The Belgium duo were included in a star-studded XI this week. So who else made the cut?

  1. #1 GOALKEEPER | Joe Hart (Burnley)

    After his seven saves against Manchester United, Hart has now made 21 saves in the 2018-19 Premier League, a total no other goalkeeper can better.

  2. #2 RIGHT-BACK | Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

    Walker scored his first goal for Manchester City in all competitions in his 52nd appearance for the club - a 2-1 win over Newcastle United.

  3. #3 CENTRE-BACK | Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea)

    In Chelsea's game against Bournemouth, Rudiger made more recoveries (12) than any other player on the field.

  4. #4 CENTRE-BACK | Craig Cathcart (Watford)

    Each of Cathcart’s five league goals for Watford have come at Vicarage Road and all of them have come from set-pieces (three corners, two free-kicks).

  5. #5 LEFT-BACK | Jose Holebas (Watford)

    After his two assists on Sunday, Watford’s Holebas has been directly involved in five Premier League goals so far this season (one goal, four assists) - more than any other player in the competition.

  6. #6 CENTRE MIDFIELD | Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Southampton)

    In addition to his goal, no Southampton player had more shots on target (two) or completed more passes in the final third (15) than Hojbjerg.

  7. #7 CENTRE MIDFIELD | David Silva (Manchester City)

    No player created more goal scoring opportunites in Manchester City's win over Newcastle United than Silva (four).

  8. #8 CENTRE MIDFIELD | Joao Moutinho (Wolves)

    Moutinho completed more passes in the final third than any other player in Wolves' win over West Ham (18), as well as creating a joint-high three chances in the game.

  9. #9 RIGHT WING | Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)

    Since the start of last season, only Mohamed Salah (45) and Harry Kane (35) have had a hand in more Premier League goals than Manchester City winger Sterling (31 - 20 goals, 11 assists).

  10. #10 STRIKER | Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United)

    Lukaku scored his first Premier League double for Manchester United since August 2017, when he did so on his debut in the competition for the Red Devils (against West Ham in a 4-0 win). 

  11. #11 LEFT WING | Eden Hazard (Chelsea)

    As well as scoring Chelsea's second goal against Bournemouth, Hazard created more chances (five) than any other player in the Premier League this weekend.
