Man City's David James takes this week's award after his superb display denied Chelsea victory.
LION OF THE WEEKEND: Manchester City goalkeeper David James achieved the hardest feat in football on Sunday, stopping Chelsea.
And it was the second time this season the England goalkeeper had shut out Jose Mourinho’s Premiership leaders.
His brilliance at Stamford Bridge on Sunday earned City a 0-0 draw and the Lion of the Weekend award from judge Paul Parker, a key defender in the England 1990 World Cup side that reached the semi-finals.
"David James is an instinctive goalkeeper," Parker said. "His reflexes and athleticism are first-class.
"He is one of the only keepers who could have stopped Frank Lampard’s free-kick and the save in the last minute from Lampard was absolutely brilliant.
"There’s no doubt he earned City the draw, Chelsea would have won without him."
James has been in great form recently and is in Sven’s squad to face Holland on Wednesday.
He only saw Lampard’s free-kick late as it flew through a crowd of players but it was his injury-time stop to deny the Chelsea midfielder which stunned everyone in the ground.
Lampard caught his volley true from six yards and couldn’t believe it when James had time to stick out a strong right hand and turn the ball away.
