TEAMtalk's Top Men (4-2-3-1): David Marshall, Seamus Coleman, Laurent Koscielny, Martin Demichelis, Jon Flanagan; Fabian Delph, Steven Gerrard; Jay Rodriguez, Stephen Ireland, David Silva; Luis Suarez.

David Marshall - Cardiff City: They weren't quite able to hold on for a valuable point at Everton, but Cardiff were still indebted to Marshall for keeping them in the game. He made terrific saves from Romelu Lukaku, Gerard Deulofeu and Kevin Mirallas.

Seamus Coleman - Everton: In the end, it took an accidentally sliced shot from Coleman to earn Everton the three points. While the finish was fortuitious, Coleman still deserves great credit for getting himself into the right position with the clock running down. He is the top-scoring defender in the Premier League this season.

Laurent Koscielny - Arsenal: After taking the lead within two minutes, Arsenal had to do plenty of defending to hold on for a crucial 1-0 win at Tottenham on Sunday. For all the hosts' possession, they failed to create too many clear-cut chances, with Koscielny and Per Mertesacker imperious at the back for the Gunners. The former's crowning moment came when he threw himself in front of the ball to stop Nacer Chadli from scoring after Wojciech Szczesny had fumbled.

Martin Demichelis - Manchester City: The visiting supporters must have feared the worst when Vincent Kompany was sent-off early on at Hull City on Saturday, but Demichelis produced one of his best performances for the club to date to help ensure they not only won but kept a clean sheet.

Jon Flanagan - Liverpool: Like Rafael, Flanagan benefited from some leniency from referee Mark Clattenburg. However, that should take nothing away from a brilliant defensive performance from the Liverpool youngster, who hared up and down the left flank to stop United in their tracks.

Fabian Delph - Aston Villa: His goal was a thing of beauty, but Villa boss Paul Lambert said after the win over Chelsea that Delph's performance proved he can mix it with the best midfielders in the Premier League. He was equally superb whether defending or attacking.

Steven Gerrard - Liverpool: He may have missed the chance to record a unique hat-trick, but Gerrard had already done the damage by then, showing nerves of steel to convert two penalties at Old Trafford. The visitors' midfield trio of Gerrard, Joe Allen and Jordan Henderson were all superb, but those two memorable goals meant the day belonged to the Reds skipper.

Jay Rodriguez - Southampton: Of Southampton's new England internationals, it is Rodriguez that seems to have least chance of making the World Cup squad. Roy Hodgson was at St Mary's on Saturday, though, and will surely be considering Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Rodriguez, who was once again excellent in Saints' 4-2 win over Norwich, grabbing his 14th goal of the season.

Stephen Ireland - Stoke City: His career has not exactly panned out the way he would have wanted, but Ireland has the chance to rejuvenate it at Stoke under his old Manchester City boss, Mark Hughes. Given his chance against West Ham on Saturday, Ireland played a pivotal role in an eye-catching attacking performance from the Potters. The Irishman had a hand in all three goals and could have scored twice himself.

David Silva - Manchester City: Just minutes after Kompany's early red card, Silva scored one of the goals of the weekend to earn his side a crucial lead at Hull City. He used the ball intelligently throughout and helped make sure of the win late on, slipping through Edin Dzeko for the visitors' second.

Luis Suarez - Liverpool: Although they needed two penalties to put themselves in the driving seat, Liverpool were better in every area of the pitch than Manchester United. Suarez and Daniel Sturridge caused the hosts' back four constant problems with their runs off the back of defenders and, after forcing David De Gea into one terrific save, Suarez pounced in the closing stages to earn himself a deserved goal.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
