Jamie Carragher Picks His Premier League Team Of The Year

Chelsea

Chelsea lost 1-0 to title rivals Manchester City in their last Premier League game before the global break.

This term, Tottenham have conceded only five goals in seven games, with just two Premier League rivals - Manchester City and Manchester United - boasting better defensive records so far.

But that's what Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher attempted to do for the Telegraph.

Chelsea, who have obviously won the Premier League in the time frame that Carragher was picking his team from, have the most players with four as full backs Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta are joined by midfielders N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard.

Liverpool Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane are the two picks from Carra's former team but there's only two picks from Manchester with David de Gea the only United player and Kevin de Bruyne being the only City player.

And here is what the Liverpool legend came up with - and he gave his explanation on each selection.

Unfortunately I am going to have to start with a Manchester United player, who I actually think is the best goalkeeper in the world at the moment.

Who would make your Premier League team of the last 12 months? . "A great defensive record under Mauricio Pochettino". "Alongside him, Belgium team-mate Vertonghen was not far behind".

"The standout player at the start of this season".

Azpilicueta proved to be a versatile defender with the ability to play at left-back and right-back but current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has tended to use the 28-year-old in a centre-half role. "I think he is going to be a future Player of the Year contender".

Both were seen as the pillar behind Spurs title onslaught last season as Mauricio Pochettino's side became a hard proposition for opposition teams to score against.

"He has been the outstanding player in the league over the past three or four years". "He adds goals, pace, assists".
