Here’s my Premier League Team of the week! Some really tough choices this weekend.
In goal I’ve opted for Thibaut Courtois, a brilliant performance from the Belgian international and clean sheet too.
At left back I’ve had to go for James Milner again after an outstanding display. He showed determination to win the ball back and to get forward to help Liverpool in the second half after a poor start to the game against Swansea.
In the back I’ve got Tottenham pair, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen after a tough game against league leaders Manchester City. The pair were practically a brick wall in defence.
Right back I have Nathaniel Clyne. For me this man has been brilliant all season for Liverpool. He always poses a threat when getting forward with his pace and this weekend he did just that.
In a central midfield role I have Nacer Chadli. Another great game from him in the centre of the park. Helping himself to another goal. He is really holding things together in midfield for West Brom.
In attacking midfield I have Dimitri Payet and Dele Alli after a great display from both. Payet’s solo run for his goal was almost Messi like. A great finish from the Frenchman. And Alli endured a very positive game also bagging himself a goal.
And my attacking three I have Anthony Martial, Charlie Austin and Alexis Sanchez. Martial made an instant Impact off the bench scoring within minutes. Austin was unlucky not to score with several chances but has also, for me been a great player to watch so far this season. And Sanchez… well he’s just a masterclass in my opinion. He’s always a huge threat and has the ability to grab a game by the scruff of the neck.
So there we have it, a hard choice this week but I feel all played brilliantly.
Be sure to check out next weeks Team of the week!
