Matchweek 20 Team of the Week (Final Thoughts)

In Matchweek 20, I tried my best to select the Premier League Team of the as accurately as possible. All 20 teams played one match. It was tough to choose the team with plenty of goals and attacking football being played. Contrastingly there were two scoreless draws. It was tough to leave players out of the team, but that’s football.
