Manchester City Trio In Team Of The Week (27/2/18)

Manchester City Trio In Team Of The Week (27/2/18)

Manchester City are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks following the clash with Arsenal.

Actually Garth is now down as a 'Football Analyst' these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performances by Claudio Bravo, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero in League Cup Final victory over Arsenal at the weekend at Wembley Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we'll also not argue with it, selected the trio as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.


'When a team knows it is playing its second-string goalkeeper in a cup final, nervousness can cut through it like a knife. The way Claudio Bravo handled the occasion against Arsenal was more than impressive. I think a Manchester City Treble might be on here, folks.'


'Vincent Kompany playing in a Manchester City side and winning trophies again after a catalogue of injuries was a sight worth seeing. If ever a player deserves a finale to his career after battling back to fitness on countless occasions, it is Kompany. A rock-solid certainty to be in City's all-time XI.'


'Arsenal were absolutely destroyed in the Carabao Cup final, and it all started with Sergio Aguero bullying Shkodran Mustafi from a goal-kick. I remember the days when strikers were terrified of centre-backs. What happened?'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to all three for their recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course lifting the Cup.

Full Team:

Claudio Bravo (Manchester City), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Willian (Chelsea), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United), Glenn Murray (Brighton).
