Jamie Carragher's Premier League XI from the season so far

Jamie Carragher's Premier League XI from the season so far

Manchester United were famous for scoring in "Fergie Time" but Arsenal have averaged more late goals per season in the Premier League than the Red Devils.

Carragher selected his team of the year for his column in The Daily Telegraph, and it is dominated by Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

The likes of Romelu Lukaku (7), Sergio Aguero (6), Alvaro Morata (6) and Harry Kane (6) are already firing their club towards the summit of the league, while the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mohamed Salah are looking impressive in midfield.

Manchester United's David de Gea is Carragher's first pick, with the former England star saying he is "the best keeper in the world at the moment".

"Alderweireld last season was the outstanding centre-back".

Elsewhere, Manchester City will be looking to keep their fine run going as they host Stoke while Crystal Palace go in search of their first goal, never mind point, of the season when they host Chelsea. "I don't think it will diminish at all".

"Alongside him his mate wasn't far behind him, Vertonghen".

Finally, Jefferies Group LLC reaffirmed a "buy" rating on shares of Bank of America Corporation in a report on Friday, July 7th. It is negative, as 79 investors sold BAC shares while 543 reduced holdings. 120 funds opened positions while 577 raised stakes.

I'm going to go with someone who doesn't really play at right-back because his Chelsea team play a slightly different system with three at the back, but Azpilicueta has to go in there as he is one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

"The defensive player in the middle".

"The standout player at the start of this season".

If we were to continue our run up until the new year we would no doubt put a dent in the lead the top two now hold over us, and I would be tempted by the odds on offer to be top come Christmas Day, and if (that's a big if) we manage to get through the season without our usual build up of injured stars at a crucial point in the campaign, then we may even be close to the top come July.

Tottenham have some wonderful players, such as Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris, and the fans will certainly expect the team to challenge for the league title this season.
