EPL: Team of the Week, Stalwart Midlander's and Revitalised Swedes

    Another round of exciting Premier League games have passed and I'll run the rule over who has offered their team the best performances this week.

    Some are blindingly obvious, indeed the rich vein of form found by some players this season has people talking about their inclusion in a team of the year, but for now, a weekly evaluation will have to do. 

Goalkeeper: Saving Grace For Foster

    Mr. Benjamin Foster takes this spot, hands down.

    Seemingly revitalised following his confidence sapping spell in Manchester, Foster has come to a club which had Joe Hart in goal last season and has done the position full justice.

    His performance against Chelsea was incredible and he was totally unbeatable saving numerous one-on-ones and one stunning point-blank save from Drogba.

    Birmingham's defence cannot be summed up by only their keeper: Roger Johnson was absolutely brilliant at the back against Chelsea, making countless tackles and interceptions and keeping Drogba relatively quiet. He has probably never been so deserving of the England call-up he so desperately wants. 

    Christopher Samba was key in a defence which kept the likes of Young, Albrighton and Agbonlahor quiet, and should be commended as such. The centre back with good pace and incredible strength is a match for anyone in the league. 

    Leighton Baines also had a great game this week. Despite conceding twice, Baines was heavily involved in most of Everton's attacking play, assisting Cahill's goal with a fantastic cross. He delivered several cracking corners into the box and it was only desperate defending which stopped him receiving a hat-trick of assists.

    Glen Johnson was back to form, chipping in with a goal and a good defensive presence against a team which only threatened rarely.

    Blackburn's Pederson had an outstanding match against Aston Villa, netting both goals to drag his team forward in the league. 

    Rafael van der Vaart, who has taken to the Premier League in a big way, claimed more goals and assists to his already impressive tally, meaning that van der Vaart is one of, if the the most effective attacking midfielder in England. He was integral to Tottenham's remarkable derby day come-back.  

    Stoke's Jonathon Walters was another to have a great individual game, scoring twice for a Stoke team who are finding a second wind. Hardly one of the exciting names of the league, Walters, nevertheless, put in a fantastic shift for his much unfancied outfit. 

Attack: Trotters Aplenty

    The Bolton front men are taking the EPL by storm, forming a partnership which is really firing on all cylinders recently. Johan Elmander and Kevin Davies have picked up their game, and it is because of them that Bolton are sitting pretty in fourth spot.

    Manchester City's talismanic striker, Carlos Tevez, also deserves a spot, having scored twice and leant an assist to Man City's comprehensive win over the cottagers this weekend.
