Premier League Team Of The Week: Dominated By Liverpool Stars
The English Premier League was there to entertain one and all this weekend. Teams around the country were busy fighting for three crucial points to consolidate their place in the points table in the last round.
Game Week 27 of the Premier League had some exciting matchups between teams at different ends of the table.
Chelsea managed to get the better of West Ham in a late Monday night kick-off after Liverpool put Arsenal to the sword.
Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City also picked up maximum points but Manchester United were held by the Cherries at home in this round.
There were some super individual performances all around the league with some of the star players, continuing their form this season.
With the game week done and dusted, here is the Team of the Week for the fixtures this weekend:
Artur Boruc (AFC Bournemouth):
Made a number of point blank saves along with putting out Zlatan’s penalty to win the match for a 10-man Bournemouth at the Old Trafford.
Joel Matip (Liverpool):
Keeping up with the likes of Giroud, Welbeck and Sanchez, the Cameroon star put in a solid performance to help Liverpool to a victory over Arsenal.
Mamadou Sakho (Crystal Palace):
The on-loan defender from Liverpool, Sakho helped Palace to their second consecutive clean sheet in the victory over the Baggies this weekend.
Aleksandar Kolarov (Manchester City):
Coming back to form after a long time, Kolarov played as a centre-back in this game and put in a commanding performance in the 2-0 victory over Sunderland.
Tom Carroll (Swansea):
Just as it looked like the referee gifted Burnley all three points, Tom Carroll, who was exceptional all night, came up with a superb cross for the winner, giving Swansea three crucial points over Burnley.
Luka Milivojevic (Crystal Palace):
Created a number of chances but more important sat back and soaked up the pressure in Palace’s much-needed win over West Brom at the Hawthorns.
Nathan Redmond (Southampton):
Getting past his man in almost everyone on one situation, Redmond was superb in the thrilling 4-3 win over Watford this weekend to find a place in this team.
Adam Lallana (Liverpool):
The man of the match for Liverpool’s victory over Arsenal, Lallana was full of energy right until the final whistle as he ran the midfield for his side on a comfortable night.
Sadio Mane (Liverpool):
The Senegalese winger has a nag of scoring against the big clubs and he added one to his name against Arsenal to back up the brace against Tottenham not so long ago.
Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur):
The Spurs star was unlucky not to complete a hat-trick but he was a bagful for Everton to manage in the 3-2 victory at the White Hart Lane.
Jamie Vardy (Leicester City):
Finding some form in the previous game against Liverpool, Vardy was back to his best, and though did not score a goal, was the most dangerous man on the pitch.
Here is how they lineup (3-5-2):
