Garth Crooks’ Team of the Week: Kompany, De Bruyne, Salah, Hazard, Zaha, Giroud

 Manchester City were finally crowned Premier League champions after Manchester United lost at home to West Brom.

Crystal Palace and Huddersfield earned crucial wins in their battle to beat the drop, Burnley kept up their European charge, while Arsenal slumped again to Newcastle.

Chelsea came back to beat Southampton, Swansea shared the points with Everton and Liverpool put three past Bournemouth.

But who did enough to make my team of the week?

Goalkeeper – Ben Foster (West Brom)

Where was the Manchester United that blasted Manchester City off the park last week?

While you ponder that, the save by Ben Foster from Romelu Lukaku’s header was nothing short of magnificent. This performance by the Baggies was also an enormous statement for new manager Darren Moore. Whether West Brom survive the drop or not, the players appear committed to a man who lives and breathes Albion.

Beating United and handing City the title – what a way to start your managerial career.

Did you know? Foster made four saves against his former club.

Defenders – Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Kevin Long (Burnley), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City)

Trent Alexander-Arnold: I said a few weeks ago that the Champions League fixture against Manchester City would be a massive test for full-backs Andrew Robertson and Alexander-Arnold.  More:
