England’s winners and losers Premier League week 5

Winners

Jamaal Lascelles

2 goals in 2 games and leading a stiffening defence. Young and improving and a team captain. England call up next month?

John Stones

It’s been some week for Stones. He doubled his career goal tally on Wednesday and another excellent ball playing display on Saturday. Now he just needs to do it against a side who actually attack.

Jermain Defoe

Finally got going for Bournemouth with a much needed goal that finally put some points on the board for The Cherries. That’s 17 successive seasons he’s scored in- a great stalwart of the Premier League who still looks razor sharp.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

With games against City, United and Liverpool on the horizon it’s looking grim for Palace. But Loftus-Cheek provided a rare chink of light at Selhurst Park, purposeful and threatening he looks the player most likely to end their scoring duck- Christian Benteke take note.

Fraser Forster

Outstanding from Forster- his best performance for 2 years and well timed with Tom Heaton out for a while- may persuade Gareth Southgate to keep calling up 4 keepers at a time.

Losers

Marcus Rashford

He’s allowed one off day! But Rashford looked off the pace against Everton in an odd Man United team display- brilliant start and finish but poor for 70 minutes in the middle. Rashford was hooked after 61 minutes.

Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain

Even when Jurgen Klopp rotated his captain out of midfield he didn’t give the Ox his first Liverpool start. Notably James Milner joined Liverpool to play his preferred central midfield role and ended up at leftback, maybe they should compare notes.

Tom Cleverley

Prior to Saturday he’d had a quietly impressive start to the season, Man City put paid to that. In truth you could point the finger at random at any Watford player but as an experienced head Cleverley should have done better- Will Hughes may be knocking on Marco Silva’s door this week.
