Man’s Life Premier League 22-23 Team of the Week 11

PL TOTW_Week 11

GK: Alisson (Liverpool)

Matchday 11 was a game-week to remember for goalkeepers as Kepa Arrizabalaga, Aaron Ramsdale, Jose Sa, and David Raya all displayed terrific performances to keep clean sheets for their side. However, the pick of the bunch was Liverpool shot-stopper Alisson. The Brazilian not only made five saves to deny Erling Haaland and co but also provided the assist for Mohamed Salah’s goal with an ingenious volleyed pass to the forward.

RB: James Milner (Liverpool)

Considering James Milner is 36 years old and playing as a right-back against one of the best young forwards in the country Phil Foden, the Englishman did a terrific job on Sunday at Anfield. Although Milner was fortunate that Foden’s goal was ruled out due to a foul in the build-up, the Liverpool veteran defended admirably and was part of a solid defensive display that kept Manchester City and Erling Haaland quiet for the first time this season.

CB: Joe Gomez (Liverpool)

Virgil van Dijk will get all the plaudits for keeping Erling Haaland at bay, but the real hero of the Liverpool backline was Joe Gomez. The Englishman was proactive in snuffing out any dangerous situations before they developed and made plenty of crucial interceptions and blocks to help the Reds take a morale-boosting 1-0 victory against Manchester City.

CB: Gabriel (Arsenal)

Barring his meltdown in stoppage time, Gabriel had a solid afternoon marshalling Arsenal’s backline. The Brazilian won all three of his tackles and made ten clearances and blocks to help the Gunners’ grind out a tough win away at Leeds.

LB: Romain Perraud (Southampton)

Romain Perraud’s first-half strike helped Southampton end their run of four league defeats in a row, with the Frenchman’s strike making its way past Fabianski after a big deflection.

CM: Mason Mount (Chelsea)

After grabbing his first two assists of the Premier League season last week, Mount scored his maiden couple of goals against Aston Villa at the weekend. The Englishman capitalized on Tyrone Mings’ error to open the scoring before wrong-footing Emi Martinez with a direct free kick in the second period to wrap up the three points.

CM: Declan Rice (West Ham)

Declan Rice secured a crucial point for West Ham with his maiden goal of the season, the Englishman curling one past Gavin Bazunu from outside the area.

CM: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Tottenham)

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been one of Tottenham’s best performers this season, and the Danish midfielder scored the decisive second goal against Everton to help Spurs get off to their best league start in history.

LW: Brendan Aaronson (Leeds United)

Although he didn’t impact the game in terms of goals and assists, Leeds United winger Brendan Aaronson was electric against Arsenal on Sunday. The American created four chances and was infectious with his pressing as Jesse Marsch’s side pinned back Arsenal into their half for the entire second period.

RW: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

Having been restored to his natural position away from the touchline, Mohamed Salah put in a performance for the ages against Manchester City. The Egyptian tore the Cityzens’ backline to shreds with his pace and dribbling and was ultimately the difference between the two sides, scoring the winner in the 76th minute against Ederson.

ST: Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth)

Since their 9-0 loss at Liverpool in August, Bournemouth have avoided defeat in their last six Premier League games. The Cherries maintained their top-half status with another draw at Fulham on the weekend, with Dominic Solanke producing a superb display as a number nine, the English youth international grabbing a goal and assist.

Manager: Jesse Marsch (Leeds United)

Leeds United were unlucky to come away with nothing from their home tie against Arsenal, and Jesse Marsch deserves tremendous credit for how he set up his side against the Premier League leaders. Leeds comfortably dominated the best team in the league throughout the 90 minutes, with the Gunners unable to deal with the Peacocks’ energy and high-pressing style.
