Shane Croghan gives us his top picks for this week's Premier League Team of the Week, with only one player from the newly crowned champions making an appearance.
Chelsea have finally been crowned champions after a win against Crystal Palace and Leicester continue their impressive recent form by blowing away a Newcastle side in total meltdown.
Elsewhere, Manchester United are doing their best to throw away top four with a third successive defeat, but none of the sides below them seem capable of snatching that last Champion's League spot from Van Gaal's men.
I've gone for a packed midfield this week, capable of protecting the three lads at the back and providing decent service for the two poachers up top.
Boaz Myhill – West Bromwich Albion
Tony Pulis turned to Myhill after an injury to the Baggies' first choice keeper Ben Foster ruled him out for the remainder of the season. The former Welsh international has slotted in between the sticks and proved a more than adequate back-up to the injured Foster. Myhill saved a penalty from the usually clinical Robin Van Persie and made a number of key saves to earn his third successive clean sheet as West Brom came away from Old Trafford with an unlikely three points
Wes Morgan – Leicester City
The Leicester captain makes his second consecutive team of the week appearance after the Foxes demolished John Carver's woeful Newcastle United side. Morgan remained solid and organised at the back to ensure another clean sheet for his team as they continue their stunning turnaround. He capped off another great performance with a rare goal, after getting a touch on Marc Albrighton's free-kick to take it past Tim Krul.
Jonas Olsson – West Bromwich Albion
It's been a poor season for Olsson who has been injured or out-of-favour for large periods of the campaign, but he returned to the starting line-up away at Manchester United to help his side to a hard-earned three points. The Swedish defender remained resolute at the back as United dominated possession in Albion's half of the pitch. At the other end of the pitch, Olsson got the vital nick on Chris Brunt's free-kick to take it past David De Gea and nab the victory for West Brom.
John Terry – Chelsea
The Chelsea skipper has played every single minute of every game during his side's title-winning campaign and been consistently brilliant from the first day of the season. Mourinho has anchored his side around the thirty-four year old defender and the former England captain led his side to another clean sheet and the three points they needed to seal the title with a professional performance against Crystal Palace.
Jonjo Shelvey – Swansea City
Jonjo Shelvey is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. He might get sent off ten minutes in, or he might score a screamer from thirty yards out. He might even do both. Thankfully for Garry Monk and Swansea City, the volatile midfielder turned in one of his more mature performances against Stoke City, assisting both of his side's goals to strengthen the Swans' grip on eighth place.
Fabian Delph – Aston Villa
Tim Sherwood wouldn't look out of place in an episode of EastEnders, rubbing shoulders with Phil Mitchell and Danny Dyer, but he has also proven to be a phenomenal man-manager, wrangling great performances out of players who looked void of ideas under Paul Lambert. Fabian Delph is one such player. The young Villa captain lit up Wembley against Liverpool a few weeks ago and he broke more Merseyside hearts on Saturday, driving Aston Villa to an impressive win against Everton.
Philippe Coutinho – Liverpool
Coutinho's inclusion as a nominee for the PFA Player of the Year proved a contentious issue in some quarters, with many football fans feeling that the young midfielder hadn't racked up the goals and assists to justify his inclusion. It isn't all about statistics though, Coutinho dictates the play for Liverpool and all their good attacking movement flows through him. This was evident against Queens Park Rangers as the little Brazilian opened the scoring with a tidy finish and whipped in the corner for Steven Gerrard to head home his side's late winner.
David Silva – Manchester City
Much like Coutinho for Liverpool, Silva is the man who dictates City's attacking movement and orchestrates the play for his side. The Citizens travelled to White Hart Lane without an away win since February and Silva created the goal which effectively ensures a top four finish for Pellegrini's side, despite their poor second half of the season. Silva cut open the Spurs' defence with the kind of through ball that he could trademark at this stage, leaving Sergio Agüero in acres of space to finish past Hugo Lloris.
Alexis Sánchez – Arsenal
By no fault of his own, Arsène Wenger has struggled in the transfer market over the years, lacking the spending power of some of his competitors and often being forced to sell his star players. Now that Arsenal have paid off the debt resulting from the building of The Emirates, Wenger has been allowed to splash the cash on some marquee signings and he has certainly spent wisely with the purchase of Alexis Sánchez from Barcelona. Sánchez is the kind of world-class player that can help push Arsenal to the next level and make them real title-contenders. Two goals in another electric display against Hull City have proven the Chilean international's worth once more, as if it was ever in doubt.
Leonardo Ulloa – Leicester City
If Leicester City are to begin next season in the Premier League, the goals of Leonardo Ulloa will have played a significant role in keeping them up. Despite patchy form throughout the campaign, the Argentine striker brought his total for the season to ten after his brace against Newcastle. A header after just thirty-six seconds set the Foxes' on their way towards a resounding victory, before Ulloa rounded off a dominant display by hammering home a penalty to make it five wins in the last six for Nigel Pearson's side.
Christian Benteke – Aston Villa
Under the guidance of Tim Sherwood, the big Belgian striker has been positively menacing, scoring goals for fun and reminding everyone just how dangerous he can be when he finds form. Villa fans will be hoping the club can hold onto one of their most prized assets during the upcoming transfer window, but for now they can just enjoy Benteke's performances in the claret and blue. A brace against Everton brings his total for the season to twelve goals, and Sherwood will be keen for him to add to this tally as he aims to ensure safety for Villa.
