GK: Brad Guzan (Aston Villa)
Coped expertly with West Ham's aerial approach and also made a number of vital saves in a 2-1 home win that could be crucial to transforming Aston Villa's season.
RB: Rafael (Manchester United)
Another consistent performance from Rafael as he helped Manchester United tighten their stranglehold on the title with another consistent effort in supporting his midfielders and forwards.
CB: Bacary Sagna (Arsenal)
The France international has endured a poor couple of months for Arsenal, but this was a gigantic performance in an unfamiliar position and he made a succession of crucial clearances.
CB: Ciaran Clark (Aston Villa)
Confidence was obviously high after scoring for Republic of Ireland in their 2-0 friendly win over Poland earlier in the week. Responded with a commanding performance to help deny West Ham a point for their efforts late in the game.
LB: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)
Galloped up and down the flank in tormenting Wigan for much of the afternoon while also providing the balls for Eden Hazard and Mark Marin to chip in with goals in Chelsea's 4-1 stroll.
RM: Jason Puncheon (Southampton)
Scored the opening goal in Southampton's 3-1 humbling of Manchester City before causing controversy with the nature of his 'toilet humour' goal celebrations, but can be happy with his overall contribution against the English champions.
CM: Frank Lampard (Chelsea)
Continues to go from strength to strength, and is easily in the midst of one of the best spells of form in his career. Believes he is benefiting from playing twice a week, and it is hard to argue with such a belief. Scored the third goal against Wigan, his ninth in 14 matches.
CM: Charles N’Zogbia (Aston Villa)
Showed why Villa forked out £9.5 million to sign the French forward from Wigan in 2011 with a leading contribution in the 2-1 win over West Ham. Earned the penalty that prompted his side's opening goal before swerving a delightful free-kick into the net for what proved to be the match-winning second goal.
LM: Gareth Bale (Tottenham)
A thrilling exhibition of pace and power from Tottenham's best player as he worked Newcastle relentlessly down the flanks and through the centre. Two nice goals were due reward.
ST: Michu (Swansea City)
A double from the forward coupled with an assist made the former Rayo Vallecano man the difference between the two sides.
ST: Pablo Hernandez (Swansea City)
Enjoyed his day out at the Liberty Stadium as he set about dismantling QPR in a 4-1 win with some relish. Combined well with Michu and scored in what became a celebration of Spain's contribution to the Welsh club this season.
