Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher picked their Premier League XIs of the decade

Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville pick their PL Team of the Decade

We're just over a month away from the end of a spectacular footballing decade.

In the space of 10 years, the game has evolved and developed at a rapid rate, with the Premier League continuing and accelerating its globalisation process.

England's top-flight is now the most watched sporting league in the world and since the start of 2010, it has housed some seriously talented players.

The sheer volume of world-class footballers playing their trade on English shores over the past ten years makes selecting a Team of the Decade near enough impossible.

But Monday Night Football pair Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville gave it their best shot after Aston Villa's 2-0 win over Newcastle last night.

Below, you can see both XIs from the Sky Sports pundits.

Carragher's XI: David De Gea, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Virgil van Dijk, Cesar Azpilicueta, N'Golo Kante, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Gareth Bale, Sergio Aguero, Eden Hazard.

Neville's XI: David De Gea, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Virgil van Dijk, Cesar Azpilicueta, Eden Hazard, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, Luis Suarez.

Amazingly, the two Premier League legends agree on nine players - although Neville bizarrely has Hazard in a central midfield three.

In the studio, Carragher reacted cheekily to Hazard's position in Neville's XI, saying: "He has got three players who want to be in the same position.

"This is why England never won anything when he was a player or coach. Don't try and just get the best players in!"

Surprisingly, Neville was the only one to pick another Liverpool player along with Van Dijk, with the former Manchester United defender acknowledging the greatness of Suarez.

Carragher instead opted for former Tottenham superstar Bale, with Kante in midfield instead of Hazard.

The former Liverpool man's team certainly looks the more balanced on paper!

Unsurprisingly, no current or former Arsenal players make the cut, the only member of the top six not to feature.
