My keeper this week, Jason Steele. Jason made a few good saves at the Emirates yesterday, but he’s getting in my side because of his distribution. Some of his passes were fantastic and he showed so much composure throughout, he’s definitely a modern keeper. He’s always been a talented player; it looks like he’s putting it all together.
Kenny Tete has been superb for Fulham all season, and he was at his best against Southampton. His energy was fantastic and defensively, not many get the better of this lad. I think he’s one of the best right-backs in the league.
I loved what I saw from young Levi Colwill against Arsenal. He’s what I would call a Rolls-Royce of a defender, I think he’s got so much potential. He’s got a lovely foot and he’s quick, strong and so composed with the ball at his feet. Obviously, he’s on-loan from Chelsea and Brighton would love to sign him permanently, that will be difficult though.
Raphael Varane was back in the United side, and I thought he was fantastic against Wolves. We all know what a top-class defender he is and he strolled through this game. He makes such a difference to this United side, there’s not many better in world football when he’s fit and at his best.
Pervis Estupinan has been in my side quite a few times this season and no wonder, he’s been a brilliant signing. He was at his best against Arsenal, getting an assist for the opener before sealing it with the third goal. To show that level of energy that late in the game to get on the end of the rebound sums him up, a brilliant left-back.
Raheem Sterling is in my side this week, that was much better from him. It’s been a difficult season for Raheem but his performance against Forest was what we expect from him. His second goal was a lovely, composed finish. Whoever the Chelsea gaffer is next season, they’ll want more of this from Raheem.
Douglas Luiz has been playing brilliantly of late for Villa. This lad is so classy on the ball and never gives it away, he’s vital for Villa. That was a big win for them at the weekend and his free-kick deserved to be the match winner. What a fantastic job Unai Emery is doing.
My star man this week is one of the easiest picks this season, Ilkay Gundogan. What a player and what a performance that was! Two fantastic goals and an assist, he always seems to deliver in the biggest games for City. That first goal was just brilliant, I’m not sure what was better, the touch or the finish. He’s been such a great servant for City, they’ll be desperate to keep him for another season.
Eberechi Eze has been playing brilliantly since Roy Hodgson took over, and he was outstanding at the weekend. Roy clearly knows how to get the best out of his lad, and when he’s on it, what a talent he is. His second goal summed up, he’s got so much class and quality with the ball at his feet. He seems to glide across the pitch and defenders can’t get near him when he’s in this mood.
Brentford’s great season shows no sign of slowing down and Bryan Mbuemo was at the heart of it. Brentford seem to have West Ham’s number and they never looked back after Mbuemo’s opener. I’ve always liked him, he’s versatile and his pace and quality always make him a real threat.
Taiwo Awoniyi’s double at Stamford Bridge means he makes my side for two weeks in a row. We saw again what a huge threat this lad in the air and he made those two headed goals look easy. He’s becoming Forest’s talisman and with two massive games to go, they’ll need him to keep this form up.
