thumbnail Hello,

The Gunners feature heavily in our side following their win over Liverpool, while Van Persie makes his debut after his hat-trick in Manchester United's 3-2 victory at Southampton

No fewer than four Arsenal players feature in our XI this week, after the Gunners secured their first win of the season against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Goalscorer Santi Cazorla stars alongside Thomas Vermaelen, Mikel Arteta and Abou Diaby in our side, although striker Lukas Podolski just misses out despite opening the scoring in the 2-0 victory.

Former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie makes his TOTW debut for new club Manchester United after his hat-trick earned the Red Devils a 3-2 comeback victory away to Southampton, and partnering him up front is Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, who makes his second appearance in our XI this season.

Gareth McAuley is included in defence after he found the back of the net as well as helped to keep a clean sheet in West Brom’s 2-0 win over Everton, while Newcastle’s Fabricio Coloccini completes our backline.

Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel and Norwich City midfielder Robert Snodgrass are both included following the 1-1 draw between the two sides on Saturday, with both players influential at White Hart Lane.

Nathan Dyer rounds off our XI with his second appearance of the season after the wideman helped Swansea City to a 2-2 draw at home to Sunderland, although striker Steven Fletcher is unfortunate to miss out after he scored twice on his Black Cats debut

Elsewhere, Hatem Ben Arfa, Mousa Dembele, Morgan Schneiderlin and Andy Carroll also just fail to make the cut.
