Leicester were held at Manchester United to delay their crowning as Premier League champions and at the other of the table Andros Townsend kept Newcastle's dreams alive. Here's our Premier League team of the week.

1. Karl Darlow, Newcastle

Played 90 minutes (1-0 v Crystal Palace). The Magpies' third-choice keeper collected a precious clean sheet due in large part to his 70th-minute penalty save from Yohan Cabaye to pave the way for a vital victory.

2. Hector Bellerin, Arsenal

Played 90 minutes (1-0 v Norwich). Played his part in keeping the relegation-threatened Canaries out from right-back, which meant substitute Danny Welbeck's lone strike was enough to claim the three points.

3. Wes Morgan, Leicester
