HT’s EPL team of the week.football Updated: Oct 06, 2015 14:39 IST
Heurelho Gomes (Watford): Making five saves against Bournemouth, Gomes was arguably the busiest goalkeeper of the weekend. He also saved a penalty in the 85th minute to ensure that his team went home with three points.
Jeff Schlupp (Leicester City): Leicester City weren’t able to maintain a clean sheet but Schlupp made sure his team got all three points as his first half goal proved to be the match winner.
Glen Johnson (Stoke City): Not only did Johnson help his side keep a clean sheet, he also put in a commendable attacking performance as he assisted Marko Arnautovic to score the only goal of the game.
Hector Bellerin (Arsenal): Apart from making sure Manchester United’s wingers could not get a clear sniff of their goal, Bellerin also cemented his reputation as a valuable attacking full back in his side’s 3-0 victory.
Scott Dann (Crystal Palace): Dann put in a resolute performance that kept West Bromwich Albion’s attackers at bay to help Crystal Palace keep two consecutive clean sheets in the league.
Mesut Ozil (Arsenal): Ozil played a direct role in two of Arsenal’s three goals on the weekend. He scored one and assisted one to cap of a brilliant performance against Manchester United.
Kevin de Bryune (Manchester City): De Bruyne has been putting in excellent shifts whenever he takes the field which probably justifies City paying a club record fee for him. He assisted two of Sergio Aguero’s goals and scored with a fantastic volley.
Christian Eriksen (Tottenham): The Danish midfielder, who had caught Johan Cruyff’s eye as a youngster, proved himself to be a dead ball specialist once again. He scored two free-kicks to level the game twice against Swansea City.
Sergio Aguero (Manchester City): A thumping five-goal display puts Aguero on the top of the charts as far as performances of the weekend go. What’s more astonishing is manager Manuel Pellegrini stating the striker has carrying a minor muscle strain when he scored the goals.
Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal): With two early goals against Manchester United, Sanchez assured his side of three points and put his critics to rest over substandard performances in the last few weeks.
Graziano Pelle (Southampton): Pelle was able to outmuscle, outpace and generally outclass the Chelsea defence as he led Southampton’s attacking line to assist two goals and score his fifth of the season.
