Just to pass a bit of time. It doesn't have to be based on previous Premiership experience and performances, simply what you think the strongest 11 would be as it currently stands.

De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the league by a distance.

Koscielny is somewhat under-rated and I've always been a big fan. I was loathed somewhat to include Kompany who has been anywhere near to his best for the last couple of seasons due to various injuries, but at his best he's still a superb center-back. Luke Shaw I rate highly providing that he can now get a long run of games, while there's next to nothing between Bellerin, Walker and Coleman. I just think that Bellerin has the slightly higher ceiling of them all.

Some people, particularly Arsenal fans, won't be happy that I couldn't find a place for Özil. It was between him and Mahrez and I just prefer Mahrez, simple as that. Being a Liverpool fan I would have loved to have seen Liverpool sign Mkhitaryan as he's a quality player, and one that will score and create a lot of goals for United unfortunately.

My 7 subs would be Cech, Terry, Coleman, Gündoğan, Özil, De Bruyne and Ibrahimovic. One thing I noticed is there really is a massive lack of quality center-backs in the Premier League at the moment!

Kinda hard and might be biased, but heres my top 11.

Goalkeeper-
Petr Cech, has experience, and can dictate the defense. If it weren't for him, Arsenal's defense would not even exist.

Defense-
Cesar Azpilicueta, because in my opinion, defending is more important than attacking and Azpilicueta is one of the best one on one defenders in the league if not the world.

John Terry, he is the last of his kind. Like it or not, he is up there with the best defenders in history with the likes of Ferdinand, Puyol, Nesta, etc... He is a leader and will make everyone around him look better.

Kurt Zouma, yes, I am a biased Chelsea fan, but I really can't think of anyone better than Zouma, he would even kick Terry out of the Chelsea team because he is so good! He is stupidly fast, he has powerful headers, he jumps as high as Ronaldo, he has the most spot on slide tackles I've ever seen, he has the body of a pure beast, and he is only 21 years old.

Toby Alderweireld, kills me to say this but Spurs are lucky to have this guy, he killed it last season and he can play anywhere in defense and kill it. Again, he is a defender so defending is what I expect a full back to do. Yes, he isn't a full back for Spurs but he played there often for Belgium. He is always playing it safe and that is very useful.

Holding Midfielders-
N'golo Kante, not really a shock, he does his job, and he does it better than anyone else. He doesn't stop running and he won't stop chasing you until he gets the ball back, not to mention he always knows who to pass to and never panics, almost as if he turns into Pirlo when he makes a pass, just not as magical.

Mark Noble, he is not only a leader but also a player who can dictate the midfield. He can take control of a game with his leadership, sorta like Gerrard. He is a player who you always need. Not to mention his passing ability.

Attacking Midfielders-
Riyad Mahrez, a player who can win the game for you on his own with his skills, pace, and shots. He is a player who would fit in every team and is a must have in anyones dream team.

Eden Hazard, might have less goals than the Walsh Pirlo, but even without goals, he is still one of the best in the world. He had a bad season, everyone does, but you can't take away that on his day, he competes with Messi and Ronaldo. He can turn a game within a few seconds, he is without a doubt, the best player in the league.

Alexis Sanchez, a really hard worker and he can do everything. He is pacey, strong, has passes that even make Ozil jealous, and has a shot that can rip the net.

Striker-
I don't really want to say Aguero because he is always injured, but you can't find a striker better than him. Even on his off days he will give defenders nightmares. He is just a all round beast and will score goals for fun.

Also, I tried so hard not to be biased but I honestly picked who I think deserves it. If I wasn't going for defensive full backs, I'd take Bellerin and Rose but defense is more important in my eyes.

Difficult to find place for all the attacking midfielders that deserve a mention in such teams.
Mkhitaryan, de Bruyne, Silva, Eriksen, Alli ... so many that just as well could be in there.
Waiting to see how Zlatan perform in the Premier League at his age before putting him ahead of the league's top scorer.


!edit! - Pogba take Ramsey's place

Ramsey has scored and assisted more in each of the last 3 seasons in a tougher league, and performed at an international level.

Even Milner has done better than Pogba, you're buying into the Pogba brand, as a footballer he's great, for 25 minutes in every 90.
