We're now beyond the halfway point in this season's edition of the Premier League, and to say that things are beginning to hot up is a huge understatement. After Liverpool's 1-1 draw with West Ham on Monday night, just three points separate the Reds with second-placed Manchester City, who themselves are just two points in front of Mauricio Pochettino's chasing Tottenham.
Just like every season, there have been some extremely memorable performances from individual players this time out, with some of the league's more lesser-known names frequently stealing the headlines on a Saturday afternoon. This gave us an idea, why not create a 'squad of the year so far', so that's exactly what we did. Below you will find an 18-man squad including players we deem to have been the standout performers in the Premier League this season.
A maximum of one player from each side can feature in this makeshift squad of endless talent, and we've opted to go with an outside-the-box 3-4-3 attack-minded formation to really accommodate our desired selections.
