Each week BetVictor Brand Ambassador Harry Redknapp picks his Premier League Team of the Week, made up of the players who impressed the most from the previous gameweek.
We all know how good this lad is between the sticks. He was called into action a few times yesterday and always looked assured. Declan Rice will be disappointed with his penalty, but Henderson got down well and can be more than happy with a clean sheet on his home debut.
What an evening that was for Brentford fans. They were just terrific against United. First to every ball, they showed great hunger for the full 90 minutes. I thought Ben Mee was terrific. He’s got plenty of experience and looks like a very shrewd signing. And he got his goal as well, which is no surprise as he’s always a threat when he ventures up there.
Wolves were lucky to earn a point at home to Fulham. A lot of that was down to some excellent defending and goalkeeping. I thought Max Kilman was a rock at the back. He came under pressure a few times but kept his head and helped earn his side a clean sheet.
This lad can play. What a strike that was for Chelsea’s opener. Any striker would’ve been proud of that. He looks comfortable playing out from the back, something I thought Chelsea done really well yesterday. He looks a good fit, definitely one to keep an eye on this season.
Another Brentford player who I thought was excellent on Saturday was Josh Dasilva. De Gea had a nightmare for his goal, but if you don’t shoot, you don’t score. He worked ever so hard all afternoon, one of a few top performances for Thomas Frank’s side.
Kevin De Bruyne
This man just gets better. Clinical in front of goal, and his passing is just on another level. That finish with the outside of his boot was just brilliant. He reads the game so well and, for me, is the real focal point in this Manchester City side.
This guy gets a lot of stick, but I thought he was terrific for the Gunners on Saturday. His assist for the opener was a lovely little cushioned effort, and he took his goal well, despite the Leicester keeper having a bit of a nightmare. On his day he’s a top player, and he should be feeling good after that performance.
Jensen stood-out for me for Brentford on Saturday night. He plays a big part in their high press, which is so important to their style of play. His goal came about from a calamitous error from United, but he still had to stick it away, and he made it look easy.
Leeds have done well to hang onto this lad. He’s a top player and showed his class yet again. His runs from deep cause defenders all sorts of problems, and he always finds space. That’s the mark of an intelligent player. I love watching him play.
His opener at the Emirates was out of the top drawer. He’s the type of player that probably does that day in, day out on the training ground, so it’s great when they come off on the park. His second was more instinctive, a proper striker’s goal. He looks at home in this Arsenal side, this could be a big season for him.
What a day that was at the City ground. A brilliant atmosphere, and this lad was a handful all day. I’m not surprised to see him amongst the goals after watching him in Germany last season. He certainly knows where the goal is. If he can get similar numbers at Forest, he’ll be a huge player for them this season.
