A best XI of this weekend’s action.
With Chelsea and Manchester United earning impressive wins this weekend, it is not surprising to see several of their players fill the Premier League team of the weekend. Read on to see who else made the cut after the most recent action in the English top flight…
GK: David de Gea (Manchester United)
With some excellent saves to deny Leighton Baines from the penalty spot and Bryan Oviedo from long range late on, David de Gea was undoubtedly one of the best performers in the Premier League this weekend as Manchester United beat Everton 2-1 at Old Trafford.
DR: Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)
A solid display at the back for Chelsea as they beat Arsenal, Branislav Ivanovic was in top form as ever for the Blues, with the reliable Serbian looking good going forward as well as at the back.
DL: Leighton Baines (Everton)
Although he missed a penalty, Everton left-back Leighton Baines was one of his side’s top performers in their defeat to Manchester United, getting forward to great effect to claim a perfectly-weighted assist for team-mate Steven Naismith for the team’s equaliser.
