Goalkeeper

Nick Pope (Goalkeeper- Burnley)- Pope was the reason why Burnley won against Arsenal. He made six saves to deny the opposition from hitting the back of the back of the net. It was a much needed three points that means Burnley are outside the relegation zone, for now.

Defenders

Kyle Walker (Right Back- Manchester City)- Walker made many a marauding run forward. His performance was outstanding as per usual. He helped Manchester City keep a clean sheet as well.
Harry Maguire (Centre Back- Manchester United)– Maguire was a big reason why Manchester United kept a clean sheet in the Manchester derby.
Jannik Vestergaard (Centre Back- Southampton)- Vestergaard was a pivotal part of Southampton not allowing Sheffield United to have any shots on target.
Aaron Cresswell (Left Back- West Ham)- Cresswell was a pivotal part of West Ham winning the game against Leeds United.

Midfielders

Thomas Soucek (Defensive Midfield- West Ham)- Soucek scored the opening goal of the match to give West Ham the lead.
Mateusz Klich (Centre Midfield- Leeds United)- Klich scored the opening goal in the 6th minute for Leeds United
Gylfi Sigurdsson (Centre Midfield- Everton)- Sigurdsson of Everton showed composure to score the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.
James Maddison (Attacking Midfield- Leicester City)- Maddison scored a brace, which was helped Leicester City beat Brighton and Hove Albion comfortably.

Strikers

Jamie Vardy (Striker- Leicester City)- Vardy scored a goal and provided two assists.
Harry Kane (Striker- Tottenham)- Kane broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute.

Matchweek 12 Team of the Week (Final Thoughts)

Matchweek 12 was a tough week to select My Team of the Week. I tried to select the Premier League Team of the Week in Matchweek 12 as accurately as possible. It was a tough Matchweek to select a team in, as there were seven out of 20 teams that kept a clean sheet. The 19 goals were scored by a total of 13 teams. In four out of seven games, the losing team had more possession than their opponents!
