The 2020/21 Premier League season is now more than a quarter of the way through (already?!) and every performance is increasingly important as the table begins to take shape.

Here's a look at 90min's Team of the Week from gameweek 10 of the campaign...

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Illan Meslier

Illan Meslier (GK) – The 20-year-old’s saves gave Leeds the platform they needed to secure a narrow win over Everton at Goodison Park and a second clean sheet in a row.

Darnell Furlong (RB) – Got forward to good effect from his wing-back role as West Brom finally got a first win on the board since their return to the Premier League.

Kyle Bartley (CB) – The Baggies captain was another who shone in that victory, really showing his defensive quality and aerial ability to snuff out any Sheffield United chances.

Conor Coady (CB) – Marked his return to action with a superb performance to help Wolves secure an away win over Arsenal. More impressive given the switch to a flat back four.

Marcal (LB) – Starting his first Premier League since the opening weekend of the season didn’t prove to be an issue for the Wolves left back and brought refreshing solidity to the team.

2. Midfielders

James Ward-Prowse (CM) – Southampton were leading Manchester United 2-0 at half-time because of his set-pieces, with one assist from a corner and one free-kick goal.

Moussa Sissoko (CM) – The Frenchman has become a key component of the Tottenham midfield, showing excellent awareness and discipline in his team’s 0-0 draw with a previously rampant Chelsea.

Kevin De Bruyne (CM) – The Belgian bagged two assists as Manchester City scored more than a single goal in a Premier League game for the first time in two months.

3. Forwards

Edinson Cavani

Riyad Mahrez (RW) – A hat-trick hero for Manchester City in their crushing win over Burnley and he was much more clinical and improved than in recent weeks.

Edinson Cavani (ST) – The veteran Uruguayan came off the bench to make all the difference for Manchester United, scoring twice and assisting another in a 3-2 comeback win.

Jack Grealish (LW) – Probably unfortunate to end up on the losing side this week, with Aston Villa narrowly succumbing to West Ham. He continues to make his team far better.
