Henrikh Mkhitaryan's form since the start of the season, as well as Christian Eriksen's displays over the last year, would easily put them in contention for a place in anyone's Premier League team of the year.

As for the goalkeepers, David de Gea, Ederson and Hugo Lloris have all impressed.

But that's what Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher attempted to do for the Telegraph.

Left-back: Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)'I think he has been outstanding in the 12 months he has been here. "He has a superb defensive record with Chelsea and he scores goals".

Tottenham finished third in the Premier League during the 2015-16 campaign and second last season. "Alongside him, Belgium team-mate Vertonghen was not far behind".

Right-back: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)'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'.

Centre midfield: N'Golo Kante (Chelsea)'The defensive player in the middle.

After all, Leicester City won the Premier League title not so long ago without having a single world-class player in their squad at the time.

As they did last season, the Gunners find themselves in fifth place at the moment but the quartet of clubs that make up the rest of the "big six" along with the Manchester sides are all within two points of each other as the race for Champions League qualification looks set to go to the wire even at this early stage.

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

Former Lille star Hazard will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Crystal Palace in their next Premier League game at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

"It's not easy in the Premier League with competition from Romelu Lukaku, Alvaro Morata, Sergio Aguero, but I am going to go for Harry Kane", he wrote.
