Premier League gameweek 33 results:

Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Premier League Team of the Week for gameweek 33. The formation usedis 4-2-4.

Goalkeeper: Alex McCarthy (Southampton)

Alex McCarthy was simply outstanding between the sticks as he single-handedly won the game for Southampton against Manchester City.

The England international kept a clean sheet and made six outstanding saves to deny the Citizens from finding the back of the net and helping his side to a narrow 1-0 triumph.


Right-back: Emil Krafth (Newcastle United)

Emil Krafth has been struggling with injuries since joining Newcastle United from Amiens last summer. However, the Swedish full-back played the full 90 minutes of the Magpies’ 2-2 draw with West Ham United and provided the assist for his side’s first goal, which was scored by Miguel Almiron.


Centre-back: James Tarkowski (Burnley)

The big English centre-back is having a great season at the heart of Burnley’s defence. James Tarkowski was brilliant at both ends of the field in the 1-1 draw against Sheffield United as he scored for his side and also managed the highest number of tackles in the game (2).


Centre-back: John Egan (Sheffield United)

The Republic of Ireland international, who is playing his first full season in the Premier League, has impressed many with his positioning and no-nonsense defending. John Egan scored his first-ever goal in English top-flight against Burnley to help his team to a 1-1 draw. Besides the goal, the centre-back also managed the second-highest number of passes in the game (38).


Left-back: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)

The Chelsea captain, who started as a left-back against Watford, put in a flawless performance as the Blues won 3-0 and maintained their two-point lead over fifth-placed Manchester United. Cesar Azpilicueta helped keep a clean sheet and also provided a last-minute assist for Ross Barkley’s goal.


Central midfielder: Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)

Bruno Fernandes was on song again as Manchester United thumped Bournemouth 5-2 to keep the pressure on Chelsea in the Champions League qualification race.

The Portuguese maestro scored from a beautiful free-kick and also provided an assist as the Red Devils marched on. Bruno now has six goals and five assists in just nine Premier League appearances.


Central midfielder: Ross Barkley (Chelsea)

Ross Barkley is finally showing consistency, something which was always expected from him. The former Everton midfielder scored a goal and provided a cheeky assist for Olivier Giroud’s goal as the Blues beat Watford 3-0 to remain two points cleat at fourth place.


Right-wing: Mason Greenwood (Manchester United)

The versatile youngster, who can play as a striker or a winger, was in rampaging mood against relegation-threatened Bournemouth. Playing on the right-wing, Mason Greenwood scored two neat goals and was a constant threat to Bournemouth’s defence.

The 18-year-old has made 26 Premier League appearances this season, starting just seven times, but he has still found the back of the net eight times.


Left-wing: Leandro Trossard (Brighton and Hove Albion)

Leandro Trossard, who joined Brighton from Genk last summer, helped his team to a crucial victory over Premier League’s rock-bottom side Norwich. The Belgian was a constant threat to the Norwich City defence and scored the only goal of the game as the Seagulls edged out the Canaries 1-0.


Striker: Jamie Vardy (Leicester City)

The Leicester City hitman finally broke his duck in front of goal and scored his much-awaited 100th Premier League goal for the Foxes, with Jamie Vardy netting his 101st as well in the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

The win helped Leicester City to consolidate on their third-place standings, while Vardy moved two goals clear in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.


Striker: Anthony Martial (Manchester United)

Anthony Martial just can’t stop scoring and assisting since the restart. The Frenchman, whose fortunes have changed under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, was in electric form in Manchester United’s 5-2 win over Bournemouth.

Martial scored a stunning goal from outside the box, earned a penalty and won a free-kick, which were converted by Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes respectively.
