PREMIER LEAGUE ALL-STAR XI

Manchester United are at the Red Bull Arena tonight taking on the MLS All-Stars – including former Premier League favourites Thierry Henry and David Beckham.

And that got us thinking – what would an English Premier League All-Star team look like?

We’d love to see a Premier League All-Star Team take on the reigning Champions in a pre-season match-up every year – a bit like the Community Shield, but more entertaining and relevant.

But, given that players can’t play for both squads, the All-Star XI would have to exclude any members of the team that wins the Premier League – which, in the case of the 2010-2011 season was Manchester United.

Given that one simple rule, here’s our best guess at what a Premier League All-Star XI would look like, and – of course – what football boots they wear!

Goalkeeper:

Joe Hart – Manchester City – Umbro Geometra Pro


Defenders:

Bacary Sagna – Arsenal – Puma PowerCat 1.10
Vincent Kompany – Manchester City – Nike T90 Laser III
Brede Hangeland – Fulham – Umbro Speciali
Ashley Cole – Chelsea – Nike Tiempo Legend IV

Midfielders:

Samir Nasri – Arsenal – adidas F50 adiZero
Rafael Van Der Vaart – Tottenham Hotspur – Nike CTR360 II
Charlie Adam – Liverpool – adidas adiPower Predator
Gareth Bale – Tottenham Hotspur – adidas F50 adiZero

Strikers:

Carlos Tevez – Manchester City – Nike CTR360 II
Didier Drogba – Chelsea – Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly III

 

But as always, we want to know who would make the cut in your All-Star XI.

Remember, they can’t be from Manchester United!

    • @Gabriel good picks but read the last line again:
      “Remember, they can’t be from Manchester United!”
      Robin Van Persie as a forward.  I’m not sure if he would go ahead of Tevez or Drogba by looking at the whole season. but when he was healthy, his strike rate was very good.  

    • They have made the team without Manchester United players as United are the champions, and they can’t play for both sides…

  • 4-5-1
    GK- Petr Cech
    DF- Sagna- Kompany- Ivanovic- Cole
    CDM- Essien
    RM- Nasri
    LM- Bale
    CM- Modric and Van der Vaart
    ST- Drogba or Berbatov

  • im sorry but drogba wasn’t even in the top 10 of the scorers in the premier league, i would have had Van Persie ahead of him

  • What about Bent? Does Ashley Young count because he wasn’t with Man U when they won the league but arrived in summer?

  • I say put the EPL all stars vs barcelonaFC.  That would be a great match!  I mean MANU cant even compete with FCB but im sure the EPL all stars would put up a good fight, might even win….

  • Urip youre an idiot  the premier league english team is terrible    its practically the english nationqal team which is practically a joke hahaah    I say FCB vs EPL all all stars  thats a much better game than EPL english all stars haha   Youre a fool Urip and your answer is totally biased
