Leicester are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks.

Actually Garth is now down as a ‘Football Analyst’ these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performance by Marc Albrighton in the one nil victory over Norwich City at the weekend at the King Power Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight (and League Cup as he couldn’t leave Man City or Liverpool out could he) over the latest weekend.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we’ll also not argue with it, selected Albrighton as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

‘The quality of crosses from Marc Albrighton was always going to be Norwich City’s undoing. His first-half free-kick which flew across the box unchallenged and grounded keeper John Ruddy should have been sufficient warning. Yet the cross that led to Leicester’s winner was even better. Albrighton completes a magnificent trio with N’golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater in Leicester’s midfield, both of whom have made my team of the week this season. Remember, Albrighton was shown the door at Aston Villa but has re-established himself at Leicester City and his team are currently nine points clear of Manchester City. Not bad for a lad who wasn’t good enough for a team destined for relegation.’

It’s always good to see us represented in this way, and well played to Albrighton for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.

Full Team:

Willy Caballero (Manchester City), Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool), Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea), Lucas (Liverpool), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Ander Herrera (Manchester United), Yaya Toure (Manchester City), Marc Albrighton (Leicester City), Diego Costa (Chelsea), Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United).
