Tammy Abraham, Sadio Mane and three Norwich heroes: Premier League team of the week

Richard Jolly selects his best XI from the fifth round of fixtures from the English top flight

There were big shocks in the Premier League this past weekend, but none were more seismic than Norwich City's win over champions Manchester City.

While Teemu Pukki was terrific in grabbing what proved to be the winning goal, behind him was the class of Emi Buendia in midfield and the stoic performances of Sam Byram and Tim Krul in goal as the Canaries secured a 3-2 victory over Pep Guardiola's side.

There was plenty of goals elsewhere, too. Tammy Abraham continues to justify Frank Lampard's faith in him after grabbing a hat-trick in Chelsea's 5-2 win away to Wolves while Sadio Mane and Son Heung-min grabbed a brace each in Liverpool and Tottenham wins over Newcastle United and Crystal Palace respectively.

Harry Maguire responded to the taunts of Leicester City fans by marshalling an excellent Manchester United rearguard effort while Lewis Cook marked his first start following nine months on the sidelines with a fine display in Bournemouth's home win over Everton.
