Cape Town - David De Gea's inspired performance against Liverpool ensures he takes the gloves in the EPL Team of the Week 16.

Manchester United's clash with arch-rivals Liverpool was the headline fixture for Week 16 in the English Premiership. While the 3-0 scoreline suggests a drubbing, Liverpool were unlucky not to get more out of a fixture that they dominated for large parts.

David De Gea made several key saves to keep Raheem Sterling and Mario Balotelli off the scoresheet before Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and then Robin van Persie sent United fans into hysterics.

Chelsea eased past Hull City at home despite not getting out of second gear while Manchester City managed to overcome a plucky Leicester City side.

Arsenal nullified the threat of a resurgent Newcastle United to keep pace in the race for the Champions League places.

EPL Team of the Week 16:

1. David De Gea - Manchester United

2. Hector Bellerin - Arsenal

3. Andre Wisdom - West Brom

4. Eliaquim Mangala - Manchester City

5. Michael Carrick - Manchester United

6. Frank Lampard - Manchester City

7. Christian Eriksen - Tottenham Hotspur

8. Santi Cazorla - Arsenal

9. Eden Hazard - Chelsea

10. Ross Barkley - Everton

11. Olivier Giroud - Arsenal
