The goal scorers are having their short week in the sun in this edition of the Premier League Team of the Week.

Whether it was bagging multiple goals, like Charlie Austin and David Silva, winning a derby with a late stunner (Adam Johnson), or submitting candidates for goal of the year (Christian Benteke and Erik Lamela), players made their marks on the match’s score sheet and our memories.

That doesn’t mean defense gets you nowhere. Costel Pantilimon made several big stops as Newcastle piled pressure on Sunderland late before Johnson secured the winner.
