Matt Haynes | December 21, 2015
Coral’s team of the week features a number of surprises, with Leicester City top of the Premier League at Christmas and 10/1 with Coral to win the title this term, despite what will be a tough second half of the season in the Premier League.
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris (Tottenham)
The Tottenham custodian did well to keep a clean sheet away from home as a strong Southampton side bombarded the Spurs goal.
Right back: Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)
Taking the lead for Chelsea, the Serbian seemed back to his best as he ensured the Blues went on to win against the Black Cats.
Centre back: Fabricio Coloccini (Newcastle United)
A proper, old-fashioned finish for the Argentine put the Magpies ahead against Aston Villa, with the defender putting in an industrious performance throughout.
Centre back: Craig Cathcart (Watford)
Commanded the Hornets to an inspirational 3-0 win over Liverpool, keeping the defence in check and ensuring his team didn’t concede.
Left back: Charlie Daniels (Bournemouth)
Scoring the winner, Daniels ensured that Bournemouth came away from The Hawthorns with three points after converting a last minute penalty.
Centre midfield: Dele Alli (Tottenham)
Arguably Spurs’ player of the season so far, the midfielder netted in his side’s 2-0 win over Southampton and put in great all-round performance.
Centre midfield: Alexander Tettey (Norwich City)
Instrumental in the Canaries’ terrific 2-0 win over Manchester United, the Norwegian midfielder almost ran the show at Old Trafford and scored a goal.
Right wing: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City)
Leicester’s Algerian attacker bagged a brace for the Foxes as the East Midlands side ran out 3-2 winners over Everton at Goodison Park.
Left wing: Pedro Rodriguez (Chelsea)
Doubled Chelsea’s lead at Stamford Bridge as the Blues beat Sunderland 3-0 in what was a positive showing.
Striker:Harry Kane (Tottenham)
Scored on his 100th appearance for Tottenham as the north London side ran out 2-0 winners over Southampton.
Striker: Odion Ighalo (Watford)
Was outstanding as Watford beat Liverpool 3-0 with the Nigerian striker bagging a brace.
