BBC XI of the week

It’s Monday, which means it’s time for the BBC’s Premier League team of the week.

This week’s selection by Garth Crooks shows the grip of the big boys in the Premier League after six rounds of the new season.

The eleven players in the team all come from either Arsenal, Spurs, Man United, Man City or Liverpool.

Southampton striker Charlie Austin will feel unlucky to have missed the cut.

So who is in?

There are three Arsenal players in the backline: goalie Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin and Laurent Koscielny.

Filling out the rest of the defence were Man United’s Chris Smalling and Liverpool’s makeshift left-back James Milner. Both players scored over the weekend.

Strong midfield

Tottenham’s Son Heung-min was picked in midfield after his double against Boro.

He was joined by Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Man City’s Raheem Sterling, who both also scored on Saturday.

The final midfield slot went to Man United’s Paul Pogba, who scored his first EPL goal of the season with a header v Hull.

Lethal front two

Having served a three game suspension, Sergio Aguero marked his Man City return with a double at Swansea.

The Argentine was joined up front in the BBC team by Arsenal’s Chilean star Alexis Sanchez.

Mirror’s best EPL team from Saturday

It’s interesting to compare the BBC team with an XI produced by the Mirror on Sunday.

Incredibly the tabloid failed to include a single Arsenal player in their selection over the weekend.
