Sky Sports' Premier League XI For The Season So Far

Sky Sports' Premier League XI For The Season So Far

It's only early days but Sky Sports have put together a Premier League Team of the Season two-and-a-half months into the campaign.

Adam Smith has compiled the XI through 34 Premier League matchday stats as part of the 'Power Rankings', with the season accumulative chart utilised to put the team together and bring about some surprise calls.

For starters, many might not think Hugo Lloris has had a good start to the season but the Spurs shotstopper gets in ahead of Ederson after keeping a clean sheet every two games (four in eight games).

Ederson, Alisson and Kepa narrowly missed out.

Arsenal's Shkodran Mustafi partners Manchester City's in-form centre-back Aymeric Laporte, with Sky Sports noting their stats are more attacking-orientated and play a big part in the German's inclusion.

Nevertheless, the former Valencia man leads the way in tackling, aerial, blocking, interception, clearance and duels - with Virgil van Dijk, Michael Keane, Shane Duffy, Steve Cook and Harry Maguire the other contenders.

Kieran Trippier slots in at right-back thanks in part to his 26 tackles this season, his stunning long-range strike goal against Fulham and his three assists. Chelsea's Marcos Alonso completes the back four after creating 15 chances from open play and winning 63 duels.

Jose Holebas, Andy Robertson, Matt Doherty Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker weren't too far off getting a look-in.

In central midfield, David Silva simply has to make the team following another irresistible start to the season. The Manchester City No.21 has created 31 chances in the league this season - more than anyone other player.

Fernandinho was close to partnering his club colleague in the middle of the park but is pipped by Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson, who has five goals (two long-rangers) and two assists this term.

Fernandinho, James Maddison, Wilfried Ndidi, Paul Pogba and Granit Xhaka just miss out.

Mohamed Salah and Raheem Sterling are the two best-performing wingers in the top-flight this season, with both having six goals apiece - though Sterling has five assists to Salah's three.

Felipe Anderson, Willian, Bernardo Silva, Lucas Moura and Ryan Fraser are the other impressive performers.

Finally, up top we finish with Eden Hazard playing behind Sergio Aguero. Hazard, despite not starting four games this season, has seven goals so far - while Aguero's stunning strike past David De Gea in the Manchester derby was his eighth and means he's leading the Golden Boot race.

The pair are level on four assists in Premier League games this campaign. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Richarlison, Harry Kane and Callum Wilson are the other attackers in the equation.
