Various leagues return to action once again including the French Ligue 1, the Team of the Week after Round Ninth (9th) have been revealed based on the highest-scored statistics.

Seven different sides see their players featured in this week's team with the most from Paris Saint-Germain, Toulouse, Stade Rennais and Olympique de Marseille, as Monaco's hat-trick hero Wissam Ben Yedder takes home the Player of the Week award.

Argentine and PSG skipper Lionel Messi remains the only consistent player so far this term - made 8 features, the most by any other player following his stunning free-kick against OGC Nice at Parc des Princes.

Algeria and Toulouse's 19-year-god hot prospect Fares Chaibi emerged as the only featured African player after contributing twice [a goal and an assist] in Montpellier's defeat at home.
