The Barclays Premier League table has already started taking shape and the teams have settled into the new season.
The seventh game week of the league fixtures was played this weekend. Most of the games were exciting and there were also some extraordinary performances in the mix.
Let’s take a look at the team of the week:
David de Gea (Manchester United): The United shot-stopper was once again in excellent form as he pulled out three saves from the top drawer. He didn’t let Sunderland score on the day and kept a much-needed clean sheet.
Hector Bellerin (Arsenal): The young Spaniard was brilliant against Leicester and also assisted one goal.
Virgil van Dijk (Southampton): A solid presence in defense for the Saints, the Dutchman scored his first goal for the club. He made sure that the likes of Gomis were put under pressure giving them a hard them.
Brede Hangeland (Crystal Palace): Hangeland produced a fine display at the back for Crystal Palace who beat Watford. He was at the right place at the right time to deny the Watford attackers and kept a clean sheet, only the second in the week.
Nacho Monreal (Arsenal): The Arsenal defender just tore the Leicester attack apart as he never gave them a sniff at the goal. He was excellent with his defensive duties and also helped Arsenal set up attacks from the back.
Eric Lamela (Tottenham Hotspur): Lamela who was secured for whooping £30 million by Tottenham two years ago from AS Roma, showed his worth against Manchester City. He gave the city defense a hard time and set up attacks from the mid-field. Scored a goal which made sure that Spurs come out with all three points.
James Milner (Liverpool): Full of energy, James Milner opened Liverpool’s account with a low drive from his left foot. Also assisted Sturridge and stuck to his duties on either side of the field.
Santi Cazorla (Arsenal): The Spaniard controlled the tempo of the game in the midfield against Leicester. He was pinpoint with his distribution and also provided an assist for Theo Walcott’s goal.
Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal): The Player of the Weekend, Alexis Sanchez was sublime with his touch and his passing. His vision and skill combined with Arsenal’s passing set up his first hat trick in Arsenal colors. He gave the team a much-needed victory and lifted the pressure off the Arsenal manager.
Romelu Lukaku (Everton): The Belgian impressed once again in a complete performance against West Brom. He was at the heart of everything and made it happen for Everton. Scored twice and assisted the last on the night giving his team all three points.
Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool): Showed exactly what Liverpool were missing during his injury. Scored a sublime goal with his the outside of his left foot and should have had a hat-trick to his name. Played some intricate passing with Milner and Coutinho and gave the Villa defense a big headache.
