ENRG Sport’s Premier League Team of the Season

With the Premier League season coming to a close over the weekend, three of our football writers sat down and named their best XI for the 2020/21 campaign. Have a read at who Cameron Wanstall, Jack Donnelly and Struan Garvie picked.

The 2020/21 Premier League season was unique. Empty stadiums, pandemic postponements and a cowardly European Super League breakaway coincided with Manchester City’s title triumph, Liverpool’s sudden slump, and love for Leeds, Leicester and West Ham. Here, three of our ENRG Sport writers have made their team of the season selections from a campaign like no other. 

Cameron Wanstall’s Team

I understand it’s irregular to choose the goalkeeper of a gung-ho side with 54 goals conceded (7th worst in the division) but Illan Meslier is the reason that number isn’t higher. After a tough start to his debut Premier League season, conceding 4 to title holders Liverpool, the Frenchman quickly settled and was crucial in Leeds’ top half push.

The Premier League’s first goalkeeper born in the 21st century made 134 saves (4th) and had a save percentage of 75.1% (also 4th) – despite facing 177 shots, making Meslier the 3rd busiest keeper this season. He even became the first shot-stopper under 21 to keep eight clean sheets in a single Premier League season – perhaps just the first of many records the youngster will make in what could be a long, illustrious career in Yorkshire. 

RB: João Cancelo (Manchester City)

The only headache João Cancelo gives Pep Guardiola, and now (more importantly, of course) myself in selecting this side, is where to play him. He has played on both the left and the right side of Manchester City’s defence this season, while notably also slipping into a midfield role when City have possession of the ball. Cancelo only made 13 league starts in a frustrating debut season in Manchester but has quickly become a star of the title winning side of 2021. 

Among other full-backs in the league, Cancelo is in the top 95-plus percentile for just about every statistic known to man (or football nerds I suppose). Expected assists, completed passes, progressive passes, dribbles tackled, interceptions and even nutmegs because why the hell not. You name it, he’s up there. He is also fantastic at playing splitting through balls and is generating plenty of ‘pre-assists’ for City. More than a full-back, some might say. 

CB: Rúben Dias (Manchester City)

A Portuguese compatriot of Cancelo, Ruben Dias has also earned continual praise from just about everybody for helping anchor Manchester City’s defence and guide them to the Premier League title. Success in the league, as well as potentially the Champions League, largely comes down to their composed £60 million defender. Bargain.

Defensively solid and not one for making errors, Dias has also shone as a ball-playing centre-back. The just-turned 24-year-old has become the quintessential Pep Guardiola defender, as he is a league leader in short, medium and long successful passes and in progressive carries across Europe’s top five leagues. There’s certainly a feeling that Dias could dominate Premier League forwards for another decade yet. 

CB: Ben Godfrey (Everton)

Rúben Dias was an obvious no-brainer for one of two centre-back roles, but there were multiple others who earned the right to be here too. Craig Dawson, Ezri Konsa, John Stones and Lewis Dunk were unfortunate to miss out as Everton’s Ben Godfrey just sneaks into the XI.

Compared to the four contenders above; Godfrey leads in tackles won, successful pressures and interceptions, as well as blocks – for which he has the 2nd most in the entire division (85). The 23-year-old signed for the Blues from Norwich City in October and after a fine debut against rivals Liverpool, the versatile youngster has consistently impressed. 

LB: Andrew Robertson (Liverpool)

Despite a fairly underwhelming title defence, Andrew Robertson has remained consistent in Liverpool’s backline and is deserving of a spot in this team. (Photo Credit – John Powell via Getty Images)

This was a tight one. Manchester United’s sudden fan-favourite Luke Shaw is an obvious rival to Andrew Robertson here and both have had similar seasons. Both have grabbed one goal, a fair amount of assists (Robertson’s seven tops Shaw’s five) and have each remained consistently solid in defence, but the Glaswegian just edges it for me due to his importance in his own team. 

Replacing Shaw with Alex Telles certainly hampers Manchester United slightly, but replacing Robertson with anyone else is impossible – likely a reason why he started all 38 league games for Liverpool this season. Heightened expectations of Robertson and Liverpool’s frontline failing to convert chances has led to unwarranted criticisms of the Scotland captain, but he still finds a place in this team regardless. 

