Premier League - Team of Midweek: Brilliant Bale

Tottenham star Gareth Bale is in our XI after an eventful evening, but who joined him in the Team of Midweek?

GK: Jussi Jaaskelainen (West Ham)

Manchester United had 22 shots at Old Trafford but scored with only one as Jaaskelainen made a string of impressive saves for the Hammers.

RB: Guy Demel (West Ham)

Jaaskelainen was aided by the excellent Demel, who made a number of important interceptions and put his body on the line for Sam Allardyce's side.

CB: James Collins (West Ham)

Our third Hammer, Collins turned in a man-of-the-match performance at United as his aerial presence and strength helped keep United at bay for almost all of the match.

CB: Jonny Evans (Manchester United)

It wasn't just the visitors who put on a defensive show as Evans was a titan at the back for United, his crucial late clearance heading off fears of an equaliser.

LB: Danny Rose (Sunderland)

The England U21 full-back showed great drive to get forward as often as he could, looking to inspire an uninspiring Sunderland in a 0-0 draw against QPR.

CM: Gareth Barry (Manchester City)

The England midfielder is back to his best form of last season and his commanding performance at the heart of the team helped City to three more points against Wigan.

CM: Sandro (Tottenham Hotspur)

Sandro has been in brilliant form this season and turned in a commanding display as Tottenham beat Liverpool 2-1 at home.

AMR: Wayne Routledge (Swansea City)

The Swansea winger was a threat throughout against West Brom, scoring twice and carving out numerous chances in an excellent all-round performance.

AMC: Michu (Swansea City)

The Spaniard now has a hugely impressive eight goals in 14 appearances after getting on the scoresheet again in the win over West Brom.

AML: Gareth Bale (Tottenham Hotspur)

His hard running down the left and dead-ball play were key to Tottenham's victory, though he was very unlucky to score a comical own goal.

ST: Cameron Jerome (Stoke City)

Assisted the equaliser and scored the winner during a 22-minute cameo that saw Stoke defeat Newcastle 2-1.
