Recall that Thiago Silva scored the first goal for Chelsea during the London derby. Antonio Rudiger also found the back of the net with an amazing shot from an open play. Also, Marcos Alonso played excellently during the London derby. This explains why the three defenders earn spots in the Premier League's best XI of the week.

Many would have expected the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo who bagged his third goal in the English Premier League to be in the team of the week but he couldn't earn a spot in the matchday 5 Premier League XI. This is because only the best performing player for each of the positions makes the team of the week. Tossard of Brighton Hove Albion and Toney of Brentford edged out Ronaldo in the forward position with 8.5 and 9.3 ratings. (See  Premier League Best XI of the week below)

Arsenal star, Odegaard also made the team of the week after scoring the lone goal in Arsenal 1-0 victory over Burnley. It seems Chelsea currently has the best defense In the English Premier League with three defenders earning spots in the Premier League's best eleven of the week. Also, Chelsea has conceded just one goal which is only from the penalty spot this season.
