English Premiership Team of the Week 16:

1. Joe Hart (Manchester City) - Despite winning their Swansea City fixture, it was the England 'keeper who kept The Citizens in the game.

2. Allan Nyom (Watford) - Assisted in Odion Ighalo's 10th goal of the season and fared well against an eager Sunderland who went a goal down within five minutes of the encounter. 

3. Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal) - Rock solid for the Gunners and has put in strong performances for the club following the Paris attacks which traumatised the Frenchman.

4. Robert Huth (Leicester City) - The defender doesn't often receive praise because of Mahrez and Vardy getting all the attention, but Huth has been a stalwart in Claudio Ranieri's defence.

5. Leighton Baines (Everton) - The left-back has had a quiet comeback following injury and is starting to look like his old self again.

6. Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) - Ever since returning from injury the midfielder has slotted easily into Arsenal's midfield when needed.

7. Georginio Wijnaldum (Newcastle United) - In the dying seconds of the game the talented Dutchman lobbed a ball towards Ayoze Pérez who put the ball in the back of the net. He runs the show for United.

8. Joshua King (Bournemouth AFC) - Treated Manchester United's defence as if they were beacons during a training session.

9. Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) - Chelsea's Cesar Azpilicueta is probably still wondering how Mahrez found the back of the net from the right flank.

10. Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) - 15 goals and his last one was beautifully worked against Chelsea.

11. Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) - It was a big week for the Frenchman and he topped it off with a fourth goal to add to his hat-trick in the Champions League.
