Nick Pope (Goalkeeper- Burnley)- Pope displayed why he could be England’s number one goalkeeper. He proved that he is an asset to Burnley. He was part of the reason why they claimed all three points against Sheffield United.
Stuart Dallas (Right Back- Leeds United)- Dallas was on form for Leeds United in their match against West Brom. He provided an assist and was solid in defence as well.
Harry Maguire (Centre Back- Manchester United)- Maguire led from the front for Manchester United in a tough match against Wolves.
Ben Mee (Centre Back- Burnley)- Mee scored the only goal of the match for Burnley.
Ben Chilwell (Left Back- Chelsea)- Chilwell was probably the man of the match for Chelsea against Aston Villa. He provided the assist for Chelsea’s only goal of the match.

Harvey Barnes (Attacking Midfield- Leicester City)- Barnes of Leicester City scored the equaliser against Crystal Palace.
Marcus Rashford (Attacking Midfield- Manchester United)- Rashford scored the goal that broke the deadlock in the 93rd minute. It may prove to be a pivotal goal in the context of Manchester United’s Season, with the Table tight.
Bukayo Saka (Attacking Midfield-Arsenal)- Saka provided the assist for the only of the match for Arsenal against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Wilfried Zaha (Striker- Crystal Palace)- Zaha scored the opening goal of the match for Crystal Palace against Leicester City.
Alexandre Lacazette (Striker- Arsenal)- Lacazette scored the only goal of the game for either team. The Arsenal striker scored shortly after being brought off the bench.
Matchweek 16 Team of the Week (Final Thoughts)
In Matchweek 16, I tried to select the Premier League Team of the as accurately as possible. It was the toughest Matchweek to select a team in as there were only eight matches. There were 16 teams to select the Team from. It was tough to choose the team with Leeds United the only team to score more than one goal! They scored five. An honourable mention goes to Karl Darlow of Newcastle United who was outstanding. Another player who was unlucky was Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson, but that’s football!
