LNTUP’s Premier League Team Of The Week
Both Arsenal and Chelsea recorded much-needed victories, while the likes of Fernandinho and David Silva kept up Man City’s imperious start.
Joe Hart (West Ham) :
After such a tough start to life back in the Premier League Hart looks like he is finally finding his feet – or should we say, his gloves. The shot-stopper made seven saves against Crystal Palace in West Ham’s 2-2 draw; two more than any other keeper in matchday 10.

Joe Gomez(Liverpool): A clean sheet was a welcome treat for Jurgen Klopp’s charges after no end of trouble at the back in recent weeks, with their right-back one of the stars of the show. As well as keeping out Huddersfield, Gomez had 125 touches, made 102 passes and made two interceptions.

David Luiz (Chelsea) :
A starring performance from the Brazil international in a key game for the Blues. David Luiz helped Chelsea to a win and a clean sheet against Bournemouth; no Chelsea player had more clearances (3) or interceptions (3).
And what a first season back he had! 🏆 pic.twitter.com/OvQcFkTYGr

Sead Kolasinac (Arsenal) :
A force to be reckoned with at both ends of the pitch. Kolasinac has had a hand in more goals in all comps for Arsenal this season than any other player (3 goals, 3 assists) – grabbing a goal and assist against Swansea.

Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) :
Alongside Kolasinac, one of the stars of the show for the Gunners this weekend. Ramsey controlled the midfield in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Swansea; scoring the winner in the 58th minute, along with the most tackles for the Gunners (3).

Ferdandinho (Manchester City) :
His goal may have been a little fortuitous, but it was nothing less than he deserved. Fernandinho set up the opener in Man City’s 3-2 victory against West Brom, scoring himself just five minutes after providing that assist.

David Silva ( Manchester City) :
Another imperious showing from City’s Spain star. David Silva put in an all-round performance against the Baggies; no Man City player made more tackles (3), created more chances (2) or had more shots on target (2).

Demarai Gray(Leicester City) :
Demarai Gray was instrumental in both Leicester’s goals in their 2-0 win over Everton, starting the attack for the first and scoring the second himself.
That, from Demarai Gray, is exactly what Everton lack.
He forces Davies and Gueye into bad decisions. Dribblers are difference-makers.

Andre Ayew (West Ham) :
After scoring two goals midweek against Tottenham, Andre Ayew found the net in the Premier League against Crystal Palace. Only Andros Townsend (5) was fouled more times than the Ghanaian (4).

Eden Hazard (Chelsea) :
Along with scoring the only goal of the game, Eden Hazard created seven chances for his teammates; two more than any other player in matchday 10.
