Liverpool stars fill Shearer team of the season as other top 6 stars snubbed


Four Liverpool stars made their way into Alan Shearer’s team of the season thus far, but only two other players from members of the traditional top six made it into his hypothetical eleven.

As we’re almost a third of the way into the season, the dust has settled and hypothetical elevens have begun to be selected.

All-time Premier League record goal scorer Alan Shearer was the latest to dabble in the fantasy selections (via the Metro), with a quartet of table-topping Liverpool stars predictably drafted in.

Full-back duo Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson occupy the right back and left back positions in the Geordie legend’s team, with fellow Anfield stars Fabinho and Sadio Mane keeping them company.

The most surprising aspect of his selections, however, is that just two other names from the league’s traditional top six have made the cut.

Man City’s midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne and Chelsea revelation Tammy Abraham were both selected, meaning no players from Tottenham, Arsenal or Man Utd were included.

High-flying Leicester were rewarded for their stellar start with three inclusions through the spine of the team, with Caglar Soyuncu, James Maddison and the resurgent Jamie Vardy all receiving recognition.



Newly-promoted Sheffield United were acknowledged for their rock-solid defensive efforts, with goalkeeper Dean Henderson and John Egan included to round out the eleven.

Shearer’s team of the season so far: Henderson (SU), Alexander-Arnold (Liv), Egan (SU), Soyuncu (Lei), Robertson (Liv), Fabinho (Liv), De Bruyne (MC), Maddison (Lei), Mane (Liv), Abraham (Che), Vardy (Lei).

Meanwhile, further startling details have been revealed on just how closer Jurgen Klopp came to becoming Man Utd manager.
