Manchester City may be the runaway leader in the Premier League but none of their players have made the team so far based on fan match ratings.
After a remarkable run of 11 straight victories in the Premier League, Pep Guardiola’s side are 10 points behind Chelsea.
Supporters have been asked to rate 10 players after each league match this season, with the results now being integrated into a viable starting XI.
Players must have appeared in at least nine league games to qualify for the team and the mid-season results threw up some surprises.
City goalkeeper Ederson has 11 clean sheets this season, more than any other goalkeeper in the league, but Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale has lost his place.
Two Brighton players have appeared in the previous four, Tariq Lampte and Shane Duffy, Liverpool duo Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson.
In the midfield, West Ham’s Declan Rice and Chelsea’s N’Golo Conte have been joined by Conor Gallagher, who has dominated the loan from Stamford Bridge to Crystal Palace.
Mohamed Salah made a surprise cut after scoring 16 goals in 20 Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season.
He is joined by West Ham’s Michael Antonio and Chelsea forward Kai Havertz.
Neither Manchester United nor Tottenham have made the starting XI, but exceptional City players Reuben Dias, Joao Cansello and Bernardo Silva have no place in the squad.
