MayThe4thBeWithYou! It’s Star Wars Day, and we have been going pun crazy in the COS office!

Here is our Star Wars XI of footballers who could slot straight into the epic fantasy saga.

There are a still couple of positions up for grabs. Tweet @JoeFish08 with your suggestions.

Video compilation of Eric Dier’s brutal tackles v Chelsea will soothe pain of Tottenham fans
Arsenal monitoring £25m-rated striker who is also wanted by Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United

GK: Bobba Cech

The bounty hunter. Arsenal should hire Bobba Fett to bring them the Premier League title.

DF: Kyle Skywalker

Go back for more training with Yoda and Tottenham Hotspur might win the title next year.

Kyle SkyWalker

DF: Han Kolo Toure

The Liverpool defender is the perfect footballer to portray the coolest man in the galaxy.

DF: Jabba the Hutton

Jabba may actually have done a better job in Aston Villa’s defence this season.

MF: Lua Lua Binks

We didn’t want to give Jar Jar the recognition, but this one was just too good to miss out.

MF: Ryan Mason-Windu

The Spurs midfielder even wears purple boots, just like Windu’s lightsaber! Perfect!

Ryan Mason boots

MF: Kevin Princess Leia Boateng

The AC Milan midfielder would not look quite as good in that famous golden bikini.

MF: Rey-Mar

The main character of The Force Awakens meets Barcelona’s Ballon d’Or nominee.

ST: Carlos Chew-Bacca

Communication with his teammates could be a problem. Kolo will have to translate.

ST: Obi-Wan Ameobi

This is the forward we are looking for. Rey-Mar can whip in crosses for the ex-Newcastle United big man!

ST: Darth Vardy

He may not be your father, but he has been the daddy of the Premier League this year.
