There was no big surprise in the results of Premier League gameweek 32 and in most grounds, favourites won. There were some individual brilliance, and some prolific performance from a few players. Naturally, it’s never an easy task to pick best eleven for a Premier League week.
Let us take a look at the best players according to the positions. We will go with a 4-4-2 diamond formation this time.
David De Gea, David Ospina, Martin Dubravka, Pete Schmeichel and Joe Hart maintained clean sheets in gameweek 32, while Jack Butland made as many as eight saves, but conceded three goals in the process two of which were from the spot. In our opinion, the best performer was Schmeichel who saved a penalty in a crucial moment, and eventually helped his team get three points. Although his show other than the penalty was not extraordinary, that save itself is good enough to earn him a place in our team.
On the left flank, Schmeichel’s teammate Ben Chillwell is our choice. He had a good game, recorded an assist and helped maintain the clean sheet. The other fullback will be Ryan Fraser. The Bournemouth midfielder fitted well in his new position and provided necessary contributions to his team. Although the Cherries failed to win, Fraser was the best right back of gameweek 32.
In the heart of our defense, we have to go with Shkodran Mustafi who led the Arsenal defense in absence of Laurent Koscielny. The German was also a menacing presence in the opponent box whenever the Gunners got a set-piece. Florian Lejeune of Newcastle will complete our defensive lineup. With four important tackles and two clearances, he was arguably the best player of that game and he helped Newcastle get all important three points against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
It will be four man midfield formed by Jonjo Shelvey, David Silva, Alexis Sanchez and Dele Alli. The last of the lot possibly had the biggest impact in gameweek 32. Alli scored twice to help Tottenham win 3-1 against Chelsea and that gave Mauricio Pochettino’s men a well-earned eight point lead over the Blues.
On the other hand, Sanchez played brilliantly against struggling League side Swansea. The Chilean recorded a goal and an assist and was always dangerous in the opposing half.
Silva, as had happened many times in the past, was the architect behind Manchester City’s yet another comfortable win. His presence in the midfield made a huge difference for his team. He was the continuous supplier for Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling and in the process, the Spaniard got two assists to his name.
Newcastle midfielder Shelvey had a good game as well. During his side’s narrow victory over Huddersfield, he played his part with his defensive prowess and passing. Along with five key passes, he took four shots as well. It was a choice between Eric Dier and him, and we think Shelvey deserves it more in gameweek 32.
West Ham’s 3-0 win was possible because of Marco Arnautovich’s exceptional form. He scored a brace and took the game away from Southampton. This victory might pave the way to the Hammers’ redemption this season, and can well go the way to help them stay in the top tier. Arnautovich’s partner in our gameweek 32 best eleven is going to Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. Arsenal’s new signing netted the first two goals within a span of few minutes after a resilient Stoke City defense kept him at bay for 75 minutes. He could have scored a hat-trick as well when Arsenal got a penalty towards the fag end. But, he passed up on that opportunity. Nonetheless, he deserves a place in our team of the week.
Thus, here is our complete lineup for gameweek 32 best eleven:
