Chelsea players dominate our Premier League Team of the Season, 2014-15

Updated: April 1, 2015

john-terry-1425370038With just eight games of a Premier League season dominated by Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea remaining we have a short breather with the international break ahead of the next round of fixtures on the 4th and 5th of April. Now seems a good time to look at the team of the season with the PFA awards which start the award season less than a month away.

Goalkeeper- David De Gea- Manchester United

24 year old David De has been the standout goalkeeper in his fourth season at Old Trafford. The Spaniard has had a truly outstanding season making world class saves almost on a weekly basis. He has made more saves than any other Premier League goalkeeper this season and has the highest save percentage of any Premier League keeper also. De Gea has started every game in every competition for his club and he has played a huge part in protecting a defence that at times has threatened to completely fall apart this season.

Others who have performed well include Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois who has had a fine first season in English football, Fraser Forster who has played a major part in Southampton’s outstanding defensive record and Hugo Lloris who has become consistently one of Europe’s best shot stoppers at Tottenham Hotspur.

Right Back- Branislav Ivanovic- Chelsea

Branislav Ivanovic has been at Chelsea for seven years and clocked up over 200 appearances for the Londoners. The 2014/15 season has undoubtedly been the Serbian’s best yet, playing almost exclusively at right back. Ivanovic, a former centre back, has the size and power you would expect of a central defender but has become better and better going forward which is almost 50% of the full backs’ role in the modern game; his defending has never been in doubt. Ivanovic like team-mate John Terry has always had a goal in him and his six goals this season further enhance his value.

Ivanovic’s closest competitor was Southampton’s Nathaniel Clyne. The 23 year old has had a prolific season as part of the Premier League’s meanest defence.
