Martinez was in goal as Aston Villa got their first clean sheet of the season with Emiliano Buendia also in the starting eleven. Both players have been selected for the Argentina national team for September’s World Cup qualifying matches.

After making his Tottenham debut in their 1-0 win vs. Manchester City, Romero was rested, reportedly as a precaution for their second match of the season vs. Wolves.

Alexis Mac Allister’s heroics in Brighton’s opening match of the season earned him a place in the starting eleven vs. Watford. The Argentine had come on as a substitute and scored the match winner for Brighton in the first match of the season but was unable to score in the second match. However, good news for Alexis was that Brighton managed a 2-0 win vs. Watford as they’re now on six points to start the season.
Manuel Lanzini was an unused substitute for West Ham in their 4-1 win vs. Leicester City.
