Now that week 9 is behind us it’s time to look at the players who impressed this week in the Premier League. As always if you disagree you can comment below or call us out on Twitter @nerdhubonline
GK – Victor Valdes
Celebrated a save from former teammate Alexis Sanchez with a beaming smile, not to mention he’s slowly returning to his Barcelona form.
LB – Christian Fuchs
Opened his Leicester account in style on the weekend, that and a dominant performance against Crystal Palace made sure he could celebrate with all 3 points.
CB – Winston Reid
Topped his performance with a wonderful strike, he’s clearly been practising his shooting with Alex Hunter.
CB – Gary Cahill
I Promise I didn’t just pick players that scored, I think we are all surprised by the result, and even more surprised that Gary Cahill played well!
RB – Cesar Azpilicueta
I told you! but arguably the best defender on the pitch, and one of the most consistent Chelsea players over the last few seasons
CM – N’Golo Kante
HE ACTUALLY SCORED. And had the performance we all expect from him in the destruction of Manchester United.
CM – Oriol Romeu
Another big tackling performance from Romeu, on his day this man is a machine.
CM – Philippe Coutinho
The magician, he really showed what Liverpool miss when he isn’t playing.
LW – Adama Traore
Showed glimpses of what Barcelona saw in him, unfortunately for Arsenal those glimpses lasted most of the game.
ST – Shinji Okazaki
After a tough start to the campaign Leicester and starting to recapture the form of last season, the pace and work rate of Okazaki was a massive part of that.
RW – Xherdan Shaqiri
Two wonderful goals and a performance that showed why he played for Bayern, that’s probably him done until January now though.
