After an eventful week 8 of football, My11 take a look at the best eleven for the just concluded week from the 3 leagues we cover – the English Premier League, the Spanish La Liga, and the Italian Serie A.
For this week, we will be looking at the 3-4-3 formation.
Fernando Pacheco | He was outstanding as Alaves played out a 1-1 draw against Barcelona. The Catalan giants had 10 shots on target, but the Spaniard was not moved.
Ola Aina | The Naija star was in fine form, as he helped Fulham win their first 3 points of the season, scoring a spectacular goal and also keeping a clean sheet.
Kyle Walker | The right-back scored the only goals as Manchester City defeated Sheffield United and also keeping a clean sheet. The England international did not abandon his defensive duties, winning 2 tackles and 3 clearances.
Leonardo Spinazzola | He scored the first goal as Roma defeated Fiorentina at the weekend, and had a game-high of 6 interceptions, more than any player in the match. He also kept a clean sheet.
Thomas Partey | The Ghanaian was a solid rock in the middle of the park as Arsenal defeated Manchester United at the Old Trafford, and he won the man of the match. He won 4 tackles and 2 interceptions and had a 93% pass completion rate.
Maxime Lopez | He had a brilliant performance as Sassuolo shocked Napoli at the San Paolo Stadium and he scored a solo goal, tearing Napoli’s defense apart. He put on an impressive shift offensively and defensively. 95% of his passes were completed.
James Ward-Prowse | For a defensive midfielder to score 2 freekick goals and also provided an assist, Ward-Prowse deserves to be here. He was vital for Southampton beating Aston Villa away from home.
Youri Tielemans | Tielemans did not put up his perfect midfield shift in Leicester's win away to Leeds United, but his forward run produced fruit, as the Belgian scored 2 of the 4 goals scored by the Foxes.
Cristiano Ronaldo | In his absence due to COVID-19, the Turin giants have struggled and were playing 1-1, the Portuguese came on and he scored 3 minutes later before scoring his second goal 17 minutes later. In 35 minutes of play, he had more shots on target than any player on the field.
Karim Benzema | The big French striker has had a torrid season in front of goal, but he scored 2 goals and provided an assist as Real Madrid put 4 past Huesca. No player had more shots, shots on target, and key passes than Benzema.
Willian Jose | He scored 2 goals as Real Sociedad defeated Celta Vigo away to go top of the La Liga table. All his 3 shots in the match were on target and 2 of them hit the back of the net.
