Premier League team of the week - by Jason Burt

The weekend plaudits go to Arsenal and their manager Arsene Wenger and rightly so after they produced an outstanding performance – maybe even the performance of the season so far – in out-running, out-fighting and beating Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby. The big question now is having set that standard can they maintain it rather than get wrapped up in selfies social media posting and bragging rights. Recent history suggests not. This team lines up in a 4-3-3 and is managed by Wenger. Heurelho Gomes - goalkeeper  Three brilliant saves from the veteran goalkeeper – including a remarkable double-save – again showed why he is such a cult hero at Watford. Hector Bellerin -right-back  Not been his best season at Arsenal but his dynamic and defensively strong display in the north London derby showed why many regard him as – one his day – the best right-back in the Premier League.  Mustafi was excellent in Arsenal's win over Spurs Credit: GETTY IMAGES Shkodran Mustafi - centre-back  Got his body in the way, tackled, blocked, and was a defensive rock. Quite superb performance from a player who has been such a disappointment since his move to Arsenal. Now he, too, has set the standard. James Tarkowski - centre-back It would have been wrong not to include a Burnley player in the team of the weekend and Tarkowski epitomises them this season as he has got into the team and shown they do not miss Michael Keane. Beating Spurs is Arsenal's Cup final 39:00 Marvin Zeegelaar - left-back  A bloody nose, from an Andy Carroll elbow, inside 30 seconds did not stop the Dutch full-back going on to make an outstanding debut for Watford. Got forward superbly. Kevin De Bruyne - midfielder  Scored another breathtaking goal and has it all. Can score of either foot, assists, passes and gets around the pitch. The best player in the Premier League this season. Jason Burt's team of the weekend Paul Pogba - midfielder Back from his hamstring injury and not yet fully fit Pogba transformed Manchester United – not just in the way they played but in the mood. Scored as well. Mesut Ozil - midfielder When he plays like this he is one of the best in the world. Added work-rate to creativity and appeared to be focussed and motivated. What a difference that makes when a player has as much talent as Ozil. Eden Hazard dribbles round Ben Foster to score his first goal of the game against West Brom Credit: GETTY IMAGES Eden Hazard - forward  Hazard takes the kicks and creates – and scores – the goals. A world-class talent his link-up with Alvaro Morata can be sensational at times. Callum Wilson - striker  The Bournemouth striker’s hat-trick was the story of the weekend. Has been so unlucky with serious injury. Otherwise he would be in the England squad now. Mohamed Salah - forward Jurgen Klopp said Salah can score 70 goals this season and although he will not do that he is quick, with an eye for goal and perfect for Liverpool’s system.
