Premier League Team of the Weekend: Matchday 26


Manchester City put Chelsea to the sword, Manchester United won again and relegation six-pointers threw up some drama.

But who stood out amongst the madness?

Here is our team of the weekend.


Goalkeeper

Tom Heaton (Burnley)

Made a string of outstanding saves against Brighton, with Burnley now on their best top-flight run since 1975.


Defence

James Milner (Liverpool)

In an unfamiliar role, Milner made three tackles and provided an assist as Liverpool eased to victory over Bournemouth.

Sol Bamba (Cardiff)

Bamba scored a crucial equaliser against Southampton on Saturday but also won the most aerial duels (9) of anyone on the pitch.

Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool)

Van Dijk was imperious again for Liverpool, making six clearances and five ball recoveries against Bournemouth.

Ben Chilwell (Leicester)

Despite their defeat, Chilwell was a constant threat down the left and created three chances for his wasteful team-mates.


Midfield

Ilkay Gündogan (Manchester City)

Gündogan was at his very best against Chelsea, creating two goal-scoring chances, winning five tackles and three interceptions.

Paul Pogba (Manchester United)

Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)

Not many wingers get the best of César Azpilicueta but Sterling ran him ragged on Sunday with two goals and two assists.

Anthony Martial (Manchester United)

Martial was directly involved in two of Manchester United’s three goals against Fulham, scoring one brilliant goal and assisting another.


Forwards

Sergio Agüero (Manchester City)

Heung min-Son (Tottenham)
