Premier League Team of the Week: Allen & Suarez star after Liverpool fightback against Tottenham

The Uruguayan bagged his 22nd Premier League goal of the season on Sunday, and now makes his eighth appearance in our side this season following the win at Anfield

Luis Suarez and Jan Vertonghen both rack up their eighth appearances in our TOTW following their displays in Liverpool’s 3-2 win over Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.

The Uruguayan opened the scoring with a superbly-taken goal, his 22nd in the league this season, while the Spurs centre-back features for the second week in a row despite the defeat at Anfield after finding the back of the net twice for the north Londoners.

Suarez is joined in the XI by team-mate Joe Allen, whose 30-minute cameo helped swing the game back in his side’s favour with the Reds trailing 2-1 upon his introduction.

Newcastle duo Yohan Cabaye and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa line up in midfield and defence respectively following the Magpies’ 2-1 comeback win at home to Stoke City, with Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc also rewarded after his late penalty save against Norwich City.

A vital 2-1 victory over Reading not only boosted Aston Villa’s hopes of Premier League survival, but also sees Ron Vlaar and Andreas Weimann included in our side. Andros Townsend stars for fellow relegation candidates QPR after his superb volley helped the Hoops secure a 3-1 win against Sunderland.

Romelu Lukaku makes his fourth TOTW appearance this season despite missing a penalty in West Brom’s 2-1 defeat of Swansea. The Belgian pulled the Baggies level after initially trailing, and his impressive display is enough to keep Christian Benteke, Loic Remy and Luke Moore out of the side.
