Jamie Redknapp’s Team of the Week: Man Utd duo join Liverpool and Man City stars in 4-3-3 | Football | Sport
Former Liverpool midfielder and pundit Jamie Redknapp has revealed his latest Team of the Week after a thrilling round of Premier League action.
Manchester City pulled off the shock of the weekend with a 6-0 thrashing of Chelsea at the Etihad on Sunday.
Manchester United are now 11 matches unbeaten under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer while Liverpool and Arsenal earned three points against Bournemouth and Huddersfield respectively.
Burnley pulled off a 3-1 win away against Brighton thanks to heroics from Tom Heaton in the Clarets’ goal, with the England keeper making the cut in Redknapp’s XI.
Cardiff also secured a vital victory over Southampton to improve their chances of survival and Watford ensured it was an unhappy return to Vicarage Road for Everton manager Marco Silva.
Tottenham and Leicester are the other teams represented in Redknapp’s XI this time around – but which players make the Team of the Week?
GK: Tom Heaton (Burnley)
Heaton made five saves to keep the Seagulls at bay, helping Sea Dyche’s side move up to 15th in the table.
RB: Daryl Janmaat (Watford)
Watford continue to defy expectations and are in the hunt for Europa League qualification after beating Everton 1-0 this weekend.
Andre Gray scored the only goal of the game, but Janmaat was an integral part of the Hornets’ rearguard that secured the points.
CB: Davinson Sanchez (Tottenham Hotspur)
The Colombian defender opened the scoring against Leicester at Wembley and is currently keeping Toby Alderweireld out of the Spurs side.
CB: Sol Bamba (Cardiff City)
A late, late winner from the Ivory Coast international could be vital come the end of the season.
Bemba now has three goals this season and has missed just one match of Cardiff’s campaign so far.
LB: Luke Shaw (Manchester United)
A second consecutive clean sheet for United as they cruised past Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Shaw was a stand-out performer in the win and comfortably makes Redknapp’s selection.
CM: Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool)
Often the unsung hero of Liverpool’s side but Wijnaldum is justifiably earning rave reviews for recent performances.
The Dutchman bagged a rare goal against Bournemouth but was also at his destructive best without the ball, stifling attacks and mopping up any danger as the Reds run riot.
CM: Youri Tielemens (Leicester City)
A Premier League debut for the Belgian international after his loan move from Monaco, with Tielemens acquitting himself superbly against a dominant Tottenham side.
CM: Paul Pogba (Manchester United)
Two more goals for the Frenchman takes his tally up to 11 for the season, with eight of those coming since Solskjaer took over at Old Trafford.
ST: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)
Impossible not to include Aguero after his recent heroics.
Back-to-back hat-tricks for the Man City star has seen him move joint-top of the Premier League goalscorer’s chart.
ST: Chris Wood (Burnley)
Wood was on target twice for the Clarets against Brighton, and has now scored seven goals in total against the Seagulls.
ST: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)
The England international is in devastating form this season with 12 goals and 13 assists in the Premier League.
A real handful for Chelsea and was a key component in Pep Guardiola’s rampant side.
