First up is the defender cards, with both cards coming from the Liverpool set-up following their 9-0 thrashing of Bournemouth, ultimately ending with Scott Parker’s sacking.
Trent Alexander-Arnold flew straight back into form for the UF users that held his trust in him, landing a 14-point haul thanks to his goal, shot on target, two tackles and a clean sheet bonus.
Virgil Van Dijk lines up next to him, claiming 13 points after finding the net as well on Saturday afternoon.
The midfielders are up next, with two surprising cards returning to form for their UF Users.
After missing the first two gameweeks due to injury, Harvey Barnes bounced back to scoring ways at the second time of asking as he halved Chelsea’s lead on Saturday afternoon in the second half.
The 24-year-old landed 13 points for his efforts, after recording a goal and three shots on target for the Foxes at Stamford Bridge.
With Leicester facing a challenging handful of fixtures against Manchester United and Brighton in the coming days, it would be a surprise to see Barnes back in the TOTW soon.
Talking of Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes makes his first Team Of The Week appearance this season.
The Portuguese midfielder landed 13 points against the Saints, mostly thanks to his winning goal against Southampton in the early Saturday kick-off.

Next up is the forward card and this week’s declared King Of The Week, as Bobby Firmino absolutely demolished Bournemouth over the weekend.
The Brazilian forward was the unexpected star for Liverpool on Saturday, as he played a play in FIVE goals at Anfield.
Firmino chalked up a whopping total of 34 points, recording two goals, three assists and four shots on target.
It was a remarkable return from him and it will take a performance of epic magnitude to beat that score this season.
In our flex spot is another forward, as Erling Haaland recorded his first Premier League hat-trick at the expense of Crystal Palace.
The former Dortmund recruit was pivotal in helping Man City come back from 2-0 behind to eventually winning 4-2, as he landed 27 points against the Eagles thanks to his three goals and three shots on target.
Haaland is yet to fall victim to ‘Pep Roulette’, but with a busy few weeks scheduled in, it’s likely he could be benched at least once in the near future.
The final card to feature in Gameweek 4’s star line-up is the Team card, with Liverpool breezing into the top slot after their emphatic win over Bournemouth.
The Reds picked up 19 points in total, thanks to their win, nine goals, two saves and a clean sheet.
There were a couple of honourable mentions that just missed out on the Team of the Week, with Tottenham’s Harry Kane picking up 22 points after scoring a brace at Nottingham Forest, Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard delivering once again as he landed 13 points against Fulham and Liverpool’s Kostas Tsimikas recorded 11 points partly thanks to his two assists on the day.
