Matchweek 15 Team of the Week (Final Thoughts)
In Matchweek 15, I tried to select the Premier League Team of the as accurately as possible. There were six teams out of 20 teams that kept a clean sheet. There were 14 teams who scored 23 goals. There was some good football played and a few unlucky players not to be chosen in the Matchweek Team of the Week. The likes of Romain Saïss as well as Pedro Neto Bukayo Saka were unlucky to miss out. I had to fit the Team into the 4-4-2 formation, which was challenging!
