GK: Asmir Begovic, for Stoke v West Brom (9/10)
Although he flapped at a couple of crosses, the Bosnian produced three stunning saves to foil the visitors at the Britannia Stadium, further underlining his credentials as one of the very best in the division.
Key moment (89’): Sessegnon should have scored after a brilliant run into the box, but from five yards out Begovic blocks his effort.
Good point on the board for us in the end today! West Brom played very well. We will keep learning and getting better together! #beastmode

The England Under-21 international was in scintillating form in the shock 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, defending adeptly and attacking to great effect. He relished the battle against one of England's best teams.
Key moment (88'): Brilliant effort from Clyne on the run from Lallana's pass, but De Gea stands tall to make an excellent stop.

The Croatian is fast becoming a fixture in our team of the week and has been a fantastic addition to the Premier League. Though Southampton's goal was finally credited to Adam Lallana, Lovren had another big performance.
Key moment (89'): GOAL! Lovren or Lallana bundles the ball into the United net from the corner. And Saints are level in the dying seconds. Would you believe this? 1-1. No more than they deserve.
I would Lovren if they beat them, Lovren.

The Spaniard made a number of crucial interceptions at the back as Swansea enjoyed a comprehensive 4-0 against Gus Poyet's side in his first game in charge.
Key moment (80'): GOAL! Chico Flores adds a fourth for Swansea from another De Guzman corner as the hosts continue their dominance in this match and put woeful Sunderland to the sword! Laudrup can afford a smile now as the defender pounces from close range to add another! Poyet must be desperate for this match to end.
MOTM - Who would you choose as Swansea's outstanding player against Sunderland? The tireless Britton, the enigmatic Chico, or someone else? — Swansfc (@swansfc) October 20, 2013

Gibbs has quietly been very good for Arsenal so far this season and the full-back played another important role in a 4-1 win over Norwich as he patrolled the left flank with real intent and combined well in attack.
Key moment (37'): ARSENAL HIT THE POST! Awful from Russell Martin as he gifts the ball to Gibbs and the left-back crosses for Giroud, who sees his low effort turned onto the post by Ruddy.

Key moment (23’): GOAL! Cabaye puts Newcastle in front! It's a fine effort as he drives forward from the halfway line with Liverpool players backing off, and he lets fly with a stunning effort which beats Mignolet at his far post! It's a fine start for Newcastle, and the hosts go in front! You cannot allow Cabaye to shoot from there with so much freedom.
Cabaye comes off to a generous ovation. Performances since coming back into team an eloquent response to what happened at start of season. — George Caulkin (@CaulkinTheTimes) October 19, 2013

CM: Jonathan De Guzman, for Swansea v Sunderland (8/10)
A stunning curled finish from the midfielder doubled Swansea's lead before the hour mark to top off two assists from corners as he played a huge part in everything positive from the hosts in an emphatic victory.
Key moment (59’): GOAL! De Guzman turns goalscorer as he receives a pass from Routledge and bends a glorious finish into the top corner of the net! Westwood has no chance whatsoever and De Guzman produces a touch of class that doubles Swansea's lead, two minutes after the opening goal.
Jonathan de Guzman's finish would be banned in some countries. Filth.

A brilliant performance from the youngster, who seems to know no fear at the moment. Townsend ignored the controversy around comments made about him by Roy Hodgson to help defeat Villa, even if his goal was rather fortunate.
Key moment (28’): GOAL! Townsend throws a cross in that goes straight into the net from out wide. Guzan couldn't get hold of the ball as it flew beyond him. Soldado let the ball go past him. Spurs lead 1-0.

AMC: Mesut Ozil, for Arsenal v Norwich (8/10)
Even if Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey scored better goals, Ozil claimed two as he turned in another highly influential performance in the No. 10 role. The German dictated Arsenal’s attacks and continues to make his team-mates play to a higher standard.
Key moment (58’): GOAL! Arsenal 2-0 Norwich! Ozil heads Arsenal into a two-goal lead as he leaps to meet Giroud’s cross after a quick break from the home side.
1 - Mesut Ozil's first goal vs Norwich is the first time he has ever scored with a header in a league/Champions League game. Targetman.

AML: Eden Hazard, for Chelsea v Cardiff (8/10)
Scored twice and was a constant threat with his pace and trickery going forward. Though he benefitted from Samuel Eto'o's skullduggery for his first, this was still a very impressive performance.
Key moment (32’): GOAL Chelsea! It’s another right pickle. Eto’o nips the ball off Marshall while he’s bouncing it, and although he misses the first chance he squares to Hazard and he slots it home.

ST: Sergio Aguero, for Manchester City v West Ham (9/10)
Saturday witnessed a marvellous performance from the little Argentina forward. West Ham struggled to handle his pace and movement as he bagged two in a 3-1 win and also got an assist for David Silva too.
Key moment (16’): GOAL! Aguero beats the offside trap before beating Jussi Jaaskelainen with the finish. Lovely ball from Fernandinho. West Ham punished for going to sleep.
If I was starting a team from scratch Aguero would be my first hiring