CM: N’golo Kanté (Chelsea)

Without their engine, Chelsea aren’t the same. The Blues’ last four games without him have resulted in defeat to Arsenal, a stalemate with Brighton, humiliation from West Brom and a final day loss to Aston Villa. The lovable Frenchman has found his form after a tough time with injuries last season and is thriving under Thomas Tuchel’s management. 

He has an excellent 76.3% dribble success rate in the league to go with his incredible 2.39 tackles won, 2.6 blocks and 2.6 interceptions per 90 – all of which are in the top 3 percent for midfielders in the Premier League. Even in his thirties, Kanté will still be tormenting opposition attackers for the foreseeable future as long as the worst of his injury scares are over. 

CM: Tomáš Souček (West Ham United) 

I know, no Kevin de Bruyne or Ilkay Gündogan. I can hear the mob with pitchforks and torches coming already. I would care but Tomáš Souček, in his first full season in England, has been incredible. The towering Czech, signed permanently from Slavia Prague in the summer, has been dominating rival defences and attacks all season long. He started all 38 games in the Premier League for West Ham (only missing one minute of action), scored 10 goals and, obviously, had the most aerial successes in the division (228). 

It isn’t just goals and headers that have defined Souček’s season, however. He is also calm under pressure when in possession of the ball and a handy defensive option; especially when it comes to blocking, clearing and marking at set pieces. He’s made London Stadium his home this past year but if he can similarly dominate England, Scotland and Croatia on the international stage at the Euros, there may be suitors for the lofty midfielder come pre-season. 

CAM: Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)

The only undeniable midfield pick is reserved for Manchester United’s talisman, Bruno Fernandes. Frankly, the Portuguese attacking midfielder has been incredible. There will always be the expected baseless ‘stat pads with penalties’ argument but even without confidently dispatching nine Premier League penalties this season, Fernandes would still have nine non-penalty goals to his name, as well as 12 assists.

Fernandes has excelled under the pressure placed upon him after an inspired end to last season after joining the Red Devils from Sporting CP. He’s carried his terrific form into this season and, his goals and assists tallies aside, has impressed with his passing in general and his solid defensive contributions. The ‘Penandes’ moniker is an insult to the designated captain of this side and I am sure United fans will get the last laugh when he fires a record 30 penalties on route to a Premier League title soon enough. 

RW: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

Honestly, he was the only candidate for the right winger position. Liverpool could have been relegated and Mohamed Salah would still have played well enough to get into this side. The bitter disappointment, or hilarity if you support anybody else, of Liverpool’s lack of a title defence has put a dampener on their players’ seasons but, like Robertson, Salah has still had a very strong season. 

The Egyptian superstar grabbed 22 goals, being pipped to the Golden Boot by a solitary strike, and five assists as he played a crucial role in reviving Liverpool’s crumbling season and shooting them up to Champions League qualification. There has been no drop off compared to previous seasons either. In fact, his defensive work and passing has steadily improved and he found the net three more times than he did in last season’s title winning campaign.

LW: Heung-Min Son (Tottenham Hotspur)

It’s a shame to gloss over the outstanding seasons of Harvey Barnes, Jack Grealish and Marcus Rashford here, but this spot has to go to Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son. The South Korean celebrity has formed a formidable, record-breaking partnership with Harry Kane despite this Spurs team being rather… grim.

Son has smashed in 17 goals in the league this season, while also setting up 10 for his teammates – mostly for Kane, obviously. A staggering start to the season which included eight goals in the opening six games – including four against Southampton and two past Manchester United – was followed up with consistent quality despite Spurs’ ensuing struggles. Thankfully for Son, he didn’t have to suffer alone…

ST: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

This position isn’t up for debate. Harry Kane’s competition either had dips in form (Calvert-Lewin, Vardy), short purple patches (Bamford, Iheanacho) or injury problems (Ings, Wilson). Yet, you can’t help feeling that even if these men didn’t let standards drop, kept their good luck all season long or stayed injury free, they still wouldn’t have come close to Spurs’ wantaway man. 

