EPL Worst Team Of The Week Including Man United, Arsenal & Leicester players

Published

on

The English Premier League did not fail to deliver after a long international break period. Gameweek 12 produced loads of goals (35 goals in total) and some exciting results for football lovers to enjoy.

 

 

 

 

The outcome of the weekend’s results meant that Chelsea maintained their spot at the top of the table, while Liverpool and Manchester City kept in touch.

 

 

Like we do after every weekend, we will now review some of the worst performances from players and try to make a starting lineup out of them.

From back to front, here we go…

Karl Darlow (Newcastle United)

 

 

Brentford had just 4 shots on target but managed to score 3 goals against Newcastle on Saturday. Perhaps the goalkeeper is a major reason why the Magpies are swimming in relegation waters this season. He has to do better in games like this if they want to survive. (Rating – 3/10)

Harry Maguire (Manchester United)

 

 

Maguire shot his team in the foot yet again with another shambolic performance at the back. United had already conceded two goals when he went ahead to receive a second yellow card, ultimately handing Watford the advantage in the match. (Rating – 3/10)

Daniel Amartey (Leicester City)

 

 

The Ghanaian international had no answer to Chelsea’s relentless attack. His only contribution to the match was his silly yellow card in the first half. (Rating – 3/10)

Michael Keane (Everton)

 

 

Keane was one of the worse players on the pitch in Everton’s heavy defeat at the Etihad stadium. The English defender struggled all game to cope with Raheem Sterling, but could only watch on as his team conceded three goals. (Rating – 4/10)

Aaron Wan Bissaka (Manchester United)

 

 

Man United’s loss to Watford turned out to be the final nail in the coffin for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he was sacked after the match, but players like Wan-Bissaka certainly did not help his cause with his performance on the day.

 

 

The former Crystal Palace defender lost out on three of his duels and failed to record a single dribble, while his 72% pass accuracy was the worst out of any outfield United player to have featured for the full 90 minutes.

His terrible display led to a 4-1 defeat at the hands of relegation sitting Watford. (Rating – 2/10)

Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City)

 

 

Kante bossed the midfield against Leicester while Wilfred Ndidi struggled to cope with his predecessor. Kante ran rings around the Super Eagles midfielder who looked lost for most of the 90′ minutes. (Rating – 4/10)

Boubakary Soumaré (Leicester City)

 

 

Soumaré star partnered Wilfred Ndidi in the middle of the park but was outclassed by the quality in Chelsea’s midfield. The French midfielder could have done better by tracking back for Kante’s incredible solo goal. (Rating – 3/10)

Nuno Tavares (Arsenal)

 

 

Before the game against Liverpool, Tavares had boasted that he was going to handle the threat of Salah effectively. However he failed to keep track of the Egyptian winger on the left flank, who escaped his sight to get on the score sheet. (Rating – 5/10)

Jadon Sancho (Manchester United)

 

Sancho was expected to get his first goal contribution against relegation sitting Watford this weekend. However, he was tamed throughout the 90′ minutes by Adam Masina on the left flank. (Rating – 3/10)

Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)

Ronaldo was anonymous for most parts of the defeat to Watford. The five time Ballon D’or failed to show his qualities when it mattered most as Claudio Ranieri’s side beat them emphatically. (Rating – 3/10)

Alexander Lacazette (Arsenal)

Lacazette was another anonymous performer for his team this weekend. The French forward made no single impact in the defeat to Liverpool. His performance was so bad to the point his coach had to take him off midway through the second half. (Rating – 4/10)

In a 3-4-3 formation, below is a starting lineup of the worst performing players from the English Premier League this weekend.
