Former adult film star Mia Khalifa has named her Premier League dream team after becoming a fan of the English game over the last couple years. A few notable inclusions were added by Khalifa.
Coming to fame as one of the most viral adult stars in 2014, Khalifa promptly retired from that profession to move on to becoming a sports presenter and a host of many sports-based podcasts.
Khalifa went with a 4-4-2 diamond, selecting two West Ham players and two Brighton players in the combined XI.
The reasoning behind many of the players was comical to say the least but Khalifa did point out that a lot of the players were being chosen not entirely due to their football ability, but rather were her personal favourites.
When selecting Mathew Ryan in goal, Khalifa said she initially chose him because she believed he was the Atlanta Falcons NFL quarterback of the same name.
The backline of Kyle Walker, Virgil van Dijk, and Harry Maguire were normal choices, although Declan Rice at left-back was one of the more perplexing decisions. However, she backed it up with calling herself his good-luck charm after he scored against Arsenal at the first match she ever went to.

The midfield diamond consisted of Aaron Mooy, Raheem Sterling, Daniel James and Felipe Anderson. Khalifa compared Aussie Mooy to NBA star Kawhi Leonard, in that they are both stoic winners.
The front two were Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah, whom she chose through actual footballing ability due to them constantly winning the golden boot.
To finish, her manager was Harry Redknapp. This was due to his unbelievable achievement in taking home the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! first-place trophy.
