Just over a third of the English Premier League season has past and it’s been extremely entertaining. Goals flooding in from all over the place. New stars making their names at their respective clubs. Old ones fading out of the limelight. Controversial decisions. Fantastic goals. Great saves. John Terry doing something wrong. Basically, the regular service we have become accustomed to in the Premier league every season has continued onto this one and with that I'm giving you the players that I think would make the team of the season, so far. This line-up will probably change in the coming months, but for now, let’s satisfy ourselves with it. We’ll go for a typical 4-4-2 formation and start right at the back:
GK - Michel Vorm (Goalkeeper – Swansea City)
How bloody good has he been? Conceding only once at home so far, the Dutchman has been a rock in goal for the Swans. He could easily be the bargain of the season.
RB - Kyle Walker (Defender – Tottenham Hotspur)
Spurs’ right back has been a revelation this season and has deservedly been called up into the England squad. Strangely enough, in every game he’s played for Spurs, they haven’t lost.
CB - Phil Jones (Defender – Manchester United)
A big price tag for a big player. His move from Blackburn has been fully justified as he’s started more games, in all competitions, than any of United’s defenders so far this season. A feat he probably wouldn’t have expected this early in his Old Trafford career.
CB - Vicent Kompany (Defender – Manchester City)
Best defender in the Premier League at the moment without a shadow of a doubt. When he’s missing, City’s defence looks untidy. He’s taken the captain’s armband and lived up to the role.
LB - Ryan Taylor (Defender – Newcastle United)
But for his performances, Jose Enrique would have gotten the nod here at left back. The second Taylor of Newcastle has not only been putting in great defensive performances this season, but he’s also chipping in with quite a few man-of-the-match displays!
LM - David Silva (Midfielder – Manchester City)
That pass against Manchester United demonstrated all you need to know about the little Spaniard. Definitely a contender for Player of the season if he keeps this form up. He should be knocking on the Spanish National team’s door, because his form merits a place in the starting eleven.
AM - Rafael Van Der Vaart (Midfielder – Tottenham Hostpur)
The Flying Dutchman seems to relish playing in an attacking side like Tottenham Hotspur. A magician on the ball, his 6 goals and 2 assists are what have made Spurs tick this season. Luka who? VDV is the king of White Hart Lane.
DM - Cheikh Tiote (Midfielder – Newcastle United)
Is there a better defensive midfielder in the league? He could probably slot right into the starting 11 of pretty much every team in the Premier League at the moment. That’s how good he is.
RM - Juan Mata (Midfielder – Chelsea)
His creativity has been the biggest spark in Chelsea’s relatively slow start to the season. The Blues’ new number 10 holds the key to keeping their title hopes alive. Like Silva, should be forcing his way into the starting line of Spain’s national team.
ST - Robin Van Persie (Striker – Arsenal)
No matter what anyone says, the Gunners captain is carrying that side on his shoulders and leading by example. His performances this season have been nothing short of brilliant, and would make a former Dutch number 10 at Arsenal very proud.
ST – Edin Dzeko (Striker – Manchester City)
For all the noise that Aguero’s move has made this season, the big Bosnian has been the one that’s been scoring goals for fun. Having had some difficulties at the start of his City career, Dzeko now finds himself just behind Van Persie in the top scorers charts with 10 goals so far.
