Premier League Team of Week 31: The Main Man(é) Strikes Again

There were only five top flight games in England this weekend, but that’s no reason not to highlight the best performing players. Here’s our Premier League team of week 31.

Goalkeeper: Kasper Schmeichel. Burnley 1-2 Leicester.

Schmeichel only saved one shot at Turf Moor on Saturday. But he also made two punches, a high claim, and played a couple of relatively high value long passes as we can see here.  Read More

Premier League team of week 29

Premier League Team of Week 29: Rampant Romelu

Nine games to go. Manchester City have moved one point ahead. Are Liverpool bottling it, the massive frauds? No, of course not. But the champions win 1-0 when it comes to players included here. Let’s see who our algorithm selected for the Premier League team of week 29.

Goalkeeper: Neil Etheridge. Wolves 2-0 Cardiff.

Etheridge may have been beaten twice in three minutes, but he made four saves including keeping out two clear-cut chances. Read More

Premier League team of week 27

Premier League Team of Week 27: Deadly Deulofeu

The match between Manchester United and Liverpool was so devoid of quality, none of their players made the top 20 on our leader board. But algorithms are weird; players from teams which took a battering this weekend do feature in the XI, which we’ve set up as a 3-4-3. Here’s our Premier League team of week 27.

Goalkeeper: Jonas Lossl. Newcastle 2-0 Huddersfield.

The Terriers may have lost, but Lossl made ten saves so deserves his spot here.  Read More

Premier League team of week 26

Premier League Team of Week 26: Surging Aguero

Liverpool got their first league win for three matches, but Manchester City responded by battering Chelsea. Which team has more players in our XI? Here’s our Premier League team of week 26.

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris. Tottenham 3-1 Leicester City.

Spurs’ run without a draw continues, and in no small part thanks to Lloris. The Frenchman saved a penalty and two other clear-cut chances in the second half at Wembley. Read More

Glenn Murray Premier League Team of Week 24

Premier League Team of Week 24: Murray’s Mint Performance

The top two teams both dropped points, but did any players from Liverpool or Manchester City make the cut here? Here’s our Premier League team of week 24. The full leader board is available here.

Goalkeeper: Martin Dubravka. Newcastle United 2-1 Manchester City.

Dubravka only made two saves, so it may seem strange that he topped the goalkeeping chart this week. But he also won two aerial duels, more than any other Newcastle player. Read More

Premier League team of week 23 captain, Diogo Jota

Premier League Team of Week 23: Jota’s Hat-Trick Heroics

With a hat trick against Leicester, Diogo Jota was always going to make the cut, but who else is in our Premier League team of week 23? You can view the full leader board here, so let’s begin with a veteran goalkeeper who often appears in our XI.

Goalkeeper: Ben Foster. Watford 0-0 Burnley.

Foster picked up his fifth clean sheet of the season, but far more importantly his fourth team of the week cap. He was assisted in his efforts by… Read More

Premier League team of week 22

Premier League Team of Week 22: Salah days

After utilising a back three last time out, we’ve gone with a 4-4-2 this week. Here’s our Premier League team of week 22, and get set for plenty of Manchester based players.

Goalkeeper: David de Gea. Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Manchester United.

United scored first once in their 13 league games at fellow big six sides under Jose Mourinho. That was at Arsenal, and David de Gea put in a stunning performance to ensure his side won. The Spaniard repeated the trick here.  Read More
