Presenting The Balls.ie Premier League Team Of The Weekend
By Paul McGoldrick

On a dramatic weekend of Premier League football, these were the eleven men who truly distinguished themselves.

GK - Eldin Jakupovic

Jakupovic has played a critical part in Hull's gritty battle to retain their Premier League place and should they survive by a margin of two points, his save on Tadic's penalty yesterday in second half injury time will inspire folk songs. Lots of competition at this position this weekend with Cech's outstanding performance in defeat and Lloris's first-ever North London derby clean sheet, but the Swiss Kosovar gets the nod.

D - Calum Chambers

Boro may be all but relegated by Calum Chambers made a strong case that he belongs in the Premier League today with an outstanding performance at the heart of the Middlesbrough defense. Chambers scored in the second half and was everywhere as Boro held on for a potentially vital point.

D- Gary Cahill

A pretty good day at the office for the Chelsea on-pitch captain. Scores another goal against Everton, his team keeps a clean sheet and the Premier League is all but won.

D - Jan Vertonghen

It's hard to remember a North London derby where Arsenal played this bad but credit to Vertonghen who anchored the imperious Spurs back three and deserved at least one goal. On a day of fine attacking performances, he was Sky's man of the match.

MF - Gylfi Sigurdsson

Added another goal from a wonderfully-taken free kick to make this season even sweeter. Possibly the best free kick taker in the league.

MF - Christian Eriksen

Was a constant menace all afternoon for Spurs. He created the first goal on his own and had the Arsenal defense bricking it all afternoon.

MF - Pedro

Perdo is one of the many players who have been revived by Conte and the breathtaking goal he scored today seemed to break Everton's will.

MF - Son Heung-min

Alli and Kane were important Spurs's mangling of the old enemy today but Son was irrepressible all afternoon for Tottenham.

F - Sergio Aguero

A Champions League place is hardly guaranteed for City but where would they be without Aguero? Kun scored and had an  assist on the Jesus equaliser. Pep will be nervously waiting on an update on his fitness for the final four matches.

F - Josh King

The second Scandinavian to make this list. King now shares the record for most goals by a Norweigan after slotting in a deft winner to relegate Sunderland. His Bournemouth team have scored as many goals as Manchester United this season, which is truly staggering. King was surely get paid like one this summer.

F - Ashley Barnes

On a woeful weekend for strikers, Barnes not only scored for Burnley, but managed the rarely-seen 'rowing a boat' goalscoring routine for a goal that would be disallowed.
