With the Premier League campaign just a month away from ending, it's time to take a look at the best performing players of the season.

This season, just like every other, has produced some sensational talents and has seen some previous talents continue their impressive form.

Much like every XI, there is going to be a lot of debate and a lot of opinions flowing around as every football fan is different and everyone believes certain players have performed better than others.

Despite the likelihood of people disagreeing with the choices, this is my Team of the Season:

Goalkeeper: Asmir Begovic | Stoke City

Linked with a summer move away from Stoke City hasn't effected Begovic as he has produced some of the finest goalkeeping seen in this year's Premier League campaign.

Despite Stoke's torrid form at the moment, seeing them lose seven out of the last 10, their keepers has been in sensational form all season and deserves a move to a top club in the summer.

Right-back: Pablo Zabaleta | Manchester City

Always a reliable defender when chosen for Manchester City, Zabaleta has captained the club on several occasions during Vincent Kompany's injuries.

An experienced and a skilled defender, he has been one of the key players for City in the last two seasons.

Centre-back: Jan Vertonghen | Tottenham

The Belgium international has proven to be a sensational signing for Tottenham and has been a solid rock at the back and also deadly going forward as well.

Signed in the summer from Ajax, Vertonghen has adapted to the Premier League very quickly and has been a great signing for Tottenham as they look to finish in the top four.

Centre-back: Ashley Williams | Swansea City

Another solid season at Swansea City has seen Williams become a main transfer target for the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal.

Helping them stay in the Premier League and also win the Capital One Cup hasn't gone unnoticed by pundits and by other club managers. A solid, reliable defender.

Left-back: Leighton Baines | Everton

If he had been around in any other time, Baines would easily be England's number one left back, but unfortunately for him, he has been around in the same era as Ashley Cole.

Season upon season it seems that not only does Baines get better, he also gets more crucial for the Toffees. Their free-kick, corner and penalty taker has seen him enjoy yet another influential season.

Right-wing: Juan Mata | Chelsea

Despite the signing of Eden Hazard in the summer, it is Mata that has been the most deadliest midfielder at Chelsea this season.

A great dribbler and passer of the ball has helped Chelsea throughout the season and, despite turmoil off the pitch, Mata has produced some fantastic football on the pitch. His goals and assists have also got Chelsea to Wembley for the FA Cup semi-final.

Centre-midfield: Santi Cazorla | Arsenal

Signed in the summer from Malaga and has never looked back. Most footballers need a season or two to adapt to the pace of English football, but not this guy.

Impressive from his first game to now, with only a few below-par performances, has seen Cazorla become a great at the club. Double figures for goals and also assists have given him a debut season to remember.

Centre-midfield: Michu | Swansea City

Despite not actually being a centre midfielder, Michu has played in the attacking midfield role on occasions when Danny Graham was still at the club and because of his sensational debut season in England, he deserves to be in the side.

Scoring 16 goals and in general being a real handful for defenders has seen Michu earn the tag of 'signing of the season'. Was also key in Swansea's Capital One Cup victory.

Left-wing: Gareth Bale | Tottenham

It has been the season that has seen Bale come of age. After a sensational campaign, many football fans put Bale in the same bracket as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Debatable that he is that good yet, but there is no debate about him being in the team of the season.

Seventeen goals for the season and carrying Tottenham for the majority of it has seen him earn his left-wing spot.

Forward: Luis Suarez | Liverpool

Off the pitch and even sometimes on the pitch, Suarez is not very well received by many football fans, but no-one can question his footballing skills.

Sensational on the ball and just a major threat to any defence means the Liverpool man has thoroughly earned his spot in the season XI. Currently on course to win the golden boot, his 22 goals have helped Liverpool keep their dream of European football alive.

Forward: Robin van Persie | Manchester United

Despite experiencing a goal-drought recently, the Dutchman has been sensational for another season - just for a different club.

Van Persie left Arsenal in the summer, joined United and hasn't looked back. He has scored 19 goals for the Red Devils and has all-but helped them win back the Premier League title from Manchester City.

So there is my Premier League team of the season, but there should always be a substitutes' bench.

So here are the seven players that narrowly missed the cut:

Subs: Simon Mignolet, Branislav Ivanovic, Marouane Fellaini, Eden Hazard, Michael Carrick, Theo Walcott, Christian Benteke
