Premier League - Team of the Week: Kenwyne can win!!!
Find out who joins Kenwyne Jones in our elite XI from the weekend's Premier League action!!!
Mark Schwarzer (Fulham)
The Australian picked up his third clean sheet of the season as the Whites claimed a point at St James' Park. Having been unsettled by rumours of a move earlier in the season, Schwarzer is back to his old self.
Nedum Onuoha (Sunderland)
The defender became the first Sunderland player not named 'Bent' or 'Gyan' to score this season as his amazing solo goal put the Black Cats on the way to a 3-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Johan Djourou (Arsenal)
The Swiss youngster proved an able stand-in at Everton with Thomas Vermaelen and Laurent Koscielny missing, perhaps making Arsene Wenger reconsider whether he really needs defensive reinforcements.
Scott Dann (Birmingham City)
The big centre-back was effective at both ends of the pitch as Birmingham picked up an unexpected point away to Manchester City. Dann's towering aerial presence kept one Carlos Tevez under wraps.
Gareth Bale (Tottenham Hotspur)
Yes, he was playing in midfield, but we had to get him in the team somehow. The Welshman continued his imperious form with two goals and an assist in Tottenham's 4-2 win at home to Blackburn.
Lee Chung-Yong (Bolton Wanderers)
The ever-impressive Korean played a key role in Bolton's 3-2 win away to Wolves, setting up Stuart Holden's goal and causing no end of trouble down the right flank.
Scott Parker (West Ham)
For better or worse, he has become the Hammers' heartbeat and their only realistic chance of avoiding relegation. He once again played a starring role in probably the best goalless draw ever against Blackpool.
Charlie Adam (Blackpool)
Ian Holloway might not agree, but what Parker does for West Ham, Adam does for Blackpool. The Tangerines skipper nearly scored one of the goals of the season at Upton Park with a lob from halfway that drifted just over.
Stewart Downing (Aston Villa)
Remember him? Every England fan's one-time nemesis has been in cracking form for Villa this season, and tore Manchester United to shreds, getting the assist for Marc Albrighton's goal.
Asamoah Gyan (Sunderland)
The Black Cats' record signing continues to lead the line with aplomb in Darren Bent's absence. The Ghanaian's pace and agility makes him a nightmare to defend against, and he finished coolly for Sunderland's second at Chelsea.
Kenwyne Jones (Stoke City)
The big Trinidad and Tobago striker scored Stoke's second goal against Liverpool to round off a superb all-round display as his aerial presence and sheer strength inspired the Potters to a famous win.
