The best of the best for the current season.
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois (Atletico Madrid)
Loaned out Chelsea keeper has been in phenomenal form for Atletico Madrid, helping the Spanish side to secure the best defensive record in La Liga.
Left-Back: Leighton Baines (Everton)
Creator in chief for Everton, a player who is solid at the back and an excellent contributor going forward. The most important man in David Moyes’ squad and good enough to keep out Europe’s ‘Elite’ in this XI.
Brazilian has been a rock at the heart of the PSG defence, more than justifying the huge expense the Parc des Princes side invested in the powerful centre-back.
Centre-Back: Thiago Silva (PSG)
Centre-Back: Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus)
Juventus have conceded a miserly 19 goals in 30 Serie A matches this term and that is down in no small part to the Italian international who has been superb this term.
Right-Back: Philipp Lahm (Bayern Munich)
German full-back has been around for some time but is arguably in the best form of his career to date. Breaks forward with real purpose and is rarely caught in possession or out of position.
