Lowton In Team Of The Week (6/3/18)

Lowton In Team Of The Week (6/3/18)

Burnley are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks following the clash with Everton.

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

The performance by Matt Lowton in the two one victory over Everton at the weekend at Turf Moor 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 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 Lowton as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

'What a ball from Matthew Lowton for Ashley Barnes to put Burnley back on level terms against Everton. It needed something a bit special from Burnley at the time. The full-back was in great form and has been for most of the season for the Clarets. Everton boss Sam Allardyce, on the other hand, must be careful. He is losing matches and the support of a number of Toffees fans. The same thing happened when he was at West Ham and that eventually ended in tears.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Lowton for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.

Full Team:

Jack Butland (Stoke City), Matt Lowton (Burnley), Lewis Dunk (Brighton), Adrian Mariappa (Watford), Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur), Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Andre Ayew (Swansea City), Leroy Sane (Manchester City).
