Things are really heating up as we get to the business end of the Premier League season, and Man Utd's victory over Chelsea is exactly what Spurs needed burst the title-race wide open.
Tottenham outclassed Bournemouth, Everton picked up another win, and Liverpool claimed a huge result in the race for top four away to West Brom, and those three sides all have players featured in our team of the week.
Once again the much maligned Belgian keeper kept his side alive with important saves in a very tight affair.
Mignolet has been quietly going about his business and looks to be playing much better football as a result of his improved confidence.

Though he was playing slightly out of position at right-back for Hull against Stoke, Maguire did not look uncomfortable.
The 24-year-old bagged a goal for himself in the 3-1 loss to Stoke and continues to impress.

Vertonghen has been superb for Spurs this season. That form continued on Saturday.
While Tottenham have been in the headlines for their goalscoring in recent times, it should also be noted that they have been fantastic defensively and Vertonghen is a big part of that.
Jan Vertonghen completed a whopping 89 passes today; more than any other Premier League player today.

The Spaniard was absolutely magnificent as Man Utd beat Chelsea without Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan, as he claimed a goal and an assist while marking Eden Hazard out of the game.
His best performance in a United shirt was enough to earn a spot in the team of the week.

After a very difficult week where he was physically assaulted in a nightclub and then essentially mocked for it by the vile Kelvin MacKenzie, Barkley would have wanted a big performance to get the discussion back on football.
He created an own goal in a very confidence performance that delighted the Everton fans.
Another important win today... ? pic.twitter.com/SI8VIE0qDD

Kevin De Bruyne
De Bruyne starred for Man City in their 3-0 win Southampton at St. Mary's. The Belgian set up two of City's second half goals, one for Leroy Sane and one for Sergio Aguero.
He now has the most assists in the league this season.
13 - Kevin De Bruyne has provided more assists than any other player in the Premier League this season (two today). Wizard.
