Team of Christmas

Due to the heavy fixture schedule at the end of December there's no team of the week; instead I've compiled a pick of the best players from the last three or four games (boxing day onwards). Not an easy task I can tell you, performance of Christmas — Southampton beating Chelsea 4-2, West Ham thrashing Derby, Charlton coming from two goals down to beat Ipswich — one result stood out for me though. Who was it said Ipswich were going down?

At least picking the best goal was easy, I'm guessing we may see Trevor Sinclair's wonderful effort a few times this season. Player of Christmas is a tricky one though, Roy Keane has been instrumental in stabilising the shaky ship United and Robert Pires has been spellbinding for Arsenal. The man that looks to be worth every penny of his seven figure transfer fee is the outstanding candidate for me though. No more messing around, here are all things footie's picks of the festive season…

Performace of Christmas : Ipswich vs Sunderland
Player of Christmas : Robbie Fowler (Leeds)
Goal of Christmas: Trevor Sinclair (West Ham vs Derby)
Team of Christmas :
Carlo Cudicini
John Arne Riise
William Gallas
Jorge Costa
Ashley Cole
