Manchester United, Manchester City, Bournemouth, Southampton and Leicester City players also feature.

Former West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has picked two Newcastle United players in his Premier League Team of the Week for The Telegraph.

Defender Fabricio Coloccini and midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum both find themselves in the team.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, Manchester City pair Pablo Zabaleta and Sergio Aguero, Tottenham duo Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen, Bournemouth’s Charlie Daniels and Benik Afobe, and Daniel Drinkwater of Leicester City are all part of the team.

Fabricio Coloccini

Coloccini has not been at his best this season, but the Argentine central defender was very good against West Ham United at the weekend.

The former Deportivo La Coruna star started the Premier League game at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon and played for the entire 90 minutes.

The 33-year-old had a pass accuracy of 84%, won 67% of his tackles, and made three interceptions, four clearances and one block.

Georginio Wijnaldum

Wijnaldum has been arguably the best player for Newcastle so far this season and was superb in the 2-1 win against the Hammers.

The Netherlands international midfielder scored a goal, had a pass accuracy of 93%, created five chances, and attempted six dribbles.

Harry Redknapp’s Premier League Team of the Week: David de Gea, Pablo Zabaleta, Toby Alderweireld, Fabricio Coloccini, Charlie Daniels, James Ward-Prowse, Daniel Drinkwater, Christian Eriksen, Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Aguero, Benik Afobe
