Sigurdsson In Team Of The Week (12/2/18)

Sigurdsson In Team Of The Week (12/2/18)

Everton are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks following the clash with Crystal Palace.

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

The performance by Gylfi Sigurdsson in the three one victory over Crystal Palace at the weekend at Goodison Park 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 Sigurdsson as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

'Everton boss Sam Allardyce made his feelings known about his side's performance against Arsenal last week. They were in a very different mood against Crystal Palace. Gylfi Sigurdsson didn't play against the Gunners but the Iceland international pulled Palace apart with the support of Wayne Rooney. Allardyce appreciates Goodison Park is a fortress for the team, and just as well because Everton's away form this season has been abysmal. However, what Allardyce has done is get Sigurdsson playing again. With a little bit of luck, the Everton boss might make a captain out of him. If Allardyce can accomplish that, Everton will have produced something quite special in Sigurdsson, and I dare say their away form might improve as well.'

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

Full Team:

May Ryan (Brighton), Pablo Zabaleta (West Ham United), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur), Jose Izquierdo (Brighton), Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton), Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City), Marko Arnautovic (West Ham United), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool).
