We have not included the legends which we have not seen. Perhaps, there will be another list describing them. here we complete our best premier league xi.
Thierry Henry :
Declared by almost every panel as the best foreign player or striker that has ever played in England, Henry was a world known to create magic with Arsenal and also ending his career with Barcelona. He was a versatile striker and has been converted to play as a no 9 rather than his actual position of a left-winger. Though, he used to dribble as a winger and has scored many goals from that left area. Don’t forget the invincible. Also, he came back for one last season.

Most likely to be our pic as he should be regarded as one of the all-time greats. From midfield to attack there was not a single position where he hasn’t played. One of the reasons why Man U made it to three Ucl finals. our by far the best pick for best premier league xi.
5 Premier leagues,1 Fa cup, 3 EFL cups, 4 community shields, 1 champions league, 1 Europa League, 1 club world cup

Fifpro world xi, 2 epl golden boots, 2 pfa toty, Ucl final motm.

The man, the myth, the legend. He and Gerrard were the best duo possible in EPL at his time in Liverpool. A prolific finisher indeed. He failed to win anything with the reds though, coming close several times.
1 fa cup, 1Ucl and that semi-final goal against Barcelona, 1 Europa league. 2 pfa toty, fifpro world 11.
The hottest prospect right now, the most complete striker of his era, 4 consecutive 20 plus goals. Sadly spurs haven’t won anything yet.
PFA toty for 4 years in a row, 2 golden boots in EPL, England player of the year twice, world cup golden boot.
