The Premier League is really shaping up now and while the two Manchester clubs remain at the top , Chelsea are finally clicking into gear and showing their ambitions . Liverpool meanwhile came out on top in the Merseyside derby , Spurs beat their local rivals Arsenal while Fulham thrashed QPR. No one team features heavily in this week’s team of the week. So, here it is then, the Premier League team of the Week for week seven

GK: Tim Krul
The Newcastle ‘keeper is turning out to be a quality player for the Toon and his early season form means he is fast becoming a fans’ favourite. He helped Newcastle to yet another win on Saturday. His string of saves get them game at 0-0 before Newcastle made it 2-0 at Molineux. He conceded a late goal and despite a late Wolves rally, he held on for the win.

RB: Kyle Walker
The young defender has been backed by boss Harry Redknapp as Spurs’ right back and he has provided. With the departure of Alan Hutton, Walker has been given the task of the right back position and his display in his first North London derby showed his potential. Not just defending but his attacking qualities are a danger to any side. Power, pace and skill all mean he is a constant menace to the opposition. His super strike ended up to be the match winner.

CB: Phil Jones
No matter where Phil Jones plays, he seems to be unstoppable. He started the game at centre back before switching to right back. He denied Norwich on several occasions on Saturday including a last ditch tackle as Steve Morrison closed in on goal. His powerful runs from the back have become a feature of his play and when he moved to right back they continued and his superb ball was nearly converted by Welbeck.

CB: Gary Monk
Swansea have now kept four clean sheets at home this season and are yet to concede a goal at the Liberty Stadium. Monk is one of the main reasons for this and his fine form continues, he controls and dominates the relatively inexperienced Swansea side at this level.

LB: Jose Enrique
The Spaniard has been slightly hit and miss so far since joining Newcastle. He has produced some fantastic performances though and he preformed at Goodison Park on Saturday. He set up the all-important opening goal and kept a clean sheet in the process.

RM: Frank Lampard
Despite constant talk that he is coming to the end of his career, Lampard continues to perform. He really does love the Reebok Stadium and his hat trick on Sunday emphasised that. His outstanding display has quashed any talk that he won’t feature regularly for the Blues this season.

CM: Scott Parker
Parker has showed why Spurs went to such extreme lengths to sign him. He has adapted to life at the Lane extremely quickly and he is now a certain starter in the Tottenham midfield. He dominated the central areas against Arsenal and didn’t give them a sniff.

CM: Danny Murphy
The former Red continues to go strong and has become a Fulham legend. He leads them and influences their play. He coolly converted a first half penalty and has helped Fulham to the Europa League final in recent times and European success.

ST: Gabriel Agonblahor
The striker seems to be rejuvenated under McLeish. His superb display helped Villa continue their fine start to the season. He scored one and set up one with a typical pacy and powerful run before crossing for Bent.

ST: Andy Johnson
Martin Jol didn’t seem a big fan of AJ but now the former Hamburg boss has no option but to like him. After Thursday’s double in Denmark, Johnson was handed a new contract and a hat trick in Fulham’s hammering of QPR has got Fulham fans licking their lips.

ST: Daniel Sturridge
The young striker has really become a man this season and has become a Chelsea regular, keeping the likes of Malouda and Kalou out of the team. He scored twice in Chelsea’s 5-1 win at Bolton.
