Virgil van Dijk in for Liverpool, no room for Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne: Premier League team of the week

Liverpool maintained their winning start to the Premier League season, although they needed a big slice of luck to register a 1-0 win at Sheffield United.

While Dean Henderson's howler led to Gigi Wijnaldum's goal, Virgil van Dijk put in a colossal effort at the back with some vital interceptions to keep United at bay at Bramall Lane.

Riyad Mahrez was the creative inspiration behind Manchester City's win at Everton, though goalkeeper Ederson pulled off a couple of terrific saves in the 3-1 win at Goodison Park.

There were standout performances among some Premier League strikers. Harry Kane was on target to guide 10-man Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-1 win over Southampton while Jamie Vardy scored a brace in Leicester City's 5-0 thumping of Newcastle United.
