We now have a rather vast football-shaped hole in our lives after the culmination to the Premier League season on Sunday..
Because this summer, given the lack of a major tournament, is a little different to last year.
Chelsea are champions, Tottenham ‘applied the pressure’ once again but fell short and Hull, Middlesbrough and Sunderland are all saying goodbye to the top flight.
But which players have been the most consistent across the board – both domestically and in Europe – to make our Dream Team XI of the season based on points scored?
*DRUM ROLL PLEASE*
And here it is…
Hugo Lloris (135 points) was by far and away the highest scoring goalkeeper on the game this season, with Tottenham keeping a massive 17 clean sheets and conceding just 24 goals in 36 Premier League games so far.
There’s a distinct Chelsea feel about the defensive line, with half of the back four all key members of Antonio Conte’s title-winning machine.
Cesar Azpilicueta (189) and Gary Cahill (179) were both regular fixtures after the switch to 3-4-3 in October, with the latter also excellent at the other end too.
Jan Vertonghen (172), who has been nominated for Premier League Player of the Season, is Spurs’ sole representative while Nicolas Otamendi (174) proved he’s a WhoScored algorithm favourite again by making up the defensive line.
A midfield three to send shivers down the spine of any opposing side also has a nice balance to it.
Paul Pogba (228) has been criticised by some for his displays in his first season back in England but WhoScored’s system has clearly recognised just how good he’s actually been.
Christian Eriksen (251) has been nothing short of sensational in 2017 while Eden Hazard (249) had an almost immediate return to the form we all know he’s capable of after a torrid season last term.
Alexis Sanchez (340) has 30 goals and 13 assists in all competitions, became the first player to get double figures for both goals and assists in the Premier League and finished the season as Dream Team’s top points scorer by some distance.
He’s joined by Harry Kane (305), who finished the season with back-to-back hat-tricks to win the Golden Boot, and Sergio Aguero (307) who racked up 69 points in his first five games of the campaign alone.
Can’t wait for next season? Here’s everything you need to know about the Dream Team game – which will be back and better than ever in 2017/18.
