Lucas Torreira

Two Arsenal players have been named in the Sky Sports’ team of the week for Matchday 8 games in the Premier League.

Arsenal stars Lucas Torreira and Alexandre Lacazette were selected in the team picked by Sky Sports pundit Danny Mills earlier on Monday.

Torreira and Lacazette were hugely influential for the Gunners as they secured a ninth straight win in all competitions courtesy the 5 – 1 thumping of London rivals Fulham in their Premier League clash at the Craven Cottage.

Uruguay international midfielder Lucas Torreira made his third league start since he joined the club in a £26m deal from Italian Serie A side Sampdoria.

He was very efficient as the screen for the Arsenal back four against Fulham in their London Derby clash on Sunday.

Lacazette put in a MotM performance in the game against the Cottagers.

He scored first two goals to set his side on the way to victory.

The former Lyon striker has now scored four goals and provided two assists in eight league matches.

Team of the Week: Asmir Begovic (Bournemouth); Matt Doherty (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Lewis Dunk (Brighton and Hove Albion), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City); Lucas Torreira (Arsenal), Paul Pogba (Manchester United); Ross Barkley (Chelsea), Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton), Eden Hazard (Chelsea); Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal).
