Premier League Team of Week 25

Premier League Team of Week 25: Garden of Eden

Manchester City made ground up on Liverpool where it counts – they have one player included here while the Reds have none. Here’s our Premier League team of week 25.

Goalkeeper: Alex McCarthy. Burnley 1-1 Southampton.

McCarthy was a busy boy at Turf Moor, to the extent that he topped our defence rankings for the week. His efforts earned him his third team of the week cap of the season.

Right-back: Cesar Azpilicueta. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield.

Dave defended as well as ever, but his penalty win was his main points-scoring contribution at the Bridge.

Centre-back: Laurent Koscielny. Manchester City 3-1 Arsenal.

Koscielny was the top off-ball performer in our team this week, and he scored a goal too.

Centre-back: David Luiz. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield.

Defenders who score usually take a slot in our weekly team. Here’s Luiz.

Left-back: Matt Targett. Burnley 1-1 Southampton.

Our second Saint of the week. A flick of the ‘only important actions’ button gives a better indication of the work Targett put in on his flank.

Midfield: Andre Gomes. Everton 1-3 Wolves.

Gomes got his first Everton goal, but that wasn’t much else for the Toffees to celebrate on Saturday.

Midfield: Leander Dendoncker. Everton 1-3 Wolves.

Dendoncker topped the match charts for ball recoveries and tackles. Scoring Wolves’ third goal wasn’t a bad contribution either.

Midfield: Christian Eriksen. Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Newcastle United.

Eriksen would’ve got fewer points for a goal than he picked up for his two high value misses against the Magpies.

Forward: Sergio Aguero. Manchester City 3-1 Arsenal.

Aguero doesn’t usually play as a wide forward, but we couldn’t leave out a hat-trick hero. Plus at least by playing here he’d have been in the right place for those back post tap ins.

Forward: Gonzalo Higuain. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield.

If you want to get a goal for your new club, a home match with the Terriers is exactly what you need.

Forward: Eden Hazard. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield.

Four thousand point performances are rare, but Hazard delivered one without playing the full match. It’s also uncommon to see so many important dribbles on a dashboard. Look at them all, bask in their glory.
