The English Premier league week six matches will be kicking off this coming weekend and different teams will be facing their various opponents. With stats after the week five matches where Chelsea are at the top of the table followed by Manchester United and Liverpool, here is so far the impressive starting eleven of the season.

Goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy (Chelsea)

The Senegalese international in four matches he has played this season has kept three clean sheets, making 16 important saves which is also the highest of all others despite him not playing on Sunday against Tottenham.

Defenders:

Duffy (Brighton)

Duffy has also been outstanding since the start of the season, helping Brighton record 12 points in five matches. They are currently at position 4.

Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea)

Rudiger is this season the best defender in the premier league, proving his worth in the matches he has played since Thomas Tuchel took over Chelsea.

Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool)

The Dutch international missed the whole of last season but his return has brought a positive impact to the reds, helping them record four clean sheets and remain unbeaten with 13 points.

Midfielders:

Paul Pogba (Manchester United)

With 7 assists in just five matches, Paul Pogba seems like he is back into his original form after some struggles in the recent past. He is the best play maker in the league currently.

Jack Grealish (Manchester City)

Grealish since joining Manchester City from Aston Villa has helped Pep strengthen his squad despite the numerous injuries. City are fifth with 10 points.

Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)

With four goals, the Portuguese International is now the English Premier top scorer this season in level with Mohamed Salah and Antonio Michael.

Said Benrahma (West Ham)

Benrahma is also another player to praise this season. He has recorded three goals and two assists in five matches for West Ham.

Attackers:

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

Last season was not good for Liverpool but this time round things are working out for them. Salah has so far scored four as Liverpool are second at the table.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)

The goat has scored in every game he has featured for United this season. In two matches, Ronaldo has managed three goals.

Romeru Lukaku (Chelsea)

The Belgium International was all that Chelsea needed after Timo Werner failed to impress last season. Lukaku has three goals in five appearances for Chelsea.
