My Premier League Team Of The Season – 2012/13

The season is coming to an end and a lot of history being made, Lampard breaking Chelsea’s top-scorer record, Ferguson retire after winning Man United’s 20th league title, Wigan win the FA Cup in dramatic fashion and get relegated just 3 days after that win and a lot more, a lot of debuts, managers got sacked and manager got hired and for me there were 11 players that just stand out. This team is a 4-4-2 formation.

GK: Simon Mignolet – The Sunderland goalkeeper has kept 11 clean sheet thoughout the season and dealt with not a high-rated defence with the likes of Bramble, O’Shea & Cuellar Mignolet made some unbelievable performances and kept Sunderland in the top-flight for another season with his saves.

LB: Leighton Baines – Nobody else can slot into that position better than him this season, the England-intrenational hasnt missed 1 minute of playing time in the Premier Leauge, participating in all of Everton’s games, and he never put a bad performance, all of his performances were top-class and he went on and scored some magnificent goals with his Left-Foot shot. Baines was named in PFA’s Team Of  The Season.

CB: Ashley Williams – The Swansea captain, won the Capital One Cup and has been consistent in Swansea’s success story this season leading her to a top-10 spot, Williams has made 46 defensive blocks. More than any other player in the Premier League this season. Williams has been part of Swansea since 2008 and played has over 200 appearances under his belt.

CB: Jan Vertonghen – One of the Belgian revoloution that joined the Premier League this season, Jan Vertonghen adapted well to Premier League football in his first year in England. Vertonghen showed amazing skills in defence and even scored some cracking goals for the Spurs, he was named Premier League’s player of the month for March and was named in PFA’s Team Of  The Year.

RB: Pablo Zabaleta – Another player that was named in PFA’s Team Of The Year, He was the most consistent right back this season, and the best Manchester City player this season. As the 2011/12 Champions was well under expectations Pablo Zabaleta tried to keep City in the title picture and made Maicon (former European champion with Inter) on the bench.

CM: Marouane Fellaini – Thourgh his career at Everton Fellaini didn’t score much. But with Moyes had to put someone in the more attacking role Fellaini scored 11 goals and made his presence known in English football and now when Manchester United and Chelsea are in the picture for the Big Afro Belgian, Fellaini should have been one of the canindates for PFA’s player of the year.

CM: Juan Mata – What can we say about the Spanish midfielder? He have been in terrific form since he got to Chelsea from Valencia, he won twice Chelsea’s player of the season in his first 2 years at the Bridge, he won the Premier League Player of the Month award in October, and he is part of PFA’s Team Of The Season. The 25-year-old midfielder has 20 assists this season in the Premier League and have been inspirational for Chelsea goal-scoring department this season.

LM: Gareth Bale – He was outstanding and inspirational for Tottenham’s campaign trying to get to the Champions League. Although he didn’t start the season well Bale showed his class time and time again with his great pace & vision, he can play wide and in the center if needed. He won PFA player & young player of the year and of course named in the PFA’s Team Of The Season.

RM: Michu – Michu who already won the unofficial Bargain Of The Year, came for just 2 milion pounds to Swansea from Rayo Vallecano didn’t had to wait to get into Premier League football style, he has been in sensational form from the start of the season and played a huge part in Swansea’s success in the Capital One Cup and in the league.

ST: Christian Benteke – Another Belgian made it into the team, this time is from the bottom side Aston Villa. You can call him ‘The man that saved Villa’ he is undoubtedly one of the most amazing young stars in the Premier League, and if you get Messi and Ronaldo out of the equation Benteke scored the most goals in 2013!! His pace and strength is what makes him such a good poacher!

ST: Robin Van Persie – He had to be in this list, we had the man that saved Villa from relegation, now we have to man that gave United the title, scoring goals from every where the man that called by Arsenal fans “traitor” gave Sir Alex Ferguson a great ferawell gift for his retirement. Robin Van Persie scored 25 goals and saw him collecting the Premier League’s top-scorer for the second year in a row. But he had a drought that lasted for 9-10 games but he was able to get back on his form and maintain his level.
