Wigan trio Victor Moses, Gary Caldwell and James McArthur are all included after the 1-0 victory over Man Utd, with Hatem Ben Arfa also in our XI following his superb solo goal

Robin van Persie features in our TOTW for the 11th time this season as he returned to scoring ways in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Wolves on Wednesday evening.

The Dutchman dinked home from the penalty spot after Theo Walcott had been fouled, before turning provider for the wideman as he doubled the Gunners' lead at Molineux.

Sergio Aguero is also included in our XI after his brace helped Manchester City to a 4-0 victory over West Brom that pulls them just five points behind United at the top of the table following their defeat to Wigan.

Three of Roberto Martinez’s players feature in our TOTW after the 1-0 win over the Red Devils, with Gary Caldwell lining up in defence, while Victor Moses and James McArthur both make the cut in midfield.

Hatem Ben Arfa makes his second appearance this season in our XI following his superb solo goal in Newcastle’s 2-0 victory over Bolton, while former team-mate Joey Barton is rewarded for his role for QPR as they defeated Swansea 3-0.

Nedum Onuoha makes his TOTW debut at right-back after the clash at Loftus Road, while Fulham’s John Arne Riise fills in on the opposite flank after they held Chelsea to 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage on Monday night.

James Collins completes our backline having helped Aston Villa to a point against Stoke, with John Ruddy rounding off our TOTW in goal with his fourth appearance this season following Norwich’s 2-1 away win over Tottenham.

Fellow Canaries Anthony Pilkington and Ryan Bennett are both unlucky to miss out, while QPR trio Anton Ferdinand, Clint Hill and Samba Diakite also just fail to make the cut.
