Who were the standout players in the Premier League this weekend? Sol Bamba picks his best XI.

There were plenty of star performers in the Premier League over the weekend and it was up to Bamba to pick his best line-up.

Everton and Southampton registered much-needed wins, Manchester United produced a hard-fought victory over Tottenham and West Ham overcame their London rivals Arsenal to list just a few of the intriguing stories which came out from the latest round of fixtures.

I thought he was absolutely magnificent against Tottenham and over the years he’s been the best goalkeeper in the Premier League. He showed that on Sunday.

Defence

Van Dijk is the best centre-half in the Premier League for me, no question about it. Zouma has been doing very well over the last couple of weeks but yesterday. With the goal as well, his performance means he deserves to be in there.

Alexander-Arnold for me is the best right-back in the country and for his age as well he’s been doing very well. Robertson for me is the best left-back. You always know what he will give you and will always give eight out of ten.

Midfield

  • Declan Rice – 54
  • Mohamed Salah – 74
  • Paul Pogba – 51
  • Christian Eriksen – 60
  • Heung-Min Son – 34

Rice, I love him. For me he’s a very good holding midfielder. Salah has obviously been very good and he scored. Pogba is full of confidence at the minute – no question for me. An excellent, very good player. He did very well even if they did lose the game against Tottenham. Son has been the player of the season for me so far.

Bamba said: “Rashford has been excellent for me so far.”
