Ramsdale, Varane, Rice, Cavani, Ronaldo Make Up Garth Crooks’ Team Of The Week

Posted by

Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the table, Manchester United put more pressure on Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo, Crystal Palace stunned Manchester City, and Burnley won their first game of the season.

Check out my team of the week before making your own choices at the bottom of the page.

Goalkeeper: Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal)

Defenders: Marc Guehi (Crystal Palace), Raphael Varane (Man Utd), Gabriel (Arsenal)

Midfielders: Reece James (Chelsea), Declan Rice (West Ham), Conor Gallagher (Crystal Palace), Enock Mwepu (Brighton)

Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd), Edinson Cavani (Man Utd), Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)

Tottenham have lost their way and so have United.

I get the impression that neither of these clubs is concerned with glory at the time, but rather with financial gain. Football owners are no longer necessarily fans. Local fans like Louis Edwards, a local Manchester industrialist, and Irving Scholar, a man whose goals dwarfed even those of Tottenham manager Keith Burkinshaw at the time, have long since left the club. They wanted what the people wanted and were willing to go bankrupt to get it if necessary. Fans will go to any length for their team, while owners will frequently go to any length to increase their profits. They are, after all, businessmen.
