Goal.com's S.League Team of the Week Round 6

The Goal.com team picks the best XI from the latest round of S.League matches
S.League Team of the Week

Formation: 4-3-3



Goalkeeper - Fadhil Salim (Hougang United)

Down to 10 men and a goal up at the break agains the league champions. What will be your team's course of action? Defend of course!

Hougang came away with an unlikely point after some heroic defending in the second-half to deny the Stags. The entire Hougang defence put in a sturdy shift at the back and Fadhil orchestrated it perfectly. Only a late late goal denied the Cheetahs a famous win.



Left-back - Jeremy Chiang (Home United)

The former Gombak United man had been under fire since the start of the season due to a string of poor performances but he has been gradually improving in recent weeks.

He put in a virtuoso performance at left-back against Albirex Niigata’s attackers and rarely put in a wrong foot during the game, successfully keeping the Japanese at bay.



Centre-back - Paul Cunningham (Balestier Khalsa)

Despite seeing his team going down 1-3 against a rejuvenated Geylang United, the Balestier captain was excellent in the game.

He displayed his versatility by playing as a striker in the game and was constantly causing problems in the Geylang box after the restart. Although he missed a few decent chances but the big defender managed to grab a consolation for his club.





Centre-back - Stanislav Vidakovic (Hougang United)

It was never an easy task going against the champions but Vidakovic dealt with the threats of Aleksandar Duric and Jamil Ali with much ease and never looked troubled in the game.

The Croatian has been excellent since joining Hougang this season and if he can keeps his performance up, he would definitely be one of the defender to beat this season.



Right-back - Nor Azli Yusoff (Home United)

It was a solid display by the defender, who looked dominant in the right-back position against the free-flowing Albirex Niigata’s strike force.

The former Sengkang Punggol (now Hougang United) captain was inch-perfect and he also showed a few smart tackles and turn to get the back ball even when the situation was against him.





Midfield - Affize Faisal (Harimau Muda)

In a run of thee games in eight days, the vice-captain for Harimau Muda lead by example and was excellent throughout, especially in the game against Brunei DPMM.

Facing the threats of Rodrigo Gral, Ivan Jerkovic, the twenty-three years old showed no fear and was up to every challenge DPMM gave him, but it was pity for him to end his week with a cramp thus being forced to come down in the match against the Courts Young Lions.




Midfield - Indra Sahdan (Home United)

The former Singapore international might not be the player he used to be, but in a new role in midfield his experience and skills prove that he is still a tricky player to handle.

Indra continues to combine well with Mendy, Shotaro Ihata and Qiu Li, with the four of them running the show for Home. His off the ball movement and passes were excellent and what’s lacking now for Indra would be him regaining his goal-scoring touches.



Midfield - Nazmi Faiz (Harimau Muda)

With his team a goal behind, Coach Ong Kim Swee made a bold move by sending on 17-year-old Nazmi Faiz but the midfielder proved doubters wrong by notching a brace and helping his team to a stunning 3-1 comeback.

Other then getting the goals, his lively presence on the field also encouraged his team-mates to fight on and get back on winning ways again after two consecutive draws against Albirex Niigata and Brunei DPMM.



Striker - Michael King (Geylang United)

The former Burnely FC trainee was excellent in the game against undefeated Balestier Khalsa as he grabbed a goal and helps his team to get all three points in a solid 3-1 win.

King made a lot of decent runs in the game to threaten the usually tight Balestier defence and was also constantly a menace for the Eagles.



Striker - Frederic Mendy (Home United)

The French striker put in a man-of-the-match display against the White Swans. He was both excellent in attack and defence as he dominated Albirex’s defence with his height and smart positioning which lead to him scoring a brace.

Mendy also constantly tracked back to help his team in defending against the tricky Japanese side.





Striker - Mun Seung Man (Geylang United)

Although he did not grab a goal against Balestier, the Korean provided the creative spark that the Eagles were lacking in recent games.

Mun was lively throughout the match, sending beautiful balls and making smart runs into Balestier’s defence. If he continues his form, he would be a tricky player to handle for most defenders.
