thumbnail Hello,

The Arsenal striker is included in our XI once again after taking his goal tally for the campaign to a sensational 31 with a double against Liverpool at Anfield

Robin van Persie is included in our XI for an incredible 10th time already this season after scoring both of Arsenal's goals in the last-gasp 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

The prolific striker is joined in this week's side by Gunners team-mate Wojciech Szczesny, who followed up a terrific double save from Dirk Kuyt's penalty to deny Luis Suarez in the first half of the victory at Anfield.

Swansea City boast three representatives after a convincing 2-0 win away to lowly Wigan Athletic, with Angel Rangel's marauding display earning him a spot at right-back and two-goal hero Gylfi Sigurdsson being joined in the centre of midfield by pass master Leon Britton, who controlled the game throughout for Brendan Rodgers' men.

Carlos Cuellar's assured performance at centre-back in Aston Villa's 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers, as well as his assist for Charles N'Zogbia's goal, sees him beat Vincent Kompany and Ashley Williams to partner Manchester United's rock at the back in their 3-1 win over Tottenham, Jonny Evans, at the heart of defence.

John Arne Riise takes his place at left-back after arguably putting in his best display for Fulham in the 5-0 hammering of Wolves, while Clint Dempsey's two goals earn him a spot on the right and Pavel Pogrebnyak is included alongside Van Persie following his first hat-trick in English football.

As well as the aforementioned Kompany, Williams and N'Zogbia, honourable mentions go to Gareth McAuley, Joe Allen, Royston Drenthe, Matthew Etherington and Mario Balotelli, but the final place in our XI goes to Ashley Young for his double against Spurs at White Hart Lane.
