Marco Silvestri – Hellas Verona (2 Team of the Week appearances)
Denied Federico Bernardeschi in the first half and made a string of excellent saves near the end of the match. He made a double-save from Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata, then stopped a Juan Cuadrado effort.
Danilo D’Ambrosio – Inter
Had a comfortable match against Genoa. Started attacks from the back and scored the Nerazzurri’s second goal.
Matteo Lovato – Hellas Verona
The 20-year-old showed maturity beyond his years and he did not seem overawed by the Juventus attack.
Maya Yoshida – Sampdoria
The Japanese veteran used his experience to best effect and comfortably dealt with Atalanta’s attacking threats.
Jakub Jankto – Sampdoria
Played out of position but performed his role admirably. Wasn’t reluctant to track back, assisted Morten Thorsby for the second Doriani goal, and scored the third after initiating the counterattack from his defence.
Gaetano Castrovilli – Fiorentina (2 apps)
Directly involved in all three Gigliati goals, scoring twice and assisting for Nikola Milenkovic.
Luis Alberto – Lazio
Was back to his creative best in the Biancocelesti midfield and scored the opening goal for his team.
Filip Djuricic – Sassuolo
Involved in some exciting attacking moves for the Neroverdi and scored their first goal with a delicate back-heel.
Romelu Lukaku – Inter
Created a reference point in attack and scored a well-taken goal after running onto a Nicolo Barella pass.
Andrea Belotti – Torino
Hassled and unsettled the Sassuolo defence all game, scored the Granata’s second, and assisted for Sasa Lukic.
Rafael Leao – AC Milan (2 apps)
Was a dominant force on the left-wing for the Rossoneri, providing the assist for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s first goal and also setting up Alexis Saelemaekers.
