John Ruddy (Norwich)
The Canaries shotstopper was a constant thorn in Chelsea's side during Saturday's meritable goalless draw at Carrow Road.
Micah Richards (Man City)
Despite letting Spurs back into the game, the stand-in captain led from the back for City with a powerful, imposing performance.

Zak Whitbread (Norwich)

Scored a wonderful free kick in the win against Wigan to top a performance full of flair and skill.
James Morrison (West Brom)
With a spectacular eye for goal, the midfielder added to his scrapbook of long-range efforts with his drive at Stoke.
Mark Davies (Bolton)
The unsung hero was a composed presence in the centre of the park as the Trotters recorded an invaluable win over Liverpool.
Juan Mata (Chelsea)
Although his team couldn't find the breakthrough against Norwich, the Spaniard was at the heart of many of their best moves with his pace and willingness to attack.
Robbie Keane (Aston Villa)
Two sensational strikes against Wolves cemented the Irishman's temporary place in the hearts of the Villa faithful.
Clint Dempsey (Fulham)
The first American to score a hat-trick in the Premier League, Dempsey proved against Newcastle why he could be targeted by bigger clubs over the summer.
