Garth Crooks' team of the week: Silva, Gabriel, Lingard, Toney


Recommended Posts

Chelsea stretched their unbeaten Premier League run to five games with a comfortable 3-0 win over Tottenham.

Substitute Mark Noble saw his dramatic injury-time penalty saved as West Ham lost 2-1 to Manchester United,Liverpool easily beat Crystal Palace 3-0 and champions Manchester City were held to a goalless draw by Southampton.

Brentford beat Wolves 2-0 to claim their first win on the road and Arsenal also got their first away win with a 1-0 victory at Burnley.

Aston Villa ended Everton's unbeaten run with a 3-0 win over the Toffees, Brighton continued their impressive start to the season with a 2-1 win over Leicester and Watford won the battle of the two promoted sides as they beat Norwich 3-1.

Check out my team of the week and then make your own selections towards the bottom of the article.

Goalkeeper: David de Gea (Manchester United)

Well, it was Watford's Ben Foster who made my selection until David de Gea produced the penalty save that won Manchester United the game.

Why David Moyes allows substitute Mark Noble on to the pitch and the first thing he is asked to do is to take a penalty beggars belief. Taking penalties are difficult enough without adding to the pressure and handing the initiative to the goalkeeper.

De Gea got his left hand to the ball when it looked as though the keeper's upper body might have slightly passed the ball, which made the save even more impressive. Players often get criticised for making mistakes. Managers can sometimes be too clever for their own good.

Did you know? De Gea has saved his first penalty for Manchester United in the Premier League since October 2014 (v Everton), with this being the 22nd penalty he has faced since his last stop.

Defenders: Matty Cash (Aston Villa), Kristoffer Ajer (Brentford), Gabriel (Arsenal), Thiago Silva (Chelsea)

Cash: If you're going to score your first goal for your club, you might as well do it in front of your home supporters, make it memorable and be on the winning side. Matty Cash managed to do all three.

This lad is a decent defender but it's the first time I've seen him drive into the opposition's penalty area with goals on his mind. This is a right-back who finished brilliantly with his left foot. This was an excellent performance by Villa and not before time. They've been very ordinary until now.

Did you know? Cash scored his first Premier League goal for Aston Villa, in what was his 33rd appearance in the competition. The full-back had three shots, more than any other player in the match.

Kristoffer Ajer: The tackle by Kristoffer Ajer on Hwang Hee-chan was sensational. It didn't just protect Brentford's clean sheet but secured three valuable points. At the time, the Bees were down to 10 men and might have subsequently collapsed had Ajer not made the crucial intervention.

Wolves, on the other hand, seem to have slightly lost their way since the departure of Nuno Espirito Santos. Will they survive? Well, that's another question entirely. They are certainly not the team they were two seasons ago. After 65 minutes in this game there was only one winner and it wasn't Wolves.

Did you know? No Brentford player registered more clearances (six) and interceptions (three) versus Wolves than Ajer.

Gabriel: Boy, do Arsenal need Gabriel in their team. The hug that took place between Aaron Ramsdale and Gabriel at the end of the game said just how much a second clean sheet in consecutive games meant to Arsenal's defensive unit. Ben White also played his part in a set-up that coped well against Burnley.

The problem for the Gunners is they look miles from where they really should be right now and the biggest culprit seems to be the manager. Mikel Arteta appears out of his depth. He has talented players at his disposal and on occasions against Burnley they showed it. However, it was a set-piece that dug him out of a hole.

Did you know? Gabriel made more clearances (10) and tackles (three) versus Burnley than any other Arsenal player.

Thiago Silva: I half expected Spurs to expose Thiago Silva. He is after all 36. However, after 49 minutes it was Silva who had exposed Spurs. The Brazilian defender is renowned for attacking set-pieces in the opposition penalty area but, alas, Tottenham couldn't have watched the Chelsea video!

Anyone who has seen Chelsea play will know there are a few dangers in the box on set plays and Silva is one of them. In the end, this was men against boys. This Chelsea side is capable of anything this season.

Did you know? Aged 36 years and 362 days, Thiago Silva became the second-oldest Chelsea player to score in the Premier League behind only Didier Drogba, who scored against Leicester City aged 37 years and 49 days in April 2015.

Midfielders: James Milner (Liverpool), Mateo Kovacic (Chelsea), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United)
