Premier League Team Of The Week: Round 3

Every week, Goal.com's Alan Dawson picks out the best performers in the Premier League...

After the third weekend of the new edition of the Premier League two of the nation's top four dropped points meaning no club will go into the international break with a 100 per cent record.

Prior to the weekend's play Hull City had been the surprise promotion package and maintained their eyebrow-raising form with an opening scalp of visiting Fulham, and then a score draw when travelling to Blackburn. Wigan Athletic brought the east Yorkshire outfit back down to Earth though with a resounding five-nil trashing on Saturday.

Shaun Wright Phillips enjoyed a prolific homecoming and bagged a brace in front of the rapturous away support at Goodison. Paul Ince's return to Upton Park on the other hand was not as welcoming and he was forced to watch on as his Rovers crashed out to West Ham United.

Portsmouth, Arsenal, and Manchester City added to the weekend's impressive goal routs by handing out three-nil wins to Everton, Newcastle, and Sunderland respectively.

This week's line-up reverts back to a traditional 4-4-2:

Goalkeeper

Robert Green (West Ham United): Is often overlooked by many an England coach, and is even cited as a goalkeeping culprit whom concedes unforced errors. His performance today though was sound: one penalty save; an intuitive Emerton block (with his feet); combined with some good handling and a confident command of his area, are all the necessary ingredients in ensuring the visiting Blackburn Rovers couldn't find their way back in the game.

Defenders

Gael Clichy (Arsenal): A stereotypical Clichy performance. Ran well, was never afraid to bomb forward, and his understanding with fellow Frenchman Samir Nasri is flawless. Considering the age of this dynamic left-flank pairing, and providing Arsene Wenger keeps the duo at the Grove, then Arsenal fans may well see a partnership that will rival Cole and Pires'.

Matthew Upson (West Ham United): It was his defensive partner Calum Davenport who scored the Hammers' first goal, but it was Upson who proved to be the rock at the back: intercepting and tackling well all game.

Micah Richards (Manchester City): Last season Richards attracted many admirers and countless plaudits, but the tutelage of Richard Dunne was often seen as the main reason why the England hopeful blossomed. Last weekend though it was Dunne who was found to be slipping up, and Richards who was cleaning up the errors.

Glen Johnson (Portsmouth): Got forward well for the goal, linked up well with fellow England international Jermain Defoe, and helped Pompey keep a good clean sheet away from home.

Midfielders

Sunli Tuncay (Middlesbrough): Could strike a formidable understanding, and partnership, with Afonso Alves. Enjoys coming through the middle to score.

Vincent Kompany (Manchester City): Looks like a good buy for Mark Hughes, and with so many other clubs (Tottenham, Arsenal) pursuing a defensive midfielder it appears like an even bigger coup. Does not look out of his depth in a league, and a position, that requires mental toughness and physicality. Shrugged off challenges with skill and flair.

Antonio Valencia (Wigan Athletic): Scored well, had outstanding box-play, and showed up new-boys Hull City on countless occasions.

Shaun Wright Phillips (Manchester City): Played like he never left. If he carries this form on then he will play himself into the England fold - something he was never going to do at Chelsea. Scored twice, deservedly.

Attackers

Robin Van Persie (Arsenal): His delivery was far, far greater than it was at Craven Cottage last week. He not only converted a text book penalty, but also finished well for his second. Showed great skill and flair throughout, was unfortunate not to bag his first Arsenal hat-trick, but was subbed early due to a hamstring strain.

Amr Zaki (Wigan Athletic): Another great performance from the Egyptian striker. Found the net twice for Athletic - his second was a rocket. He assisted Valencia well.

Honourable Mentions

Aside from tripping over the ball Afonso Alves looked dangerous for Middlesbrough and capped his performance with a sublime free-kick. Jermain Defoe was unlucky not to make the first team too, for bagging a good brace for Portsmouth - he found space from nowhere to claim his first. In one of the most snooze-inducing matches of the new campaign Javier Mascherano managed to elevate himself ahead of his peers in a goal-less draw against Aston Villa. Jussi Jaaskelainen ensured a point for Bolton Wanderers with some good goalkeeping heroics. Cesc Fabregas also showed just how much Arsenal miss his creativity in front of an appreciative Emirates stadium, whilst former Gunner Ashley Cole nearly ousted Gael Clichy for the first team spot, but will have to remain content with an honourable mention for his forward runs at Stamford Bridge. Fellow Chelsea star Belletti also had a good game in an unfamiliar role in a Chelsea shirt, managed to get his name on the scoresheet, and was then duly rewarded with an over-zealous Scolari who couldn't help but repeatedly pat Belitti on the gluteal.
