Revealing The Balls.ie Premier League Team of the Weekend

Revealing The Balls.ie Premier League Team of the Weekend
By David Kent

A rollercoaster weekend of Premier League football has come to a close. We saw Mourinho getting sent off as United spluttered to another draw. Liverpool ground down David Moyes again, and there was a completely bonkers game of football in Wales. At the end of it all, Chelsea sit top of the table, one clear of Jurgen Klopp's men and Manchester City.

GK - Paul Robinson (Burnley)

Robinson hadn't played a competitive Premier League game in over four years, but you weren't able to tell that in the game against Man City. The ex-England number one made a superb flying stop from Sergio Aguero and kept the scoreline reasonable for the Clarets. Not to mention he technically got an assist on Burnley's goal.

RB - Victor Moses (Chelsea)

Second appearance in as many weeks for Moses who put in another great performance for Conte's Chelsea during their win over Spurs. A goal/assist, depending on who you ask, an 82% pass accuracy and keeping Dele Alli out of the game. Not bad for the Englishman Nigerian.

CB - Bruno Martens Indi (Stoke)

Stoke are notoriously difficult to beat at the Britannia BET365 Stadium but they're quite sticky away from home too. They ground out a 1-0 win over Watford, mainly thanks to Xherdan Shaqiri. Leading the way at the back though was Dutchman Bruno Martens Indi, clearing out anything that even came close to Troy Deeney.

CB - Gareth McAuley (West Brom)

Hull didn't have a shot at goal all throughout the opening 45 minutes. They were behind at half time thanks to McAuley's third goal of the season. The Northern Irish star is the first defender to reach three goals and has been solid all season. Your typical Tony Pulis player.

LB - Josh Tymon (Hull City)

A 17-year old, making just his second start in the Premier League? We must be mad putting him in our team?! Tymon was solid in his home debut, keeping the dangerous Matt Phillips quiet. Yes, he'll face some tougher opposition, but the signs are good for Mike Phelan.

CM - Leroy Fer (Swansea)

We're not going to lie. Not many people would've been too interested in what Leroy Fer was doing at the start of 2016. But since moving permenantly to Swansea from QPR, he's been revitalized. His MOTM performance at the Liberty in their utterly bonkers win over Palace was enough to feature here.

CM - Jordan Henderson (Liverpool)

Henderson was the key to Liverpool breaking down a surprisingly rigid Sunderland defence.  He made 133 passes (more than any other player) and 91% of those found their target. To add to that, he had the most tackles and interceptions for Klopp's men. Stevie who?

CM - Pedro (Chelsea)

While it wasn't quite as noteworthy as their clash at the end of last season, Chelsea and Spurs dished up an entertaining battle at Stamford Bridge. Pedro's 94 passes topped any other player on the pitch and his highlight was a gorgeous equalizer on the stroke of half time.

ST - Alvaro Negredo (Middlesbrough)

He ended a run of 10 games without a goal in style, grabbing two as Middlesbrough almost beat the champions. The opener was a delicious scoop, the second a bullet. His 10 aerial duels won was more than any Bournemouth player and epitomised a fantastic showing by the Spanaird.

ST - Fernando Llorente (Swansea)

He was only on the pitch twenty five minutes, but an assist and two goals cannot be ignored. Llorente was a bit of a flop before yesterday, scoring just once against Man City. His sheer force was a nightmare for a tired Palace rearguard, and the Swans reaped the reward, giving Bob Bradley his first win as boss.

ST - Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

33 goals in his last 34 Premier League appearances, and this week's curse when it comes to your Fantasy Premier League team. A third of City's shots on goal and a brace for the Argentinian as Pep Guardiola's briefly topped the table on Saturday morning.
