The English Premier League season 2019-20 began this past weekend on a frankly high note- one that was expected after the sensational transfer period.
Clubs used the transfer window a bit well to revamp their squads and fill in the gaps that were felt in the last season. All the season 2018-19 top-six teams except Chelsea won their opener.
This weekend’s round of action-packed fixtures produced thrills and spills for fans. The weekend also provided a shock upset that could have a massive impact on Frank Lampard’s managerial career.
Manchester United thrashing Chelsea 4-o was the most unexpected occurrence. But it happened!
As usual, the English broadcasting station BBC released their squad of the week through their sports pundit Garth Crooks. But fans took it to social media to air their disappointments with some omissions and inclusions.
Manchester United and Manchester City were the luckiest as three players from their clubs were included;
Check out the reaction to Crooks’ Premier League team of the week:
Auba had one goal lol. Seriously… Could have added awb and zincheko/some other lb to the list

De Brune and Sterling were good but did not play as wing backs. This aint team of the week, just names of the week. You could as well put 2 or 3 goalkeepers. 😀😁😂🤣
