thumbnail Hello,

The Aston Villa striker is joined by two Wigan game-changers and a host of Southampton players who impressed in their 1-0 defeat at Tottenham, while Juan Mata also features

Gabriel Agbonlahor's excellent double at Norwich was almost enough to drag Aston Villa clear of danger and he subsequently features in this week's Premier League Team of the Week.

He is joined in attack by Wigan forward Callum McManaman, who netted the decisive goal in the Latics' 3-2 win at West Brom, while the man who delivered the telling assist, Shaun Maloney, also makes his first TOTW appearance.

Across the midfield, Mikel Arteta's defence-splitting pass for Theo Walcott's winner earns him a place in the side, and he is joined by Juan Mata who scored the only goal at Old Trafford to help Chelsea record a hugely important 1-0 win.

Hal Robson-Kanu gave Reading fans something to cheer about after relegation to the Championship was confirmed last weekend, with his two goals at Craven Cottage contributing to a morale-boosting 4-2 win against Fulham.

In defence we feature three Southampton players after what was a stirling defensive display at White Hart Lane. Saints impressed throughout the 90 minutes leaving many sympathising with Mauricio Pochettino's team as they were undone by a superb Gareth Bale winner.

Despite that, Jose Fonte gets a central role, while promising full-backs Luke Shaw and Nathaniel Clyne join him in a back four. Everton's 0-0 draw in the 220th Merseyside derby owed much to the dogged defending of Phil Jagielka, who had an excellent game at the back for the Toffees.

Finally, Newcastle stand-in goalkeeper Rob Elliot finally secured his first Premier League clean sheet in the black and white stripes as Alan Pardew's Magpies withstood an Andy Carroll-shaped barrage to come away from east London with a goalless draw.
