TEAM OF THE WEEK

high­light be­ing his cross for Andy Car­roll’s win­ner.

MD: Ser­gio Bus­quets (Barcelona). Another im­pres­sive dis­play from the La Ma­sia grad­u­ate who bossed the midfield through­out the game as the Blau­grana over­came new­com­ers Eibar in the Primera Liga.

MD: Me­sut Ozil (Arse­nal). Ozil is a fab­u­lous foot­baller and one of the rea­sons the Gun­ners are hav­ing suc­cess at the mo­ment. Against Ev­er­ton he was sen­sa­tional and just waltzed through the game.

RW: Ar­jen Robben (Bay­ern Mu­nich). Look­ing for a record-break­ing 1000th Bun­desliga win in the com­pe­ti­tion’s 53 years of ex­is­tence and Robben made it hap­pen by open­ing the

scor­ing with a su­perb strike.

LW: Ethan Finlay (Colum­bus Crew). Finlay bagged two goals in one minute to put the de­ci­sive touch on Crew SC’s dom­i­nat­ing 5-0 vic­tory against D.C. The only neg­a­tive? He was stoned by Bill Hamid in stop­page time, deny­ing his bid for a hat trick.

FW: Harry Kane (Tot­ten­ham). Kane had only scored one league goal this sea­son prior to the game against Bournemouth but a hat­trick against the Cher­ries has put that par­tic­u­lar stat to bed as the striker came off to a stand­ing ova­tion.

FW: Pierre Aubameyang (Bor­ru­sia Dort­mund). Aubameyang got his first hat-trick of the league cam­paign last week and has been cru­cial to Tuchel’s newlook Dort­mund, scor­ing or as­sist­ing in ev­ery game he’s played.
