Premier League Team of the Week — Round 35 (video)


Sunderland may not be known for their defense, but two of the Black Cats’ stalwarts have been named to the Premier League Team of the Week for Round 35.

Chelsea midfielders Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas also make the cut, as the duo looked like the star performers we saw last season in the Blues’ win over Bournemouth.
