Best Premier league XI ever (Wingers modern era)
We have finally come back to the midfielders, this time would be covering the wide midfielders or wingers. There will be players who have played as LM or RM who often go on to trace the ball back, do some defending as well. There could be free wingers too. Here is our list for the best premier league xi ever.
Ryan Giggs –
We will start with the most decorated footballer on the planet(34 trophies). Perhaps, the best Manchester United player or premier league player, in terms of his longevity(their most capped player). He was a perfect LM. Tracing ball back, wing attack, CAM role, he has done everything. He looks like a perfect fit for our LM position. He was an insane dribbler at left flank in his young days but, was also doing some defending, his famous slide tackles, getting the ball back at times, a complete player to be precise. Giggsy is football itself. Let’s see if he might win.

David Beckham –
Yeah, we have mentioned that we are not going to include players whom we haven’t seen playing, in fact, we have seen Beckham play for Milan and PSG. So, how could we miss the legendary RM, the cross master, free-kick specialist, style icon, David Beckham? best premier league xi ever right-winger?

Cristiano Ronaldo :
Yeah, he has to be there. He was not a typical RM as Beckham was, as no. 7 was given to him with those expectations. He went the other way, became a right-winger, a forward, and played everywhere in the attack. Arguably, the best player of all time, with 5 ballon d’Or to his name, was a lethal dribbler, skill master, who did rise to the top. best premier league xi ever left-winger?
3 Premier League titles, FA Cup, Champions league, club world cup, Fifa and Uefa club footballer of the year, PFA team of the year.Premier League golden boot, Puskas award, All 4 major PFA awards in a single season.
Eden Hazard :
A style similar to Ronaldo will see if he can transform like him. A speed dribbler, the playmaker, has got everything a winger needs. One of the modern-day greats.

Arjen Robben :
One of the best right wingers in history, it’s magic whenever he cuts from the wing into the box. Magical in his prime, just 4 years in the premier league, not a big contender. But, has won 2 titles and thus went to real Madrid and later to Bayern Munich. It was essential for his growth.
2 premier league titles, FA cup, PFA team of the year.
Samir Nasri :
In his prime, a joy to watch, one of the best French players in recent times. Heir to Zidane, but was a winger as well. Has been crucial for City’s golden era, was in PFA toty. He can play anywhere in midfield and attack.
2 premier league titles, PFA toty,French player of the year.
Gareth Bale –
Spurs always have had amazing talents, a golden boot winner, a guy who transformed himself from a full back to the pure winger. Hat trick at san Siro,4 champions league.A speedster, amazing left foot, good in the air. Injury-prone is the only drawback he ever had.
PFA team of the year, PFA player of the year, Uefa team of the year, PFA young player of the year, 6 times welsh player of the year.
