Manchester United moved 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League after a comfortable 4-0 win against Norwich City. 

Gareth Bale was at it again for Tottenham as they defeated north London rivals by 2-1 and Queens Park Rangers stayed in contention for Premier League survival after a vital win away at Southampton. 

Here's your GMF Premier League Team of the week: 

Pepe Reina - Liverpool

The Spaniard was in exceptional form as he kept a clean sheet for the Reds in their 4-0 drumming of Wigan at the DW Stadium on Saturday evening.

Reina was forced into some acrobatic saves to keep the Latics from scoring and the shot-stopper will be pleased with his clean sheet in his sides comfortable win. 

Kyle Walker - Spurs

Walker was impressive defensively as well as going forward in the north London derby. There were times in the game that Arsenal seemed to have men over in attack but with his pace and tenacity the England international helped Spurs open up a seven point gap on their rivals.

He nullified the attacking capabilities of Arsenal Left Back Nacho Monreal and gave the Spaniard lots to think about linking up well with Aaron Lennon down the right.

Jan Vertonghen - Spurs

The Belgian international was awarded man of the match for his fine defensive display against the Gunners. With Spurs playing a very high line the difficult job of defending against a quick Arsenal attack was left to Walker and Vertonghen. The former Ajax man made some brilliant last ditch tackles, and his headed clearances gave Tottenham some much need rest bite.

David Luiz - Chelsea

The Brazilian is often criticised for his lack of defensive ability, however he was in great form as Chelsea beat West Brom 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. Luiz was a leader in the absence of John Terry and he even managed to grab an assist for Demba Ba.

Leighton Baines - Everton

The in-form left back showed once again that he can replace Ashley Cole for England. His work rate down the left was enough to earn himself a place in the team as he proves to be a constant threat to his opponents.

Shinji Kagawa - Manchester United

He may have struggled since signing for United from Borussia Dortmund in the Summer, but he showed that he is a top player as United defeated Norwich City 4-0. The Japanese international hit a superb hat-trick that put him right at the fore front of Sir Alex Ferguson's mind when choosing a side to face Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Marouane Fellaini - Everton

Another fine performance from the Everton man proved he really is at the top of his game. Fellaini opened the scoring for the Toffees against Reading and also assisted Steven Pienaar in scoring. He may prove difficult for Everton to hold onto this Summer.

Steven Pienaar - Everton

Pienaar was in sensational form on Saturday, proving an inspired decision by David Moyes to resign him from Spurs in the summer. Pienaar scored and provided an assist for Kevin Mirallas.

Gareth Bale - Spurs

The Welshman popped up almost in every position on the pitch in the north London derby. He also managed to score the crucial opener, becoming the first Welsh player to reach 16 goals in the Premier League. Another top display from Bale, who is really spear heading Tottenham's Champions League charge.

Luis Suarez - Liverpool

The Uruguayan was in devastating form as Liverpool destroyed Wigan on Saturday evening. A hat-trick for the striker meant he leapt above Robin van Persie as leading scorer this season.

Wayne Rooney - Manchester United

Rooney was instrumental in United's 4-0 win over Norwich, scoring one himself and assisting in two of Kagawa's three goals at Old Trafford. United will be hoping that the England international will be in the same form on Tuesday when Real Madrid come to town.
