Also featuring in the team of the week is Manchester United's Casemiro who popped up late to score a dramatic equaliser against Chelsea. It was also his first-ever goal for Manchester United after making the move from Real Madrid in the summer of 2022.


Nottingham Forest custodian Dean Henderson, who made a stunning save late in the game to keep out Virgil van Dijk's header, takes the place in goal.

The defence is made up of Leicester's Timothy Castagne, Chelsea's Thiago Silva, Everton full-back Vitaly Mykolenko and Mancehster United's Luke Shaw. In fact, it was Shaw's cross that was converted by Casemiro.

Casemiro is joined by Everton's Alex Iwobi and Aston Villa's Leon Bailey in midfield.

The front three is made up of the excellent Miguel Almiron who is enjoying a purple patch of late, Man City ace Erling Haaland who seems virtually unstoppable and Aston Villa's Danny Ings.
