Squarefootball's Team of the Week

Bookmark and Share


Arsenal lost the crunch north London derby while Liverpool and Manchester United went goal crazy, QPR gave their survival hopes a boost with victory over Southampton and West Ham became only the second side this season to win at the Britannia, but who has made it into our Team of the Week?

Here is my starting XI from the weekend's action.

Goalkeeper: Michel Vorm (Swansea City)

Vorm looked back to his best against Newcastle, making a number of excellent saves in the second half including tipping a decent Cabaye shot onto the post.

Right Back: Sheamus Coleman (Everton)

Coleman provided strong service from right back, linking well with the right midfielder and delivering killer crosses that Reading’s defence struggled to deal with.

Centre Back: Ashley Williams (Swansea City)

Swansea captain Ashley Williams gave a leader’s performance in his side's 1-0 win over Alan Pardew's Newcastle.

Centre Back: Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur)

The Belgium defender was composed and strong in Spurs' 2-1 victory over Arsenal. I wonder if Arsene Wenger was wondering whether he should have tried harder to sign him when he had the chance?

Left Back: Sascha Riether (Fulham)

Riether got Fulham’s second goal, putting the Cottagers in the driver’s seat in their match at Sunderland, and also defended very well for the duration of the contest.

Right Midfield: Ricardo Vaz Te (West Ham United)

An early substitute for West Ham, Vaz Te was the difference between the Hammers and Stoke, providing pace and power on the right before setting up Collison’s goal. He should have scored late on too.

Centre Midfield: Stephane Sessegnon (Sunderland)

Sessegnon was the outstanding player in the match between the Black Cats and Fulham this weekend, scoring a brilliant goal and dragging Sunderland back into the match.

Centre Midfield: Shinji Kagawa (Manchester United)

A hat-trick from Kagawa was the big talking point in United’s 4-0 over Norwich. While the first goal had a touch of luck about it, the other two were simply class from the Japanese international.

Left Midfield: Steven Pienaar (Everton)

Pienaar scored a fine goal and set up another to cap a brilliant performance in Everton’s 3-1 win over Reading, a win that keeps their faint top four hopes alive.

Centre Forward: Luis Suarez (Liverpool)

Another hat-trick for Luis Suarez, this time away to Wigan. Three very well taken goals from the Uruguayan who is now the leading scorer in the league. Is he better than RVP? We'll discuss that in another article.

Centre Forward: Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)

A wonderful goal from Wayne Rooney was the icing on the cake of United’s demolition of Norwich. The former Everton striker also played a crucial role in setting up one of Kagawa’s goals.
