EPL Team of the Week


With it being an FA Cup weekend there were no points on effort this season, however, following the form is still important as the season heats up. Here were the weekend’s top performers!

Willy Caballero, Chelsea

The 36-year-old goalkeeper has acted as an excellent understudy for Thibaut Courtois in recent weeks, with him delivering some sturdy performances across the League Cup, FA Cup and Premier League.

The Argentine kept a clean sheet against Newcastle United as he continued his good run of form.

Vincent Kompany, Manchester City

The City back line always looks a far more formidable proposition when the 31-year old is playing and they rarely looked challenged when facing Championship side Cardiff City.

The Belgian international, now in his tenth year at the club, will be hoping he can remain fit for the season’s run in as they continue to compete on four fronts.

Jack Stephens, Southampton

Stephens scored the only goal in his side’s 1-0 victory over Watford at St Mary’s.

The 24-year-old has grown in stature at the club, having waited patiently for opportunities. Whilst the club’s league form may not be ideal, there are few better people to learn the trade from than two-time La Liga winning centre back Mauricio Pellegrino.

Liam Rosenior, Brighton and Hove Albion

33-year-old Rosenior may be a senior member of the Brighton squad but his importance has not been diminished by age and he played a valuable role in their 1-0 win over Championship side Middlesbrough.

In a side that requires experience and confidence if they are to avoid the drop, he could play a huge role in extending their Premier League stay.

Marcos Alonso, Chelsea

The Spaniard has grown into a significant goal scoring threat for the 2016/17 champions and netted a sumptuous free kick against Premier League rivals Newcastle United.

As a player that qualifies as a defender in game, despite being a sizeable attacking outlet for the Blues, the 27-year-old is a serious fantasy football point scorer with 81 to his name already this season.

Grzegorz Krychowiak, West Bromwich Albion

The 27-year-old has been somewhat hit and miss during his loan spell from French giants Paris Saint-Germain but he was at his very best during his side’s visit to Anfield.

The Polish international bullied the Liverpool midfield in their surprise 3-2 win as the Baggies piled the pressure on Klopp’s misfiring Reds.

Wilfred Ndidi, Leicester City

Despite being just 21 years old, the Nigerian central midfielder has grown into a pivotal member of the Foxes midfield during his 12 months at the club.

The midfielder netted a rare goal in his side’s 5-1 victory over Peterborough and will be hoping he can add this asset to his game.

Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City

His innovated free kick, put under the Cardiff wall, put the Premier League leaders in the driving seat early on.

With 65 points on the board already, the Belgian has continued to prove his credentials as one of the best playmakers across European football.

Raheem Sterling, Manchester City

Raheem Sterling has put any doubts regarding his abilities as a goal scorer to rest this season, grabbing a phenomenal 18 goals from 22 appearances thus far this season.

The 23-year-old has truly come into his own during 2017-18 and he will be hoping his exceptional goal scoring record can be taken into the World Cup this summer.

Kelechi Iheanacho, Leicester City

Iheanacho has struggled in the league since joining from Manchester City but the Nigerian was on good form in the cup, grabbing two goals against lower league Peterborough.

The 21-year-old will be hoping that he can use the tournament as a platform to prove to new manager Claude Puel that he is the man to lead the line the on a regular basis.

Jay Rodriguez, West Bromwich Albion

The 28-year-old has had a rotten run of luck due to injuries and the move to West Brom was one made out of necessity as he’s sort to restart his career.

The one time England international showed what he could do when at his sparkling best at Anfield, scoring two and falling just short of a third when Joel Matip diverted into his own net just ahead of him.

With West Brom in the relegation zone, Rodriquez’s form could be a huge factor their efforts to avoid the drop.
