Chelsea legend John Terry appeared on Sky Sports MNF earlier this week and the former England international revealed his all time Premier League XI.
There was only one rule however, that he could not pick any of his former Chelsea team-mates. Judging by the 37-year-old’s selections he definitely rated the players from one of his club’s main rivals more than any others …
Goalkeeper : David De Gea
No arguments here JT, the Spaniard with the cat-like reflexes has grown into the worlds best keeper since moving to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
Right-back : Gary Neville
Undoubtedly the Premier League most consistent right-back ever, Neville played a whopping 602 games for the Red Devils and won an amazing eight league titles.
Centre-back : Rio Ferdinand
A rolls royce defender who formed a formidable partnership with Terry at international level.
Centre-back : Jamie Carragher
We can only imagine this was a sympathy vote as the ex-Liverpool man was standing beside JT in the Sky studio.
Left-back : Patrice Evra
More widely known for his hilarious Instagram posts and kicking fans in the head these days, but Evra was at one time one of the worlds top left-backs and is a Man United legend.
Right-midfield : Ronaldo
Not a bad player this lad, has picked up a sensational five Balon d’Or’s and has broken so many individual records we honestly don’t even know where to start.
Centre-midfield : Paul Scholes
A genius of a footballer, part of the fabled class of 92 and widely considered to be one of the most technically gifted players England has ever produced.
Centre-midfield : Steven Gerrard
Liverpool’s captain fantastic was like a real life Roy of the Rovers, who almost single handedly dragged his club to numerous cup successes.
Left-wing : Ryan Giggs
Some younger readers will remember Giggs as a midfield playmaker, but in his younger days he was one of the most devastating wingers ever seen on these shores, won the Premier League a quite ridiculous 13 times.
Centre-forward : Thierry Henry
Scored a whopping 175 goals Premier League goals and as Terry said himself, probably the best all-round forward the league has ever seen.
Centre-forward : Wayne Rooney
England and Manchester United’s record goal scorer, who is currently proving me well and truly wrong as he bangs in the goals for boyhood club Everton.
