Let us know your thoughts on our Team of the Week which is deployed in the usual 3-4-3 formation!
Alex Meret – Napoli
Kept a clean sheet against Hellas Verona including an incredible triple save in the first half.
William Troost-Ekong – Udinese
Rarely beaten in defence and limited the impact of Torino striker Andrea Belotti in the game.
Marco Calderoni – Lecce
Exposed the frailties on AC Milan’s right flank and the Salentini left-back scored with a sensational long-range shot to earn a surprising but vital point for his side.
Andrea Cistana – Brescia
One of the main reasons the Rondinelle kept Fiorentina scoreless, nullifying the attacking threat of Gigliati forward Federico Chiesa.
Alejandro Gomez – Atalanta
Another fine performance from the Atalanta captain, providing both energy and creativity, and he scored La Dea’s third goal.
Radja Nainggolan – Cagliari
Thrived in a new role, operating as a right-wing, and opened the scoring for the Isolani against SPAL with a thunderous right-foot strike from distance.
Hakan Calhanoglu – AC Milan
Played arguably his best match for the Rossoneri, scoring with a sensational volley in the first half and then providing the assist for Krzysztof Piatek.
Dejan Kulusevski – Parma
Provided two assists and he also rounded-off the scoring in the Ducali’s 5-1 thrashing of Genoa.
Lautaro Martinez – Inter
Scored twice against Sassuolo, won Inter’s first penalty, and even had a goal disallowed. Lively throughout the match.
Andreas Cornelius – Parma
The Dane replaced the injured Roberto Inglese after 12 minutes and then went on to score a hat-trick in an eight-minute spell against Genoa.
Arkadiusz Milik – Napoli
It was the Polish international that made the difference, scoring both goals for the Partenopei in their 2-0 win against Hellas Verona.
