Andrea Pirlo picks his Premier League XI

Published 10 Comments

Football News

Even by Premier League standards, this season has been amazingly unpredictable.

Leicester City - 5,000/1 to win the league back in August - are currently top of the table with Tottenham four points behind them in second place.

However, as arguably the coolest man in football, Andrea Pirlo doesn’t seem to be getting caught up in the considerable hype.

When asked to name his Premier League XI, the midfield maestro stuck to the established order with no Leicester or Tottenham players getting the nod.

Manchester United were also excluded from the composite team with Pirlo picking Joe Hart over David de Gea, perhaps as an apology for that Panenka penalty in 2012.

Four other Manchester City players made the cut alongside three Arsenal stars, two from Chelsea and Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool.

As a World Cup winner - not to mention his two Champions League winner’s medals and six Serie A titles - Pirlo’s opinion is certainly worth listening to and typical of his elegant playing style, the 36-year-old clearly believes form is temporary, whilst class is permanent.

Not sure United fans will be so understanding though!
