|Luis Boa Morte|
|Robbie Keane||Milan Baros|
Hello. These are the players who caught our collective eye this Easter weekend.
Kelvin Davis had a "worldy" in goal as Sunderland belied everyone in football by holding out for a point at Old Trafford on Friday.
The Sunderland keeper has had his critics at times during the season, but was in superb form to keep out Ruud Van Nistelrooy and co.
To be truthful, it's too little, too late. A draw at Old Trafford is a wonderful result, but it doesn't mask the fact that Sunderland are the worst side to ever grace the Premiership. FACT.
Any lingering hopes Manchester United had of catching Chelsea at the top of the Premiership went up in smoke after that result, and the Blues confirmed the inevitable when they beat Bolton 2-0 at the Reebok Stadium on Sunday.
John Terry was the Champions' best defender by some difference, and was credited with the opening goal as he bundled home a Frank Lampard free-kick.
Arsenal's push for the fourth Champions League spot was maintained with a victory at home to relegation candidates West Brom. Swiss youngster Philipe Senderos stood out at the back for the Gunners as they held off a spirited challenge from the Baggies.
Meanwhile, Danny Gabbidon was at the heart of the West Ham side that condemned Manchester City to their sixth-successive defeat at Upton Park on Saturday.
Trevor Sinclair was City's best player; the former England winger had a goal disallowed for offside, and also forced Hammers keeper Jimmy Walker in to two very impressive saves.
Portsmouth took a giant step towards survival when they beat Middlesbrough at home; Gary O'Neill drilled home the winner, his sixth goal of the season and his third in the last four matches.
Meanwhile, Aaron Lennon impressed in front of the watching England coach as Tottenham won at Goodison Park to ensure they remained in the box seat for the final Champions League position.
And Luis Boa Morte netted twice as Fulham banished any faint relegation fears with a south-London derby victory over Charlton at Craven Cottage.
Milan Baros was the star of another derby match, sending Birmingham spinning closer to the Premiership trapdoor with a two-goal blast as Villa eased the pressure on under-fire boss David O'Leary with a 3-1 victory.
Veteran Alan Shearer continues to sign off in style; the Newcastle legend scored twice in the win against Wigan, his 12th and 13th goals of his final season.
And Robbie Keane wins the final spot after inspiring Spurs to a crucial win at Everton.
Keane won and converted the penalty that keeps fourth-placed Tottenham four points in front of north London rivals Arsenal.
The manager we chose to honour was Sunderland's caretaker boss Kevin Ball; a point at Old Trafford will have massively boosted his chances of landing the job permanently.
