England’s Weekly winners and losers: Week 12


Harry Kane

Cometh of the hour! With 6 minutes to go against PSV, Tottenham looked like they were out of Europe. Enter Kane whose late brace secured a vital 2-1 win and keeps Spurs in the hunt for the Champions League last 16.

Alex Pritchard

The Huddersfield midfielder grabbed his first goal of the season and almost three crucial points against Watford. Often flying under the radar, Pritchard remains a good prospect in The Terriers midfield and a man whose Premier League future may well be longer than that of his club.

Nathaniel Chalobah

A first Premier League start in 14 months after a broken kneecap, is a huge step in the right direction for the defensive midfield prospect. Clearly a player liked by Gareth Southgate, Chalobah is well suited to the defensive midfield role in England’s 4-3-3 and a run of games for Watford will likely lead to a second senior cap.

Reiss Nelson

Can’t stop scoring in Germany!

Lewis Dunk

A goal and an England call-up! A great week for the Brighton skipper


Danny Welbeck

Poor sod! After coming back from two serious injuries, it seems Welbeck’s Arsenal career may have been ended by an awful ankle break. With Lacazette and Aubameyang both in form, Reiss Nelson scoring for fun on loan and Eddie Nketiah on the rise, this may just be the end for Welbeck at the Emirates.

Adam Smith

A nasty injury for a good right-back playing in an era of great English right-backs.  Smith will be out for a while and with Walker, Trippier, Alexander-Arnold and Van Bissaka ahead of him in the queue, may well find himself one of England’s best uncapped players.
