EPL team of the week 23 defenders
CB: Fabien Shar (Newcastle United).
Fabien Shar showed two goals in last weekend’s Premier League fixture becoming the first Newcastle defender to score two goals in a single since Philippe Albert against Manchester City in February 1996. He did so as the Magpies defeated Cardiff 3-0 on Saturday.
CB: Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal).
A clean sheet has been rare for Arsenal this season but against Chelsea on Saturday, they got one. Key to it was Captain Koscielny who also scored the second goal after Alexander Lacazette goal as the Gunners ran out 2-0 winners to re-ignite their push for a top four finish.
CB: Danilo (Man City).
Danilo scored City’s 100th goal of the season, the first in their 3-0 win away to Huddersfield on Sunday. He was also involved in the third goal.
