3 months ago

Harry Redknapp has picked his best 11 performers from the weekend’s action.

The Premier League team of the weekend that has most impressed him.

Included in his top 11 are three stand out players from Newcastle United 1 Manchester United 0 on Saturday at St James’ Park.

Harry Redknapp explaining to Betvictor why he chose  this Newcastle United trio amongst his Premier League team of the week:

Jordan Pickford

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Fabian Schar

“I could have picked any of these Newcastle defenders but I thought Schar was outstanding.

“I’ve always liked the lad, what a bit of business he’s been for Newcastle down the years.

“He’s so composed and cruises through a lot of these games, he’s a really consistent player.

“I don’t think people realise how good this bloke is.”

Ben Mee

Tino Livramento

“I couldn’t leave Livramento out of my side, what a week this boy has had.

“I thought he was superb in Paris during the week and backed it up against [Man] United.

“He was very highly thought of at Chelsea and then Southampton and it looks like he’s putting it all together now and has recovered from that bad injury he had.

“I know he can play for a few countries; Gareth needs to be getting on that phone soon!”

Enzo Fernandez

Giovani Lo Celso

Anthony Gordon

“Another week, another Anthony Gordon selection!

“This boy shows no sign of slowing down, I’m loving what I’m seeing from him.

“He’s probably been the form player in the league over the last few weeks.

“You see that desire to get in the box and to get on the scoresheet.

“Eddie deserves credit for adding that to his game.”

Luca Koleosho

Dejan Kulusekvski

Gabriel Jesus
