Mohamed Salah's sensational debut season in England continues to gather pace after the Egyptian notched up his 32nd strike of the campaign in Liverpool's 2-0 Premier League win over Newcastle United on Saturday.

The winger superbly controlled Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's pass before firing through the legs of Martin Dubravka to open the scoring for Jurgen Klopp's side at Anfield.

Two Swansea City players make the best XI as the South Wales club's revival under Carlos Carvalhal saw them move out of the relegation zone courtesy of a rout of West Ham United.

Jordan Ayew converted the penalty that his brother, Andre, had won to seal the 4-1 win, after midfielder Ki Sung-yeung had opened the scoring.

Ki isn't the only South Korean in the team this week, with Tottenham's Son Heung-min taking the wide left berth after a two-goal salvo against Huddersfield Town.

An unfamiliar backline sees Jack Butland of Stoke City in goal following a string of fine saves to deny Southampton, while Matthew Lowton (Burnley), Shane Duffy (Brighton), Adrian Mariappa (Watford) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (Manchester City) form the rearguard.

Ilkay Gundogan cements his place after setting a new Premier League record of number of passes in Manchester City's win against Chelsea while Brighton's in-form Glenn Murray completes the front two following his goal in the win over Arsenal, the south coast club's first over a top-six side.
