Premier League Team of the Week: Man U's Nani Does it Again
This week's team is a mixed bag, with only three teams having two representatives in the first eleven.
The 17 matches generated 31 glorious goals, with Chelsea and Manchester United keeping the pace at the top of the division.
Unfortunately, for Arsenal, two very tricky ties saw them garner only one point and drop away from the leaders in the title race.
Everton, who have been suffering in the early part of the season from some cruel injuries, has started to show the sort of form that have had them on the fringe of the Champions League sports for the past few years.
However, at the other end the Premiership, the teams in jeopardy of the drop didn't manage a win between them.
Portsmouth, Burnley, Wigan, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Hull City couldn't muster a win between them, which keeps the battle for survival just as tight as ever.
But, who was good enough to make the team of the week?
GK: Brian Jensen (Burnley)
Despite Burnley not winning a game this week with losses to relegation rivals Bolton and Champions elect Chelsea, the Clarets goalkeeper was the difference between defeat and hammerings.
He managed to keep Bolton to only one goal and a red-hot Chelsea team to a 2-1 victory.
The Burnley keeper is certainly showing his class in his club's hour of need. It is a shame that for all his efforts, his team could not gain a single point.
DF: Emilano Insua (Liverpool)
The Liverpool defender was an immovable object against Bolton this weekend, and it would be a very tough task for anyone to have played better than Insua this weekend.
DF: Richard Dunne (Aston Villa)
The player sacrificed by Manchester City so that they could capture the signature of Villa's want away captain, Gareth Barry was impervious this week. First against Arsenal, then against Fulham.
With his centre back partner the Spaniard, Carlos Cuellar, they were fantastic, but the Irishman edged out Cuellar for one of the centre backs of the week.
DF: William Gallas (Arsenal)
Gallas managed to keep the Villain's Gabby Agbonlahor in his pocket with the visit of the Gunners to Villa Park.
If ever there were doubt about Gallas' ability, then they need to not look any further than this performance to see why he has been one of the first names on the Gunners' team sheet, as well as France's, for so long.
DF: Leighton Baines (Everton)
The Everton left back who has been knocking on the door of the England squad for some time showed just why he should be on the plane to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup.
Against both Wigan and Sunderland, Baines' foraging runs forward were a constant thorn in the side for opposing defenders, whilst being a rock at the back for the Toffees.
MF: David Bentley (Tottenham Hotspur)
Bentley has had a hard time in the capital since his move South, but this weekend against Birmingham City he showed just why he was an England International and the heir to David Beckham's England shirt.
All afternoon, Bentley cut through the Birmingham's defense like a hot knife through cold butter.
MF: Nani (Manchester United)
The Portuguese midfielder was a contentious pick last week, with some commenting on how his inclusion was nothing but a fluke. Today against title rivals Arsenal, Nani had the game of his life.
Nani looks like he could be the heir to Cristiano Ronaldo's crown as the Red Devils' playmaker, if only he can keep up this standard.
MF: Marouane Fellaini (Everton)
The often-maligned Fellaini was phenomenal this week, with the sort of display that clearly showed why David Moyes signed the Belgian.
Against Sunderland in the Toffees' two-nil victory, the afro-haired midfielder controlled the midfield like a seasoned general, not allowing the accomplished Sunderland midfielder a look at the ball for much of the game.
MF: Joe Cole (Chelsea)
In the absence of Joe Cole, the England team has been winning, but have they been winning with style?
The return of Cole to the Chelsea side has been like finding a lost gem, as his fleet-footed ball control has helped maintain the Blues spot at the top of the Premiership.
Against Burnley and Birmingham City, he was magnificent and it will be very hard for Carlo Ancelotti to drop the England International.
FW: Gabriel Agbonlahor (Aston Villa)
Agbonlahor was the inspiration behind the Villains' two goal victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Despite having to fight for his place against the talented John Carew, Agbonlahor is showing just why Martin O'Neil prized the young striker so highly.
FW: Nicolas Anelka (Chelsea)
Against Burnley, Anelka demonstrated just why Chelsea are the title favourites.
His opening goal for the Blues was simplicity itself from the Frenchman, but he never let the Clarets' defense rest.
Goal of the Week: Jermain Defoe
Defoe's difficult volley was hammered past the despairing dive of Birmingham City's Paul Hart.
Save of the Week: Vladimir Stojkovic
The Wigan keepers athletic dive to palm away a free kick from Eveton's Leighton Baines was the best of a series of very fine saves by the Serbian.
If the Wigan keeper hadn't been on such good form, chances are the Latics would have lost by a lot more than a single goal.
Player of the Week: Richard Dunne
The Irish defender was fantastic this week with commanding performances against both Arsenal and Fulham.
The American international Landon Donovan is proving his critics wrong by once again putting in performances this week that make it clear why Moyes signed him on loan.
Donovan's American compatriot, Jozy Altidore, of Hull City was the inspiration behind Jan Vanegoor of Hesselink's opener for the Tigers.
When others would have tried to win a penalty by cynically diving at the slightest touch or selfishly tried to score themselves, the young striker chose instead to play with his strike partner, who was in a better set to score.
Spurs, Wilson Palacios of Honduras was formidable this week with crunching tackles and inspired play, but didn't quite make the team of the week.
Wolves, Kevin Doyle worked tirelessly against Liverpool and despite not finding the net against the Reds, clearly deserved it.
That's it for another week, but who do you think should have made the team? Do you agree with my selections or was I way off the mark?
If I got it wrong, please let me know in the comments section. See you next week.
