The 11 players who managed to form the EPL team of the week are listed below, based on player ratings, performance, and results from Match Week 8: 


On Saturday, Chelsea goalkeeper Eduardo Mendy was on hand to put up another strong performance. Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbeumo, for example, were unable to find the back of the net thanks to the Senegalese. 


Due to many high-class performances, the position faced tough competition. The back four, though, were Tino Livramento, Nathaniel Ake, Lewis Dunk, and John Stones. 


Leicester City Belgian star Youri Tielemans maintained with his best form against Manchester United and he has been teamed alongside Kevin De Bruyne and John McGinn in the midfield. 


Aside from defense, the attacking role had a lot of competition as well. Danny Ings, Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah, Harry Kane, and others performed admirably. 

However, Leicester City's Jamie Vardy developed an attacking partnership with Liverpool's Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino. 

With David Moyes as the head coach, the ideal configuration to accommodate the above players is the 4-3-3 formation:
