Hugo Lloris Makes Garth Crooks' Team Of The Week Despite Not Facing Any Shots On Target.
By PJ Browne Updated

The criteria for making Garth Crooks' BBC Sport team of the week is pretty straight forward. Generally if you score a goal you're in. As happened with six of the players this week. It's actually seven if you count Ryan Shawcross but we're nearly certain that Garth understands the difference between an OG and scoring for your own team.

If you're a goalkeeper and you keep a clean sheet you're also in with a shout. And If you're Hugo Lloris, it's even simpler than that. He is Crook's choice of goalkeeper this week, despite not facing any shots on target against Swansea.

If you get assaulted on the pitch then your chances are also elevated. As they were with Ryan Shawcross. Who appears to get in this week for being headbutted by Marouane Fellaini and not complaining by it.

The Aston Villa defence also came in for high praise with two of the "Villa back four" (Matthew Lowton and Nathan Baker) making the Crooks' selection.

This was despite Villa playing a back three and Lowton being on the right-hand side of midfield. They must've played so well in Crooks' eyes that it looked like there were more than three players back there.
