Premier League Team of the Week

Goalkeeper: Fraser Forster (Southampton)

The Saints shot-stopper had a great game at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and made a string of fine saves against the league leaders – in the second half in particular.  A fine double save to deny Oscar and Eden Hazard was followed another one-handed save to keep out Cesar Azpilicueta, before Loic Remy, John Terry and Oscar again were all kept out by the 26-year-old.

Defender: Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton)

A rock at the back and a rocket going forward, the 23-year-old was a constant outlet for Ronald Koeman's side down the Chelsea left, while patrolling the right side of the Southampton defense with aplomb.

Defender: Robert Huth (Leicester City)

Having found himself on the periphery at Stoke after a spell out with injury, Huth's move to Leicester has proved a great one for both the big German and the Foxes.

Defender: Chris Smalling (Manchester United)

Smalling was rock-solid at the back for United and also got forward well. His most telling contribution was keeping Harry Kane quiet, with the Spurs striker unable to make an impact.

Midfielder: Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)

Back pulling the strings for the Gunners after yet more injury trouble, Ramsey provided a great link between the midfield and Olivier Giroud in attack. Notching up a goal and an assist, Ramsey was a star performer.

Midfielder: Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United)

The Belgian had arguably one of his best days since making the move to Old Trafford. Tottenham were simply unable to deal with his powerful runs into space from deep positions. Like his team-mate Carrick, had a hand in one goal and scored one of his own.

Midfielder: Michael Carrick (Manchester United)

He set the tempo of the midfield play for Man United throughout with his ability to move the ball into attacking situations. The 33-year-old created one goal and scored another in what was a dominant afternoon the Red Devils.

Midfielder: Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton)

The Frenchman, in partnership with Victor Wanyama, dominated the much-vaunted Chelsea midfield of Oscar and Cesc Fabregas, leaving them to feed off scraps for a large part of the match. Schneiderlin's composure on the ball and willingness to launch attacks from the back when they are on gets him the vote ahead of the Kenyan.

Forward: Olivier Giroud (Arsenal)

A menace for the West Ham defense throughout and could have opened the scoring with his clever flick early on. Nevertheless, scored his fifth in as many matches to open the scoring, before contributing to another goal early on.

Forward: Gabriel Agbonlahor (Aston Villa)

Scored a first half brace and his pace proved difficult to deal with for the lethargic Sunderland defense. His trademark runs in from the right flank, during which he would turn his marker with regularity, were particularly impressive.

Forward: Romelu Lukaku (Everton)

Lukaku has come in for a lot of stick this season – and rightly so – for some laborious displays in the league. For once the Belgian was able to carry impressive form in Europe back into domestic action, and the result was clear to see with the Toffees registering a much-needed victory.
