5 A-side Team of the Season

With the season drawing to an exhilarating close, and with Leicester City and Spurs taking the title race down to the wire. I take a look at the players who I’d want playing in my team.

(1-1-2-1)  IMG_2989
Lloris (Tottenham)

Hugo-Lloris

The Spurs shotstopper has certainly had a season to remember. Tottenham have the best
defensive record in the league, with the consistent form of their captain playing a major role. Bodes well for France with Euro 2016 on the horizon.

 

N-Golo-Kante-608036

Kanté (Leicester City)

The 25 year old frenchman tops the charts for tackles and interceptions with an eye for passing too. Calm head on young shoulders, has been vital to Leicester’s title challenge. Has broken up attacking threats from opponents all season long.

Payet (West Ham United)  Payet

Remember watching West Ham Vs Man City at the back end of Jan on Sky. Payet was unbelievable in that game, he embarrassed a majority of the Manchester City  midfield with his skill and trickery. It’s a pity he got injured during the season. But when he has played he’s gone from strength to strength. West Ham will hope they can hang on to him in the summer. Boy his free kicks aren’t half bad either.

SOCCER-626598Mahrez (Leicester City)

Arguably the star player of the season, Mahrez has enthralled the King Power Stadium with some stellar performances with his mazy runs, assists & goals. Leicester will be hoping he signs a contract extension ASAP. Otherwise Europe’s elite will be sniffing around.

 

Harry Kane (Tottenham)Tottenham's Harry Kane

Is he the best finisher in the league? Statistics would suggest he is after bagging his 22nd league goal against Liverpool on Saturday evening. I’d still put him behind Augero, but he’s definitely England’s best forward at this moment in time. Instinctive finisher

 

Subs:

Morgan (Leicester City)

This time last season, Leicester City were bottom of the league. Now they look odds on to do the unthinkable. The 1-0 win over Saints whereMorgan scored too, helped to establish a 7 point gap between themselves and Spurs. Morgan has been ever-present this season in the league for Leicester. A rock at the back and is crucial to Leicester’s success.

Dier (Tottenham)

For me, he has to start for England in the summer. An inspired decision from Pochettino to move Dier from CB to Defensive Mid. Looks at ease with the ball at his feet.

Alli (Tottenham)

Surely another candidate to go straight into Roy’s starting XI in the summer after his performances for Spurs this season. Some question his temperament, but he is an unbelievable prospect.

 

How would your team of the season look?

Thanks for reading,

Tom

Sports Graduate. Ever faithful that England will succeed at a major tournament one day. Once I scored a 5 - a - side hat-trick. Those were the days!
