Premier League Team of the Week: Arsenal, Chelsea and Wolves stars hit the Matchweek 7 headlines

MF: Thomas Partey (Arsenal)

Arsenal won the midfield battle and the game at Old Trafford on Saturday with new signing Thomas Partey the standout player. The £45million man was brilliant throughout the match alongside Mohamed Elneny in the middle of the park. Was ranked first for the Gunners in touches, possession won, tackles, interceptions and dribbles completed. What a bug the Ghana international is already proving to be.

MF: James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)

Southampton are now flying after a dodgy start and a lot fo that is to do with the form of skipper James Ward-Prowse. The midfielder once again put in a top performance in the 4-3 win at Aston Villa, scoring two pinpoint free kicks and setting up Jannik Vestergaard’s opener – all on his 26th birthday.

MF:  Daniel Podence (Wolves) 

Rayan Ait-Nouri may have grabbed the headlines with his debut goal but Wolves’ standout player against Crystal Palace was Daniel Podence. The attacking midfielder was a thorn in the side of the Eagles all night and topped of his display with an assist and first goal of the season.

MF: Hakim Ziyech (Chelsea)

Chelsea fans had been waiting to see Hakim Ziyech start his first Premier League game and they were not left disappointed following his performance in the 3-0 win at Burnley. The Morocco international caused the Clarets all kinds of problems and opened the scoring on 26 minutes. Then – to top off an impressive full debut in the top-flight – the ex-Ajax star set up Timo Werner for the Blues’ third goal.
