Christian Benteke #AVFC - That man has started right where he left of last season. 3 goals in 3 games including goals against Arsenal & Chelsea. Great for Villa to have kept hold of the Belgian striker.

Dean Moxey #CPFC - Was very impressed with the Palace LB, especially in the Tottenham game keeping Aaron Lennon extremely quiet. Was unlucky to concede the penalty for handball but made a good start to his Premier League campaign at Selhurst Park.

Pablo Zabaleta #MCFC - A solid established part of the City defense. Made the right back position his own and sealed with a new contract. Provided a few assists so far despite a bad game against Cardiff, the Argentinian makes my XI.

Mile Jedinak #CPFC - Jedinak been a revelation to the opening few weeks of the premier league. Caught my eye against Spurs with a personal MOM display and then again against Sunderland. Vital to Palace this year as club captain.

Simon Mignolet #LFC - Not even biased, 3 clean sheets from 3 games and an Anfield debut to remember with last minute penalty save. The Belgian is an easy choice.

Gary Cahill #CFC - Cahill been solid this season so far for club and country. Seems to have forced his way into Mourinhos' first 11 at the moment. The Englishmen just gets the nod over Ivanovic.

Daniel Agger #LFC - Trying not be biased but how can the Dane not make it with 3 clean sheets?! Thriving in the new vice-captain role at LFC and 3 solid performances, including sniffing out RVP make him my pick.

Yaya Toure #MCFC - This man is a genius. A midfield general and has been a revelation at City since arriving. 2 free kick goals and couple of assists make him an obvious choice for my eleven..and he's in my fantasy team.

Pablo Hernandez #SCFC - The Spanish winger has made a great start to the campaign, with two assists and a goal in three games. Thought he was a great signing last season from Valencia and he is proving to be so for the Swans.

Danny Welbeck #MUFC - Seems to have become a regular for both club and country. Has already doubled his tally for last season with 2 well taken goals against Swansea. Bright start by Welbeck.
