Diego Costa must think he’s dreaming up front in the Blues’ attack.
ST – Graziano Pelle (Southampton)
Any mistake made by the Newcastle United defence and Pelle was all over it, pouncing for an impressive brace. He looks like a very clever signing by Saints boss Ronald Koeman.
ST – Diego Costa (Chelsea)
Not the most impressive hat-trick you’re ever going to see against Swansea City, but his record of seven goals in four games is impressive. If he can maintain that throughout the season then Chelsea will be in a very good position.
