Whose assist was out of this world? Garth Crooks’ team of the week

This is one adorable extension!!

Two unlikely goalscorers helped title contenders Liverpool and Manchester City out of scrapes in the Premier League this weekend.A Leicester defender set his team on the way to a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace and third place, while a Newcastle midfielder joined him in my XI after his brilliant strike and good display in the 3-2 win at West Ham.Here’s my team of the week – have a read and select your own below.

Goalkeeper – Ben Foster (Watford)

Foster: I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it. Ben Foster was almost as impressive in the opposition’s penalty area as he was in his own. The former England international was in inspiring form and kept Watford in the game against a rampant Chelsea in the 2-1 defeat. His saves from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic were outstanding and how Foster got his hand to Mason Mount’s power-drive I will never know. However, it was Foster’s jaunt up front in the last minute of the match that deserved more. His header produced the most spectacular save from opposite number Kepa Arrizabalaga in the Chelsea goal. Had Foster scored he would have had every right to retire. Did you know? Foster made more saves (eight) than any other Premier League goalkeeper this weekend.Defenders – Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Steve Cook (Bournemouth), Caglar Soyuncu (Leicester), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

Robertson: It’s looking ominous now. Liverpool’s last-minute victory, set up by Andy Robertson’s brilliant header, is what titles are made of. I remember this club dominating the scene during my own playing days – they did it then by wearing the opposition down and providing the killer touch in the dying seconds, and they are doing the same thing again 25 years later. For Robertson to find himself so high up the pitch at that stage in the game, only to be found by the most exquisite ball from Sadio Mane, says it all. Liverpool mean business. Did you know? Robertson has scored two goals in his last six games for Liverpool in all competitions – one more than in his first 88 appearances for the club.Cook: Steve Cook was unlucky not to make my TOTW last week after his header against Watford hit the bar. The Bournemouth captain marshalled his troops magnificently against what was a rather insipid Manchester United performance, matched only by their characterless away shirt
