The Alternative 2012/13 Premier League Team of the Season

The best of the rest.

Check in to Aston Villa vs Sunderland

An XI made up of players NOT selected by the PFA.

Begovic Man United

Goalkeeper: Asmir Begovic (Stoke City)

Stoke City may well have been down near the foot of the table for portions of the season but that hasn’t stopped the Bosnian from collecting 12 clean sheets.

Shaw Tottenham

Left-Back: Luke Shaw (Southampton)

Youngster has displayed excellent form this term and it’s no surprise that some of the Premier League’s ‘Big Boys’ are keeping a close eye on the full-back.

Johnny Evans

Centre-Back: Jonny Evans (Man United)

Arguably the most solid of Sir Alex Ferguson’s central defensive options this term, should perhaps have got the nod in the PFA XI but gets a spot in ours.


Centre-Back: Matija Nastasic (Man City)

Serbian youngster has impressed since arriving at the Etihad Stadium this summer, keeping Joleon Lescott out of the first team.

Rafael Da Silva Manchester United

Right-Back: Rafael (Man United)

Brazilian has been in superb form this term, maturing into a more complete package and making the right-back spot in the Man United starting eleven his own.

Steven Gerrard

Central-Midfield: Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)

Veteran midfielder has shown a real return to form this term becoming one of the Premier League’s leading assist makers this term.

Lampard Brentford

Central-Midfield: Frank Lampard (Chelsea)

Since the arrival of Rafa Benitez the England man has shown a real spark, is Chelsea’s top Premier League goal-scorer.

Cazorla Reading

Attacking Midfield: Santi Cazorla (Arsenal)

Spaniard has had an eventful first season in the Premier League, scoring a dozen goals and providing seven assists for the Gunners.

Michu Norwich City

Supporting Striker: Michu (Swansea City)

Undoubtedly the bargain buy of the season the £1.9m signing has cracked in 17 Premier League goals and helped his side to a Capital One Cup triumph to boot.

Benteke Liverpool Target

Striker: Christian Benteke (Aston Villa)

Without the Belgian’s goals it’s safe to say that Paul Lambert’s side would’ve been relegated a long time ago.

Lukaku sunderland

Striker: Romelu Lukaku (West Brom)

Loaned out Chelsea man has been in superb form at the Baggies, netting 14 goals for West Brom.
