Robben Lampard Makelele Gerrard
Heinze Terry Gallas Lauren
Undisputable. No words needed.
It is arguable that Man Utd's only 'success' this season is to finally find a regular left back ever since Dennis Irwin left in Gabriel Heinze. Silvestre, Fortune, O'Shea & P.Neville have all started, crashed & burned. Heinze is aggresive defensively, good off the ball and not so bad on the crosses either.
Stellar season by Terry who has succeded Desailly both as the rock and captain of the team. Was controversially given the PFA Player of the Year award but he was indeed very good. His offensive contribuition from the set pieces can't be ignored.
Fast, agile & versatile. Stastitics shows that when most of Chelsea's clean sheet in the EPL this season was earned when he partnered Terry when Carvalho was injured. If I'm not wrong, he played in most, if not all, of the record breaking clean sheet run.
Has improved tremendously compared to last season and sealed his place in the team.
Perhaps not the best choice since he was only available for only about half of the season but what impact he has made! He will play more defensively compared to his left forward role he usually occupies. But if I'm not wrong, Robben also played in the left midfield role when he was with PSV so there should be no problem with using him here.
Give him a red cape (and underwear ) and there you have it, England's Superman.
The ultimate ball-winner in the middle of the field. Hailed by Jose Mourinho as his player of the season, I see him like those guards in the country borders who will prevent anyone from passing the borderline unless they have permission.
Like Robben, he will play in a slightly different role. He will occupy the role that David Beckham made famous when he was in Man Utd. A right midfielder who works hard for the team. He also has the ability to deliver menacing crosses and cross-field passes to Robben or Henry on the left.
Top scorer for the umpteenth time. One of the world's best striker. Only God, and the English, know why wasn't he awarded with the PFA Player of the Year award.
To be honest, I have difficulties in finding Henry's partner since no striker has really shined this season. But I went for someone who will suit Henry's playing style and that is Defoe who is a 'fox in the box' that Henry has always crave for. Don't let Andy Johnson's number fool you, more than half of his goals are scored from the spot.
