Tottenham stand in Kieran Trippier named in EA Sports FIFA Team of the Week

Tottenham WHL

Leicester City and Southampton players also received the nod.

Three Premier League players have been named in the EA Sports FIFA Team of the Week thanks to their performances at the weekend.

The trio consist of Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier, Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster, and Leicester City defender Robert Huth. 

The team is made of of players around Europe's top leagues, and was publicised by EA's Twitter account. Leicester forward Jamie Vardy is among the substitutes, but there was no place for Riyad Mahrez.

For Trippier it is excellent recognition as he was simply filling in for England international Kyle Walker, and managed to score the vital winner in a 1-0 win over Watford.

The right-back has found it tough to get starts ahead of Walker, but in recent weeks whenever he has been given the opportunity he has excelled.

For Fraser Forster, who kept a clean sheet for the Saints against West Ham, it is also a nice bonus to receive such praise after being out of action for several months with a serious knee injury.

The previous week there were no Premier League players named in the XI, while the last Tottenham player to be selected was Christian Eriksen in week 19. The last Southampton player picked was Jose Fonte in week 16.
