Several players were outstanding over the weekend, but we have selected the best eleven with respect to their playing positions.
Between the posts, wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio claims that position after making three crucial saves to deny Fulham a goal and a potential point.
The defensive line consists of Nelson Semedo, Diego Llorente and Federico Fernandez. Diego Llorente was a steel wall for 90 minutes to ensure Leeds “pocketed” the unexpected three points against Manchester City. Federico Fernandez made 10 clearances, two interceptions, three blocks alongside aerial presence to thwart Burnley’s aerial threat.
The star-studded midfield comprised of Stuart Dallas, Paul Pogba, Christian Pulisic, Jesse Lingard and Kai Havertz.
Stuart Dallas scored two goals to help Leeds United win against Manchester City while Paul Pogba provided an assist alongside a terrific performance. Jesse Lingard continued his fine form to help Westham reclaim their fourth position – one point behind Leicester.
Christian Pulisic registered two goals while Kai Havertz proved his price tag with a superb goal and an assist to decorate Chelsea’s best game of the season.
The forward line wouldn’t be complete without Edinson Cavani, Alexandre Lacazette and Kelechi Iheanacho. However, Cavani and Iheanacho takes the responsibility to lead the line.
Cavani was involved in two of the three of Manchester United’s goals without mentioning that he was denied an arguably a deserved goal. On the other hand, Kelechi Iheanacho who won the premier league player of the month scored two goals but he could not salvage a point for Leicester City.
