The United States international kept a clean sheet as Everton defeated West Brom 2-0 to move ahead of Liverpool and into seventh place, the highlight being a fine save to deny Paul Scharner.
Another American to make our selection, the young full-back opened his Premier League account for Villa to level at 2-2 but was unable to prevent Chelsea from coming away with a 4-2 win at Villa Park.
A determined performance from the Spurs star, who has enjoyed an excellent campaign at White Hart Lane. He was in dominant form at the back, blocking and tackling with relish to deny Swansea.
The defender's acclimatisation to life in the Premier League hasn't always been smooth, but he enjoyed a fantastic performance in the 2-0 win over Liverpool and hit the post as well as producing a towering performance at the back.
Though normally a midfielder, Colback was pressed into action at full-back and responded with a fine performance as he helped contain Micah Richards and Mario Balotelli, amongst others.
The Croatian was in brilliant form in a 3-1 home win over Swansea as he caressed the ball around the pitch in his usual accomplished fashion and also created the first goal with a sumptuous pass down the line.
Though he was on the losing side in a 2-1 defeat at Fulham, Howson ran the show in the centre of midfield to demonstrate once again why prising him from Leeds United in January was such a savvy decision by Paul Lambert.
Okay, so he actually played on the left on Sunday but we had to find a place for the Welshman after a stunning display against Swansea. Bale was a force of nature throughout the 90 minutes, tearing the promoted side apart.
Involved in two of Sunderland's three goals in their 3-3 draw with Manchester City, the playmaker produced another influential performance as he created chance after chance as the visitors ended City's lengthy winning streak at home.
It was an emotional weekend for the winger after his good friend Stiliyan Petrov was diagnosed with leukaemia, and the Bolton star had the chance to reveal a t-shirt dedicated to the Aston Villa captain when capping a fine performance with a converted penalty against Wolves.
Two goals slayed Liverpool, the first of which was an excellent header back across goal and the second a composed finish after taking the ball round Jose Reina. Another excellent afternoon's work for the January signing.
