Hull City are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks.

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

The performance by Curtis Davies in the one nil loss to Manchester United at the weekend at the KCOM 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 Davies as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

‘Yet another sterling performance from the Hull City captain Curtis Davies. He has been immense so far this season and it was only down to the brilliance and composure of Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney that he and his team-mates did not share the points with a rampant United. However, Hull and their skipper have only been as good as their caretaker manager Mike Phelan, who has done a remarkable job in extraordinary circumstances. When is the Hull board going to stop faffing about and give Phelan the job on a permanent basis?’

It’s always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Davies for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the point and Hull didn’t get that.

Full Team:

Artur Boruc (Bournemouth), Curtis Davies (Hull City), Scott Dann (Crystal Palace), Wes Morgan (Leicester City), Danny Drinkwater (Leicester City), David Silva (Manchester City), N’Golo Kante (Chelsea), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United).
