Premier League best XI

A hit and miss for some, a sublime start for others, the Premier League is back to it's prime and is promising fans a spectacular season.

All teams have played seven games and currently Arsenal are standing on top of the table- surprisingly or not.

Now I will try to pick the 11 players that played better than the rest and are the best in the league so far.

Formation: 4-4-2

The most typical choice for a formation, all sides can accomodate it

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet (Liverpool)

The Belgian has proved he is one of the best goalkeepers and is doing a very good job between the posts at Anfield.

Three clean sheets in seven games is quite an impressive start for Mignolet and he has conceded only five goals so far this season.

He even saved a penalty in the 89th minute in his official debut against Stoke City.

Right-back: Seamus Coleman (Everton)

A revelation so far this season, the full-back has scored once and provided one assist in his first seven games.

Very consistent in his displays, the Irish defender has been very solid in defence and is also helping his team up-front.

Centre-back: John Terry (Chelsea)

Many would say that John Terry is under-performing, but under new manager Jose Mourinho, the English defender has been revived.

A goal, an assist, and the massive average of 6.9 clearances per game have proven that Terry is still the wall in defence we all know.

Centre-back: Jose Fonte (Southampton)

This could be an odd choice for some, but 29-year-old Portuguese defender has been very solid alongside Dejan Lovren at the beack for Southampton.

Five cleen sheets in the first seven games shows how solid the Saints are and Fonte has contributed to this with an average of  8.9 clearances per game and has even scored once, but nobody noticed his amazing displays.

Left-back: Ben Davies (Swansea)

Although Swansea aren't impressing as much this term, Ben Davies has surely made a good impression.

The young full-back has scored twice and helped Swansea keep two clean sheets and is doing quite a good job at left-back.

Right midfielder/winger: Morgan Amalfitano (West Bromwich Albion)

Since his transfer to the Hawthorns, the Frenchman has hit the ground running in England with two goals and two assists in four games.

A constant threat on the right, the pacy winger has made 32 crosses, but his brilliant play has been unnoticed, which is a shame.

Central midfielder: Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)

Four goals and two assists from a midfielder- Aaron Ramsey has defied his critics with his performances so far this season.

Unbelievably effective, the Welshman has been a sensation for Arsenal and could prove to be even more important than Mesut Özil.

Central midfielder: Yaya Toure (Manchester City)

The African beast has been involved in a goal in all of his seven games for City with six goals and an assist.

He is always helping the defence and you can hardly get by the massive Yaya Toure.

Left midfielder/winger: Oscar

Yes, this isn't Oscar's position, but he had to be included in the team, so he will make do with being on the left.

Thanks to Mourinho, Oscar's game has risen to the nest level. The four goals and the assist in his seven games are saying enough and we shouldn't forget the fact that he is helping a lot when Chelsea is defending.

Right Striker- Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)

Eight goals, two assists, seven games- the pure stats of Daniel Sturridge- the Premier League's best player.

As his goal celebration says, Sturridge is "riding the wave" and is waving past defenders to score goals in his every single game.

The English striker has been a sensation this season. Just incredible.

Left Striker: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

The man that has been the driving force for Manchester City this term. With five goals and two assists in six goals, Aguero has again showed the world he is one of the best strikers on the green field.

The little Argentinian could even lead City to European glory if he continues with his sublime performances.


Artur Boruc (Southampton), Leighton Baines (Everton), Steven Caulker (Cardiff City), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Mesut Özil (Arsenal), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Romelu Lukaku (Everton)

The bench contains a lot of star names, but some of them haven't been the best so far.

Manager- Brendan Rodgers

Every team needs a manager and the Liverpool boss has showed he can make a good time into a great one and so far this season he is the best on the sidelines.

That is my opinion, based on the players' performances so far this season.
