Paul Merson’s Premier League team of the season so far

Paul Merson is one of the nations favourite pundits, and with the season coming to its midway point the former Arsenal attacker and Sky Sports stalwart has picked his Premier League team of the season so far. Let’s see who made the cut …

David De Gea

Has put in a string of world class performances for Man United and has kept a whopping 10 clean sheets in 18 games.

Kyle Walker

The 27-year-old has taken his game to the next level and has become an integral part of Man City’s all conquering side.

James Tarkowski

The former Oldham centre-back has risen from relative obscurity to become one of the Premier Leagues most accomplished defenders.

Ben Mee

Part of a Burnley defense that has only conceded 12 goals all season and is being linked with an England call-up.

Marcos Alonso

A brilliant all-round footballer, equally strong in defence and attack. Has contributed four goals and one assist from left-wing back.

Kevin De Bruyne

Probably the Premier League’s best player, and is more than likely the one player Pep Guardiola can not afford to lose. The 26-year-old has scored six goals and provided eight assists.

Fernandinho

Doesn’t get the plaudits that his more talented team-mates do, but gets through so much of the vital dirty work in his defensive midfield role for City.

Leroy Sane

The 21-year-old German international’s pace is one of his teams most potent attacking weapons. His end product has improved hugely this season with six goals and eight assists.

Raheem Sterling

Arguably the Premier League’s most improved player. Is Man City’s top scorer in the league with 11 goals.

David Silva

The man his team-mates call Merlin has been sensational all campaign. Is on course for his most productive City season ever with five goals and eight assists so far this term.

Harry Kane

A goal scoring machine, who surely deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the world’s best players. Has two more games left to break Alan Shearer’s record for the most amount of goals in a Premier League calendar year.
