A surprising team of the week after Round 12 of the Premier League, as big-hitters such as Manchester City and Liverpool, who faced each other, don't have anyone in our starting XI, which is made mostly up of high performers from midtable outfits.

The best player of the week was Gerard Deulofeu (8.7) who scored and set-up a goal for Watford as they defeated Norwich 2-0 at Carrow Road.

The best-represented team is Everton who have Lucas Digne (7.5), Mason Holgate (7.7), and Tom Davies (7.8) featured after their 2-1 away victory at Southampton. Chelsea and Leicester have two players each.

The only player in the line-up who actually didn't win his match this weekend is Brighton goalkeeper Matthew Ryan (7.8), who was on the losing side against Manchester United but who kept the scoreline down with a series of saves.

Joining Deulofeu in the forward line as Adama Traore (8.2), who completed more dribbles (10) than anyone else in the league this round, and Anthony Martial (8.4), who assisted two goals versus Brighton.
