Matchday 38 brought a fitting end to an exhilarating Premier League season. Manchester City lifted the famous trophy for the second consecutive year after surviving an early scare against Brighton – all while Liverpool managed to keep Wolves at bay. While we have another two months to wait until the curtain-raiser Community Shield game, let's have a look at the eleven footballers who made it to this week's best XI

GK: Neil Etheridge (Cardiff City)

The Cardiff City shot-stopper had a major say in their 2-0 victory over Man United, as he and his teammates bowed out of the Premier League in style.

Etheridge made 10 saves and denied Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men to end their lamantable season with a win.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)

Trent Alexander-Arnold played a massive role against a dynamic and young Wolverhampton side, helping Liverpool to notch a 2-0 win; he made 4 tackles throughout the game. The Englishman is steadily becoming one of the right-backs to look out for in the country and we can only expect him to improve in the next season.


CB: Fabian Schar (Newcastle)

Fabian Schar churne churned out a man-of-the-match display as Newcastle annihilated Fulham with a 4-0 scoreline. The 27-year-old scored the 3rd goal from a Matt Ritchie corner. On the defensive front, he made 2 tackles and won 2 aerial duels, maintaining a pas success rate of 95%.


CB: Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City)

Aymeric Laporte scored a crucial header to put Man City on the lead and complete a first-half comeback – a game the Citizens eventually won 4-1. He maintained a pass success rate of 96% and won 2 aerial duels, accounting for a worthy place in this week's best XI.


LB: Matt Ritchie (Newcastle)

Matt Ritchie put up an impressive display, providing two assists for Schar and Shelvey from 3 corners. He also made 2 successful tackles throughout the game.


RM: Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (Cardiff City)

Mendez-Laing was the man responsible for piling more misery on Manchester United in their last game of the season. The wily attacker scored a cool-headed penalty before arriving in the right place at the right time to make it 2-0 with a tap-in.


CM: Mark Noble (West Ham)

West Ham thrashed Watford 4-1 and Mark Noble had a decisive say in the scoreline. The Englishman scored the first and last goal for the Magpies. The first goal was the result of a fine dribble while the second was scored from the penalty spot. He also maintained an impressive pass success rate of 97%.


LM: Riyadh Maharez (Manchester City)

Riyadh Maharez found first-team opportunities difficult to come by in his debut season at Manchester City. However, when granted the chance, the Algerian made sure he didn't disappoint.

Maharez scored the third goal in the 4-1 victory against Brighton, a fine effort from outside the box, killing the game and all but tilting the title in City's favour.


RF: Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)

Crystal Palace won 5-3 against Bournemouth at home and Wilfried Zaha pretty much decided the game on his own.

The Englishman conjured two assists for Van Aanholt and Townsend, completed 3 dribbles and maintained an impressive pass success rate of 86%.


CF: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)

The Gabonese striker struck a brace in Arsenal's 3-1 win away over Burnley. In doing so, he also secured a Premier League Golden Boot for himself alongside Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah, finishing the campaign with 22 goals.


LF: Sadio Mane (Liverpool)

Sadio Mane netted two all-important goals against Wolverhamton to keep Liverpool in the title race until the end. Although Liverpool were unlucky enough to lose the title by a point, the Senegalese striker ended his season on a high – equalling Salah and Aubameyang's 22-goal tally and winning a Golden Boot for himself.
