He may not be good enough for a place in the Spain squad but David De Gea proved again on Saturday he is one of the very best in the Premier League with a resilient display against Sunderland.
Key moment (34’): What a save by De Gea! Johnson picks out Giaccherini, whose bullet header looks destined for the back of the net - but De Gea pulls off perhaps the save of the season so far. Outstanding one-handed stop.
Just seen De Gea's save again. Unbelievably good. Kept us in the game with that save. Best 'keeper in the league by a long way.

DF: James Tomkins, for West Ham v Tottenham (9/10)
It was difficult to pick one man out of the West Ham side, but Tomkins was excellent all game. The defender was solid in the heart of the defence, putting in a number of great blocks throughout the match and won every challenge in the air.
Key moment (13'): Paulinho has a sight at goal. The Brazilian is found by Sigurdsson and looks to go through on goal. His first touch is a good one but Tomkins recovers well to make a sliding challenge.
James tomkins, woahhh, james tomkins, woahhh, he comes from basildon and he's better than upson, james tomkins, woahhh ♥♥♥♥♥

DF: Winston Reid, for West Ham v Tottenham (8/10)
Key moment (66'): GOAL!! West Ham score. Downing’s corner is met by Reid whose initial effort is blocked by Nolan on the line. The defender reacts quickest, though, poking home from six yards to put the visitors ahead.

The Chelsea skipper faces a fight for his place this season but was in impressive form in the 3-1 win away at Norwich to take his place in our Team of the Week.
Key moment (59'): Snodgrass nods a cross into the box looking for Van Wolfswinkel running in with Terry. The Chelsea skipper just gets there first, and penalty claims by the Dutch striker are waved away.
Good decision from John Terry to switch ends after the coin toss...Ruddy having all kinds of problems with the sun

The winger put in a vibrant attacking performance in the away trip to Swansea. Didn't deserve to be a loser for some of the quality and energy he left on the park.
Key moment (54’): Michu can't connect with the Dyer cross. Lovely ball in by Dyer, who has been outstanding today.

The man of the match award could have gone to Suarez or Sturridge, but we gave it to Henderson for contributing to Liverpool's dominance in a first half that provided them with the platform for a well-deserved three points.
Key moment (36’): Jerome can't control the ball on the run as Henderson smuggles the pass back to Mignolet.
Jordan Henderson quietly becoming a colossus I see. #lfc

CM: Oscar, for Chelsea v Norwich City (8/10)
Key moment (4’): OSCAR GIVES CHELSEA THE LEAD! Well, that was worryingly easy. Ba brings down a ball over the top brilliantly, he lays it back to Oscar who shoots first time from the left side of the area, across John Ruddy and into the bottom corner.

CM: Fabian Delph, for Aston Villa v Hull City (8/10)
One of the few players to show any kind of quality in midfield in a mostly awful game at the KC Stadium. A driving force for Villa in the centre of the park, Delph continued his impressive form this season.
Key moment (79’): Delph skips away from a couple of challenges before seeing his shot deflect out for a corner.
Really impressed with Fabian Delph in the Villa midfield yesterday. Outshone Tom Huddlestone. Looks to have come on leaps and bounds.

LM: Adnan Januzaj, Manchester United v Sunderland (9/10)
Key moment (62’): It's 2-1 United and it's Adnan Januzaj again! Nani's cross from the right is only half cleared to Januzaj, who lashes a brilliant volley into the bottom corner! The young lad has turned this game around.
Januzaj could represent 11 countries at international level. Six former Yugoslavian countries & Turkey, Kosovo, Belgium, Albania & England — Simon Clancy (@SiClancy) October 6, 2013

Took his goal well and was a constant threat with his power, pace and clever hold-up play. Negredo continues to impress with his third goal in seven Premier League games.
Key moment (17’): GOAL CITY! Negredo levels immediately with a finish off Howard after a lovely through ball by Toure! Great response!!

ST: Loic Remy, for Newcastle v Cardiff City (8/1)
The Frenchman’s fine start to life on Tyneside continued with a well-taken brace away at Cardiff. He has stepped up hugely for Newcastle with five goals in five games in the league this season.
Key moment (38’): GOAL NEWCASTLE! Remy with an excellent strike from the edge of the box, first time after Marshall batted away Cisse's finish. 2-0.
Oh Remy you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Remy, hey Remy — Leazes Terrace (@LeazesTerrace) October 6, 2013
