Stephanie Roche's Premier League team of the weekend
Chelsea look like they won't be caught following Manchester City's defeat at Anfield while the race for fourth looks like it will go right to the wire. Here is my Premier League Team of the Weekend.
Fabianski – Swansea
Solid under the high ball while making a couple of good saves at vital times.
Antonio Valencia – Manchester United
Always a threat going forward and played his part in both of Man United’s goals.
Scott Dann – Crystal Palace
Got the vital second goal for Palace at West Ham as the Londoners continue their revival under Alan Pardew. Could do little about West Ham’s long-range goal.
Federico Fernandez – Swansea
Fernandez led the back back four in a solid defensive performance for Swansea.
Hector Bellerin - Arsenal
Denied a real goalscoring chance by a last-ditch Phil Jagielka tackle and a solid cog in the Gunners back four.
Jason Puncheon – Crystal Palace
He became the first Palace player ever to set up three goals in one match. Brilliant attacking performance.
Mesut Ozil – Arsenal
He has been criticised on more than one occasion this season but few can argue that when the Arsenal midfielder is in form, he is a joy to watch.
Raheem Sterling – Liverpool
Always a threat, Sterling really has cemented his status as one of England’s top young talents. I would not like to be a defender facing him.
Brendan Rodgers said after the match that Coutinho is now shooting like a Brazilian. He is playing like one too. An unbelievable winning goal was matched by a man-of-the-match performance.
Wayne Rooney – Manchester United
His first goal came as a welcome relief. Rooney was eight games without a Premier League goal – he had never reached nine before.
Olivier Giroud – Arsenal
Missed one good chance before he headed home for Arsenal in their 2-0 win over Everton.
