Another weekend of Premier League action has come and gone with several of the big clubs winning and Manchester United dropping more points at home against Southampton.
Fulham secured an impressive and vital win away at Crystal Palace and there were several other key results around the league as side jostle for position on the Premier League table.
Here is our team of the week.
GK – Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur)
Lloris was very solid in the away match at Aston Villa last Sunday. He’s a very active goalkeeper, always looking to come out and take the pressure away from his defence, which allows Tottenham’s back four to play a higher line.
RB – Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton)
Clyne was superb as the Saints managed to secure a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. He pressed high up the pitch throughout the game, tucking in next to his central defender when he needed to and offer an outlet in attack.
CB – Phil Jagielka (Everton)
Jagielka is quickly turning himself into the most reliable centre back in the Premier League. He’s a no nonsense defender and did the basics very well as Everton secured a 2-1 win against Hull City.
CB – Dejan Lovren (Southampton)
The left sided central defender didn’t look at all out of his depth against Manchester United. He was solid throughout the 90 minutes and managed to grab the vital equaliser to go with the goal he scored at Anfield.
LB – Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur)
The Belgian looks like one of the most composed players in Tottenham’s team. It doesn’t matter where Andre Villas-Boas asks him to play, he does a solid and consistent job across the back four.
RM – Andros Townsend (Tottenham Hotspur)
It’s been a very good couple of weeks for Spurs winger Andros Townsend. He grabbed his first goal in Tottenham’s win at Aston Villa and showcased perfectly how to wear out a full back over 90 minutes.
CM – Mesut Ozil (Arsenal)
Ozil bagged a brace and continued his good form in Arsenal colours against Norwich City. He showed no signs of the knee injury he was carrying last week and looks like he’ll be effective whenever he’s called upon this season.
CM – Jonathan De Guzman (Swansea City)
De Guzman had one of his best all round games as Swansea comfortably defeated Sunderland. He looked composed whenever he got on the ball and marked his performance with a stunning finish.
LM – Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)
Ramsey looks like a very complete player at the moment and he came off the bench to grab another goal against Norwich. He doesn’t seem to care where he’s playing at the moment, he’ll make the same sorts of runs and is easily one of the best midfielders around right now.
ST – Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
He showcased some of his best attacking and creative football in the win against Cardiff City and was at times, literally unplayable. Hazard’s left midfield position is under threat from Andre Schurrle at the moment and he’s given Mourinho positive problems.
ST – Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)
Aguero is the best striker at Manchester City and if they can keep him fit throughout the season, they’ll have a great chance of winning some silverware by the end of the campaign. He was world class against West Ham.
