Premier League Gameweek 11 Team Of The Week

GK – Ben Foster (Watford)

Even in the loss against Chelsea, Foster was the best player on the pitch for the hosts, making eight saves and setting up a tense finish at Vicarage Road.

RB – Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

Starting a league game for the first time in almost a month, Walker was the saviour for Manchester City against Southampton, setting up Sergio Aguero’s equaliser before popping up with a late, crucial winner.

CB – Steve Cook (Bournemouth)

As mediocre as United were in attack, it was Cook’s concentration and ability to marshal his troops at the back that helped Aaron Ramsdale keep a cleansheet and win his side the game.

CB – Caglar Soyuncu (Leicester City)

The Turkish defender is starting to cement his place as one of the best in the league this season. He not only frustrated the likes of Zaha and Ayew at the back, but also scored Leicester’s first in their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

LB – Andrew Robertson (Liverpool)

The Liverpool left-back scored a late equaliser at Villa Park and was a real threat for the Villa backline all game with his driving runs.

CM – John Lundstram (Sheffield United)

Playing on the right side of the midfield for Sheffield United, Lundstram put two past Nick Pope and also strangled the Burnley midfield. Was probably the best player in the league this game week.

CM – Jonjo Shelvey (Newcastle United)
