Premier League Team of the Week: Mata, Sturridge, Adebayor and More

Another round of Premier League matches has been completed, but for once, that does not seem to matter.

Gary Speed's passing has entirely overshadowed the weekend's action. He was a gifted footballer, often under-appreciated, a promising manager and, from the words of everyone who knew him, a truly great man. He leaves behind a wife and two children. I think I can speak for all football fans when I say our thoughts are with them.

The weekend's action was of as high a quality as ever, and there were some big fixtures played. Manchester United vs Newcastle is not normally a big game, but Newcastle have earned their reputation as tough customers and earned a credible point at Old Trafford.

Liverpool vs Manchester City was the other big fixture and, like their cross-town rivals, City were held to a 1-1 draw.

Elsewhere, Tottenham continued their fantastic run of form and Robin van Persie, somewhat surprisingly, was not among the goals.

Players from eight sides feature in this week's team, which lines up in a 4-4-2 formation.

So, here is the Premier League Team of the Week. Please leave any comments, or stories you might have about Gary Speed in the comment section below.
