GK: Brad Guzan (Aston Villa)
Made a succession of crucial saves in Aston Villa's 3-2 win over fellow strugglers QPR, the highlight of which was a stunning effort to deny Chris Samba.
RB: Seamus Coleman (Everton)
A powerhouse display from the young Irish right-back as Everton beat Manchester City. A constant menace going forward, and solid as a rock at the back.
CB: Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United)
It was hardly a performance for the ages from any of United players, but Ferdinand's first assist for six years gets him the nod in our selection.
CB: Chris Samba (QPR)
At times performed as an extra attacker as well as a sturdy centre-back as he proved prominent at both ends of the pitch.
LB: Nacho Monreal (Arsenal)
Claimed his first goal for Arsenal in a 2-0 win at Swansea and linked up well with Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ahead of him.
MD: Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton)
The French midfielder bagged his fifth goal of the season and showed why he has been one of the standout young players in the Premier League this year.
MD: Leon Osman (Everton)
Scored a screamer from 30 yards but also helped dictate play from a deep role in midfield. Showed why he has belatedly become an England international.
AMR: Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
A goal and an assist from the star of the show against West Ham. Hazard was in a class of his own, producing some brilliant tricks and taunting West Ham all game long.
AMC: Santi Cazorla (Arsenal)
He probably should have scored against Swansea but the Spaniard was at the heart of everything Arsenal created and took control of the game with his precise and purposeful passing.
AML: Shaun Maloney (Wigan)
A constant thorn in Newcastle's side throughout. He was a real menace with his forward runs and was unlucky not to get a goal in the first half. Hardly put a pass wrong all afternoon.
ST: Andreas Weimann (Aston Villa)
Scored one and set one up against Queens Park Rangers as Villa came from behind to win for the second week in a row.
