GOALKEEPER - WAYNE HENNESSEY

Wales international goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey made seven saves as Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against struggling Newcastle United at Selhurst Park on Sunday to earn a spot between the posts in our Team of the Weekend.

RIGHT-BACK - ANTONIO VALENCIA

Versatile and long-serving Manchester United player Antonio Valencia, approaching veteran status at the age of 32, recovered possession five times and made two interceptions in his team's 2-0 win over Huddersfield at Old Trafford to demonstrate the hard-working Ecuadorian's continuing value to Jose Mourinho.

CENTRE-BACK - LAURENT KOSCIELNY

Frenchman Laurent Koscielny made nine clearances in Arsenal's 5-1 win over Everton; the most of any player for the Gunners, and he also weighed in with the second goal during the rampant victory over Sam Allardyce's sorry visitors at Emirates Stadium.

CENTRE-BACK - MARCOS ROJO

Argentina international Rojo, joined in the team by fellow South American Alexis Sanchez, completed 94 per cent of his passes against Huddersfield, with 36 of his 88 passes coming in the opposition half, as he helped the Red Devils to keep a clean sheet against David Wagner's dogged Terriers.

LEFT-BACK - DANILO

Danilo scored Manchester City's only goal against Burnley, a spectacular looping effort from outside the area, and also made the most tackles of any player for Pep Guardiola's team (four), although he was unable to prevent the hosts from snatching a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor.

CENTRAL MIDFIELD - MARIO LEMINA

Mario Lemina recovered possession on 10 occasions for Southampton in a 3-1 win over West Brom at The Hawthorns; the most of any player for the Saints, and he also happened to lash home a stunning first goal for the club from long range to equalise shortly before half-time.

CENTRAL MIDFIELD - AARON RAMSEY

Aaron Ramsey scored his first Premier League hat-trick from just three shots in the Gunners' thumping 5-1 win over Everton. 

The Wales midfielder became the 20th player to score a Premier League hat-trick for Arsenal, more than any other team can boast in the competition. 

Ramsey has been directly involved in 101 goals for Arsenal in all competition (53 goals, 48 assists).

ATTACKING MIDFIELD - MOHAMED SALAH

Mohamed Salah netted a brace for Liverpool, converting both of his two shots on target in the game, with the second a stunning late solo effort that looked to have won it for the Reds, before Harry Kane snatched a point in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Anfield.

ATTACKING MIDFIELD - PASCAL GROSS

German Pascal Gross was directly involved in two of Brighton's goals in a 3-1 win at home to West Ham, scoring one and assisting another for Glenn Murray, although Jose Izquierdo's brilliant dipping strike was the pick of the bunch for the Seagulls.

ATTACKING MIDFIELD - ALEXIS SANCHEZ

Chile international Alexis Sanchez, lured away from Arsenal during the January transfer window, scored Manchester United's second of the game to open his account for his new club and also made three key passes for his team in their 2-0 win over Huddersfield.

STRIKER - PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG

A club-record signing from Borussia Dortmund, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on his Premier League debut in the hefty win over Everton, and the Gabon international also provided a 'second assist' for the Gunners' opening goal, as he made a flying start to life in north London.
