Manchester takes over the Premier League Team of the Week following huge victories for both the red and sky blue half of the city, with no less than five players featuring in our best XI from the weekend’s action.
Another standout performance earns Swansea’s Lukas Fabianski a spot between the sticks of our Premier League Team of the Week. The Polish international made eight saves to help keep the usually prolific Spurs at bay and earn a point for his side.
Scored one of the goals of the season with a sense of effortlessness, casually blasting a volley from outside the area past an outstretched Jordan Pickford to send Manchester United on their way to a 4-0 victory over Everton.
The Argentine made a whopping 18 clearances in his no-nonsense approach to securing a precious point away from home against Spurs.
Jamaal Lascelles scored the winner for Newcastle for the second week in a row after knocking off Stoke City 2-1. Newcastle are now in 4th spot after three consecutive wins – Lascelles’ consistent form being a vital contributor to their purple patch.
Former Juventus man Mario Lemina starred in Southampton’s 1-0 victory away at Crystal Palace; he bossed the midfield with five tackles, three interceptions and three dribbles, all while keeping a passing accuracy ratio of 90.4%.
A pair of assists for the Scotsman in Newcastle’s victory over Stoke – the first being an in-swinging cross to set up Christian Atsu for a simple finish, the second being a corner delivered right onto the head of Jamaal Lascelles to take the three points.
He’s been innocuous in his Bournemouth career – failing to register a goal or assist in the entire 2016/17 campaign – but came off the bench to inspire Bournemouth to their first win of the season. Improvised with a back heel to assist for Andrew Surman and played a disguised ball to open space for the clinical Jermain Defoe for his second assist.
Manchester City’s 6-0 mauling of Watford came as a result of many fantastic individual performances, one of which was from Raheem Sterling. Terrorized a frightened Watford defence with seven dribbles, made four key passes and capped off the performance with a penalty into the top corner.
Five key passes, two assists, two tackles and a 93% passing accuracy ratio. The bald-headed heartbeat of Manchester City continues to prove why he is one of the finest playmakers in the division.
The Belgian powerhouse now has five goals in five Premier League games after scoring (and assisting) against his former club in a comfortable 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
A hint of offside in his first goal, heading from a typically precise Kevin De Bruyne cross, and then finished easily from David Silva’s square pass. Danced his way through Watford’s timid defenders to score the first hattrick of the new Premier League campaign. Got an assist for Gabriel Jesus, too. A flawless performance from the in-form Sergio Aguero.
