Squarefootball's Team of the Week - Week 25
Does anyone really want to win the Premier League title?
This weekend Arsenal were embarrassed at Anfield and Manchester City drew a blank for the second consecutive game against Norwich City, allowing Chelsea to march to the top of the table with a 3-0 win over Newcastle.
There were also huge wins for those at the bottom trying to beat the drop. West Ham saw off Aston Villa, Swansea beat rivals Cardiff while Crystal Palace piled the pressure on West Brom.
But who has made it into our Team of the Week?
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur)
The Spurs man made a string of excellent saves in Tottenham’s victory over Everton, including an excellent stop from a Leon Osman volley.
Right Back: John Flannigan (Liverpool)
It was an excellent day for Liverpool in their 5-1 win over Arsenal, and Flannigan contributed strongly with a strong defensive mind along with quick counter-attacking.
Centre Back: Martin Skrtel (Liverpool)
It’s not often we include a centre-back due to their scoring prowess but Skrtel was on the score sheet twice for Liverpool in the game against Arsenal, as well as a near-faultless performance at the back.
Centre Back: Ashley Williams (Swansea City)
Swansea may have run out comfortable winners, but the story could’ve been a lot different if Williams hadn’t made 13 clearances to keep the first half goalless.
Left Back: Martin Olsson (Norwich City)
Norwich stunned Manchester City by holding them to a 0-0 draw this weekend, and Olsson made a series of courageous tackles and blocks to ensure that City failed to score at Carrow Road.
Right Midfield: Raheem Sterling (Liverpool)
Sterling scored two excellent goals for Liverpool and was dynamic, pacey and gave Arsenal defenders a torrid time. Should have had a hat-trick.
Centre Midfield: Kevin Nolan (West Ham)
Nolan makes our team for a second consecutive week after another brace from the West Ham captain saw the Hammers beat Aston Villa 2-0 at Villa Park.
Centre Midfield: Steve Sidwell (Fulham)
Fulham’s captain at Old Trafford led by example throughout the 2-2 draw. Sidwell opened the scoring and tirelessly pushed play forward for the Cottagers, who reaped the reward with a last minute equaliser.
Left Midfield: Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
Three brilliant goals from Hazard meant Chelsea were run-away winners in the 3-0 win over Newcastle. Hazard dominated the game and thoroughly deserved his hat-trick.
Centre Forward: Tom Ince (Crystal Palace)
A fine debut for Tom Ince in Palace’s 3-1 victory over West Brom. The former Blackpool player scored a cheeky lob just 15 minutes into his debut and ran West Brom ragged for the duration of the match.
Striker: Emmanuel Adebayor (Tottenham Hotspur)
It was a fine finish from Adebayor that was the difference between Tottenham and Everton. The two sides were evenly-matched before the Togo forward stepped up to score from a quickly taken set piece.
