FORMATION 4-3-3

Ter Stegen is arguably Barca's best player at the moment and he made the difference at both ends against Getafe, making a crucial save before his long clearance set up Luis Suarez for the win.

Eibar's excellent win over struggling Celta owed much to the defensive solidity of De Blasis, who also provided a key assist in their 2-0 triumph.

Alongside De Blasis, Oliveira kept the prominent Celta attack at bay, winning 4/4 tackles, 4/6 aerials and make four clearances as his team kept a clean sheet.

Ely produced a dominant defensive performance to keep up Mallorca, with his distribution from defence proving an important part in the win.

Firpo stepped up with Barca struggling to seal the win over Getafe with the vital second goal, as well as always offering his team an option from wide areas.

Parejo is currently one of the most in-form players in the league and in a tough away fixture he absolutely dominated proceedings, touching the ball more than any other player this weekend.

Partey is proving to be a real fan's favourite now at Atleti and turned in a superb, composed, battling midfield display in the 0-0 stalemate.

Cazorla may be 35 but he is still producing on a regular basis for Villarreal, proving the type of creative influence that they simply cannot leave out at the moment.

Top scorer in the league at the moment, Moreno spearheads an exciting Villarreal side that has a whole range of options available to them. His goal and assist contributed to the hammering of Betis.

Ekambi staked his claim to start more regularly for the Yellow Submarines, scoring a brilliant header and a composed finish as Betis simply couldn't deal with him.

The former Newcastle forward has been in good form back in Spain, and his leading-the-line display against Mallorca was rewarded with a late, deserved, goal.
