Premier League flop team of the week for matchday 9
The Premier League flop team of the week comprises of players who failed to put in impressive performance during the weekend. Players that guilty of penalties, players that scored own goals or those that generally put in a lacklusture perfomances are included in the team. Players from the supposedly big teams are the most affected.
Manchester United unsurprisingly have the highest number of representatives in this team with eight played after their embarrassing defeat to Liverpool, Tottenham, Norwich and Everton have one representative each.
Here is Premier League flop team of the week.
Goalkeeper: David De Gea (Manchester United)
David De Gea makes it to the flop team of the week after letting in five goals at home to Liverpool. Tim Krul let in seven goals against Chelsea but made eight saves to prevent the scoreline from getting more embarrassing.
RB: Seamus Coleman (Everton)
The Everton skipper was all over the place as Everton collapsed late in the game to lose 2-5 at Goodison Park to Watford.
CB: Harry Maguire (Manchester United)
After a poor performance against Leicester City in Matchday 9, Maguire put in another terrible performance against Liverpool. The goalkeeper was completely exposed.
CB: Ben Gibson(Manchester United )
With Norwich City 5-0 down, Ben Gibson committed a second bookable offense and got himself sent off to compound Norwich City miserable outing.
LB: Luke Shaw (Manchester United)
Luke Shaw ended last season as one of the best left back in the Premier League but the fullback has been underwhelming so far this season. He was poor against Liverpool with Trent Alexander-Arnold having much joy passing through his wing
CM: Paul Pogba (Manchester United)
Pogba was brought in just after half time to help United salvage some positives but his only contribution was to get sent off for a horrific tackle on Naby Keita
CM: Fred(Manchester United)
Fred alongside McTominay offered close to nothing in the midfield against Liverpool. The Manchester United midfielder was brutally exposed
CM: Scott McTominay (Manchester United)
The Scot usually turn up in big games but he was very poor against Liverpool offering no defensive shield alongside Fred. Liverpool completely bossed the midfield area.
RW: Mason Greenwood (Manchester United)
Greenwood put in an underwhelming performance against Liverpool. The attacker completed zero dribble, zero tackle, zero duel won and had only 19 touches of the before going off at the halftime.
ST: Harry Kane (Tottenham)
The England international poor start to the season continues with a subpar outing against West Ham. Kane had only 35 touches of the ball in 90 minutes, he created zero chances and only had an attempt on target.
LW: Cristiano Ronaldo(Manchester United)
The Manchester United legend scored the winner against Atalanta in the Champions League but wasn’t able to turn in such performance against Liverpool. He had only 40 touches of the ball against Liverpool, 1 shot on target, 2 offsides and committed a cynical foul on Curtis Jones and was lucky to escape with a yellow card.
