Chelsea are by far and away the top team in the Premier League this season, and the standings reflect that.
However, individual players have also been affected. Here is my team of the season so far (as of 27/11/2014):
GK: Thibault Courtois
The Belgian giant has been a hero between the sticks this season, and any player who can replace Petr Cech can’t be too bad!
Other Goalkeepers: David De Gea, Asmir Begovic
RB: Nathaniel Clyne
The English defender has been incredible for The Saints this season, earning a place in the England team and even scoring a goal or two!
LB: Cesar Azpilicueta
This lad has been on the ball so much, even the commentators have had to learn how to pronounce his name! Azpicul… Aquapelli… Azlipicul… Azplicuetill… Astilicuepeta???
Other Full Backs: Pablo Zabaleta, Ryan Bertrand
CB: Fabricio Coloccini
Not the most obvious choice, but he has been a rock (a hairy rock) for a long time at Tyneside, but has never really got the credit he deserves…
CB: Winston Reid
Again, not too obvious a choice, but he has been instrumental in West Ham’s surprise start to the season, and deserves his place!
Other Centre Backs: Gary Cahill, Ryan Shawcross
CM: Nemanja Matic
The strong Serb is a monster on the pitch and his tough but skilful style of play means he is the perfect player to base a team around.
CM: Cesc Fabregas
The Spaniard has proved to be one of the best signings of the summer transfer window, and has shown he still has the quality he oozed at Arsenal.
CAM: Alexis Sanchez
The Chilean is the third highest scorer with a tally of 8 goals, and has made countless assists this season. He is the playmaker of this team.
Other Midfield Players: Eden Hazard, Morgan Schneiderlin
ST: Saido Berahino
The youngster winning a place in the England first team squad says it all about his marvellous season! A one to watch for the future.
ST: Diego Costa
Diego Costa is, quite literally, flying in the league this season. The only thing that could bring him crashing down is injuries, I guess.
ST: Sergio Aguero
This boy is the definition of quality. Give him the ball and something will happen, guaranteed. He is the greatest finisher on the planet!
Other Forward Players: Raheem Sterling, Diafra Sakho
MANAGER: Ronald Koeman
This managerial genius has led his Southampton team to incredible heights, unthinkable after their disastrous summer when all their players joined Liverpool!!!!!
