Another eventful week at the Premier League has come to a close. We saw some high-quality football in the Premier League and some very impressive performances across the week and though we couldn’t include all of the players, here’s our Premier League Team of the week.
GK-Alisson Becker (Liverpool)
Alisson Becker had more dribbles won against Brighton than Keita, Milner and Wijnaldum did. pic.twitter.com/xcgn7axF9L

To go with that stat, Alisson kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 win and kept out a late header from Pascal Gross that seemed destined to find the net. Phenomenal.
RB- Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)
Happy to celebrate my 200th @premierleague appearance with a win! Great ambition and hunger from the team until the end! Special mention to all the travelling fans in a long rainy journey! #KTBFFH 🔵🔵 pic.twitter.com/GxnUV2Xino

ST- Aleksandr Mitrovic (Fulham)
Aleksandar Mitrovic was Fulham's two-goal hero as the side from Craven Cottage secured their first victory since returning to the Premier League.

Di Matteo, Benitez, Mourinho, Hiddink, Conte and now Sarri. The Managers keep changing but Eden Hazard is still the star man for the Blues.
