Hello and welcome to another hero of the week article, with myself Will Beesley.
This weeks Premier league action was at a spectacular standard with late goals and underdog teams giving their fans some hope in this brutal league.
Given such good performances from many players it was difficult to pick one winner this week.
But the man I have crowned this weeks “Hero of the week” is Sofiane Boufal.
Southampton vs West Brom on paper doesn’t always spring to be a great watch, but what a game this was! With Southampton shooting from all angles in all sorts of ways. They struggled to beat the West Brom keeper Ben Foster.
0-0 still at 80 minutes Southampton needed a change to get a goal at least, Boufal comes on and within minutes makes an impact!
He picks the ball up in his own half battles his way through the West Brom midfield still going strong on his own. With options to his left and right and decides to go alone with a risky choice especially this late on in the game.
With skill and pace he runs at the West Brom defenders and glides through with ease, he then has to keep his composure as there is only one more defender and the goalkeeper to beat.
Boufal keeps his head and shoots with a low but accurate shot into the bottom left corner in the 85 minute to win the game.
An unbelievable solo goal, from this I reward him with the crown of hero of the week.
