Matchweek 9 Team of the Week (In a Nutshell)
I only predicted two players who were selected by me in the Matchweek 9 Team of the Week!
Goalkeeper: Sam Johnstone (West Bromwich Albion)
Right Back: James Milner (Liverpool)
Centre Back: Aaron Cresswell (West Ham)
Centre Back: Eric Dier (Tottenham)
Left Back: Andrew Robertson (Liverpool)
Centre Midfield: Jack Grealish (Aston Villa)
Centre Midfield: Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)
Centre Midfield: N’Golo Kanté (Chelsea)
Striker: Diogo Jota (Liverpool)
Striker: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)
Striker: Danny Welbeck (Brighton and Hove Albion)
Sam Johnstone made an impressive six saves for West Bromwich Albion against Manchester United. The goal he conceded was from the penalty spot.
James Milner played well, in a position that he doesn’t normally play in; right back. He was Captain, leading from the front, even providing an assist!
Aaron Cresswell was probably the man of the match against Sheffield United, with West Ham winning 1-nil.
Eric Dier had a fantastic game for Tottenham, as he was part of the reason why they kept a clean sheet against Manchester City as he was a pivotal part of Tottenham’s back four.
Andrew Robertson provided an assist for the all important 2nd goal scored just before half time, against Leicester City.
Jack Grealish was probably the man of the match even though Brighton and Hove Albion won the game against Aston Villa, 2-1. He never stopped endeavouring to get Aston Villa at least a point out of the game.
Bruno Fernandes was the man of the match. He played extremely for Manchester United and was rewarded with a goal from the penalty spot, which meant that they just defeated West Bromwich Albion 1-nil!
N’Golo Kanté helped Chelsea win the game against Newcastle United. He showed why he should be renowned as one of the best central midfielders in the world.
Diogo Jota scored the all important 2nd goal of the game for Liverpool against Leicester City, which occurred just prior to half time.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin was probably the difference between the two teams, with Everton narrowly defeating Fulham 3-2.
Danny Welbeck scored the opening goal of the game and looked dangerous throughout for Brighton and Hove Albion, in a narrow win over Aston Villa.
Matchweek 9 Team of the Week (Final Thoughts)
I tried to select the Premier League Team of the Week in Matchweek 9 as precisely as conceivable. It was a tough Matchweek to select a team in, as there were eight out of 20 teams that kept a clean sheet. The 20 goals were scored by a total of 12 teams. It was the most challenging Matchweek to select a team in, but that was a part of it!
