Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has joined two Liverpool players in this week’s WhoScored Premier League Team of the Week.

Smalling has been one of United’s best performers so far this season and he was once again excellent at the back as Louis van Gaal’s men eased to a 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.

It was United’s fifth consecutive clean sheet and Smalling has been a key factor in the Red Devils ever-improving defence with his latest display earning him a place in the Team of the Week.

The England international was joined at the back by Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno after his impressive outing during the Merseysiders 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Moreno was named in the line-up along with team-mate Philippe Coutinho after the Brazilian earned a score of 8.50 – which was the third highest individual score of the entire weekend.

That honour went to Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot after he produced a string of fine saves to help secure a 1-0 win at Bournemouth while Manchester City’s Bacary Sagna also made the cut after helping the league leaders to a 0-0 draw at Aston Villa.

However, there must have been a shortage of star performances up front as WhoScored have strangely named Tottenham’s Moussa Dembele as a central striker after the Belgian midfielder helped Spurs to a 1-1 draw at Arsenal yesterday.
