Villa stars in Team of Week

Aston Villa’s 6-0 thrashing of relegated Derby at Pride Park saw four players named in the Team of the Week in The Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League.

Ashley Young and Gabriel Agbonlahor posted 39 points each, the highest from a striker in the latest Index, Stiliyan Petrov posted his best score of the season and captain Gareth Barry notched his highest away total.

Young moved up two places to fifth in the Index with 537 points while Barry sits 10th on 509 points having jumped three spots.

Agbonlahor climbed nine places to 14th with 477 points and Petrov rose 32 places to 229th with 155 points.

Analysis of all Premier League games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:

David James, Portsmouth, Goalkeeper, 14

Radhi Jaidi, Birmingham City, Defender, 31

Sol Campbell, Portsmouth, Defender, 29

Owen Hargreaves, Manchester United, Midfielder, 34

Stiliyan Petrov, Aston Villa, Midfielder, 32

Ashley Young, Aston Villa, Striker, 39

As a fan of Petrov, I'm really pleased that he's showing the form he's capable of. Agreed about these four. Good players!

Chelsea fans confuse me....but thank you, I guess. You want him, all he'll cost you is one Essien, or a Joe Cole?

LOL. I've been a fan of Petrov since his Celtic days and that's why I'm pleased that he's finally settled here. But no. I won't swap Essien or Joey for him, but what about Sidwell?? ;)
