Squarefootball's Team of the Week - Week 29

Bookmark and Share


Arsenal booked their place in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend alongside Hull City and Sheffield United, while Manchester City were dumped out by current holders Wigan Athletic on their home patch.

Meanwhile, back in the Premier League under-fire David Moyes saw his United side leave West Brom firmly in trouble with a 3-0 victory, Cardiff City boosted their survival hopes with a huge win over fellow strugglers Fulham and Chelsea cruised past Spurs.

So who has made it into our Team of the Week?

Goalkeeper: Artur Boruc (Southampton)

The big Pole was on top form against Crystal Palace on Saturday. Boruc, who conceded three last week against Liverpool, was back to his best to keep the buoyant Eagles at bay.

Right Back: Rafael (Manchester United)

The Brazilian defender kept a clean sheet as United tore the Baggies apart. Rafael was a constant threat and set up Rooney for their second of the afternoon.

Centre Back: Steven Caulker (Cardiff City)

This is the kind of performance that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be demanding every week from his captain. Caulker bagged the opener before restoring their lead in the second half. The former Spurs man was a rock at the back and a threat going forward. 

Centre Back: Curtis Davies (Hull City)

A firm regular in our team of the week, Davies was one of 11 heroes for Hull City against Sunderland. He put the Tigers ahead and kept a clean sheet with another outstanding display at the back. 

Left Back: Luke Shaw (Southampton)

The Southampton youngster celebrated his first England cap with another clean sheet for his country in their 1-0 win over Palace. Shaw may not make the cut for the World Cup in Brazil but he will definitely win more than 100 caps if he remains injury free. 

Centre Midfield: David Meyler (Hull City)

The former Sunderland man was at the centre of the Alan Pardew headbutt story last week. This week he was the main man for all the right reasons, helping Hull City into the semi-final of the FA Cup for the first time in decades. His goal celebration was also top class.

Centre Midfield: Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United)

The former Everton man hasn't achieved much in a United shirt since his big-money move but he put in a decent performance against the Baggies. Strong in the tackle and good in the air, Fellaini may be starting to settle into his new surroundings. 

HazardCentre Midfield: Eden Hazard (Chelsea)

The Belgian continued his mesmerising form with another flawless performance against Spurs. He coolly slotted home the penalty on the hour mark and terrorised Tottenham's defence throughout.  

Striker: Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)

Rooney certainly earned a huge slice of his £300,000 a week contract on Saturday against West Brom. He scored the second and set up the third in a convincing victory for the champions. 

Striker: Samuel Eto’o (Chelsea)

The Chelsea Pensioner was given a late call-up following injury to Fernando Torres in the warm up and the former Barcelona man produced the goods against a rotten Tottenham Hotspur. He scored the opener and gave Dawson and Kaboul the runaround. Not bad for an old man!

Striker: Oliver Giroud (Arsenal)

The Frenchman came off the bench and settled the game with two late finishes. He truly does score when he wants!

So that's our Team of the Week. Do you agree with our choices? Whatever your views, we'd love to hear from you.
