Matchweek 14 Team of the Week (Final Thoughts)
In Matchweek 14, I tried to select the Premier League Team of the as accurately as possible. It was the toughest Matchweek to select a team in. There were four teams out of 20 teams that kept a clean sheet. There were 16 teams who scored 34 goals. Mohamed Salah scored two goals coming off the substitutes bench. Roberto Firmino and Tammy Abraham deserve an honourable mention, but I couldn’t go past Jamie Vardy. Nick Pope was instrumental in Burnley defeating Wolves. There are only 11 players that can be selected!