The reports that the England captain wants to leave Spurs is no surprise to anyone. In keeping with his previous Premier League campaigns, Kane scored 23 goals and grabbed 14 assists – the latter statistic showing off a new dimension to his game – in the league this season. Put simply, he is a class above Tottenham and without him, there would be no North London clubs in Europe next season. It’s unlikely he’ll hang about to find out if the Europa Conference League is a trophy worth winning.

Jack Donnelly’s Team

GK: Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa)

In my eyes, there haven’t been a number of standout goalkeepers in the Premier League this season – sure, Ederson and Edouard Mendy have plenty of clean sheets, but can you recall a truly unbelievable performance from either stopper? That’s why I’m going for Emi Martinez at Aston Villa.

The Argentine signed for Villa over the summer, and his performances this season will have everyone at Arsenal regretting their decision to let him go. His sharp reflexes have often been called into action, with Villa conceding plenty of shots, giving Martinez plenty of opportunities to showcase his talents as a top Premier League keeper. With 15 clean sheets (3rd) and 142 saves (3rd), his debut season will be remembered fondly in Birmingham.

RB: João Cancelo (Manchester City)

After playing a bit-part role in last season’s squad, João Cancelo has been an ever-present presence in Pep Guardiola’s title-winning side on either side of City’s defence. (Photo Credit – Clive Brunskill via Getty Images)

Full-backs have always been contentious in Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City sides, but when João Cancelo signed from Juventus in a swap deal for Danilo, it seemed as though the Spaniard might have locked down his right-back. That was until he appeared a mere 13 times in his maiden season. Fast forward to this season however, and whether it’s on the left or right, it would be hard to remove the Portuguese international for any other full back in world football.

Considering how often Guardiola likes to chop and change his defence, Cancelo’s consistent presence is something to be admired. His attacking pedigree has stood out; 1.4 shots-per-90 game and an 85.7% pass completion rate have proven him to be a consistent thorn in the side of the league’s hardiest backlines. His speed makes him a good match for the Premier League’s fastest forwards, with his technical ability instilling fear into his opposite number when he goes marauding up the flanks. A standout in Guardiola’s back line for sure, but maybe not as much as this next selection…

CB: Rúben Dias (Manchester City)

Last season, after Vincent Kompany’s departure, City lacked both leadership and solidity at the back, which played no small part in the Manchester club’s fairly meek title defence. Guardiola identified this and brought in Benfica’s Rúben Dias for a cool £60 million. Considering how rock-solid Dias has been, Guardiola would have paid twice that much for the 23-year-old.

In my opinion, Dias’ presence in this City team is very similar to that of Virgil van Dijk at Liverpool – he was brought into a leaky, inconsistent defence and has gone on to prove himself as one of the finest defenders in Europe. Dias is confident and composed on the ball – a must for a Guardiola centre-back – and holds a strong aerial presence. The Portuguese defender has hardly put a foot wrong since arriving in England and was named as the FWA Footballer of the Year, as well as City’s own Player of the Season. The Manchester club were great across the board this season, but much of their success can be attributed to Dias.

CB: Craig Dawson (West Ham)

At the beginning of the season, never did I once envision that West Ham United would be making a serious charge towards the Champions League places, and that Craig Dawson would be marshalling the side from the heart of defence. However, the 2020/21 season has loved throwing the most unexpected scenarios at fans, and here we are.

Dawson has been immense for the Hammers. The 31-year-old is no stranger to dealing with some of Europe’s best attackers during his lengthy career in the top-flight, and his 73% tackle success rate suggests he’s dealing with the elite rather comfortably. Dawson has also been excellent in the air – he’s won 70% of his aerial duels, and two of his three goals have been headed in. An old-fashioned English centre back (very fitting of West Ham), Dawson has complimented Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna very nicely indeed, and has led West Ham back to the glories of European football.

LB: Luke Shaw (Manchester United)

Luke Shaw has had a career full of doubters. It may not have been the same had he not been on the receiving end of a tackle from PSV’s Héctor Moreno that broke his leg in two places back in 2015. Since then, Shaw has had various injury struggles and performances left fans unconvinced, but this season has allowed the full-back to prove his doubters wrong.

