PICTURE: United players dominate Team of the Week

WhoScored’s hugely popular Champions League Team of the Week feature returned this morning, and we were awoken by a pleasant surprise for a change; It was dominated by Premier League players, five of which play for Manchester United. De Gea, Jones, Rafael, Rooney and Robin van Persie were all included.

Robin van Persie came away with the highest overall rating for the week after scoring 9.9, which was .1 more than former United player Cristiano Ronaldo, who achieved a 9.8 after bagging a brace.

I’m rather upset that Danny Welbeck didn’t make the team though, as he was absolutely superb. He wasn’t afraid to run at his man, he won his fair share of aerial battles and offered us that bit of a pace on the counter attack which was excellent to watch.
