New look England starting XI based on current Premier League form. Arsenal star and Liverpool duo included…
A number of excellent players are often overlooked for national duty, despite performing superbly with their respective clubs. But what would the England team look like if it was based entirely on current form?

Here is how an England starting XI based on current Premier League form should look according to WhoScored.com:
GK) Fraser Forster – Southampton – 6.76
After being tipped for relegation following a summer of departures, Southampton have been performing way above expectations this season. The reliability of Fraser Forster following his move from Celtic is a large part of that.
RB) Eric Dier – Tottenham – 7.25
A surprise package this season, the versatile young defender got off to an excellent start to the campaign with two goals in quick succession. One for the future perhaps, but certainly capable of making an impact now as well.
CB) Curtis Davies – Hull – 7.65
Arguably one of the most overlooked English players in the Premier League, Davies was one of the most consistent centre-backs in the country last season and many were calling for him to be selected for the World Cup. Still performing to an extremely high level this campaign, but still yet to receive an international cap.
CB) Michael Dawson – Hull – 7.63
As Davies’ new centre-back partner, Dawson has been impressing at Hull since his move from Tottenham in the summer. The Tigers have been having to soak up an enormous amount of pressure in their opening set of fixtures, but Dawson and Davies have dealt with everything that’s been thrown at them.
LB) Ryan Bertrand – Southampton – 7.31
The Chelsea loanee looks to have a new lease on life since his switch to Southampton, but unfortunately for him he is playing in a position that England are well stocked in with a number of quality players ahead of him.
