Gary Cahill

Manchester & Liverpool stars join Christian Eriksen & Gary Cahill in BBC XI

BBC XI of the Week

As always on a Monday morning, the BBC have compiled their team of the week.

Man United, Man City and West Brom all lead the way with two players apiece in the XI, while Chelsea, Spurs, Everton, Liverpool and Leicester all have one representative each in the team

The back five

Could Kasper Schmeichel be heading to Man United? The Leicester goalie was again in sublime form over the weekend as he made a match-winning save at West Ham to win the game.

West Brom beat Arsenal 3-1 at the Hawthorns, and two of their defenders – Allan Nyom and double goalscorer Craig Dawson – were picked in the XI.

Gary Cahill earned Chelsea all three points at Stoke on Saturday, as the Blues defender was selected at the back alongside Man City’s John Stones who impressed in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Midfield three

Although Jose Mourinho has fielded Antonio Valencia at right-back this season, the BBC placed the Man United defender in midfield in their setup.

Also in midfield was Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen, who scored the opener for Spurs in a 2-1 win over Southampton.

Man City’s David Silva completed the trio in the middle of the park – but should Leroy Sane have been picked instead?

The front three

Sadio Mane failed to get on the scoresheet for Liverpool in their 1-1 draw at Man City, yet the Reds forward did enough to get picked by the BBC.

Romelu Lukaku made the cut after the Everton striker scored twice against Hull. The Belgian is the first player to reach 20 EPL goals this season.

The final slot went to Man United’s Jesse Lingard who, despite being a midfielder, was chosen to play in attack after his solo stunner at Boro.
