Premier League Team of the Week: Manchester United striking pair Van Persie & Hernandez star

Manchester United duo Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez both star in this week’s XI after grabbing a double each in Tuesday’s 4-0 victory over Wigan.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez also features after he bagged his 14th and 15th Premier League goals of the season in the 3-0 win over Sunderland, and he is joined by team-mate Steven Gerrard, who played a key role in both the Uruguayan’s strikes.

QPR’s shock 1-0 away victory over Chelsea means there are places for both Shaun Wright-Phillips and Julio Cesar in our TOTW. The wideman grabbed the only goal of the game to snatch all three points, while the Brazilian goalkeeper was on hand to make a number of key saves.

Everton left-back Leighton Baines makes his sixth appearance in our side this year after his stunning 30-yard free kick helped the Toffees come from behind to defeat Newcastle 2-1. Tottenham’s Aaron Lennon also makes the cut following the 3-1 victory over Reading.

Gaston Ramirez is included after Southampton’s 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal, while West Ham defensive duo Winston Reid and Guy Demel round off our XI.

Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku are both unfortunate to miss out after scoring for Manchester City and West Brom respectively, while Manchester United full-backs Rafael and Patrice Evra also just fail to make the grade.
