Premier League team of the weekend: Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Everton stars included

first_img 11 11 11 Centre-back: Ramiro Funes Mori (Everton) – Coming up against the hardworking Danny Ings and the spritely Daniel Sturridge in only his second Premier League start will have been daunting for the Argentine, who had a shaky full debut against West Brom last week. He came through excellently though, winning six aerial duels and complete four tackles as he helped the Toffees to a 1-1 draw with rivals Liverpool. 11 Left winger: Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – After an ineffectual start to the campaign, the Chilean star has burst into life. His scintillating display against Manchester United was a joy to watch as he nabbed a brace from just three shots on goal. He also made four tackles to help his team keep out the Red Devils. Central midfield: Yohan Cabaye (Crystal Palace) – The classy French playmaker is a superb all-round footballer. Known for his passing, Cabaye’s distribution was excellent once again as he claimed an assist, but it’s now his defensive side that is impressing too. He made four tackles to halt West Brom’s foray’s forward and helped his team claim a clean sheet. 11 Centre-back: Per Mertesacker (Arsenal) – The Big F****** German had a Big F****** Problem on his hands going up against Anthony Martial on Sunday, but he came through with flying colours. The 31-year-old used all his experience to marshal the teen star and finished the game with clean sheet. Easy. Striker: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) – We don’t really need to say too much here. The Argentine’s five goals in 20 minutes were sheer brilliance. 11 Central midfield: James McCarthy (Everton) – Another player who was superb defensively at the weekend was the Toffees’ Irish star. He broke up play at Goodison Park with considerable ease and with showed he’s not just a destroyer with some fine, and accurate, passing too. Right winger: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – The Premier League has a new baby-faced assassin. The Belgian has got three goals and two assists in his four Premier League appearances so far. His display against Newcastle was marvellous and, while Raheem Sterling struggles to make an impact, proves Manuel Pellegrini does know how to spend big money correctly. Goalkeeper: Heurelho Gomes (Watford) – He might have had his critics in the past but the Brazilian shot-stopper has been in great form for the Hornets this season. The Octopus’ long limbs helped him keep out Glenn Murray’s penalty, while also making five other saves to deny Bournemouth, ensuring Watford claimed a share of the spoils. 11 11 Left-back: Christian Fuchs (Leicester City) – The Austrian star made his first Premier League start of the campaign against Norwich City and put on a good display. His appearance also allowed the talented Jeffrey Schlupp to push forward, resulting in a goal for the Ghanaian. Right-back: Hector Bellerin (Arsenal) – A modern full-back if ever there was one. Able to charge upfield and assist his team-mates when Arsenal are on the attack and impressive defensively too, Bellerin is establishing himself as on of the best right-backs in the Premier League. He was a real threat against Manchester United and completely upstaged their summer signing Matteo Darmian too. 11 11 11 It was another weekend full of goals, excitement, and shocks in the Premier League.We’ve had the first managerial departures of the season with Dick Advocaat and Brendan Rodgers leaving Sunderland and Liverpool respectively.Manchester City are back at the top of the table after an astonishing 6-1 win over Newcastle, while rivals Man United drop down after being beaten comprehensively by Arsenal.But who were the outstanding performers in a thrilling two days of action?Click the right arrow above to find out who makes talkSPORT’s team of the weekend… Attacking midfield: Christian Eriksen (Tottenham) – The deadliest free-kick taker the Premier League has to offer.
