Tottenham's dominant performance against Liverpool got them three representatives, equalling Manchester City who also boast a trio in the line-up


HUGO LLORIS | TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR


Hugo Lloris Tottenham Liverpool

While perhaps he should have reacted quicker for Mohamed Salah's goal, Lloris more than made up for it after. The keeper made six saves at Wembley, including a spectacular second-half stop on Philippe Coutinho, conceding just one goal from Liverpool's seven shots on target. 


BRUNO SALTOR | BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION


Bruno Saltor Marko Arnautovic Brighton West Ham

Bruno had more touches than any other Brighton player in the dominant 3-0 away win against West Ham (63), and also made three interceptions for the Seagulls.


VIRGIL VAN DIJK | SOUTHAMPTON

While Liverpool's back line struggled against Tottenham, their summer target Van Dijk recovered possession 12 times in a 1-0 win against West Brom; more than any other Saints player.


NICOLAS OTAMENDI | MANCHESTER CITY


Nicolas Otamendi Manchester City

Otamendi contributed in all facets of Manchester City's home 3-0 home win over Burnley.  The defender made four clearances and two tackles, and also bagged City's second goal of the contest.


FABIAN DELPH | MANCHESTER CITY

Maybe he is the left-back answer? Delph attempted 95 passes in the victory over Burnley for City and completed an impressive 93 per cent of them. 


ABDOULAYE DOUCOURE | WATFORD


Abdoulaye Doucoure Watford

Scoring Watford's first goal, his fourth of the Premier League season, certainly helped Doucoure have a good day. But he also recovered possession more times than any other player for the Hornets (10), albeit in a 4-2 loss to Chelsea. 


KEVIN DE BRUYNE | MANCHESTER CITY


Kevin De Bruyne Manchester City

Another game, another Premier League Team of the Week for De Bruyne. The Belgian created four chances and notched an assist against Burnley; more than any other player for Guardiola's side. 


DELE ALLI | TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR


Dele Alli Tottenham

With Liverpool pushing for a late first-half equalizer, Alli pounced on a poor Joel Matip clearance to re-establish Spurs two-goal lead. In addition, Alli created two goal-scoring chances for his team-mates. 


MESUT OZIL | ARSENAL


Mesut Ozil Arsenal

The German international created eight chances (including an assist) at Goodison Park, twice as many as any other Arsenal player and a Premier League high for any player so far this year.


HARRY KANE | TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

ALEXIS SANCHEZ | ARSENAL


Alexis Sanchez Arsenal Everton

Sanchez played a big part in the Gunners' 5-2 win over Everton at Goodison Park. The Chile international scored once and assisted another in Arsenal's comprehensive victory.
