The La Liga Team Of The Week for Week 3 of the Spanish 1st division was an easy choice. Considering the results and the environments the TOW had to perform in, there is no doubt that the runaway Week 3 winner of the La Liga Team Of The Week is:
Villarreal Club de Fútbol
The team known as The Yellow Submarine can no longer be considered a surprise to anyone. They certainly aren’t as historic or as popular as Real Madrid or Barca but their form right now is much better and they may have the best chemistry of any team in Europe. Tuesday, they earned a tough 0-0 draw at Old Trafford against the defending European champs in Champions League group play, then traveled to Numancia and beat a spirited side (and last week’s TOW) 2-1 with goals in the 2nd half by Santi Cazorla & Joseba Llorente. 4 points from 2 road games including a clean sheet against Man U, that’s impressive. Manuel Pellegrini has this side confident and looking like a team with a trophy in mind. Its still early to crown them anything but they are damn good. So good that they are La Liga’s Team Of The Week.
