English Premier League Team Of The Week – No Man U Or Chelsea Player Made The List



The New Year ushered us into matchday 17 of the English Premier League. While other leagues were on the festival break, the EPL was still on to give excitement to its fans.

Westham United became the first winner of 2021 with a hard-fought victory over Everton away from home thanks to a lone goal from Tomas Soucek.

Manchester United’s good run of form in the league continued with a victory which puts them level on points with Liverpool with a game in hand.

As for Frank Lampard and Chelsea, their woes continued after a shambolic display at home which saw City run riot on them.

It wasn’t a good way to start the year for Jurgen Klopp as Southampton shocked defending champions Liverpool.

There was also flawless wins for Arsenal, Tottenham, and Leicester City as the race for glory continues in the second half of the season.

At the end of matchday 17, this is how the EPL standings look like.

Let’s now take a look at the most impressive players from week 17 based on their performances.

Goalkeeper: Vicente Guaita (Crystal Palace)

Defenders: Kieran Tierney (Arsenal), Toby Alderweireld (Tottenham) & Aaron Cresswell

Midfielders: Phil Foden (Manchester City), Heung-Min Son (Tottenham), Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), Tomas Soucek (Westham) & Leandro Trossard (Brighton & Hove Albion)

Strikers: Alexander Lacazette (Arsenal) & Harry Kane (Tottenham)

So, there you have it, a 3-5-2 formation of the best performers of the week.

No Manchester United player made the list despite a win against Aston Villa, and Chelsea excluded after a disgraceful defeat at home.

Manchester City, Tottenham & Arsenal players dominate the list instead

Who was the best performer of the week for you?
