Who were the standout players in the Premier League this weekend? Danny Mills picks his best XI.
The former England full-back and regular Sky Sports pundit has picked his best XI from Week 12 of the 2018/19 season.
After Manchester City cruised to victory in the derby, Liverpool and Chelsea remained unbeaten and Wolves gave Arsenal a real scare, there were plenty of options to choose from.
But who got the nod? Here are the 11 players Mills picked, and his reasons why...
Jordan Pickford was outstanding at Stamford Bridge. He made some really important saves as Everton held Chelsea to a goalless draw.
- Jordan Pickford - 66 points
Andrew Robertson seems to get better week in, week out. After what happened at Wolves last week, Juan Foyth's recovery was really good, topped off with the winning goal. Matt Doherty has really settled into life in the Premier League and we all know what John Stones offers.
- Matt Doherty - 56 points
- John Stones - 53 points
- Juan Foyth - 117 points
- Andrew Robertson - 94 points
Fernandinho is one of the most important players in the Manchester City team, his performance in the derby was further evidence of that. He sits in midfield, drives forward on occasions and, most importantly, allows the likes of David Silva and Bernardo Silva to go and play. Those two were absolutely majestic, brilliant to watch. Felipe Anderson was very good for West Ham, earning them a point at Huddersfield.
- Fernandinho - 75.5 points
- David Silva - 92.5 points
- Bernardo Silva - 72.5 points
- Felipe Anderson - 56.5 points
Salomon Rondon got a couple of goals that secured a vital win for Newcastle, so he has to go in. And it was yet another influential Manchester derby performance and goal from Sergio Aguero, and a new hairdo to match.
- Sergio Aguero - 55 points
- Salomon Rondon - 113 points
