GK: Ben Foster (Birmingham)

Made a series of great saves and was dominant in his area as he prevented Wolves from handing out a derby thrashing.

RB: Alan Hutton (Tottenham Hotspur)

An unfashionable pick, maybe, but Hutton was probably the best of the bunch in a game with more excitement than quality as Spurs held Chelsea.

CB: Nemanja Vidic (Manchester United)

A colossus at the back as United kept a clean sheet against a previously free-scoring Arsenal.

CB: Nedum Onuoha (Sunderland)

After switching from right-back following an injury to Anton Ferdinand, Onuoha was brilliant in holding back Fulham.

LB: Patrice Evra (Manchester United)

The opposite of Arsenal counterpart Gael Clichy, the Frenchman was strong in the challenge, clever in possession and incisive in his decision-making.

RM: Marc Albrighton (Aston Villa)

Electric from start to finish and set up both goals in the win against West Brom with inch-perfect crosses.

CM: Yaya Toure (Manchester City)

The midfielder produced a stunning finish for the opening goal and provided the driving run for the second in a supreme all-round display against West Ham.

CM: Stuart Holden (Bolton Wanderers)

The American's superb winning goal capped an all-action midfield performance in the win over Blackburn.

LM: David Silva (Manchester City)

The Spaniard was in fine form and set up Adam Johnson for City’s third with a wonderful pass.

FW: Stephen Ward (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Was a constant menace to Birmingham from wide and through the middle, working hard and impressive with his delivery.

FW: Roman Pavlyuchenko (Tottenham Hotspur)

The Russian cuts a frustrating figure at times but he took his goal exceptionally well and worked surprisingly hard.
