QPR’s 2-0 win against Aston Villa last night means the latest round of Premier League action is over with the start of the League Cup ties this evening.
There were plenty of standout performances and individual battles all over the latest Premier League fixtures, making it difficult for us to select the latest Premier League team of the week.
Here it is.
GK – David De Gea (Manchester United)
We’ve gone for De Gea because while Thibaut Courtois made more saves last weekend, the Spaniard had more difficult situations to deal with; blocking a shot from an Eden Hazard one-on-one.
RB – Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)
Ivanovic had clearly worked hard with Jose Mourinho on ways to keep angel Di Maria quiet and they worked.
CB – John Terry (Chelsea)
Could do nothing about United’s goal as he was marking Marcos Rojo but was otherwise faultless at Old Trafford.
CB – James Collins (West Ham United)
Collins produced a good performance against a difficult Manchester city attack and helped his team to stay in front.
LB – Filipe Luis (Chelsea)
When Di Maria switched flanks, he was no more successful down the right with Chelsea’s Brazilian defender in good form.
RM – Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)
The Chilean took advantage of weakness and indecision in the Sunderland defence and made it count.
CM – Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United)
Kept Cesc Fabregas in his pocket throughout the game at Old Trafford. Got on the end of Di Maria’s free kick in the build up to Robin Van Persie’s equaliser.
CM – Alex Song (West Ham United)
Song was on top form against City, winning fouls and disrupting the flow and rhythm of the City midfield.
LM – Morgan Amalfitano (West Ham United)
We had to fit him into the team somewhere. He was a constant threat for City and showed versatility in terms of his position and role in the West Ham midfield.
ST – Samuel Eto’o (Everton)
Eto’o was simply too good for Burnley and his experience at the highest level showed.
ST – Wilfried Bony (Swansea City)
Bony is the perfect Premier League striker; big, strong, aggressive and he displayed his killer instinct against Leicester.
