We look back at the tenth week of the Premier League season, including Team of the Week with SofaScore.
Our Football Insider Graeme Bailey picks out his top performances from the week, in conjunction with SofaScore who present the Team of the Week.
Performance of the Week – Newcastle United
Not many people saw this one come, but Newcastle winning in London against West Ham was a brilliant performance from Steve Bruce’s men
Player of the Week – John Lundstram
The midfielder broke into the box to fire home twice and help his side to a convincing win – top performance from The Blades midfield star
Goal of the Week – Jamie Vardy
A brilliant footballing move as Demarai Gray dummied the ball for Vardy and then played a one-two with the former England front-man lashing the ball home – wonderful stuff from Brendan Rodgers’s men
Save of the Week – Kepa Arrizabalaga
A wonderful last-minute stop from the Spaniard as Watford pushed for an equaliser at home to Chelsea, but they were denied by the Blues number one
Pass of the Week – Lys Mousset
The wonderful touch from the French forward as he flicked the ball around the corner for Lundstram to hammer home
Team of the Week – Week 11
Graeme’s Final Thought of the Week – Feel for Son…
We witnessed a hugely upsetting injury to Andre Gomes in the game between Everton and Tottenham. Heung-min Son was red carded for clearly a challenge which was not meant to hurt anyone. Common-sense says this should be rescinded given how upset the South Korean was.
The Premier League we hope will see sense, but as with the comical VAR which continues to be used in absurd fashion, we think they will just stick to it and ignore the obvious.
