Seb’s Team Of The Weekend

Updated: May 14, 2013

The weekend of the FA cup final, what seemed to be a huge boost for Wigan when they won it but then to see the next day that all the teams around them recuperated enough points to make Wigan’s two last games “must-wins” and also Chelsea certainly confirming their place in next year’s Champions League, also not to forget the sacking of Roberto Mancini.

Goalkeeper : Simon Mignolet (Sunderland AFC)

Another option for goalkeeper could have been Joel of Wigan after a

couple of spectacular saves, but the Belgian takes the spot not just the fact that he has been Sunderland’s main man especially when Sunderland have been incapable of scoring, against Southampton, he may have conceded but he kept Sunderland in the game with only 1 of the 10 shots on target going in.

Centre-Back : Sylvain Distin (Everton FC)

A comfortable performance against West Ham, not really letting them play, although that was mainly down to the midfield, Distin dealt with what came towards him easily. Throughout the season the partnership of Distin and Jagielka has been key to Everton’s defence, one is not dependant on the other, they’re both equally dependant on each other, which explains why Heintinga hardly plays now.

Centre-Back : Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United FC)

I couldn’t leave Ferdinand out after scoring that 87th minute goal to seal the victory for Sir Alex Ferguson for his last home game. Solid performance not letting Swansea have a great deal of clear chances although Michu did trouble United, like with a lot of teams, but came out on top in this match.

Centre-Back : Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur FC)

Against a physical Stoke side, Michael Dawson struggled a bit but Vertonghen did the dirty work, fought and matched Stoke’s physical game, which comes as a surprise when often we see Veronghen making a lot of forwards runs, showing agility, strength and speed.

Right-Midfield : Callum McManaman (Wigan AFC)

Man of the match against Manchester City and making Gael Clichy look like he was doing a Bosingwa impersonation. The young Scouser showed that he can dribble, run, cross which caused Man City tons of problems and led to the red card when three City players couldn’t get the ball of him then Zabaleta took him down.

Centre-Midfield : Steven Pienaar (Everton FC)

As mentioned before, the game against West Ham didn’t cause many problems for Everton, especially in the middle of the park with Everton passing and keeping the ball well and the perfect example was the first goal and Peinaar was the key to Everton keeping the ball , exchanging with Baines, Fellaini, Mirallas, Coleman…

Centre-Midfield : Frank Lampard (Chelsea FC)

A truly historic day for Chelsea and Frank Lampard, not only matching Chelsea’s all-time goalscorer but then to surpass it with two typical “Lampard goals” and showing how a midfielder can score so many goals in the Premier League.

Centre-Midfielder : James McCarthy (Wigan AFC)

The reason why Wigan kept the ball well was principally because of the way McCarthy won the ball and managed to bring the ball forward for Wigan and wasn’t afraid to dribble the Man City players in his half if necessary.

Left-Midfield : Kevin Mirallas (Everton FC)

Two well taken goals and a “get stuck in” performance that we always see with Mirallas and against West Ham it was no different, keeping the ball but mainly attacking the West Ham back four fearless and menacing the defenders all afternoon.

Attacking-Midfield : Clint Dempsey (Tottenham Hotspur FC)

A game-changer against Chelsea in midweek and also a key factor to Tottenham’s victory against Stoke, scoring a good goal and providing an assist for Adebayor, who hardly seems to play for 89 minutes but then when he does play, he scores. Dempsey gave Tottenham the team a different dynamic apart from Bale.

Striker : Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool FC)

Who needs Saurez? Obviously not Daniel Sturridge who seems to blossom when Saurez isn’t there, becoming the target-man and a great finisher, with his right foot, left foot or his head.
