It’s that time of the year when everyone goes crazy for Teams of the Season.
Monday Night Football supremos Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville got theirs out the way after Chelsea’s win against Watford, selecting a Premier League Team of the Season each.
Up first is Carra, who picked four players from Antonio Conte’s title winning side.
He also mirrored Conte’s 3-4-3 formation which has dominated the Premier League since the former Juventus manager made the tactical switch.
Then it was the turn of Neville, who went for a more traditional 4-4-2.
Danny Rose was included at the expense of David Silva, while Spurs’s Christian Eriksen replaced Kevin De Bruyne out wide.
No real complaints from us. Slightly harsh on the current Premier League Golden Boot leader Romelu Lukaku.
Carragher and Neville disagreed when it came to the Goal of the Season, picking Andy Carroll’s bicycle kick and Oliver Giroud’s scorpion kick respectively.
They also differed on the Manager of the Season, with Carra going for Conte and Neville going for Mauricio Pochettino.
In fact they couldn’t agree on anything. Player of the Season, Young Player of the Season and Signing of the Season all differed, as did the player to watch next season.
But that’s the glorious thing about football. It’s a game of opinions, and at the end of the day no one can be wrong.
Unless, of course, you’re going off the opinions of Paul Merson, in which case you should take everything with a pinch of salt.
