Sports Mole picks its 11 best players following another week of La Liga action.

Real Madrid made it consecutive wins in La Liga on the same weekend that Barcelona secured another three points with a late 3-2 victory over Sevilla.

There were also wins for Valencia, Malaga and Real Sociedad on Saturday. Meanwhile, Granada, Real Valladolid and Osasuna followed suit in what turned out to be a pulsating Sunday of Spanish action.

Atletico Madrid also continued their solid start to the season with victory over Getafe. Meanwhile, Getafe picked up just their second three points of the season against Mallorca on Monday.

Here, Sports Mole picks out the 11 players that made their mark in La Liga this week.

Thibaut Courtois (Atletico Madrid)
The on-loan Chelsea goalkeeper continues to impress and was magnificent in his side's 1-0 win over Espanyol on Sunday.

Miranda (Atletico Madrid)
The 28-year-old is enjoying one of his best seasons to date. His pace and reading of the game was of the highest order against Espanyol.
Antonio Rukavina (Real Valladolid)
The Serbian defender was on the scoresheet as his side recorded a 6-1 win over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday and was a constant menace in defence.
Emir Spahic (Sevilla)
The 32-year-old did not deserve to be on the losing side against Barcelona on Saturday. He threw himself in front of every effort, but ultimately it was not enough.

Fernando Gago (Valencia)
The Argentine midfielder was wonderful in his side's 2-0 win over Real Zaragoza on Saturday. He provided a defensive shield for his teammates and set up a host of attacks.
Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona)
The Spaniard entered his side's match against Sevilla having not scored a league goal since January. But he registered a second-half double to set his team up for all three points.
Isco (Malaga)
The young Spaniard scored and had a hand in two others as his side beat Real Betis 2-0 on Saturday. He really has turned heads with his performances this season.
Oscar (Real Valladolid)
The 29-year-old was instrumental in his side's 6-1 win over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday. He scored two and impressed with his composure on the ball.

Falcao (Atletico Madrid)
The Colombian striker scored another brace against Real Betis on Wednesday to take his tally to 10 goals in seven games this season. He really is up there with the best now.
Manucho (Real Valladolid)
The former Manchester United striker was a constant menace in attack as he scored two goals in his side's thumping win over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
The Portuguese skipper took his tally to six league goals this season with a fine hat-trick against Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.
