Kepa Arrizabalaga
22-year-old Kepa Arrizabalaga impressed for Spain earlier

Another week of LaLiga football brought with it more goals, last-ditch challenges and, surprisingly, less refereeing controversy. Real Madrid dropped points, Barcelona did not, but there were plenty of other success stories around the division that deserve our due attention.

Goalkeeper - Kepa Arrizabalaga (Athletic Bilbao)

The 22-year-old was excellent during the summer for Spain's under-21 side in Poland, helping that team to the final, and after a nervy opening performance against Getafe he appears back to his steady self.

Kepa made some key saves as Athletic scraped their way to an arguably undeserved three points against Eibar on Sunday evening, ensuring that the likes of Kike Garcia and Sergi Enrich were suitably frustrated. His reflexes were razor-sharp, with Kuko Ziganda having the youngster to thank for his first three league points as Los Leones boss.
