Its been a rollercoaster weekend of Premier League football, with Liverpool and Tottenham both dropping points in the race for the top, while Swansea, West Brom, Southampton and Stoke all picked up vital points in the battle against relegation. Here is the Premier League Team of the Week for Gameweek 24:
Lukasz Fabianski – Swansea
It was a game where it was all Liverpool apart from a five minute spell, but Lucas Fabianski had a fantastic performance, claiming and stopping everything that came his way.
Serge Aurier – Tottenham
Did well at the back, making 3 interceptions, 2 tackles and winning 75% of his duels. He also contributed well getting forward, making 3 key passes.
Chris Smalling – Man Utd
With United under the kosh at the back, Smalling was in imperious form making 13 clearances, 1 interception and winning 17 of his 20 duels against the Burnley onslaught.
Alfie Mawson – Swansea
7 clearances. 5 blocked shots. 2 interceptions. 2 tackles. 1 clean sheet. Thats not even mentioning the match winning goal to beat Liverpool, the only team who have beaten Man City all season just last week.
Nacho Monreal – Arsenal
Only played 34 minutes of football, but managed to put in a man of the match performance, making 2 clearances and 1 tackle at the back. But his real impact on the other game was at the other end, with the left back grabbing a goal and two assists!
Willian – Chelsea
Brilliant from the Brazilian who grabbed himself a goal and an assist as Chelsea beat Brighton 4-0. He constantly worked the defence, hitting the target with all of his 4 shots, while making a further 4 key passes for his teammates.
Kevin de Bruyne – Man City
The Belgian was everywhere for City against Newcastle. Making four key passes including an assist, he helped the league leaders bounce back from their defeat to Liverpool last week.
Mesut Ozil – Arsenal
Another great display from the German, making two key passes and getting one assist as Arsenal blew Crystal Palace away in a phenomenal first half in which Ozil was involved in everything.
Eden Hazard – Chelsea
2 shots, 2 goals, and a constant threat for Brighton in a man of the match performance for the Belgian.
Alexandre Lacazette – Arsenal
3 strikes, all on target, with one finding the back of the net in fine fashion. He was also involved in the Arsenal buildup on numerous occasions, making two key passes.
Sergio Aguero – Man City
6 shots, 4 on target and 3 goals…was there any way that Aguero could have been left out?
