Premier League Team of the Week – Game week 30

30 down, eight to go. The title race may be all but over, but the fight for the top four and the battle against the drop is hotting up.

Here are the players who made the biggest impact in Gameweek 30 of the Premier League:

Petr Cech (Arsenal)

Made several important saves including a penalty, and the Czech became the first goalkeeper to ever make 200 Premier League clean sheets.

James Tomkins (Crystal Palace)

Despite defeats to Man Utd and Chelsea in the last week, Tomkins has put in some monumental displays at the back for Palace.

 

Eric Bailly (Man Utd)

Yeah, he scored a hilarious own goal – but considering Saturday’s crunch game against Liverpool was his first start since November, Bailly was immense. Comfortably Man Utd’s best centre back!

Alfie Mawson (Swansea)

How could there be no Swansea defender in the team of the week? The Swans played 80 minutes with 10 men, had just 20% possession and faced 30 Huddersfield shots….but came away with a clean sheet. Incredible, and Mawson was at the heart of it. Late shout for the World Cup?

 

Ashley Young (Man Utd)

Not even a natural left-back, but the Man Utd Man has the league’s joint top scorer Mo Salah in his back pocket all game.

 

 

Heung Min Son (Tottenham)

Yet another two goals for the Korean, who must be one of the most underrated players in the Premier League this season.

 

David Silva (Manchester City)

Two more goals to add to his tally as City unsurprisingly dominated Stoke

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Arsenal)

While it wasn’t a superb all round performance from the Armenian, he still finished the day with a goal and an assist. Not a bad return.

 

Kenedy (Newcastle)

The Brazilian on loan from Chelsea scored two vital goals for the Magpies as they gained a crucial three points towards Premier League safety.

 

Chris Wood (Burnley)

A long spell on the sidelines for the Burnley man was ended last week against Everton where he got on the scoresheet. He grabbed another two goals against a hapless West Ham after coming on as a second half substitute.

 

Marcus Rashford (Man Utd)

In his first start since Boxing Day, the young Mancunian returned to the starting XI with a bang, scoring two against bitter rivals Liverpool. His first strike even drew praise from Premier League legend Alan Shearer.
