Football matches over the weekend was just as exciting and provided us with plenty of goals and talking points.
Futbalgalore.com rounds up the best performers from the past weekend in its Team of the Week.
Our Team of the Week will see a 4-3-3 formation deployed.
Theophilus Afelokhai [Enyimba]
The Enyimba shot-stopper was in fine form to thwart Djoliba attackers. Much like he has before, Afelokhai frustrated the Malians with a number of brilliant saves. Excellent.
Sincere Seth [Yeni Malatyaspor]
One of many Yeni Malatyaspor players to have impressed against Fenerbahce. It would not have been inappropriate to select more of their defenders in this team. Looked almost impermeable at the back, and also looked more than capable with handling the added threat by the visitors. Superb.
Leon Balogun [Brighton & Hove]
The tenacious defender was called upon for his Premier League debut after 20 minutes and he passed the test. He was imperious in defence. His terrier-like approach became more important as the game wore on and his teammates tired. Solid.
Yisa Anifowoshe [Primeiro de Agosto]
The central defender was impressive in a 1-1 draw with Etoile Sportive du Sahel in Sousse. Anifowoshe joined in attacks whenever he could and never looked in danger of finding himself exposed defensively. Firm.
Godswill Elohor [Hacken]
In a game which saw most of the Hacken players drift in and out of the action, Elohor was a rarity in that he was consistent throughout. A powerhouse in defence. Menacing.
Ogenyi Onazi [Trabzonspor]
His performance was tireless, as was that of every player in a Trabzonspor shirt on the night as the hosts won 3-1 against Sivasspor. Determined.
Wilfred Ndidi [Leicester City]
His work rate was phenomenal and much needed as Leicester City deservedly won 2-0 against. He put in a monumental shift defensively, but also looked to join in as his side counterattacked. Electric.
Alex Iwobi [Arsenal]
The Nigeria international was handed a starters shirt in the London derby. Iwobi was a thorn in the side of the Chelsea’s defence. Continued to be lively and eventually added a sublime goal of his own. Exclusive.
Henry Onyekuru [Galatasaray]
The former Eupen striker hit the ground running at his new club. Difficult to stop at the best of times, the forward was inexorable and stood out like a beef steak at a veggies’ barbecue scoring the lone goal as Gala pipped Goztepe 1-0. Exciting.
Stanley Awurum [Varzim]
The forward had the run of the game screaming down the wing like a Jet Harrier about to take off, scoring the winner with a beautiful header. He could not have played much better in the battle at Leixoes. Classy.
Stephen Odey [FC Zürich]
A man of the match performance from the Nigerian, who scored a brace. Ran the Concordia Basel defenders ragged and they just couldn’t handle his trickery for his first, while his second was classy. Special.
