Who joins Sturridge and Fabregas in the team of the week?

Cesc Fabregas Spain

Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Aston Villa, Southampton, Chelsea, Swansea City and Liverpool stars all feature.

There were some superb individual performances from the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.

There were also plenty of talking points with Manchester United instantly falling behind their main rivals while Chelsea looked imperious against Burnley away from home.

Here is our team of the week.

GK – Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur)

Lloris looked to be in great form against West Ham United making the right decisions at the right times, which allowed his team to secure a narrow win.

RB – Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur)

Dier started in the middle of Tottenham’s defence but showed the ability to play at right-back and also kept his composure to score the winner for Spurs.

CB – Philippe Senderos (Aston Villa)

Senderos was superb for Villa in a difficult environment at Stoke City. Stoke is one of the hardest places to go and play in the Premier League.

CB – Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa)

Vlaar put his body on the line against Stoke and made a superb block at one point to keep his team ahead.

LB – Gael Clichy (Manchester City)

Started on the right for City against Newcastle but features on the left in our team of the week. He made it very difficult for Newcastle to build any momentum.

RM – David Silva (Manchester City)

We had to fit him in somewhere. He looked close to his best form against Newcastle and protected possession well throughout the game.

CM – Victor Wanyama (Southampton)

Wanyama was brilliant against Liverpool and can consider himself unlucky to have been on the losing side. He never stopped running, working hard and trying to close down the space around Liverpool’s key players.

CM – Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea)

Fabregas ran the show against Burnley in Chelsea’s 3-1 win. He looked comfortable with the pace of Premier League football and will be a vital player for the Blues this season.

LM – Gylfi Sigurdsson (Swansea City)

He was up for the challenge and task of playing away at Manchester United and was superb in all parts of his game whether going forward or in defence.

ST – Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)

He seemed to enjoy being the main man against the Saints and playing through the middle of the attack, scoring Liverpool’s winner.

ST – Diego Costa (Chelsea)

For a player who has never graced the Premier League, he looked very comfortable against Burnley. Power, pace and a killer instinct in front of goal.
