It has been quite an astonishing Premier League this season with plenty of goals, bags of controversy and some great games that have all combined to make it one of the most open League table in years as we fast approach the business end of the season. The only certainty is that it will be the Manchester clubs fighting for the title, after the London trio of Chelsea, Arsenal and surprisingly Tottenham have been unable to keep pace with both United and City. It means there will be arguably a three-way fight for the Champions League spots in the Capital and you will be a brave man to put a bet down on who the two out of the three it is going to be.
Down the bottom it has been equally tight with two points just separating the bottom five teams in the country. QPR are the surprise package down there and many neutrals will have been surprised by Rangers’ struggles, compared to the performance of the other promoted teams; Swansea and Norwich City. There is certainly plenty to play for in the final 11 games of the season and no doubt plenty of twists and turns along the way too.
This latest XI I have selected focuses on the players who have ‘surprised’ me this season and who have changed the perception I had of them even before a ball was actually kicked.
