Jamie Carragher's Premier League XI from the season so far

Jamie Carragher's Premier League XI from the season so far

Just seven games into the new Premier League season, it's pretty evident that Arsenal will once again be embroiled in a pretty fierce four-way battle for the final two Champions League qualification spots.

Jamie Carragher has admitted that Eden Hazard has been the Premier League's best player in recent seasons following his sparkling displays with Chelsea.

Despite this, only one City player makes Liverpool legend Carragher's XI, in a team which is dominated by Chelsea and Tottenham stars.

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

The likes of Romelu Lukaku (7), Sergio Aguero (6), Alvaro Morata (6) and Harry Kane (6) are already firing their club towards the summit of the league, while the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mohamed Salah are looking impressive in midfield.

Carragher, the Telegraph's new football columnist, was asked to name the players who he thinks have shone the most, and he started with David De Gea in goal, claiming that United's number one is now the best in the world.

Also in his selection is Spurs central defensive pairing of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.


Left-back: Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)'I think he has been outstanding in the 12 months he has been here.

Chelsea average four goals per season in the dying stages.

"Alongside him his mate wasn't far behind him, Vertonghen. I think he is going to be a future Player of the Year contender".

Up top, the Champions League victor has selected Sadio Mane and Eden Hazard on the wings, while Harry Kane takes up the centre-forward role.

"Last season without him Liverpool fell apart at times".
