Thomas Vermaelen (Arsenal)
The versatile defender was rewarded for his recent good form when he popped up with a 90th-minute winner against Newcastle on Monday night.
Jonny Evans (Man Utd)

Leighton Baines (Everton)
The dynamic full-back banished memories of a difficult Merseyside derby at the start of the week with a fine attacking display against Sunderland on Saturday.

Antonio Valencia (Man Utd)
The Ecuadorean is a daunting force when fully fit, as a helpless Wolves defence can testify.
Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)
The Merseysiders' talisman broke Everton hearts yet again at the start of the week with an classy hat-trick at Anfield.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (Swansea)
Is there a more underrated midfielder in the Premier League? His well-taken brace against Fulham suggests maybe not.
Stewart Downing (Liverpool)
The much-maligned winger answered many critics' on Sunday with an assured performance and goal against Stoke.

Fernando Torres (Chelsea)
