I’ve chosen a standard 4-4-2 formation.

GK: Edwin van der Sar (Manchester United)
He might be forty, but it never showed.  The Dutchman was above everything Wigan had to throw at him.

RB: Nicky Shorey (West Brom)
A good performance by the full back, helped ensured they kept liverpool at bay and achieve a great result.

CB: Chris Smalling (Manchester United)
A shaky start, but the youngster soon found his footing and provided another reliable performance.

CB: Richard Dunne (Aston Villa)
Another strong centre-back, helped keep the villa backline in control and on the road to victory.

LB: Leighton Baines (Everton)
Helped keep Sunderland out and held steady when tested.

RM: Ashley Young (Aston Villa)
Why he isnt an England regular I will never know, fast and powerful all game. Well taken penalty and great second goal.

CM: Scott Parker (West Ham)
A trooper for West Ham, despite the injury he played supurbly and kept encouraging the team forward.

CM: Jamie O’Hara (Wolverhampton)
The combative midfielder fought hard to give wolves a well deserved victory and managed to grab a goal.

LM: Nani (Manchester United)
Every part of his play screams ronaldo, and could eventually become better than him.  Unluckly this time not to get on the score sheet but made some lovely assists.

FW: Jermaine Beckford (Everton)
Everton’s hero, grabbing two great goals and giving the team a well needed victory.

FW: Javier Hernandez (Manchester United)
Use him as a starter, use him as a substitute, it doesnt matter he’ll score anyway, and always in style.


Brad Friedel (Aston Villa)
The Villa veteran did well to keep Blackburn out, and by the time they scored, the game was well over.
Matthew Upson (West Ham)
Kept Liverpool searching for ways to break through the entire game.
Cheik Tiote (Newcastle)
The midfielder fought hard to keep the Newcastle midfield organised.
Robert Pires (Aston Villa)
The frenchman has lost none of his class from his time at Arsenal.  Great to see him back in the premier league.
Marc Albrighton (Aston Villa)
The winger was excellent going forward, and with Young on the opposite wing, the team were hard to stop.
Louis Saha (Everton)
The former Man United striker is almost back to his best.  Always a threat when the ball is around him.
Sylvain Ebanks-Blake (Wolverhampton)
The striker came on to cap off an excellent game for Wolves. A great performance.
