Premier League Team of the Week – Matchday 2

Neil Etheridge – Cardiff City

The only 0-0 result of the weekend, but only due to the heroics of Etheridge in the Bluebirds goal, saving a last-minute penalty as one of six saves in the match.

Kieran Trippier – Tottenham

Worked tirelessly down the right, putting in cross after cross, and topping it off with a goal.

Steve Cook – Bournemouth

Solid at the back, and popped up with what would be the winning goal.

Virgil van Dijk – Liverpool

Liverpool’s defensive rock, mopping up virtually everything that came his way, as Liverpool kept their second clean sheet of the season.

Marcos Alonso – Chelsea

An assist for the opener, before scoring the winner himself.

Theo Walcott – Everton

He might have only made 20 accurate passes in the game, but they were into dangerous areas, finishing the game with a goal and an assist as Everton picked up their first win of the season.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Arsenal

Aside from a glaring miss, Mkhitaryan was instrumental to Arsenal’s best spell of the match against Chelsea, scoring one, and setting up the other.

Gabriel Jesus – Manchester City

Formed a great partnership in Pep Guardiola’s extraordinarily attacking formation, scoring one of Manchester City’s six goals.
