not because he had a bad performance though? 

My point is you'd expect a CB being in team of the week when he'd completely shut out his rivals or at least looked solid. Stones was hardly solid as we were penetrating their back four at will for 40 minutes. I mean, what exactly did he do that was so good to be rated the best CB at the weekend?

being able to penetrate the back four isn't all down to CBs though. I get what you're saying but this could also be down to lack of support from midfield (Yaya Toure pretty much gave up on challenging anyone in the 2nd half!) or from the wings because players like Clichy and Sagna get caught too far up the field. It was a very open game though and as a result defences will always be vulnerable. He made one brilliant tackle on Mane or Origi (can't remember which). A sliding tackle which if he got wrong would have resulted in a red card for him or the Liverpool player through on goal.

Fair enough, I'm not saying he had a poor game. I just didn't see him as the standout CB of the weekend that's all. Saying that, I may be biased because I didn't see Silva as the best CM in the same game either. I thought all 3 of ours had better games.

Garth Crooks' Team of the Week

Really surprised there's no Everton players.

Jagielka scores 2 in a week, Lukaku scores 2, Davies & Barkley have great games anyway. Koeman called it the most complete game their team has played.

So Jagielka finally gets into the team of the week, it's only taken three goals in three games to get him there. Funnily enough it was Phil's poorest game of the lot but what can you expect from the utter melt that is calling the shots. 

Jesus Navas at RB and Marcos Rojo on the left - not sure what's going on there. In similar fashion you've got goal machine Son shoved onto the left-wing to accommodate the Arnautovic. Just what the fucking is going on? 

Genuinely baffles me how this tosser has got a job with the BBC. His teams and opinions are riddled with errors every week.

Navas has been playing at RB to be fair.
