TOTW 5 PREDICTION
Not the most exciting team of the week this week but there is one or two meta players that could feature, like a second inform for Upamecano which would please those of you who did the Mukiele objective.
GK – Mendy – Chelsea – with another clean sheet for the new signing from Rennes, its looking increasingly more difficult for Kepa to regain the number 1 spot.
4 fantastic saves including a superb stop from a late attempt by Marcus Rashford kept the score vs Manchester United at 0-0.
CB – Ginter – Borussia Mönchengladbach – an incredible diving header from Ginter 7 minutes from time gave Mönchengladbach all 3 points.
CB – Upamecano – RB Leipzig – Leipzig came from a goal behind to secure the win vs 10 man Hertha with Upamecano recording his first goal since 2018.
With unusual grace for a CB Upamecano glided past two Hertha defenders and fired home from a tight angle.
CB – Akanji – Borussia Dortmund – opened the scoring during Dortmunds 3-0 win vs Schalke in the 55th minute with a close range right footed strike following a corner.
CM – Alberto – Lazio – Alberto took advantage of a pedestrian Danilo dispossessing the Brazilian before powering home an unstoppable strike past Bologna GK Skorupski.
CM – Paulinho – Guangzhou Evergrande – the former Brazilian International contributed 1 goal and 2 assists during their 5-0 win over Hebei CFFC.
RM – Edin Višća – İstanbul Başakşehir – the Bosnian has been in fine form so far this season and added 2 goals and 1 assist to his tally, I expect to see him feature quite often in future TOTW squads.
RM – Politano – Napoli – it was Politano who shone in the battle between the Insigne brothers who both got on the scoresheet for their respective clubs.
Politano though stole the show with 2 superb assists.
ST – Lewandowski – Bayern Munich – another hat-trick for the Polish striker who also became the first player in Bundesliga history to score 10 goals on the first 5 rounds of matches.
ST – Zaha – Crystal Palace – was unplayable at times in Palaces 2-1 win over neighbours Fulham.
Zaha added his 5th goal of the season and provided an assist for Riedewald.
ST – Kean – PSG – grabbed 2 goals against Dijon and seems to be far more suited to life in Ligue 1 than he was to Premiership football.
Hes almost scored as many goals this season than he did in his entire previous season.
LB – Renan Lodi – Atheltico Madrid – wasn’t involved in the game for long but did provide an assist for Suarez to provide Madrids second goal.
