So this week was … eventful.
Saturday was flooded with goals – 30 in just eight games – and there were some crackling matches to enjoy. Liverpool beat Arsenal 4-0 and Manchester United were beaten so hard by Watford that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was out of work less than 24 hours later.
Sunday was not half bad either, with Man City revealing Everton and Tottenham enjoying their first win of the Antonio Conte era.
Here is this week’s team for 90 minutes for match day 12.

– Trent Alexander-Arnold (@TrentAA) November 20, 2021
Emiliano Martinez (GK) – Excellent saves for denying Leandro Trossard and Tariq Lamptey should help Martinez rediscover his best form for Aston Villa.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB) – Two more assists for Alexander-Arnold, who already has six for Liverpool this season.
Thiago Silva (CB) – Antonio Rudiger came on the goal record for Chelsea, but it was Silva who stole the show. He was defensively excellent in the 3-0 win over Leicester and pulled off some outrageous passes.
Tyrone Mings (CB) – A goal and zero for Mings against Brighton, what more could you ask for?
Sergio Reguilon (LB) – Joao Cancelo’s assist almost gave him a place in this team, but Reguilon wins after his decisive goal against Leeds.

N”Golo Kante (CM) – Against his previous employers, Kante was absolutely dominant. He collected ball possession for Chelsea as always, but left his mark with a wonderful goal from within reach.
Rodri (CM) – Speaking of wonderful goals from within reach, Rodri could have taken Jordan Pickford’s head off with his violent effort.
Billy Gilmour (CM) – Gilmour ran the show when he returned to Norwich’s starting line-up. How Daniel Farke could not fit him in his plans is anyone’s guess.

Raheem Sterling (RW) – In the midst of all the uncertainty about his future, Sterling made an excellent display when City beat Everton 3-0.
Emmanuel Dennis (ST) – Every Watford forward could have come into this team for the ruthless way they took apart Man Utd, but we have chosen Dennis, whose tireless work was rewarded with a goal late.
Sadio Mane (LW) – Inspired by the line between Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta, Mane continued with a goal and an assist in the 4-0 victory over Arsenal.
