thumbnail Hello,

The Belgian grabbed a superb equaliser to star in our XI alongside Pienaar and Baines, while Rafael and Jonny Evans both feature as Manchester United stay top of the table

Marouane Fellaini makes his sixth appearance this season in our TOTW, after his long-range effort earned Everton a 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Wednesday evening.

Leighton Baines and Steven Pienaar - once again influential down the left-hand flank for David Moyes' side - complete the Toffees trio in this week's XI.

Defensive duo Rafael and Jonny Evans both star as Manchester United maintained their grip on top spot with a 1-0 win against West Ham, with Robin van Persie just missing the cut following his early opener at Old Trafford.

Tottenham's Gareth Bale features despite his own goal in the 2-1 victory over Liverpool. The Welsh wizard teed up Aaron Lennon to open the scoring before wrong-footing Pepe Reina with a free kick to double his side's lead at White Hart Lane.

Swansea duo Pablo Hernandez and Wayne Routledge both make the cut after Michael Laudrup's men recorded an impressive 3-1 win over in-form West Brom, while Brad Guzan and Christian Benteke are included after Aston Villa earned a priceless three points at home to Reading.

Completing our XI is Southampton's Luke Shaw, who helped Nigel Adkins' men to a 1-1 draw at home to fellow Premier League new boys Norwich City.

Theo Walcott, Mario Balotelli and Michu are all unfortunate to miss out after finding the back of the net in Wednesday's fixtures, with Adam Lallana and Brett Holman also failing to make the cut.
