Jamie Carragher names Premier League team of 2017... and it's class

Marouane Fellaini  Knee injury

He has not been in charge of a Liverpool game this season, but did referee United's 4-0 win over West Ham United on the opening weekend of the Premier League.

But that's what Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher attempted to do for the Telegraph.

The Premier League champions have four players in Carragher's side, Spurs have three, his former team Liverpool have two players, while there is one player each from the two Manchester clubs.

Goalkeeper: David de Gea (Manchester United)'Unfortunately I am going to have to start with a Manchester United player, who I actually think is the best keeper in the world at the moment'.

Azpilicueta proved to be a versatile defender with the ability to play at left-back and right-back but current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has tended to use the 28-year-old in a centre-half role.

Jamie Carragher has named four Chelsea stars in his Premier League team of the season so far.


Alderweireld has emerged as arguably the Premier League's top centre back, and his partnership with Jan Vertonghen has been vital in the heart of the Tottenham defence. "Alongside him, Belgium team-mate Vertonghen was not far behind".

Whilst Spurs were known as being flimsy defensively and leaked too many goals, but that has all changed under Mauricio Pochettino, as Spurs have become arguably the Premier League's top defence.

In midfield, N'Golo Kante, last season's player of the year, gets the nod beside Kevin de Bruyne and Philippe Coutinho.

"The defensive player in the middle".

"The standout player at the start of this season".

"It's not easy in the Premier League with competition from Romelu Lukaku, Alvaro Morata, Sergio Aguero, but I am going to go for Harry Kane", he wrote. "He adds goals, pace, assists".
