Formation : 4-3-3 



GK - Jasper Cillessen (Valencia)



Cillessen made some outrageous saves to keep Valencia in the game against Celta Vigo. He conceded a goal but he saved the other 5 shots from Celta that were on target including a penalty. Celta Vigo won the game but Cillessen was top class and showed his worth again. 



RB - Ander Capa (Athletic Bilbao)



Bilbao drew 1-1 against Getafe in the second game of the La Liga campaign. Capa was heavily involved in Bilbao's attack as well as defense. He completed the most dribbles in the game (4) and bagged an assist. He created the most chances in the game (2) and also had the most tackles from the game (4). His assist came in the form of a cross to Raul Garcia. 



CB - Stefan Savić (Atletico Madrid) 



Savic was probably the best Atletico player in their away win against Leganes. He has been really comfortable alongside Gimenez and has shown that he deserves to be a starter for El Cholo's team. He had the most tackles from the game (3) and won 100% of his tackles. He helped Los Rojiblancos maintain a second consecutive clean sheet.



CB - José Giménez (Atletico Madrid)



Another Atletico defender in our list, Giménez was very sharp against Leganes. He completed the most passes in the game (50) and was also the most accurate passer (91%) to play more than 45 mins. He was amazing alongside Savic and helped his team achieve a clean sheet. 



LB - Jordi Alba (FC Barcelona)



Jordi Alba was excellent good forward against Betis as usual and also scored a goal in Barca's 5-2 drubbing of Betis. He had the highest pass count in the game with 95. He creates three chances and managed 100% successful long balls. 



CM - Joan Jordán (Sevilla)



He was critical in Sevilla's 1-0 win over Granada and scored the sole goal of the game. He had a passing accuracy of 86% and completed the most passes (59) in the game. He also created 2 chances upfront and completed 100% of the dribbles attempted. His impressive performances in the early stages prove that he has settled in well under Lopetegui. 



CM - Martin Ødegaard (Real Sociedad)



Ødegaard was arguably the best player for Real Sociedad in their win against Mallorca. He initiated the attack of the only goal of the game and finished it himself to help his team grab all three points at Iberostar. He completed the most dribbles(4) from the game. 



CM - Denis Suárez (Celta Vigo)



Denis was key in Celta's win over Valencia despite missing a penalty in the 90th min. He completed 4 dribbles (most in the game) and even created the most chances (4). Most importantly, he bagged an assist with Gabriel Fernandez as the goalscorer of the only goal of the game. 



RW - Carles Pérez (FC Barcelona)



Barca B right-winger was very strong in the attack and combined in well with Griezmann in the absence of Messi. He was intelligent with his movement and caused problems to Betis' backline. He constantly switched positions with Rafinha in the game and looked comfortable on both wings. He had 3 shots and also completed two dribbles. Most importantly, he scored the third goal of the game after latching onto Semedo's pass and slowly curling it past Dani Martin.



CF - Antoine Griezmann (FC Barcelona)



Cometh the hour, cometh the man.

Griezmann was the best player for Barcelona in their 5-2 over Betis and scored at the most critical moments. After a dismal performance against Bilbao, Griezmann scored a brace and also bagged an assist. He was intelligent with his movement upfront and his first touch, something which was missing against Bilbao. He often dropped deep to recover balls and it has been a while since Barca had someone who can take some burden off Messi in creating as well as scoring.



LW - Roger Marti (Levante)



Super-sub of the week, Roger Marti came in the 63rd minute replacing Sergio Leon and scored two penalties in the span of 5 mins. He out in an outrageously good display for Levante in their 2-1 win against Villarreal. He was full of confidence in taking the penalties and was sharp & incisive upfront. 



Substitutes:-


Marko Dmitrovic (Eibar), Jose Campana (Levante), Oscar Plano (Real Valladolid), Raul Garcia (Bilbao), Joao Felix (Atletico Madrid), Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
