After careful consideration, World Soccer Talk has selected a squad of 18 players as the best footballers so far during this 2013/14 Premier League season.
We tried to balance the side though obviously we’ve gone heavy in central midfield (with two additional central midfielders on the bench) while including some players from sides such as Southampton and Hull that have played out of their skins thus far this season.
In this day and age, we do not believe playing with two strikers is wise so we’ve set up a variation of a 4-5-1 more like a 4-3-2-1. This having been said, we will say we have not picked the eleven best players but the best at each position within this formation.
Reserves: Tim Howard, Phil Jagielka, Mathieu Debuchy, Yaya Toure, Gareth Barry, Daniel Sturridge, Kun Aguero
Manager: Steve Bruce
Assistant Manager: Brendan Rodgers
