Algeria star, Liverpool’s leading pair, Manchester City’s Messi-esque midfielder: Premier League Team of the Week
English football columnist Richard Jolly names his Best XI in the Premier League for the September 16-18 weekend, including a pair of Liverpool standouts and Watford stoppers.
Heurelho Gomes, Watford
A brilliant save from Zlatan Ibrahimovic kept Watford level before they went on to record a famous win over Manchester United.
Seamus Coleman, Everton
A terrific solo goal was a highlight of Everton’s 3-1 victory over Middlesbrough and a reminder of the Irishman’s attacking verve.
Miguel Britos, Watford
A tower of strength at the back, he also won the ball in the build-up to Etienne Capoue’s opening goal against Manchester United.
Scott Dann, Crystal Palace
Showed his threat at set pieces by scoring in a third successive home game as Palace ran riot against a sorry Stoke side.
James Milner, Liverpool
Showed his versatility and resourcefulness as the stand-in left back and impressed in his new role at Stamford Bridge.
Theo Walcott, Arsenal
Scored one goal, the 100th of his career, and played a part in two more as Arsenal were emphatic winners at Hull.
Jordan Henderson, Liverpool
A brilliant long-range strike, plus a determined display in the defensive-midfield berth, made the captain key in victory at Chelsea.
Kevin de Bruyne, Manchester City
Pep Guardiola suggested only Lionel Messi is playing better than the Belgian, who was sublime against Bournemouth.
Son Heung-Min, Tottenham
A rejuvenated figure, the South Korean tormented the unfortunate Sunderland rightback Jason Denayer at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Nacer Chadli, West Brom
The Belgian showed why West Brom paid a club-record fee for him with two goals and an assist in the rout of West Ham.
Islam Slimani, Leicester
Another club-record buy, another double. Slimani opened his Leicester account with two goals in the 3-0 win over Burnley.
