Soccer is coming in thick and fast. This is a very busy time for the premier league, with many teams having 3 matches in 8 days. The busy schedule can also make or break teams, and once we hit January, we get some idea on each team’s hopes of achieving their season objective.
This week’s team of the week is going by the premier league performances on Boxing Day, and the other team’s performances around that date.
Paul Pogba: The big United signing dominated the midfield in Manchester United’s impressive victory over Sunderland. This takes him to an overall rating of 90.
Thiago Silva: Thiago Silva is showing how he is still arguably the best defender in the world. His solid display against Lorient for PSG earns him a 90 rated team of the week card.
Eden Hazard: Chelsea are looking like serious title contenders, it has been win after win for Chelsea and Hazard has been at the heart of that. It’s no surprise to see him make it onto the Team of the week with his exhilarating performance against Bournemouth. What is surprising however is that his TOTW has his position as a Striker, and as an 91 overall. This could be a very deadly option to have upfront for anyone with the cash.
