ADL’s Premier League team of the season: three Chelsea stars and Leicester hero

RM- Alexis Sanchez

Sometimes the pressure of a big-money move can overawe a player, meaning that they return to where they came from soon after for a fraction of the price. However, the Chilean has been electric this year, and has had a debut season that compares with former Arsenal greats Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp. He is certainly a contender for player of the season based on the fact that he has been incredible no matter where he has played.

CM- Fabian Delph

It is unfair that players from the sides near the right end of the table always get the recognition, while those in the bottom half fail to get a mention. The centre-midfield pairing for this team both come from sides that beaten the drop because of their influences. First up, Fabian Delph has been one of a couple players for Aston Villa to actually drag them from the brink of relegation. His powerful runs have driven the side forward, and allowed for the defence to have the support they need, before almost instantly providing Christian Benteke with a perfect cross for a valuable goal.

The Leicester midfielder used all of his experience and quality to lead the Foxes from the bottom of the table, and almost certain relegation, to relatively comfortable safety. He gave Nigel Pearson’s men the confidence that they could get themselves out of the hole they were in. His passing, positioning, and leadership will be irreplaceable, should he decide to move on.

LM- Eden Hazard

Despite Chelsea’s team being full of star names that have helped make them quite clearly the best side in the table, the Belgian winger has stood out enormously. His trickery and quick feet has meant that opponents have had to double up on him to try and keep his influence to a minimum. Nevertheless, he still dominated sides and was rightly awarded the PFA Player of the Year.
