LNTUP’s Premier League Team Of The Week
Here lies the LNTUP’s Team Of The Week of Premier League.
HEURELHO GOMES (WATFORD) :
Gomes made five saves on his way to keeping a clean sheet and was a big reason Watford took the three points Sunday. Only one goalkeeper made more this weekend, Lukasz Fabianski, who had six.
KYLE WALKER (MANCHESTER CITY) :
Walker created two goalscoring chances for team-mates and completed 94% of his passes in a 2-0 win against Leicester.
SHKODRAN MUSTAFI (ARSENAL) :
Mustafi scored the winner and racked up 14 clearances against Tottenham; no player managed more in the Premier League this weekend.
RAGNAR KLAVAN (LIVERPOOL) :
Only Jordan Henderson (87) made more passes than Klavan (72) against Southampton. The defender, pressed into a start with Joel Matip injured, helped his side to the clean sheet.
ALBERTO MORENO (LIVERPOOL) :
Moreno celebrated the birth of his son by whipping in a game-high four crosses from open play and contributing to the clean sheet in a 3-0 Liverpool win over Southampton.
ABDOULAYE DOUCOURE (WATFORD) :
Doucoure registered a game-high 13 ball recoveries and was the most accurate passer of any starting player from either side (94% accuracy) in the match between Watford and West Ham.
KEVIN DE BRUYNE ( MANCHESTER CITY)
De Bruyne, who added another goal this weekend, has had a hand in 50 PL goals (16 goals, 34 assists). He has done this in 76 PL apps, the quickest by any out-and-out midfielder in the history of the competition.
JACK CORK ( BURNLEY ) :
Cork ended a run of 43 Premier League appearances without a goal by finding the back of the net against Swansea in a 2-0 victory.
MOHAMED SALAH ( LIVERPOOL ) :
With his brace against Southampton, Salah has netted nine goals in the Premier League this term; the most by any Liverpool player in their first 12 appearances in the competition.
EDEN HAZARD (CHELSEA) :
Hazard has scored in 16 Premier League matches under Antonio Conte and won every match. This weekend was no different as Hazard picked up a brace in a 4-0 win over West Brom.
CALLUM WILSON ( BOURNEMOUTH ) :
Many would have expected Harry Kane to be the first Englishman to score a hat-trick in the Premier League this season, but instead it was Wilson with his three goals against Huddersfield Town.
