The Premier League Team of the Season, as chosen by EA Sports, has been unveiled late on Friday evening.
And though they look set to be pipped to the title, it is Mikel Arteta’s brilliant Arsenal who boast the most representatives in the star-studded XI.
This comes with no fewer than four Gunners stars included, in the form of Aaron Ramsdale, William Saliba, Oleksandr Zinchenko, and captain Martin Odegaard.
Next up come title favourites Manchester City, whose scintillating recent form has been rewarded courtesy of the inclusions of all of Ruben Dias, Kevin De Bruyne, and the record-breaking Erling Haaland.
Neighbours Manchester United, meanwhile, are the final club with multiple names in the line-up, Marcus Rashord and summer addition Casemiro flying the flag for Erik ten Hag’s troops.
Finally, the right-back berth is deservedly filled by Newcastle United standout Kieran Trippier, with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah joining him on the right flank owing to a haul of 18 goals and seven assists to date.
