Who joins Matic and Long in the team of the week?

Shane Long

Aston Villa, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Chelsea, Southampton, Swansea City and Manchester City stars all feature.

There were some superb individual performances over the weekend as the Premier League now grinds to a halt as the third international break already this season is about to start.

Here’s our Premier League team of the week based on the weekend’s action.

GK – Brad Guzan (Aston Villa)

He was pivotal in his side getting a point away at West Ham United. The American made a number of top quality saves.

RB – Antonio Valencia (Manchester United)

Valencia produced a very aggressive and feisty display of football, which made it difficult for Crystal Palace to get any momentum in attack.

CB – Fabricio Coloccini (Newcastle United)

Gave a superb and experienced performance against West Brom, bagging a goal in the process.

CB – Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa)

As solid as a rock against West Ham. No wonder Manchester United want to throw millions at him.

LB – Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)

Gary Neville has just described Azpilicueta as the best defender in the Premier League and he showed why against Liverpool.

CM – Nemanja Matic (Chelsea)

Jose Mourinho has just described Matic as the best player in Chelsea’s team. He was a beast against Liverpool and protected his defence well.

CM – Jefferson Montero (Swansea City)

Calum Chambers will still be having nightmares about Montero. He gave the England international the run around in the Swans’ 2-1 win.

CM – Victor Wanyama (Southampton)

Ran the game in the middle of the team against Leicester City and gave the more creative players the freedom and room to express themselves.

ST – Shane Long (Southampton)

Showed great touch and quality with a brace against the Foxes.

ST – Diego Costa (Chelsea)

Kept his cool and slammed home Chelsea’s winner against Liverpool.

ST – Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

Two more goals as he’s maintained his impressive form from October into November.
