Sane In Team Of The Week (6/3/18)

Sane In Team Of The Week (6/3/18)

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 Chelsea.

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

The performance by Leroy Sane in the one nil victory over Chelsea at the weekend at the Etihad 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 Sane as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

'When I watch Leroy Sane I try to assess which other 21-year-old would get into this particular Manchester City side. There can't have been many. Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or maybe even or a young Cesc Fabregas. However, Sane is in that class and against a very tactical Chelsea the Germany international made a dogged affair look occasionally interesting.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Sane for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.

Full Team:

Jack Butland (Stoke City), Matt Lowton (Burnley), Lewis Dunk (Brighton), Adrian Mariappa (Watford), Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur), Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Andre Ayew (Swansea City), Leroy Sane (Manchester City).
