Premier League Team of the Weekend
Here are the best performers from the weekend's Premier League action, with three West Ham players, and even one Arsenal defender making the cut.
Adrian, West Ham
Made brilliant save to deny Robin van Persie, and looked unbeatable until Daley Blind's late equaliser for Manchester United.
Branislav Ivanovic, Chelsea
Gave Scott Sinclair a brutal footballing lesson when the winger came on, and popped up with a left-footed volley to defeat Aston Villa.
Jan Vertonghen, Tottenham
Marshalled the Spurs defence brilliantly, and helped restrict Arsenal to no clear-cut chances after Mesut Ozil’s early goal.
Cheikhou Kouyate, West Ham
Injuries meant the Senegalese midfielder was forced to play in central defence, and boy did he adapt well. Largely got the better of Manchester United’s much-vaunted strike partnership, and got forward to score a stunning volley.
Nacho Monreal, Arsenal
Helped by the fact that Tottenham targeted right-back Hector Bellerin, but still put in an impressively composed and committed performance, when many of his team-mates appeared to drift through the 90 minutes.
Tom Huddlestone, Hull City
Enjoyed something of a renaissance against Manchester City, impressing with his range of passing and ability to break up City's attacks.
Nemanja Matic, Chelsea
Goes from strength to strength in the heart of Chelsea's midfield - overpowered Aston Villa with a typical exhibition of brute force in the tackle and powerful driving runs.
Alex Song, West Ham
Quality on the ball was sometimes lacking, but the midfielder covered every blade of grass as the Hammers did all they could to fend off Louis van Gaal's team.
Sadio Mane, Southampton
Capped an enterprising performance with a well-taken late goal to sink QPR at Loftus Road.
Harry Kane, Tottenham
We're running out of superlatives now for the young striker, who enhanced his burgeoning reputation with a stunning brace against north London rivals Arsenal.
Wilfried Zaha, Crystal Palace
Looked back to his carefree and vibrant best against Leicester, taking on Nigel Pearson's full-backs at will and invariably getting the better of them.
