Premier League Team of the Week - Sergio Aguero, Andrew Robertson, Bernardo Silva

Sports Mole selects its Premier League team of the week for gameweek 32, including Sergio Aguero, Andrew Robertson and Bernardo Silva.

It is as you were in the Premier League title race after gameweek 32 as both Manchester City and Liverpool picked up victories.

Liverpool left it late to overcome Tottenham Hotspur and regain their two-point lead at the top of the table, although the advantage still rests with Man City, who cruised past Fulham on Saturday and have a game in hand.

While Fulham's fate looks increasingly doomed, Huddersfield Town's is already settled as they equalled an unwanted Premier League record by having relegation confirmed with six matches of the season remaining following a defeat to Crystal Palace.

Chelsea needed a hugely controversial late show against Cardiff City to stay in touch with the top four, and victories for both Manchester United and Arsenal have also left Spurs facing a battle to keep hold of their Champions League place.

Cardiff, on the other hand, are now five points from safety after both Burnley and Southampton won, while there were also wins for Everton and Leicester City.

Here, Sports Mole picks its Premier League team of the week for gameweek 32.


Crystal Palace are the joint best-represented club in this week's team after their win over relegated Huddersfield, but it could have been a different story had Vicente Guaita not made five saves to keep Huddersfield at bay - something which set the foundations for the hosts to go on and win the game in the final 15 minutes.

It was Patrick van Aanholt's goal which finally sealed the three points for Roy Hodgson's side, and while his favoured position is on the left, the level of competition for that position in this week's XI means that he moves over to the right.

Luke Shaw and Lucas Digne were also in the running for the left-back spot, but it goes to Liverpool's Andrew Robertson, who was instrumental in the win over Spurs at Anfield. Not only did the Scot produce an exquisite assist for the opening goal, but he also made a crucial block to deny Christian Eriksen in his own box.

Robertson's teammate Virgil van Dijk was under consideration following another towering display in that match, while Ben Mee and Shkodran Mustafi also deserve honourable mentions at centre-back, but the pairing this week is the goalscoring duo of Kurt Zouma and Wes Morgan.

Zouma set Everton on their way early with a towering header against West Ham United and also kept a clean sheet at the other end, while Morgan's flick for Leicester against Bournemouth was a goal that the very best in the world would have been proud of - if he meant it, of course.

Morgan is one of three Leicester players selected from that 2-0 triumph, with Youri Tielemans strengthening his case for a permanent move by assisting Jamie Vardy's goal while Wilfred Ndidi made a whopping 11 tackles and won five aerial duels to dominate the middle of the park.

Indeed, it is a combative midfield this week with Harry Arter putting in nine tackles of his own and registering an assist against an under-par Chelsea side, only to end up on the losing team in heartbreaking fashion.

Wilfried Zaha's inclusion is perhaps the most contentious in this week's team after he somehow failed to score despite being handed a few clear sights of goal, but he did everything but find the back of the net. That includes winning the penalty which led to the opening goal and then assisting Palace's second too.

It is a Man City duo which completes our XI this week. Sergio Aguero set up Bernardo Silva for the champions' first against Fulham and then the roles were reversed for the second, although Aguero did last less than an hour before being forced off through injury.
