Squarefootball's Team of the Season so far


Bookmark and Share

The Premier League resumes this weekend and the battle for the title looks like being the closest in years. Arsenal currently lead the way, but Chelsea, Man City, Man United, Liverpoool and Spurs are all desperate to get their hands on the coveted prize in May and even Southampton are in with a shout.

The 2013/14 Premier League season has produced a number of outstanding performances from the opening 11 games, but who have been the main standout performers?

Every week at Squarefootball we like to highlight the main men in our Team of the Week feature, but given the international break this is an ideal opportunity to take a look at who features in our Team of the Season so far.

Here we go...

Sqf team of the season so far

Goalkeeper - Artur Boruc (Southampton)

The former Celtic number one has been in inspired form for the Saints this season. The Polish international has kept six clean sheets from the opening 11 games and conceded just four goals. In fact Boruc is yet to concede more than one goal in any game for club or country so far. Tottenham's Hugo Lloris and Liverpool's Simon Mignolet were not too far behind.

Left back - Leighton Baines (Everton)

The Everton ace has been in sparkling form over the first 11 games. Baines is full of running and attacking endeavour and possesses one of the sweetest left boots in the country. His two free-kicks against West Ham United were right out of the top drawer and it looks as though he may head to Brazil as England's number one left back ahead of rival Ashley Cole. 

Central defence - Curtis Davies (Hull City)

The former West Brom and Aston Villa defender has featured in almost half of our Team of the Week features so far and is truly fulfilling his potential under Steve Bruce at the KC. Strong, combative and brave, Davies has been a real rock for the Tigers in their return to the top flight. An ever present, Davies has helped keep four clean sheets and even found himself on the scoresheet.

Central defence - Dejan Lovren (Southampton)

Southampton have been the surprise package in the Premier League this season and that has been due to their solid foundations at the back. The Croatian international has been a revelation at St Mary's following his summer move from Lyon. Lovren even scored the Saints' winner at Anfield in September. Lovren cost the club £8.5 million but he looks to be an absolute bargain.

Right back - Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City)

He may have been stripped of the vice-captaincy at the Etihad but Zabaleta has been one of Manuel Pellegrini's most consistent performers this season. The former Espanyol man rarely lets City down and is effective both defensively and offensively. For all the millions City have spent over the past five years, the £6.5 million they spent on Pablo has been worth every penny.

Midfielder - Adam Lallana (Southampton)

The Southampton midfielder has been in excellent form and is clearly loving life under Pochettino. The 25-year-old has deservedly earned an England call up and his goal against Hull City was simply sublime. We will never get bored of watching that over and over again.

Midfield - Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)

The Welsh international has been the player of the season so far. Rambo is unrecognisable from his previous seasons at Arsenal. He is in a rich vein of form in front of goal, is exuding confidence and everything he touches is turning to gold. Ramsey is one of the first names on Wenger's team sheet. 

Midfield - Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)

The scoring exploits of Gerrard's team-mates Suarez and Sturridge may be taking all the plaudits just now but Gerrard remains one of the best midfielders in world football. He may be on the other side of 30 and playing through the pain barrier, but Gerrard is still the major driving force at Anfield. With Brendan Rodgers' Anfield revolution firmly under way Gerrard may well end his career with a Premier League winner's medal under his belt.

Striker - Luis Suarez  (Liverpool)

The controversial striker has only played six league games for Liverpool but is already the Premier League's joint top marksman having scored eight times - including his fourth hat-trick for the club. The Uruguayan international may have dragged the club's good name through the dirt in the summer, but he is repaying the fans' faith in him with goals galore. 

Striker - Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

The man who won the Premier League title for City in 2011 has been exceptional so far this season, even if City's away form has been abysmal. Aguero has scored eight goals in 10 games and has four assists to his name. The Argentina marksman is a tricky customer to play against and has given defenders nightmares.

Striker - Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)

The SAS have been in stunning form and Sturridge kicked it all off in Suarez's absence with six goals in Liverpool's opening five games. Sturridge has continued to find the back of the net following Suarez's return but the Uruguayan has been the main man over recent weeks. However, Sturridge stepped up to the plate in Suarez's absence and his recent goal against West Brom was divine.
