Here is Sportzwiki’s very own EPL team of the Gameweek
A clean sheet and a steady performance between the sticks for the French captain in a potential 6-pointer in the fight for Champions League football against Everton sees him walk into the team of the week unchallenged. In a mistake-free performance, Tim Sherwood’s Spurs saw off top-4 rivals Everton at White Hart Lane on Sunday in 1-0 win. Lloris made a terrific save in the seventh minute, springing to his left to push away a volley from Leon Osman, who then headed wide when unmarked from the corner. However was rarely threatened for the rest of the game.
Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)
A sturdy performance in the 3-0 drubbing of Newcastle United coupled with an assist for Eden Hazard’s goal sees Chelsea first-choice right full-back Ivanovic cement his place in the team-of-the-week for another consecutive week.
Martin Skrtel (Liverpool)
2 goals in the space of the opening 3 minutes of a game is remarkable even for the best of forwards. Liverpool centre back Martin Skrtel proved to be deadly from 2 set-pieces in the first 3 minutes of the game to push the league leaders on the back-foot. A clean performance that followed ensured he made the team of the week
The former Wigan left back claimed an assist and a clean sheet as his employers Hull City saw off Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in a battle of relegation-threatened teams.
Wayne Routledge (Swansea City)
The former Spurs academy graduate has become a fan favourite at the Liberty Stadium .Routledge put in a man-of-the-match performance by firstly, scoring the opener couple of minutes into the second half and 11 minutes from time setting up Nathan Dyer to secure the victory for the Welsh outfit.
Kevin Nolan (West Ham United)
One of best players in the league to play off the frontman, the return of Andy Carroll brought the best out of Nolan. However Carroll absence due to suspension didn’t deter Nolan’s return to form, 2 quick-fire second half goals within the space of 3 minutes meant that West Ham secured their 3 points and in the course, got their captain back to his inspiring best.
Thomas Ince (Crystal Palace)
The 22-year-old winger from Blackpool enjoyed a dream debut for Crystal Palace by scoring a goal and setting up another in the 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion. Ince who chose Palace over Swansea for his loan spell from Blackpool, took only 15 minutes to set them on the way, running on to a rebound and brilliantly flicking the ball over the onrushing Ben Foster.
Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
A hat-trick against a lack-lustre Newcastle United was proof that this 23 year old Belgian is playing at a completely different level from the rest. The first – a brilliant instinctive finish, the second – classic counter-attacking wing play accompanied with a cool finish and an expert penalty to cap off a brilliant performance by the Chelsea number 17.
Raheem Sterling (Liverpool)
2 goals and a constant threat to one of the best defences in the league is something. Deployed on the left wing against Arsenal to keep a check on Bacary Sagna, it was Sagna who had to keep a check on the 19 year old as the Red ran riot at Anfield.
Striker – Samuel Eto’o (Chelsea)
For a very long time Chelsea faithful have been crying out for an effective and consistent no.9. In Samuel Eto’o they may not have got the same player who terrorized the La Liga but they certainly have got commitment to the cause and effort. A cheeky back-heel to set up Eden Hazard’s second and a tireless performance sees the Cameroon captain play as the lone striker for our team of the week.
