Ideye makes EPL team of the week

13 February 2015, 12:15

London - Nigeria international striker Brown Ideye has been named in the Barclays English Premier League team of the week for the first time after his sensational display on Wednesday night helped West Bromwich Albion record a 2-0 win over Swansea City at the Hawthorns, SuperSport reports.

Ideye scored one and provided the assist for the other as the Baggies won comfortably and he has now been rewarded with a place in the prestigious team of the week.

The 26-year-old was one of two WBA players named in the list (defender, Craig Dawson was the other).

Robert Green of Queens Park Rangers was selected as the best goalkeeper of match day 25 while the four defenders who made the cut are Dawson (WBA), Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal), Cheikhou Kouyate (West Ham United) and Marcos Rojo (Manchester United).

Four midfielders were selected; Samir Nasri (Manchester City), Leroy Fer (Queens Park Rangers), Nemanja Matic (Chelsea) and Mesut Ozil (Arsenal).

The two strikers selected are Ideye and fearsome Tottenham Hotspur forward, Harry Kane.

Ideye was rated 8.5 for his showing on Wednesday, even higher than Kane who was rated 8.2.

Only three other players in the list; Laurent Koscielny (8.7), Samir Nasri (8.8) and Leroy Fer (8.6) scored higher than Ideye.
