Argentina firepower and South Korean swagger: Premier League team of the week

Aguero and Higuain share five goals between them for Manchester City and Chelsea while Son steps up in Kane's absence

"Perfect", was how his manager described him. Sergio Aguero proved the scourge of Arsenal once again as the Manchester City striker gave a masterclass in finishing from close range on Sunday.

The Argentine needed less than a minute to open his account with a superb diving header before rounding off his treble with two poacher's tap ins.

Joining him up front in this week's team of the week is his compatriot, Gonzalo Higuain, who capped a stunning home Premier League debut for Chelsea with two goals in the 5-0 win over Huddersfield Town. His second goal is one that will live long in the memory.

Son Heung-min continues to be invaluable for Tottenham Hotspur in their quest to make it a three-horse title race.

The South Korean's contribution since returning from Asian Cup duty in the UAE has been two goals in as many matches, the latest a rather fortuitous winner against Newcastle United.
