Premier League team of the week: Featuring Liverpool, Tottenham, Leicester and West Ham
The Premier League saw a weekend full of goals and a couple of shocks too as Liverpool took another step towards their first title for nearly three decades.
Virgil van Dijk steered the leaders past Brighton and Hove Albion with two headed goals, before forming a rare rearguard action in the dying minutes following Alisson Becker’s red card.
The champions Manchester City could only muster a draw at Newcastle United, where Jonjo Shelvey’s late leveller earned the Magpies a feel-good point.
Arsenal, now under the stewardship of interim manager Freddie Ljungberg, were another of the so-called big six to slip up, drawing at Carrow Road with a determined Norwich City.
It meant Leicester’s last-gasp victory over Everton on Sunday was all the more meaningful as the Foxes established themselves at second in the table.
Take a look at who made our team of the week above.
