The best XI of top tier talent thus far this season.
Goalkeeper: Tim Howard (Everton)
The American international has racked up eight clean sheets and has helped Everton to secure the best defensive record in the Premier League.
Left-Back: Luke Shaw (Southampton)
Youngster has matured into one of the best full-backs in the top tier and Southampton usually struggle when he’s not involved.
Centre-Back: Phil Jagielka (Everton)
Rock solid Toffees star must be set for a spot in Roy Hodgson’s 2014 World Cup squad.
Centre-Back: Per Mertesacker (Arsenal)
German has been a man mountain at the heart of the Gunners defence.
Right-Back: Pablo Zabaleta (Man City)
Great defensively but also a real force going forward.
