GK: Tim Howard (Everton)

Chelsea could have enjoyed a higher margin of victory but Howard helped keep them to a narrow 2-1 win.

RB: Emmerson Boyce (Wigan)

The defender found himself on the scoresheet and also kept Aston Villa quiet in a 3-0 win for his side at Villa Park.

CB: Ashley Williams (Swansea)

The burly centre back kept Dimitar Berbatov quiet with a commanding display at the heart of the Swansea defence and left the Fulham forwards feeling very disgruntled at full-time.

CB: Nemanja Vidic (Manchester United)

A fine performance against West Brom from the defender, who is still feeling his way back to fitness after a lengthy injury.

LB: Kyle Naughton (Tottenham)

The full-back was an attacking threat but also a considerable barrier to Sunderland's ambitions at the back. A very promising performance.

MF: Aaron Lennon (Tottenham)

More than just pace. He was a creative force throughout the match, and grabbed the crucial goal to boot in a 2-1 win at Sunderland.

MF: Tom Cleverley (Manchester United)

The midfielder displayed a wide range of passing and control, linking up well with Shinji Kagawa and Danny Welbeck in the first half particularly.

MF: Frank Lampard (Chelsea)

The skipper produced an inspired performance for his side from the heart of the midfield, with two well-taken goals to show for his display against Everton.

FW: Edin Dzeko (Manchester City)

Made the most of a rare start with two early goals and led the line superbly throughout as City win 4-3 at Norwich.

FW: Theo Walcott (Arsenal)

There’s little arguing with a hat-trick, including two strikes of the highest quality and one which demonstrated plenty of composure. Walcott also got two assists against Newcastle.

FW: Luis Suarez (Liverpool)

It may have been as comfortable as a training match for the striker in the first half against QPR, but he won the game with two clinical finishes and was a constant threat in the final third.