Shaw, who himself has admitted that this has been his best season, has been able to firmly lock down his position as first-choice left-back, well ahead of summer signing Alex Telles. This season, Shaw has registered five assists and scored an important goal in the last Manchester Derby in a 2-0 win – only his second in nearly 200 Premier League appearances. Re-establishing himself in the England setup has been a testament to his efforts this season, which could see him play in – and potentially win – his first cup final with the Europa League.

CM: Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City)

It seems as though a Kevin de Bruyne inclusion in a Premier League Team of the Season is an annual inevitability, but this shouldn’t detract from the fact that the Belgian playmaker has – once again – proved himself to be one of the finest midfielders in world football this season.

Granted, KDB’s stats haven’t matched up to those of season 2019/20, in which he had one of the greatest individual campaigns in Premier League history, but he’s so much more than a numbers player. His range of passing, athleticism and eye for goal are all well documented, but his defensive contributions tend to be overlooked – having a 62% tackle success rate as an attacking midfielder is no small feat. With the Belgian extending his contract with City until 2025, Premier League fans are not going to be devoid of KDB’s quality any time soon.

CM: Mason Mount (Chelsea)

Mason Mount’s transformation from “Frank Lampard’s son” into a genuinely excellent midfielder has been nothing short of fantastic. The England international has forced all of his doubters and nay-sayers to swallow their pride and admit that he has bags of quality – anyone who’s seen much of Chelsea over the past two seasons would have been able to tell you as much anyway.

Mount has turned plenty of heads this season. His energy and work rate in Chelsea’s midfield often provide a much-needed lift when his teammates look beleaguered, while his flexibility to play in a number of different positions has made him a must-start for Thomas Tuchel. Having donned the captain’s armband a few times already this season, this season could be the springboard into a glittering career for the 22-year-old.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)

Bruno Fernandes hasn’t taken his foot off the gas one bit. Having joined Manchester United in the January of 2020, he completely transformed their season and secured them Champions League football when it looked unlikely. A year later, Fernandes is well regarded as an elite playmaker and has led United to a second-place finish and a Europa League final.

The Portuguese international has netted 18 times this season, with nine coming in the form of a trademark penalty, while also laying on 12 assists for the likes of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood to feast on. Fernandes’ ability on the ball and intelligence have played a crucial role in pushing United to one of their best season’s in recent memory, and if history were to repeat itself, the playmaker could be leading The Red Devils to consistent silverware very soon. Not bad for a penalty merchant…

RW: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

It’s been a fairly tame title defence from Liverpool this season, with a number of shock results and an unfortunate bounty of injuries making it very tough for The Reds to build up any sort of momentum. Amongst all the inconsistencies, however, Mohamed Salah has been his usual self, and that more than qualifies him for a place in this team.

The Egyptian has scored 22 times in 37 matches, while also chipping in with five assists, which, considering Liverpool’s misfiring front line, is to be expected. Scoring 22 goals from a wide position is still massively impressive from Salah, and had he not been at such a consistently elite level, Liverpool’s title defence would have been even worse than it already has been.

LW: Heung-Min Son (Tottenham Hotspur)

It’s not been a brilliant season for wingers in the Premier League, but even if it had been, Heung-Min Son would take his place in this team without much competition. It feels slightly harsh to leave Jack Grealish out, but having sustained a shin injury back in February, Grealish missed the majority of the back end of the season. As a result, Son has stood head and shoulders above the rest.

Having struck up an almost telepathic understanding with Harry Kane, Son has contributed 17 goals and 10 assists to Spurs’ league campaign, with his best moment coming in a 5-2 victory over Southampton, in which he scored four. One of the most likeable players in the league, it’s a shame that Spurs’ league position does little to reflect Son’s contributions – without him, they’d be much worse off.

ST: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

This was, perhaps, the easiest pick for this team. We’ve seen a lot of strikers perform well throughout the course of the season – Dominic Calver-Lewin started the campaign like a man possessed, while Kelechi Iheanacho has had an excellent run-in. But Harry Kane has taken his game to another level this season.

