Premier League Team of the Week – Matchweek 4

Alex McCarthy – Southampton

Having been called up into the England squad earlier this week, McCarthy made a number of saves to maintain a clean sheet against Crystal Palace to help the Saints to big three points.

Cedric Soares – Southampton

You wait forever for a Southampton player to make The Football Faithful team of the week, and two come along at once. The Portuguese right-back had a good game going both forwards and back, even bagging himself an assist.

Craig Cathcart – Watford

Unlike Southampton, Watford players have been getting plenty of praise after their 100% start to the season, although many thought that record would come to an end against Tottenham this weekend. Despite going a goal down though, the Hornets came from behind to grab a famous victory, with Cathcart scoring the winner, while also keeping the likes of Kane, Alli and Lucas quiet at the other end.

David Luiz – Chelsea

Showed that he could get stuck in at the back, winning 6/9 duels, while also being heavily involved in Chelsea’s build-up play, completing an impressive 87 passes as the Blues beat Bournemouth 2-0.

Marcos Alonso – Chelsea

Another good performance from ‘the best left-back in Europe‘, grabbing another assist and always being willing to bomb on down the left.

Joao Moutinho – Wolves

A creative force for the Premier League newcomers, creating plenty of chances as Wolves condemned West Ham to their fourth successive defeat.

Philip Billing – Huddersfield

Didn’t see a great deal of the ball, but put himself about the pitch, winning 11/16 duels, making 3 interceptions and winning 4 tackles…not to mention scoring the opening goal.

Sadio Mane – Liverpool

Grabbed yet another goal in what has been a sensational start to the season.

Eden Hazard – Chelsea

Left Chelsea fans purring over his performance once again, scoring a goal while being involved in all of Chelsea’s best-attacking play.

Romelu Lukaku – Manchester United

Scored two, should have been more, but the Big Belgian was on fire against Burnley.

Alexandre Lacazette – Arsenal

Offered his first start in the Premier League this season and didn’t let it go to waste, scoring a goal and providing an assist as Unai Emery’s men edged past a spirited Cardiff side 3-2 in South Wales.
