LNTUP’s Team Of The Week: Premier League
This week’s Premier League was full of action and here are the best eleven of the week of Premier League.
Goalkeeper : Hugo Lloris, Tottenham
While perhaps he should have reacted quicker for Mohamed Salah’s goal, Lloris more than made up for it after. The keeper made six saves at Wembley, including a spectacular second-half stop on Philippe Coutinho, conceding just one goal from Liverpool’s seven shots on target.

Right-back: Cesar Azpilicueta, Chelsea
Cesar Azpilicueta really is Chelsea’s Mr. Dependable. The Spain international filled in at both right wing-back and left wing-back against Watford on Saturday, having previously been deployed as part of a back three under Antonio Conte. And while he was one of Chelsea’s better defenders on a day they struggled at the back, he also proved his worth in the final third, too, heading home his side’s decisive third goal to turn the game back in their favour.
Centre-back: Nicolas Otamendi, Manchester City
Manchester City’s creaky defence seems to be a thing of the past, and Nicolas Otamendi has been central to that. Having formed an ever-blossoming partnership with John Stones, Otamendi helped City to that sixth clean sheet against Burnley — second in the league to only Manchester United — and bagged a goal for himself, too. He gets the nod ahead of Mariner’s pick of Stones by virtue of having found the back of the net.
Centre-back: Maya Yoshida, Southampton
While Sofiane Boufal’s spectacular solo effort against West Brom will take all the plaudits, it was Southampton’s backline that created the platform for him to go on and net the winner. Granted, West Brom’s attack was not the sharpest St Mary’s has ever seen, but the Saints still had to be alert to any danger, and Maya Yoshida was central to their success in that department.

Left Back : Fabian Delph, Manchester City
Maybe he is the left-back answer? Delph attempted 95 passes in the victory over Burnley for City and completed an impressive 93 percent of them.
Midfield: Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City
Kevin De Bruyne is really making a habit of producing not just assists, but spectacular assists while wearing the blue of Manchester City this season. Leroy Sane can sure attest to that after De Bruyne slotted open the Burnley defence for his goal on Saturday, as City players line up to get on the end of one of his passes.

Midfield: Mesut Ozil, Arsenal
Mesut Ozil has had his fair share of critics, but when he is as effective in the final third as he was against Everton, it’s impossible to argue against his talent. An uncharacteristic header from the Germany international was followed up with a crisp assist for Alexandre Lacazette as he helped to make it a very happy 68th birthday for Arsene Wenger.
Midfield : Dele Alli, Tottenham
With Liverpool pushing for a late first-half equalizer, Alli pounced on a poor Joel Matip clearance to re-establish Spurs two-goal lead. In addition, Alli created two goal-scoring chances for his team-mates.

Midfield : Abdoulyae Docoure, Watford
Scoring Watford’s first goal, his fourth of the Premier League season, certainly helped Doucoure have a good day. But he also recovered possession more times than any other player for the Hornets (10), albeit in a 4-2 loss to Chelsea.

Striker : Harry Kane, Tottenham
Harry Kane had a day to remember in Tottenham’s 4-1 win over Liverpool. He attempted seven shots overall against Liverpool, but scored with both of his shots on target. He also added an assist.
Striker : Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal
