Lingard makes the cut for our Team of the Week

The Premier League is set for it's final international break of 2015, but it went out with a bang on last weekend - here is our team of the week.

Rob Elliott (Newcastle) - A long way from being fully fit, Elliott produced a battling display to keep a clean sheet in Newcastle's win at Bournemouth.

Ryan Shawcross (Stoke) - Chelsea striker Diego Costa barely got a sniff of a chance in his side's defeat at Stoke and Shawcross could take the credit for snuffing him out.

Virgil van Dijk (Southampton) - This powerhouse centre-back has proved to be a big hit since his move from Celtic in the summer transfer window. He was impressive again in the win against Sunderland.

Scott Dann (Crystal Palace) - Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew has been promoting the qualities of this classy full-back for some time and he was immaculate in the win against Liverpool at Anfield.

Danny Rose (Tottenham) - An accomplished display from the Spurs full-back, who proved a perfect assist for Harry Kane's goal against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.

Jesse Lingard (Manchester United) - A fine goal and another good display from this talented young United star. The Old Trafford club have spent a lot of money, but this kid is stealing the limelight right now.

Yannick Bolasie (Crystal Palace) - Pace, power and a finishing touch to complete his mix. Bolasie was hugely impressive as Palace notched a sparkling win at Anfield.

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) - Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has suggested he is lacking pace on the flanks, but his club let this dynamic performer leave in the summer of 2014. He impressed in Palace's win at Anfield.

Mousa Dembele (Tottenham) - This Belgian international has forced his way back into the Spurs side and he bossed the midfield against Arsenal. He is precisely the kind of player the Gunners need.

Romelu Lukaku (Everton) - Oozing with menace as he scored again against West Ham, this Belgian striker is the best target man in the Premier League this season.

Harry Kane (Tottenham) - It was not just his goal that caught the eye against Arsenal, as Kane led the line superbly and is passing to team-mates was immaculate.
