Liverpool transfer rumours
Carlos Tevez considering Liverpool transfer

Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester City have all got players in the side, as well as a few more infamous twitter users from smaller teams…

de Gea

GK) David De Gea Manchester United

The amazing form displayed by the 24-year-old throughout the campaign will have had people talking, and rumours of a move to Real Madrid won’t have hurt either.

RB) Pablo Zabaleta, Manchester City

A lot of the Citizens’ problems stemmed from poor defending, and as a result their defenders will have been blamed a lot by Twitter users.

LB) Luke Shaw, Manchester United

It has been an up and down debut Old Trafford campaign for the 19-year-old, resulting in copious chatter. Recent controversy over his England availability won’t have hurt either.

CB) Rio Ferdinand, QPR

Well known for being a personality on social media, but it could be the outpouring of grief for his late wife that gets the former England international here.

CB) Vincent Kompany, Manchester City

Similarly to Zabaleta, the Belgian was blamed for several defensive errors in the campaign. He was dropped to the bench at times, and had a rumoured falling out with teammate Fernandinho according to the Daily Mail.
