Game week 35 saw nine matches being played over a week, starting from last Tuesday until yesterday.
During game week 35, champions Manchester City proved their mettle with a 5-0 thumping over Swansea City while Manchester United consolidated their second spot in the league, thanks to a 2-0 away victory at Bournemouth. United’s second spot was further ensured as Liverpool and Tottenham lost points against West Bromwich and Brighton, respectively.
Let us now try to find out best eleven from game week 35.
Wayne Hennessey of Crystal Palace made five astonishing saves to keep Watford players at bay, and ensured one point for his team in the process. With this draw, the Eagles sit at the 14th position, six point above the relegation zone; and Hennessey’s contributions might just save their season in the end.
In the center of the defense line, we are going to rely on Shane Duffy, James Tomkins and Wesley Hoedt. They were very effective for their respective teams, Brighton, Southampton and Crystal Palace.
Tomkins recorded astounding numbers defensively against Watford, and was the main reason behind Crystal’s goalless draw. Tomkins even tried his luck to score for his team for a consecutive second match, but the post stopped him this time. Duffy, on the other hand, made five crucial interceptions and ten clearances against the likes of Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen. He was one of the best Brighton players on the pitch and thanks to him, Tottenham could not get full points from this match.
For the final choice, it was a tough competition among Phil Jones, Gary Cahill and Hoedt. We are going with the Saints defender, for the other two players did not face very difficult opponents. Hoedt’s stats were good enough to stop Jamie Vardy and co, and to help Southampton secure one point from this important fixture.
Wilfred Ndidi was star performer of this week. He was instrumental for Leicester City in the middle of the pitch, and is deservingly included in the best eleven for game week 35. His partner is Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey who was good in both roles for his team. Not only he showed defensive prowess, but he also took four shots at the goal and provided two key passes for the Gunners’ attackers.
On both sides of this duo, Victor Moses and Ben Chilwell will be included in game week 35 best eleven. Moses scored the winner for Chelsea against Burnley and helped them get all the points to maintain hope for a top four finish. Chilwell has been a revelation for Leicester City this season, and once again, he delivered. Playing an important game against Southampton, the left back tried his best to provide necessary support in both ends. He was surely one of the better players on the pitch that day, and deserves to be in our team.
Best center forward of the week is most certainly Alexander Lacazette. The Arsenal forward scored a brace to get a 4-1 win over West Ham. On the right of him, Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva is an automatic choice. He scored a goal from two shots, dribbled past Swansea defenders five times and provided four key passes for his teammates. It was a good game for the winger.
Finally, for the last spot, in the left flank, there was no extraordinary performer this week. After due consideration, we have decided to go with Anthony Martial. The Manchester United winger started a game after some time, and was always a threat to the Cherries. Albeit he could not score, his performance was good for the team, and he is going to occupy the left wing for our team of the week.
So, here is our team of the week from game week 35:
