GK – Jussi Jääskeläinen [ Bolton Wanderers & West Ham United ]
Jääskeläinen made 436 appearances in the Premier League for Bolton and West Ham keeping 108 clean sheet. In 2012, in the Premier League 20 Seasons Awards, a double-save from Jääskeläinen against Manchester United on 20 October 2001 came third in a poll deciding the best save in the Premier League’s 20-year existence. He earned 56 caps for the Finland national football team, making his debut in 1998 and retiring from international football in 2010.
RB- Ian Harte [Leeds United, Sunderland & Reading]
Apart from a season each with Reading and Sunderland, Harte spent all his Premier League career with Leeds United.He played for Leeds for nine seasons and was an integral part of their team and cult hero alongside his uncle Gary Kelly. In the 1999–2000 season he helped Leeds reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup, playing twelve games, scoring one goal. He then helped them reach the same stage of the UEFA Champions League in the 2000–01 season, playing 17 games and scoring three goals in the competition.
CB – Vincent Kompany [Manchester City]
Vincent Kompany has been central to Manchester City’s success for the past 10 years. He was an absolute bargain at around £6m (€7.6m). The Belgian was signed just before City were taken over in 2008 and has been so integral to the club’s recent successes he has become a genuine club legend. The thing with Kompany is that , he is either injured or World Class , there’s nothing in between.
CB – John Terry [Chelsea]
John Terry picked up 17 medals over 19 years for Chelsea, including five league titles and a Champions League. He was an ever present member of the Chelsea team over the past two decades. He was the backbone of their defence and was never afraid of putting his body on the line to block a shot.
LB – Leighton Baines [Wigan & Everton]
Since joining from Wigan, Baines has established himself as one of the best and most consistent left-backs in the Premier League, winning Everton’s Player’s Player of the Season award three times and Player of the Season twice, while being named in the PFA Team of the Year on a further two occasions. His attacking prowess always catches the eye but he is as equally reliable in defence.

CDM – Steven Gerrard [Liverpool]
RM – Cristiano Ronaldo [Manchester United]
Ronaldo joined United as an 18-year-old from Sporting Lisbon for £12.24m and left them six years later for a world record fee of £80m. In between he scored 84 times in 196 Premier League games and won the title three times. He also won a Ballon d’Or during his time with Man Utd.
CAM – Dennis Bergkamp [Arsenal]
Bergkamp redefined football in England’s top division. His textbook technique, physical prowess and second-nature for picking out the killer pass made him the ultimate symbol of football. When Arsenal usurped Manchester United as the country’s best team in 1998, Bergkamp, was unarguably the main reason behind it. Numbers alone will not convey his pioneering pedigree. For the record though, Bergkamp plundered 120 goals in his time with Arsenal, making him the 10th highest goalscorer in the club’s history; quite the achievement for a man who doesn’t do tap-ins.
LM – Matt Le Tissier [Southampton]
Le Tissier spent his entire professional club career with Southampton and won eight caps for the England national team ; his loyalty garnered special affection from Southampton’s fans who nicknamed him “Le God”. He was a creative attacking midfielder, with exceptional technical skills. Le Tissier is the second-highest ever scorer for Southampton behind Mick Channon and was the first midfielder to score 100 goals in the Premier League.

ST – Harry Kane [Spurs]

Before establishing himself in Tottenham’s first team, he spent time on loan in League One playing for Leyton Orient, in the Championship playing for Millwall and Leicester City and in the Premier League for Norwich City. He became a regular starter for Tottenham in the 2014–15 season, in which he scored 31 goals across the campaign, 21 of which in the league, and was named the PFA Young Player of the Year.
