Premier League Team of the Week: Walcott & Cazorla star as Arsenal romp to derby victory

Arsenal duo Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla both star in our TOTW after they helped the Gunners to an emphatic 5-2 comeback win over north London rivals Tottenham on Saturday.

Spaniard Cazorla makes his fourth appearance in our side after teeing up Olivier Giroud before finding the back of the net himself, while contract rebel Walcott features for the second week in a row.

Manchester City double goalscorer Carlos Tevez makes the cut, while team-mate Maicon is included in the XI for this first time this season following his side’s 5-0 win over Aston Villa. Sergio Aguero, who also scored twice, is unfortunate to miss out.

Luis Suarez continued his brilliant start to the season with two goals in Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Wigan at Anfield, while Adam Johnson will hope to have kickstarted his Sunderland career after an impressive display in the 3-1 away win at Fulham.

No fewer than three Norwich players feature after the Canaries stunned Manchester United at Carrow Road on Saturday evening. Javier Garrido teed up Anthony Pilkington to earn a 1-0 victory, and centre-back Michael Turner joins the duo in our TOTW.

Chelsea also fell to defeat this weekend, with West Brom defender Jonas Olsson and goalkeeper Boaz Myhill completing our XI. Shane Long just fails to make the cut, despite scoring in the 2-1 win at the Hawthorns.

Reading striker Adam Le Fondre is unlucky not to feature after he scored twice to down Everton, while Pablo Hernandez also impressed at the weekend, with Swansea defeating Newcastle 2-1.
