Soccernet picks the Premier League team of the week based on their performance last weekend.
Ederson (Manchester City) – Made a string of fine saves in victory at Bournemouth, even though he conceded from Harry Wilson’s spectacular free-kick.
Frederic Guilbert (Aston Villa) – Helped keep Everton quiet and justified manager Dean Smith’s decision to bring him into the team with a fine display.
Joel Matip (Liverpool) – scored his second goal of August but also excelled at his usual job by defending very well in a victory over Arsenal.
Paul Dummett (Newcastle United) – A rock at the back, making 12 clearances as Newcastle snuffed Tottenham out to get Steve Bruce an unexpected first win.
Patrick van Aanholt (Crystal Palace) – The man who sealed a famous win. The goalscoring left-back popped up in the 90th minute to get Palace a rare victory at Old Trafford.
Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – A nerveless penalty and a sublime second goal made Salah the scourge of Arsenal as he maintained Liverpool’s 100 per cent start.
James Maddison (Leicester City) – Provided a beautiful pass for Jamie Vardy to open the scoring at Sheffield United. Should have impressed Gareth Southgate.
David Silva (Manchester City) – Marked his 400th City appearance with a typical display of classy passing and a part in all three goals at Bournemouth.
Mason Mount (Chelsea) – A revelation this season, he made it two goals in as many games with a terrific finish as Frank Lampard got his first win at Norwich.
Jordan Ayew (Crystal Palace) – Led the line wonderfully and took his goal well to show why Roy Hodgson recalled him as Palace defeated Manchester United.
Sebastien Haller (West Ham) – The £45 million man opened his West Ham account with a brace at Watford. His second was spectacular and special.
