Another exhilarating weekend of Premier league action has come and gone. Gameweek six of the Premier League had a relatively normal set of matches in comparison to the previous game weeks. There weren’t any shocking results, high scoring matches and major upsets as we have witnessed since the start of this strange season.

The headline fixture of gameweek six saw Manchester United and Chelsea lock horns in a drab goalless affair. West Ham held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw while Arsenal were outfoxed by Leicester City. Liverpool claimed a hard fought 2-1 victory against Sheffield United while Tottenham Hotspur scraped past Burnley. Leeds continued their impressive start to the season by dismantling Aston Villa courtesy of a Patrick Bamford hattrick.

There were some spectacular individual performances and here is the Chase Your Sport Premier League Team of the Week: Game week 6.



Goal Keeper: Edouard Mendy (Chelsea):

Chelsea have Edouard Mendy to thank for a solid defensive display and keeping Manchester United at bay. Mendy made four saves to keep the scoreline 0-0, including a brilliant flying save of a Marcus Rashford shot in the latter stages of the match. Have Chelsea finally found their Number 1?

Right Back: Reece James (Chelsea):

A strong defensive showing by the England right back saw Chelsea keep a clean sheet keep their second clean sheet of the season. In the first half, Reece James didn’t have much joy attacking forward, but in the second half was a constant threat on the right hand side. Swung in some delightful crosses, which should have been converted by the Chelsea attackers. An all-round performance by one of England’s promising talent.


Center Back: Wesley Fofana (Leicester City):

The 19 year-old summer signing from St. Etienne, Wesley Fofana played in pivotal role for Leicester on their way to a 1-0 victory over Arsenal. Filling in for the injured Caglar Soyuncu against the pacey Arsenal attack, Fofana played as though he had been around forever. His recovery pace, reading of the game and tackling was extraordinary throughout the game. For a 19 year-old, he can only go on and improve to cement a place in the heart of defence for years to come.


Center Back: Luke Ayling (Leeds United):

Due to an injury crisis in defence, Luke Ayling switched to Centre back to great effect. Ayling’s distribution of the ball was on point, in addition to his reading of the game. Ayling made more blocks than any other player of the pitch an countered the attacking threat of Aston Villa quite well. The standout moment was his goal line clearance off a Jack Grealish shot, highlighting his awareness. 

Left Back: Ryan Bertrand (Southampton):

Ryan Bertrand has been a mainstay in the Saints defence for a number of years. Against Everton, Bertrand showed his experience to keep the in-form Everton attackers silent. Clean in his tackling, effective in his passing and showing maturity, Bertrand was the standout left back in gam week six.

Central Midfield: James Ward Prowse (Southampton):

Southampton became the first side to beat Everton in the league, beating the Merseyside club by 2-0. Saints captain James Ward-Prowse opened the scoring with a firmly struck shot following a slick one-two. Dictating the tempo of the game, Ward-Prowse was a livewire on the field throughout the match.

Central Midfield: Jairo Riedewald (Crystal Palace):

Initially, signed as a ball playing centre back from Ajax, Jairo Riedewald has had to wait for his opportunity at Crystal Palace. Adept at playing in the centre of midfield, Riedewald had a showing to remember against London rivals Fulham. His ability on the ball and his positioning throughout the game gave Palace a strong hold in the game. He duly finished off a brilliant  Palace move to grab his first goal of the season.

Central Attacking Midfield: Roberto Firmino (Liverpool):

Playing as a false 9 throughout his Liverpool career, Kloop stationed Firmino in an attacking midfield role with Jota, Salah and Mane in front of him. With his lack of goal tally, Firmino has faced lot of stick from pundits and fans. Firmino latched on to a rebound shot and found the back of the net to level the scoring against Sheffield United. It was Firmino’s off the ball work as well his link up play which was eye catching.

Right Wing: Wilfred Zaha (Crystal Palace):

Wilfred Zaha proved yet again why he is Palace’s main man. Wilfred Zaha scored the opening goal of the match with a well taken strike, amassing his 5th goal of the season. Zaha then created the second goal to double Palace’s lead against Fulham. With a strong start to the season, Zaha looks all set to reach his best career number in terms of assists and goals till date.

Left Wing: Son Heung-min (Spurs):

Heung-min Son grabbed the solitary goal of the match for Spurs against a resolute Burnley defence. Once again combining with Harry Kane, Son headed the ball past Bunley keeper Nick Pope. Son’s extraordinary start to the season sees him top of the goal chart with 8 goals to his name. Can Son lead Jose’s men to a top 4 finish over even a title challenge?

Striker: Patrick Bamford (Leeds United):

The standout player of gameweek 6 was Patrick Bamford, netting his first Premier League hattrick. Bamford’s second goal was one of the best goals of Gameweek 6 as found the top corner of the net. Aston Villa- an in form team couldn’t deal with the threat of Bamford as they succumbed to a 3-0 loss. Maybe, an England call-up is on the way for Leed’s Number 9!
