Presenting The Balls.ie Premier League Team Of The Weekend

It was a riveting weekend of Premier League action, with Chelsea (surprigingly) losing at Stamford Bridge and Everton (not surprisingly) losing at Anfield. We've crunched the stats and can now present to you the Balls.ie Premier League Team of the Weekend.

GK - Jordan Pickford

 Pickford is doing everything he can do to keep Sunderland up, but it is surely not enough. Sunderland could use eleven Pickford's but we're not sure they'd be much with ten keepers playing in the field.

RB - Eric Dier

Dier was back in 'natural' position as a rightback yesterday, and wouldn't you know, he scored his first goal in ages as Spurs fought off Burnley at Turf Moor.


CB - Miguel Britos

 The Uruguayan outleaped all around him to scored his first goal in England as Watford held on for a 1-0 win over Sunderland.

CB - Andrea Ranocchia

The Italian defender got his first goal at Hull, and what a huge goal it may prove to be. Hull can still dream of promotion today. Ranocchia was left thinking of frogs.

LB - Christian Fuchs


Statistically, Fuchs was the #1 left back on the Whoscored registry in the Premier League this weekend. Another week, another Leicester cleansheet.



MF - Lucas Leiva

Lucas proved there is life after Jordan Henderson for Liverpool, with a vintage performance in the Liverpool midfield.

MF - Philipe Coutinho

Scored the decisive goal just minutes after Pennington equalised. Phil seemed back to his best, which is just what Liverpool will need with Mane injured.

MF - Wilfred Ndidi

The 20-year-old Nigerian scored the goal of the weekend. How things have changed for Leicester in a month.


MF - Wilfried Zaha

Zaha had his best game of a stellar season yesterday as Palace did what no one seemed capable of: beating Chelsea. Willian woke up in a cold sweat last night thinking about those Zaha silky skills.

F - Jamie Vardy

Safe to say that Vardy has transformed his season in the weeks after Claudio Ranieri was given his P45.

F - Christian Benteke

The first striker of the season to channel Peppa Pig but he'll take it.
