Premier League Group of the Week: Two Baggies burn Chelsea
The most surprising result of the Premier League weekend was West Brom’s big win over Chelsea, which Stamford Bridge won 5-2 against Thomas Tuchels.
Chelsea actually led in the first half but things fell apart when Thiago Silva showed a second yellow card and was subsequently sacked before half-time.
West Brom took advantage and actually played some sparkling football to end his comeback and eventually score five.
The best player on the pitch and throughout the Premier League weekend was Matheus Pereira (10), who scored a perfect 10 FC rating.
He recorded two goals and two assists that day, his first goal falling over an adorable lob, while the second time he fooled a line of defenders to get the ball back on his left foot and a finish in the bottom Screw corner.
Teammate Callum Robinson (8.8) only came into play in the 37th minute due to an injury, but took his chance and scored two goals from the bench.
Leading the Premier League Team of the Week is Harry Kane, 8.6, who was unlucky not to be on the winning side when he scored two goals for Tottenham in the 2-2 draw with Newcastle.
The first four places are occupied by Diogo Jota (8.7), who has continued his spectacular form recently with two goals against Arsenal. He also won 5/7 duels off the bench during his 30 minutes on the court.
Paul Pogba (8.2) and Tanguy Ndombele (8.0) form the central midfield pair, with the former making the fourth most passes in the last third of each player and making 10 ball restores this weekend.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (7.9) recovered from his omission in the English squad with a support against Arsenal and stepped in as a right-back.
Benjamin Mendy (7.4) surprisingly belonged to the goals of Manchester City against Leicester and played as a left-back.
At the center of the defense are Nathaniel Phillips (7.6), who conceded Liverpool in the Emirates, and Joe Rodon (7.4).
Crystal Palace eventually drew 1-1 late with Everton and thanks Vicente Guaita (8.1) for keeping them in the game as he has made a number of excellent saves as well as eight ball restores.
