There’s no dire need for a Dier or a Dyer when it comes to this week’s Premier League team of the week, as both Swansea’s Nathan Dyer and Tottenham’s Eric Dier are celebrated for their work on the pitch in Matchday 2.

Joining them are Chelsea backstop Thibaut Courtois, who blanked Leicester City along with defender Branislav Ivanovic.

Aston Villa’s Alan Hutton gets a sentimental nod for starring in two clean sheets over two weeks, as he helped Aston Villa earn a point against Newcastle, while Sunderland’s Lee Cattermole gets named for his work in the 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

A pair of West Ham players are recognized for their 3-1 thumping of Crystal Palace, as Stewart Downing and Mauro Zarate join another pair of London players, Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud and Nacer Chadli, on the list.

Hull’s Tom Huddlestone rounds things out as the Tigers now have four points from two matches.

    Jovetic scored a brace against Liverpool. He should be in instead of Giroud
