Team of the week
Jussi Jaaskelainen - West Ham United
Veteran goalkeeper made nine saves this weekend without conceding a single goal in the 3-0 home win over Fulham.
Carl Jenkinson - Arsenal
Young full-back has had his critics but he made six tackles and did not concede a single foul during the 2-0 victory at Liverpool.
HOW IS IT COMPILED?
The Opta TOTW is based on a scoring system that takes into account more than 300 types of metric for each player in each game. Everything from shots and passing to defensive interceptions accrue a positive or negative points score which is then used to rank players over a season or in an individual game.
Winston Reid - West Ham United
Centre-half made nine clearances, one block and two interceptions and only misplaced one pass inside his own half during West Ham's success over Fulham.
Jan Vertonghen - Tottenham Hotspur
Only Rio Ferdinand (20) made more clearances this weekend (19) than the Tottenham new boy.
Kieran Gibbs - Arsenal
Another Arsenal full-back gets into the team as Gibbs misplaced just five passes en route to the Gunners' third successive clean sheet.
Jonathan De Guzman - Swansea City
Swansea's summer signing made 84 successful passes, with an overall completion rate of 96.6% in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland.
Santi Cazorla - Arsenal
The Spanish playmaker is in the Team of the Week again after creating Lukas Podolski's opener and then scoring the second goal himself in the 2-0 win at Liverpool.
Yaya Toure - Manchester City
The Ivory Coast midfielder scored the opening goal and made 81 successful passes, 26 of which were into the final third, during City's 3-1 home win over Queens Park Rangers.
Lukas Podolski - Arsenal
The Germany international scored his first goal for Arsenal with his only unblocked shot of the game and created Cazorla's goal in the triumph at Anfield.
Robin van Persie - Manchester United
The Red Devils striker scored a hat-trick from 11 shots in total in the 3-2 win at Southampton, and missed a penalty, as he took his tally to four goals in three appearances since his move from Arsenal.
Nathan Dyer - Swansea City
The winger completed 30 passes into the final third, and also had three shots on target, during the draw with Sunderland at the Liberty Stadium.
