Arsenal duo Laurent Koscielny and Santi Cazorla have been named in the WhoScored? Premier League Team of the Week following their performances against Everton on Saturday.

Koscielny put in another powerful display at the back and although he wasn’t able to secure a clean sheet, he was involved at the other end as he scored what turned out to be the winning goal with a close range header just before half time.

The Frenchman’s performance earned him an overall score of 8.02 which was enough to see him named in the WhoScored? defence.

Kos was joined in the eleven by team-mate Cazorla after the Spaniard put in another excellent display in the middle of the park on Saturday.

Santi set-up Koscielny’s got with a wonderful free-kick and he registered a score of 8.46, which was the highest score of any midfielder at the weekend.

Olivier Giroud narrowly missed out on a place in the team of the week as his goal-scoring performance earned him a score of 8.3 – which was just beaten by Sunderland’s Steven Fletcher with 8.4.

Mesut Ozil was unfortunate not to be named in the side with a score of 8.3 as it was higher than Erik Lamela’s 7.96. Ozil could easily have been placed on the right wing for the purposes of this team of the week as he always drifts all over the pitch.
