English Premiership Team of the Week 36:

1. Joe Hart (Manchester City) - City may have scored four (and conceded two) but Hart made a couple of key saves to deny Swansea a sniff of an ulmighty comeback. 

2. Antonio Valencia (Manchester United) - One of his best games at right back, the Ecuadorian was brilliant (especially in the first half) at providing the width and extra man down the right hand flank.

3. Patrick Van Aanholt (Sunderland) - A (almost unbelievable) consecutive inclusion for a defender in this team. Van Aanholt was at his best as Sunderland drew with Leicester City.

4. Chris Smalling (Manchester United) - Another defender with a repeat performance. Smalling took the captain's armband against the Gunners and was awfully close to keeping a clean sheet.

5. Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur) - A rare inclusion for a Spurs defender but the Belgian's afternoon against Hull was an example of his talent. 

6. Yaya Toure (Manchester City) - Toure was at the double as City held off Swansea. Could this be the last inclusion in this team for the Ivorian star who's tipped to be off to Paris in the summer? 

7. Ander Herrera (Manchester United) - The Spaniard was superb against Arsenal. Hardly misplaced a pass and popped up at the far post to strike Ashley Young's cross home.

8. Sadio Mane (Southampton) - His inclusion speaks for itself...

9. Yannick Bolaise (Crystal Palace) - Alan Pardew will struggle to keep hold of Bolaise in the summer. Was rampant against a poor Liverpool side on the day.

10. Shane Long (Southampton) - Shane Long makes his Team of the Week debut and rightly so after he netted a brace and providing two assists as Southampton destroyed Aston Villa. 

11. Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion) - Put himself back in the transfer shop window with a wonderful brace against the champions on Monday night.
