Premier League: Current top-four XI

Published 1 Comments

Here is a starting 11 made up of players who are playing for the clubs currently sitting in the top 4 spots of the Premier League - Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Southampton.

The team is made up of players who are currently doing the best for their clubs and are in the best form at present. The formation is a 3-4-3 system to get the players with the best stats into the team.

Goalkeeper: Artur Boruc – Southampton

The Pole has had a fantastic start to the Premier League season. Making saves left and right, Boruc is a big reason why Southampton's impressive start to the new campaign looks set to continue.

Right centre-back: Dejan Lovren – Southampton

In the middle of what I feel is the strongest defence currently in the top-flight, Lovren is proving to be a fantastic signing for Southampton. Forming a great partnership with Jose Fonte and the rest of the Saints defence, he has been superb and is one to continue watching to see how he develops.

Centre-back: John Terry – Chelsea

A rock at the heart of a Chelsea defence which has been so solid for years, Terry looks to be shining under returning manager Jose Mourinho. Chelsea have just three clean sheets but Terry is looking very composed in the middle of the back four. He has also managed to score against Tottenham as well as registering an assist in the derby against Fulham.

Left centre-back: Jose Fonte – Southampton

Alongside Lovren, Fonte is looking like a very strong centre-back. With his great aerial dominance, he has made some good headers and is looking a very solid Premier League player. With five clean sheets in seven games and Southampton above both Manchester clubs, it will be incredible to see him continue this fine form.

Right-midfield: Oscar – Chelsea

Seemingly Mourinho’s favourite midfielder within Chelsea’s range of talented and youthful attacking midfield prospects, the Brazilian has pushed two-time Chelsea player of the year Juan Mata out of the centre of the attacking three and is shining with three goals so far.

Central-midfield: Ramires – Chelsea

Running up and down the field, Ramires' importance to the Chelsea midfield and defence is sometimes not recognised due to the talented players around him. Ramires has been out pacing opposition defences once again this season and is splitting them apart with super speed as well as control and skill on the ball.

Central-midfield: Aaron Ramsey – Arsenal

Finally starting to live up to the potential which he has been seen to have for so long, Ramsey is having a very promising start to the 2013/14 season. With four goals in Arsenal’s last four league games, as well as two assists since the start of the season, Ramsey is a key figure in Arsenal’s dominant start to the new campaign.

Left-midfield: Adam Lallana – Southampton

Scoring in Southampton’s recent 2-0 win over Swansea, Lallana is really pushing Southampton forward to continue their impressive form in England’s top division. Also tracking back to help in defence when Lallana has been on the field Southampton have only conceded one goal this season.

Right-forward: Daniel Sturridge – Liverpool

With six goals in seven games, the Premier League’s current top scorer is looking fantastic. The Englishman lead Liverpool’s front line well in the absence of Luis Suarez and is still shining in the aftermath of the Uruguayan’s return.

Centre-forward: Olivier Giroud - Arsenal

After four goals in Arsenal’s first four games, Giroud hasn’t scored for three successive league games now yet is still playing a key role in the Gunners' dominating attacking displays. Holding up the ball and setting up teammates, Giroud will surely find the net again soon with the over-load of creative minds playing behind him.

Left-forward: Luis Suarez – Liverpool

Playing just two games so far in the Premier League, it seems as if Suarez has been working hard in training as on the pitch he has been superb. The partnership between him and Sturridge has led to Suarez scoring three goals in two matches and he will undoubtedly continue to score many goals this season.
