EPL Team of the Week

Opinion often divides fans as to who the top performers were in any given game, let alone in a full round of fixtures. So this week we've done things a little differently and used the data compiled by WhoScored.com to determine the best-performing XI from the last round of Premier League matches.

It makes for interesting reading…

GK: Lukas Fabianski (Swansea City)

Fabianski made nine saves on Monday night, some of which were top class, as he time and time again denied Arsenal, keeping a clean sheet in the Swans surprise 1-0 victory.

RB: Geoff Cameron (Stoke City)

The American defender made three tackles, two interceptions and 11 clearances as Stoke achieved what few have done in recent times: keep Harry Kane under wraps.

CB: Jason Shacknell (Burnley)

The Clarets' 1-0 win over Hull was not enough to keep them in the Premier League, but Shacknell's performance does get him into our best XI. The former Norwich defender made a massive 18 clearances as well as getting in three blocks and making three clearances in his side's win over the Tigers.

CB: Robert Huth (Leicester City)

The big German has really come to the fore at the Foxes after finding himself on the periphery at Stoke. Huth executed six interceptions and made 11 clearances against Southampton, as well as getting in one key block.

LB: Aleksandar Kolarov (Manchester City)

City were so dominant against QPR that Kolarov had little to do defensively, but what he was required to do he did well. The full-back was a threat going forward, making two key passes as well as getting his name on the scoresheet with a great free-kick.

RM: James Milner (Manchester City)

The England international put in a great all-round performance against QPR, as we've become accustomed to him doing. Milner got on the scoresheet and worked hard to break down QPR and ensure City were always moving in the right direction.

CM: Riyhad Mahrez (Leicester City)

Another Leicester player who has continued to impress as the Foxes' bid to avoid relegation has built up momentum. Mahrez scored two goals with his only two shots on target, and made key contributions from the midfield.

CM: Steven N'Zonzi (Stoke City)

Among the goals and strong in defence, N'Zonzi did a little bit of everything as the Potters comprehensively outplayed Tottenham.

LM: David Silva (Manchester City)

Silva was in magical form against QPR as he pulled the strings for the Citizens with great effect. The Spaniard made five key passes and mesmerized the defence on three dribbling runs while also adding a goal to his tally.

FW: Victor Anichebe (West Bromich Albion)

It's perhaps a surprise to see the Nigerian in the line-up, but his goal together with some positive general play lands him in the thick of it.

FW: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

Of the five shots that Aguero had on Sunday, four were on target and three found the back of the net – certainly not a bad return!
