Carragher and Henry pick their Premier League Team of the Year

Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry put together their Premier League Team of the Season so far on Monday Night Football.

After 17 matches, the former Liverpool defender and Arsenal legend decided on seven positions but could not come together to select the final four players, which was then put to a vote on Twitter.

The commentators were unable to agree on a goalkeeper, a central defender, central midfielder and an attacking midfielder which were then selected by fans to create an XI.

Stoke City's Jack Butland grabbed the keeping spot, Manchester United's Chris Smalling was named at centre-back, Everton's Ross Barkley landed a central midfield role and Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez was in an attacking midfield position.

Carragher and Henry had named Arsenal youngster Hector Bellerin at right-back, Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld in central defence and Gunners star Nacho Monreal at left-back.

Their central midfield had Leicester surprise packet N'Golo Kante playing behind his Foxes teammate Riyad Mahrez with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil in an attacking midfield role while leading scorer Jamie Vardy was up front.
