Arsenal have three players in the rankings, but pride of place goes to Ludogorets hat-trick man Claudiu Keșerü.

Arsenal inflicted a worst-ever European home defeat on Eintracht Frankfurt on matchday one, that 3-0 success sending the Gunners' Emiliano Martínez, Calum Chambers and Bukayo Saka into the first UEFA Europa League Team of the Week of 2019/20

However, the Premier League stars may have been outshone by Bulgarian champions Ludogorets, who beat CSKA Moskva 5-1. Romanian striker Claudiu Keșerü collected the match ball for his three goals on the night, and he joins team-mate Anton Nedyalkov in the all-star XI.
