Squaefootball's Team of the Week - Week 38
After a season full of thrills and spills there were no final day shocks in the Premier League as Manchester City beat West Ham United to pip Liverpool to the title.
Here is our final team of the week for the 2014/15 season.
Goalkeeper: John Ruddy (Norwich)
Ruddy may not be on the plane to Brazil with England this summer but the Norwich keeper certainly made a late claim after some excellent stops in the Canaries’ 2-0 defeat to Arsenal.
Right Back: Carl Jenkinson (Arsenal)
It was the right-back’s first goal for Arsenal, and Jenkinson’s wild celebration showed what it meant for him to score for his boyhood club. The goal topped an excellent performance from the young defender.
Centre Back: Dejan Lovren (Southampton)
A candidate for the signing of the season, Lovren has been a revelation for Southampton in the centre of defence, and showed his composure again in the draw with Manchester United.
Centre Back: Vincent Kompany (Manchester City)
It was redemption for the City skipper, whose error against Liverpool could have cost his side the Premier League. But the Belgium netted City’s second against West Ham to seal the win and his side’s second title.
Left Back: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)
Azpilicueta was again at his attacking best in Chelsea’s victory at Cardiff, and was unlucky to not get on the score sheet for the Blues.
Right Midfield: Samir Nasri (Manchester City)
Undoubtedly the most influential man on the pitch at the Etihad was Frenchman Samir Nasri. The midfielder scored City’s first from distance then provided the corner which led to their second.
Centre Midfield: Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)
Imagine where Arsenal would be if this man had been fit all season? Ramsey scored a belter of a volley in the victory at Carrow Road and provided a focal point for the Gunners’ dominant display.
Centre Midfield: James McCarthy (Everton)
Also joining the first goal list this week was James McCarthy, who showed his importance to Roberto Martinez’s Everton with a fine effort and goal against Hull.
Left Midfield: Adam Lallana (Southampton)
It was another sensational outing for Lallana, in what could be his final game for the club if the rumour mill is accurate. Southampton’s captain pulled the strings in the 1-1 draw against Manchester United.
Striker: Dwight Gayle (Crystal Palace)
Two goals from Gayle in Palace’s draw with Fulham means it’s now four in two for the former Peterborough striker. Gayle has played his way into Tony Pulis’ plans and will be one to watch next season.
Striker: Romelu Lukaku (Everton)
Lukaku capped a brilliant loan spell with Everton with another goal, this time against Hull. The young Belgium has looked excellent at the Toffees, and many still question if Chelsea could have won the league had the kept Lukaku this season.
