Brighton are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks following the clash with Swansea City.

Actually Garth is now down as a ‘Football Analyst’ these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performance by Glenn Murray in the four one victory over Swansea City at the weekend at the Amex Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we’ll also not argue with it, selected Murray as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

‘Brighton took three massive points against Swansea, won by the cool dexterity of a 34-year-old striker who struggles to run. Glenn Murray possesses a calm brilliance to his game in front of goal, which has almost certainly provided Brighton with a second season in the Premier League. Well, I got that wrong.’

It’s always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Murray for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.

Full Team:

Claudio Bravo (Manchester City), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Willian (Chelsea), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United), Glenn Murray (Brighton).
