It was another big weekend of football across Europe, with several high-profile matches played.

There was the frenetic draw between Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League. The fraught Madrid derby between Real and Atlético Madrid, which ended goalless. The Derby della Capitale, in which Roma beat Lazio 3-1. And Bayern Munich suffered a shock 2-0 defeat to Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga.

There were, however, several other entertaining games across the Continent and that made picking our European team of the weekend tricky.

But in the end we settled on those who made the biggest impact on their sides.

Leading the team are Lorenzo Pellegrini, who scored and assisted in that win for Roma, and Alfreð Finnbogason, the Augsburg striker who netted a hat-trick as his side clinched a 4-1 win against Freiburg in the German top flight.

Let us know if we have missed anyone out of our XI. Tweet us at @FB_Whispers with you suggestion.
