English Premiership Team of the Week 2:

1. Tim Howard (Everton) - Chelsea's Asmir Begovic was good but conceded three, Howard's save before his side took the lead set the path for his team-mates to follow.

2. Matteo Darmian (Manchester United) - The Italian defender does his job and does it well and gets his first inclusion in the Sport24 Team of the Week.

3. Nacho Monreal (Arsenal) - Keeping Zaha and Bolasie at bay is no easy feat but Monreal looked assured at left back in a great game against Crystal Palace.

4. Ashley Williams (Swansea City) - Williams was a rock at the back for the Swans and sneaks into the side ahead of Smalling (Manchester United) and Stones (Everton).

5. Vincent Kompany (Manchester City- Two games, two goals and two clean sheets ensures Kompany keeps his spot in this prestigious side.

6. Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) - Ozil was fantastic against Palace, misplacing just 1 of his 55+ passes all afternoon.

7. David Silva (Manchester City) - The City vs Chelsea clash was billed as David Silva vs Eden Hazard...Silva delivered several knockout punches to win in a unanimous decision!

8. Yaya Toure (Manchester City) - Toure was included in last week's side and is one of several stars to retain their place in Week 2 and rightly so, the City midfielder looks back to his brilliant best. 

9. Ross Barkley (Everton) - Barkley has started the season with a bang and was a key part of the Everton side which ripped Southampton apart. His goal was the fitting end to a fantastic afternoon for the Toffees.

10. Jefferson Montero (Swansea City) - Somehow excluded in Week 1, Montero was impossible to leave out this week. Superb performance from the Ecudorian against a pretty woeful Newcastle side.

11. Romelu Lukaku (Everton) - Better than his Belgian colleague at Liverpool (Benteke) this week, Lukaku looks to be a man on a mission this season...
