Premier League - Team of the Week: Three-Gun salute
The American was brought into the team at the expense of Shay Given and rewarded Paul Lambert with a fine display, making a crucial late save to hold Newcastle to a 1-1 draw.
RB: Russell Martin (Norwich)
Martin was involved in Norwich's equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Fulham as he helped the ball on to Snodgrass and earlier hit the bar with a header as he contributed greatly to the Canaries' efforts in attack.
CB: Gary Caldwell (Wigan)
Wigan's captain was shaky at stages last season but has started the new campaign in scintillating form. Caldwell was at his best again in a 2-2 draw with Stoke, putting his body on the line with a succession of blocks.
CB: Thomas Vermaelen (Arsenal)
A captain's display from the Belgian as he led by example with some resolute defending in a 2-0 win at Anfield. Vermaelen helped restrict the impact made by former Ajax team-mate Luis Suarez and put in a series of crucial challenges.
LB: Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal)
The England international linked up well with Lukas Podolski on the left flank and also helped keep Liverpool forward Fabio Borini quiet as Arsenal started the season with three clean sheets for the first time since 1924-25.
MD: Hatem Ben Arfa (Newcastle)
Ben Arfa scored one of the early contenders for the goal of the season award with his rasping long-range effort after 59 minutes of the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa and troubled the visitors all afternoon with his delivery and shooting.
MD: Abou Diaby (Arsenal)
The Frenchman produced arguably his best performance in an Arsenal shirt in four years as he bossed the midfield at Anfield. Full of clever little turns and tricks, his dynamism in a box-to-box role and tidy passing also contributed greatly to Arsenal's victory.
MD: Robert Snodgrass (Norwich City)
The Scot arrived at Norwich from Leeds this summer and has made an immediate impact from his position out wide in midfield. Snodgrass scored the late equaliser against Tottenham but was a threat throughout at White Hart Lane.
Eyebrows were raised when Sunderland paid £12 million to sign the striker from Wolves towards the end of the transfer window but on his Premier League debut the Scottish striker scored twice in a 2-2 draw away at Swansea.
Now a happy man in Manchester, Tevez is back to his influential best for City and on Saturday he scored the third and final goal in a 3-1 home win over QPR as well as assisting Edin Dzeko for the second and seeing his shot deflect into the path of Yaya Toure for the opener.
The Dutchman was guilty of a rather embarrassing moment from the penalty spot at Southampton but rectified that mistake when scoring twice in the closing minutes to secure a hat-trick and a dramatic 3-2 win for United. Now has four goals in two starts for his new club.
