Team of the Week following Game-week Six
After yet another thrilling weekend in the Premier League, it’s time for SillySeason to give their Team of the Week.
The weekend of action got underway in controversial fashion during Saturday’s lunch-time kick-off, which saw Chelsea beat London rivals Arsenal 2-0.
The 3pm kick-offs also provided some great excitement, with Watford dumping more misery onto Steve McClaren‘s Newcastle United, and Claudio Ranieri‘s Leicester City came from 2-0 down once again to pick up a point at Stoke City.
In the late kick-off, West Ham United continued to shock the giants of the Premier League as they beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium.
Sunday’s games saw wins for Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, while Liverpool were held to a point at home to Norwich City.
So who stood out for their performances this weekend?
Here is SillySeason’s Team of the Week
Goalkeeper – David de Gea – Manchester United
Would it be cliche to say this was signing of the summer?
Keeping David de Gea could be massive for Manchester United, and getting him to sign a four-year deal is even better.
The Spaniard was on top form yet again against Southampton and made two world-class saves to deny Graziano Pello and Sadio Mane.
Real Madrid will still be gutted they missed out on this guy, but as for United, he could once again be vital for them throughout the campaign.
