Victor Valdes has been named in WhoScored.com's Premier League Team of the Week for the second time this season.

The Spanish stopper was in fine form as he celebrated his 35th birthday on Saturday, making five saves as Boro earned a 0-0 draw at Vicarage Road.

WhoScored.com uses more than 200 individual statistics to offer insight on matches across Europe. Valdes had previously been in WhoScored's weekly XI after Boro's 0-0 draw at Arsenal in October.

Saturday's result was Valdes' fifth clean sheet for the club since joining last summer, while The Mirror recently revealed that the former Barcelona man has conceded the fewest goals (3) of any Premier League goalie from his last 22 shots faced.

Boro are yet to concede a goal in the first three matches of 2017 in all competitions, a feat matched only by Spurs in the top flight.

The Teessiders also boast the fourth-best defensive record in the Premier League across the campaign.
