It has been another scintillating week in the Barclays Premier League and it is time to get your vote on for our weekly Player and Goal of the Week awards. There is an international break this weekend so you have even more time to vote than usual. Last week, Edin Dzeko of Manchester City took home POTW honors while Phil Jagielka of Everton, and his absolute screamer of a goal to earn a point versus Liverpool, earned GOTW accolades. There is a fresh batch of nominees for both titles this week so let's get to the candidates!

PLAYER OF THE WEEK NOMINEES
Steven Fletcher, F, Sunderland- After a slow start to the 2014-15 campaign for the Scot, he came on in a big way against Stoke City. He scored twice and assisted the other goal in the Black Cats' 3-1 win, their first of the year.
Papis Demba Cisse, F, Newcastle United- Alan Pardew's hot seat got a little cooler as Cisse's brace was able to snatch a point from the jaws of defeat against Swansea. He is tied for fifth in the league at 4 goals.
David De Gea, GK, Manchester United- He has been much maligned through his tenure at Old Trafford but De Gea was phenomenal in the Red Devils' 2-1 win versus Everton. He became the first man to ever save a Leighton Baines penalty in the BPL and made several other saves in crunch time that few other in the world could.
GOAL OF THE WEEK NOMINEES
- Ross Wallace, Burnley vs. Leicester City (90' +6, 2-2)
- Angel DiMaria, Manchester United vs. Everton (27', 1-0)
- Yaya Toure, Manchester City vs. Aston Villa (82', 1-0)
- Adam Lallana, Liverpool vs. West Bromwich Albion (45', 1-0)
