Premier League Team of the Week – Gameweek 3

Here we take a look at the best XI of the gameweek.
Premier League Team of the Week
Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur) (GK)
The French World Cup winner was in fine form against the Red Devils, keeping the likes of Lukaku and Lingard at bay.
Andrew Robertson (Liverpool) (LB)
The Scot seems to be getting better and better each time he steps onto the field in a Liverpool jersey. A gem of a left-back.
Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool) (CB)
It was another flawless and commanding performance from the Dutchman. Not once was he beaten in the air or on the ground.
Harry Maguire (Leicester City) (CB)
The England defender showed why he is one of the most sought-after defenders with a dominant performance at the back that saw him score a goal too.
Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur) (RB)
The right-back’s set-piece and deliveries were once again peripheral to Tottenham’s attack. Trippier picked up the assist for Kane’s goal as well.
Andre Schurrle (Fulham) (LM)
The former Chelsea man was in devastating form against Burnley. He picked up his first goal of the season with a fine finish.
Jean Michael Seri (Fulham) (CM)
Seri justified his hefty price tag with a sublime long-range goal and brilliant distribution in the middle of the park.
Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur) (CM)
Alli was a thorn in Manchester United’s defence. He came close to scoring on a couple of occasions as well.
Luciano Vietto (Fulham) (RM)
The attacker made his first start for the club and picked up two solid assists on the night.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham) (ST)
Mitrovic was in a happy mood against the Clarets. The former Newcastle United man picked up a brace and came close to a hat-trick.
Lucas Moura (Tottenham Hotspur) (ST)
The Brazilian seems like a new signing for the club. He terrorised the Manchester United defence and scored two well-taken goals.
