Squarefootball's Team of the Week - Week 32

Bookmark and Share


Arsenal took a point off title-chasing Manchester City but Liverpool were undoubtedly the biggest winners of the weekend.

Brendan Rodgers' men strolled past a feeble Tottenham to top the table following Chelsea's shock 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Everton, Manchester United, Southampton, Swansea and West Ham also recorded wins to aid their part, as West Brom and Cardiff City played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Hawthorns.

But who has made it into our Team of the Week? 

Julian Speroni (Crystal Palace)

The Palace shot stopper made two wonderful saves to deny Eden Hazard and is hoping his impressive displays can earn him a call up to Argentina's World Cup squad. He has been in fine form all season. 

Steven Caulker (Cardiff City)

The former Spurs defender has been fantastic all season and although Cardiff conceded three Caulker's vital goal to pull them level at 2-2 set up an amazing finish.

Per Mertesacker (Arsenal)

Following last weekend's 6-0 drubbing at Arsenal the last team the Gunners wanted to be facing was Manchester City. Wenger demanded a solid performance from his defence and he got it from the big German. Confident, assured and with a great reading of the game, Mertesacker snuffed out most of City's attacks. 

Joel Ward (Crystal Palace)

When you're up against Chelsea you need everyone to be on top of the game, have a foolproof plan and a bit of luck. Ward also showed that a bit of hard work and determination doesn't go a miss either. Great performance. 

Steven Naismith (Everton)

The former Rangers midfielder came off the bench at Fulham and had an immediate response. He had a huge roll to play in the opener and finished the Cottagers off with a late and well deserved third.

LallanaAdam Lallana (Southampton)

If there's one Southampton player who is definitely going to Brazil it's Lallana. The captain put in another captivating display against a lacklustre Newcastle, capped with a peach of a goal.

Jonathan De Guzman (Swansea)

The on-loan Dutch midfielder eased the Swans' relegation fears with two goals in eight minutes against Norwich City. His second goal was expertly crafted by Bony's slick backheel.

Raheem Sterling (Liverpool)

Tottenham had no answer to Sterling's pace on Sunday. He ripped Spurs apart and has surely worked his way into Roy Hodgson's plans for the World Cup. The only thing missing from his performance was a goal.

Luis Suarez (Liverpool)

The Premier League's leading goalscoring was on form again as the Reds took their destiny into their own hands. Suarez scored his 29th goal of the season and gave Kaboul and Dawson another afternoon they will want to forget. Suarez is Player of the Season for sure.

Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)

The good news for England fans is that Wayne Rooney looks to have rediscovered his scoring touch. Following his wonder strike at West Ham last weekend, Rooney netted twice in a 4-1 win over Aston Villa. 

Andy Carroll (West Ham)

Newcastle-born Andy Carroll was always going to score against the old enemy on Monday night. Carroll opened the scoring after only nine minutes and gave Brown and O'Shea a torrid time with his strength, height and awareness.

Well that's our Team of the Week. Do you agree? We'd love to hear from you.
