English Premiership Team of the Week 15:

1. Artur Boruc (Bournemouth) - The veteran 'keeper put together seven saves to claim a clean sheet and an away victory over Chelsea.

2. Chris Smalling (Manchester United) - While wearing the captains armband in Wayne Rooney's absence the defender has controlled United's defence in their goalless stalemate.

3. Winston Reid (West Ham United) - The defender handled the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Anthony Martial in a professional manner.

4. John Stones (Everton) - The youngster just does his basics right and when he becomes comfortable can attack.

5. Adam Smith (Bournemouth) - A clean sheet against a depleting Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Smith put in a hardworking shift.

6. Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) - Three goals. What more can we say of Mahrez? 

7. Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) - Ramsey gets the nod ahead of United's Moussa Sissoko as the Welshman starts to pick up form.

8. Georginio Wijnaldum (Newcastle United) - One goal deflected off Martin Skrtel and the other a clear cut finish - the Dutchman is becoming comfortable in the EPL.

9. Xherdan Shaqiri (Stoke City) - Assisted both goals in Stoke's 2-0 win over Manchester City.

10. Odion Ighalo (Watford) - Set up the first goal and then added his name to the tally later on the in game.

11. Marko Arnautovic (Stoke City) - Despite two pin-point passes from Shaqiri the striker had to do some serious work to put the ball behind the net.
