Premier League: Christmas all-time XI

Published 2 Comments

With Christmas upon us, it seemed like the perfect time to put together an all-star XI of 'alternate' players for the festive season.

The majority of players are still active in the Premier League, although there were some 'legends' we simply couldn't leave out of this side.

In goal, we've gone for a twist on an Aston Villa veteran who has enjoyed spells with the likes of Newcastle and Manchester City.

At the back, there's a controversial selection with a midfielder at the back, but because it's Christmas we can get away with it. A former Fulham 'legend' and ex-Manchester United full-back also make the cut.

Moving into midfield, and there are a couple of West Ham and Chelsea old boys in the side, as well as an Arsenal playmaker. Aston Villa's rising England starlet also anchors the team.

Finally, up-front, we've got an injured Hammer who is getting back to form and a couple of Red Devils old boys who enjoyed massive success at Old Trafford.

Worked out who they are yet? Enjoy...
