Three Olympique Lyon players have been named in Ligue 1’s team of the week. OL beat Paris SG 2-1 over the weekend, handing the latter their first ever league defeat of the 2018/19 season, and that fine result has seen goalkeeper Anthony Lopes and forward Moussa Dembele being named by L’Equipe in their XI for this game week. OL coach Bruno Genesio was also chosen as the paper’s Manager of the Week.
Cesc Fabregas scored his first goal for Monaco over the weekend, thus helping ASM win at Stade Louis II for the first time in Ligue 1 this season. It’s earned Fabregas a TOTW nomination along with club mate Alexandre Golovine.
PSG normally dominate the list, but don’t have a single representative this week.
The most number of players come from Lille, who beat Nice 4-0. Goal scorers Nicolas Pepe and Jonathan Bamba find a mention, as does left back Youssuf Kone. Reims’ stunning 2-1 win over Marseille sees them have representatives in the form of central defender Yunis Abdelhamid and attacker Tristan Dingome.
Ligue 1 Team of the Week: Lopes (Lyon); Zeffane (Rennes), Hilton (Montpellier), Abdelhamid (Reims), Kone (Lille); Pepe (Lille), Golovine and Fabregas (both Monaco), Dingome (Reims), Bamba (Lille), Dembele (Lyon)
