In a week dominated by the North west rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United, it was a game that failed to lived up to the expectations. However, there were plenty of other games and other performances that lit the Premier League up.

Here is the Team of the Week for the this weekend of the Premier League fixtures:

Goal-Keeper:

Petr Cech (Arsenal):

Just inching past David de Gea and Jack Butland, Petr Cech was busy at the Britannia keeping his side in the game and giving them a point against Stoke.

Defense:

Charlie Daniels (AFC Bournemouth):

The Cherries took all three points from the Canaries and the left back Charlie Daniels put in a superb performance making great impact going forward.

Ryan Shawcross (Stoke City):

The Stoke City skipper has been excellent at the back for his side and once again put in a great performance to shut Arsenal down on Sunday.

Mamadou Sakho (Liverpool):

The French international was superb in defense for Liverpool as he never gave the United players any space or time on the ball. He was also superb in the air against the likes of Fellaini and was unlucky to end up on the losing side.

Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City):

The Manchester City right back was in supreme form as he continuously kept knocking on the door in their victory against Crystal Palace. He also formed a great partnership with Kevin de Bruyne in the final third.

 

 

 

Mid-field:

James Ward-Prowse (Southampton):

A brace from the mid-fielder saw Southampton take all three points from an ordinary WBA side. He was busy in the mid-field and scored a beautiful free kick to open the scoring for the hosts.

Jonjo Shelvy (Newcastle United):

The January signing at Newcastle made a huge impact on the night as he made some great passes that created chances for the Magpies in their victory against the Hammers.

Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur):

The Spurs mid-fielder produced a master class against the Black Cats as he scored a brace and gave his side all three points on an easy night.

Kevin Mirallas (Everton):

The Belgian scored a goal but should have had a hat-trick in the 3-3 thriller at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Mirallas was at his best as he tormented the Chelsea defense all night long.

Attack:

Sergio Aguero (Manchester City):

Scored a brace in the 4-0 rout against Crystal Palace and also set up David Silva for the 4th un-selfishly in a superb performance by the Argentine.

Benik Afobe (AFC Bournemouth):

The new comer made an immediate impact for the Cherries as he scored the first goal in the game to set Bournemouth on their 3-0 victory over Norwich City.
