Tue, 10 May 00:59:00 2011

Ryan Giggs's superb performance against Chelsea earns him a place in our Premier League XI alongside two Manchester United team-mates.

Team of the Week: Glorious

GK: Ben Foster (Birmingham City) - The keeper ended up on the losing side against Newcastle, but he pulled off several astonishing saves to give Birmingham half a chance.

RB: Sylvain Distin (Everton) - A goalscoring performance from the back from the Frenchman as he helped get one over his former employers Manchester City.

CB: Nemanja Vidic (Manchester United) - Yet another commanding display from United's skipper as they moved to the brink of a record 19th title.

CB: Chris Samba (Blackburn Rovers) - The imposing defender was immense in keeping Blackburn in the game with a series of commanding challenges and last-ditch tackles to keep West Ham at bay.

LB: Phil Bardsley (Sunderland) - The full-back was integral to the win over Bolton, heading off the line in injury time before the Black Cats went up the other end and grabbed a late winner.

RM: David Silva (Manchester City) - The Spaniard was at the centre of most of City's creative play and with a moment of pure class set up Yaya Toure for their goal.

CM: Leon Osman (Everton) - Scored the winner against City at Goodison Park to cap a sterling display in the Toffees' midfield.

CM: Ryan Giggs (Manchester United) - Yet another imperious performance from the veteran. Having an even better season than when he was named Player of the Year.

LM: Maxi Rodriguez (Liverpool) - A second hat-trick in as many weeks to take his tally to seven goals in his last three games. Thriving alongside Luis Suarez and Dirk Kuyt.

FW: Javier Hernandez (Manchester United) - The lively Mexican's goal after just 36 seconds provided the springboard for United's march to victory over Chelsea.

FW: Steven Fletcher (Wolves) - An all-action display from the Scot, crowned by two goals in a crucial victory over West Brom in the Black Country derby.
