Goalkeeper: Claudio Bravo (Manchester City)

Recalled after traumatic outings against Everton and Tottenham Hotspur, the Chilean earned City a replay with fine saves from Jack Payne and Rajiv van la Parra.


Right-back: Shaun Cummings (Millwall)

The full-back showed his sense of adventure to pop up in the Leicester City box and score a last-minute winner for 10-man Millwall.


Centre-back: Sean Raggett (Lincoln City)

Scored perhaps the most famous goal in Lincoln’s history as they became the first non-league side for 28 years to knock out top-flight opponents.


Centre-back: Luke Waterfall (Lincoln City)

Set up Raggett’s winner but, just as importantly, the captain was a rock at the back as they kept a clean sheet against Burnley.


Left-back: Pedro (Chelsea)

Had some defensive difficulties as a left wing-back, but showed his attacking excellence by surging forward to score the opener against Wolverhampton Wanderers.


Right midfield: Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur)

The Dane returned to form with typical class, setting up two of Harry Kane’s goals in Spurs’ emphatic win over Fulham.


Centre midfield: Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea)

Provided a midfield masterclass with some wonderful passing as the Spaniard dictated play in the 2-0 win over Wolves.


Centre midfield: Philip Billing (Huddersfield Town)

A huge figure in the centre of the pitch, the young Dane showed his considerable promise as Huddersfield held Manchester City.


Left midfield: Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Manchester United)

Provided the pass of the weekend with his wonderful, arcing ball to set up Marcus Rashford’s equaliser at Blackburn Rovers.


Striker: Harry Kane (Tottenham)

A specialist in London derbies, Kane’s hat-trick at Craven Cottage took his tally to 23 goals in capital clashes and got Spurs back to winning ways.


Striker: Rudy Gestede (Middlesbrough)

A brilliant acrobatic volley against Oxford United showed the January signing is not just a target man who is good with his head.
