Just over three months into the season and I'm going to take a look at the best XI in the Premier League so far.

Goalkeeper - Artur Boruc

With the joint-most clean sheets this season, Southampton's Artur Boruc is, for me, the stand out Goalkeeper so far this season. He has kept six clean sheets in nine games and has seen the ball in the back of his net just three times, the least out of any keeper in the league, by half.

Right-back - Seamus Coleman

Everton have had an excellent start to the season and it's in part down to their full backs, that's why I have picked them both in this team. Seamus Coleman has helped his side to four clean sheets so far and has added a goal and an assist for his team.

Left-back - Leighton Baines 

This probably isn't a surprise to many, having ended last season being tipped for a move to Man United, Baines was the in-form English player last year. This year he has picked up where he left of and has helped Everton to 6th in the table. He's scored twice this season, not just goals, two stunning free-kicks and it looks as if he may do even better this year than last.

Centre-back - Dejan Lovren

Being a newcomer to the Premier League can have it's struggles, but not for Dejan Lovren. He's helped Southampton to fifth in the league and along with Boruc has helped his team concede just three goals. He also popped up with a late winner against Liverpool, at Anfield.

Centre-back - Michael Dawson

Spurs started the season fast and were tipped for Champions League, while that hasn't changed much, they have been a little less out there. Dawson, the club captain has helped them to fourth in the league, keeping six clean sheets and conceding just five goals along the way.

Left-midfield - Adnan Januzaj

Whilst he hasn't played every game this season, from what games he has played, he's commanded attention.Scoring two goals on his full Premier League debut, the Belgian is looking a real hot prospect. United's season has been slow so far but fans have the prospect of Januzaj to look forward to.

Right-midfield - Aaron Ramsey

The Welsh international has been in the form of his life for Arsenal this season. Scoring six goals in the league with five assists, he's perhaps the most in-form player of the season. He's helped Arsenal to top spot, along with the signing and influence of Mesut Ozil, Ramsey looks set to have the best season of his career.

Centre-midfield - Yaya Toure

While City haven't been at their sparkling best this season, a few players have stood out. Yaya Toure is one of them, netting four goals so far, he's helped City to seventh in the league. His pace, power and overall play makes him one of the best midfielders in the world.

Centre attacking-midfield - Mesut Ozil

When Arsenal bought Ozil at the start of the season, it took a lot of people by surprise. That's not to say people were surprised because he wasn't good enough because he's proven he's plenty good enough for the Premier League with three goals and four assists helping Arsenal to top spot.

Striker - Daniel Sturridge 

Sturridge is top scorer in the league so far with 10 goals and has helped Liverpool to third in the table. His partnership with Luis Suarez is probably the most powerful in the Premier League at the moment with Suarez netting six goals too. 

Striker - Wayne Rooney

While not the top scorer, Rooney has found his form again this season. After a bitter end to last season he looks enthusiastic again under David Moyes and has orchestrated most of United's good play this season netting six times with it. He's also provided five assists for his United team mates.

Subs: Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker, Chico, Steven Gerrard, David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Oilivier Giroud.
