European Team of the Week: Foden stars, Arsenal miss out

Every week, we will bring you the best performers across Europe's top five leagues (English Premier League, German Bundesliga, Spanish LaLiga, French Ligue 1 and Italian Serie A) using the unique WhoScored ratings system.

The ratings are based on a comprehensive algorithm that uses Opta data during live matches, with more than 200 raw statistics, that gives us a single rating from 1-10 (1 being bad; 10 being excellent) weighted according to a player's influence within a game.

Find out more about how the ratings are calculated at WhoScored here. Here are the top players from the last round of action, with no representatives from Arsenal (despite a 6-0 win over Sheffield United) showing how tough a place in the XI can be -- and, for the record, Kai Havertz missed out by 0.01 of a mark.
