If you're looking for a forward to take players on, chase down the defence all match, thread clever little passes and be a creative outlet, Andy Carroll probably isn't your man.
However, what he did offer against West Brom was a thoroughly effective performance.
He scored two unstoppable and very well-taken goals to earn his team three points. Carroll is a menace in the air and seems to be getting his fitness and confidence of late.
However, he still has to convince plenty of watchers of his capacity to contribute over an entire campaign at the top.
A bullet header and a volley on the swivel provided two of the best goals of the weekend, though, and that earns him a spot in the team of the week.
Alongside him a man who is finishing the season in fine form: Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez.
Having scored against Liverpool last time out, he added another to his collection with a beautifully worked and finished strike against Chelsea this weekend. This goal capped an all-action (but very technical) display.
Southampton were arguably the better side overall, which was in no small part due to the terrific work rate and link-up play of a front line led by Rodriguez, who now has five league goals for the season.