In what could be his final season at Spurs, Kane not only won the Golden Boot with 23 goals, but also won the Playmaker Award, providing 14 assists for his teammates – most frequently, Heung-min Son. In terms of goalscoring, there was never any doubt about his ferocious quality, but having added assists to his game this season, Kane could easily be named as Player of the Season. With Spurs set to play European Conference League football next season, the summer ahead will be very interesting indeed for Kane…

Struan Garvie’s Team

GK: Sam Johnstone (West Bromwich Albion)

I am going to start my team out with a bold claim. Although Sam Johnstone was part of a West Brom team that were relegated, he was one of their standout players this season. Throughout the season, Johnstone was a saviour for The Baggies, most notably in the side’s 1-1 draws against Manchester City, Manchester United, and Liverpool. His heroic last-minute saves against the likes of Harry Maguire also spring to mind.

Although Johnstone has not kept the most clean sheets this season, he has made more saves than any other keeper in the division with 166. As the saying goes: “A top-class keeper will win you 12 points a season.” Safe to say Johnstone has delivered. Perhaps the highlight of Johnstone’s season was getting a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad midway through the season. With the recent injury to Nick Pope, there may now be a chance that we see Johnstone at the Euros this summer.  

RB: João Cancelo (Manchester City)

Last season, João Cancelo was considered a waste of £65 million after being nothing more than Kyle Walker’s backup. This season, however, he has become Manchester City’s best right-back AND left-back.

Cancelo has had an excellent season and is now one of the most important players in a Manchester City side who have run away with the league. Over the past five or six seasons, Kyle Walker has been one of the most consistent right-backs in the league – it is a real credit to Cancelo that he has now taken that spot. 

CB: Rúben Dias (Manchester City)

Another Manchester City defender on the list, this time it is Rúben Dias. The Portuguese international signed for City in the summer of 2020 for a reported £60 million. Although Pep Guardiola’s track record with signing centre-backs is not the best, Dias has certainly been an excellent acquisition for his side.

Dias has been nothing short of phenomenal this season and a real rock at the back for City. Not only has Dias himself been very impressive, but he has also made those around him, such as John Stones and Aymeric Laporte, better. Manchester City have kept the most clean sheets in the division this year, won the league, and have a very good chance of winning the UEFA Champions League, with Dias being one of the main reasons for this. Dias has been named by many as not only the best signing of the season, but also the best player of the season – and for good reason.

CB: Harry Maguire (Manchester United)

Before his injury against Aston Villa, Harry Maguire had played every minute of Premier League action for Manchester United and in doing so was one of the most consistent and reliable players in their squad. Although Maguire is still far from being the £80 million centre-back the price tag may suggest, he is undoubtedly one of the top defenders in the Premier League.

Maguire’s presence in both boxes has been invaluable to United all season, his ability to carry the ball from defence into midfield (and consequently the attack) has also been of huge significance in the way United have played this past season. Not only have Maguire’s performances on the pitch been solid, but his leadership of United has also been very impressive. Perhaps what highlighted Maguire’s importance more than anything was the fact that United conceded eight goals in their final four league games without him.

LB: Luke Shaw (Manchester United)

For me, Luke Shaw is one of the feel-good stories of the season. After arriving at United with so much potential, the young full-back suffered a horrific leg break in 2015 that kept him out of action for a long time. In recent years, he has struggled to sustain momentum due to other recurring injuries. In the summer his United career even came into question after The Red Devils signed Alex Telles from Porto. Despite all of this, Luke Shaw has had an outstanding season.

He is now a mainstay in this current United squad and one of their most important players. This has been shown in the fact that Shaw now takes a lot of set-pieces for the team. Shaw has been not only solid defensively but has been a real threat going forward and has created an incredible partnership with Marcus Rashford down United’s left-hand side. Interestingly, no defender created more chances this season than the United left-back. After such a strong season, Shaw was also re-called up to the England squad ahead of the Euros with many believing he is the nation’s best in that position. Still only 25 years old, Shaw has finally become the full-back United thought they had signed back in 2014.

CM: Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City)

Although it has not been the most impressive season by his incredible standards, Kevin De Bruyne has still enjoyed a fantastic campaign with City. De Bruyne has, once again, been incredibly important this season for City, often playing as a false-nine due to City’s top goalscorer of all time, Sergio Agüero, battling injury for much of the season. Once again, De Bruyne is one of the top assisting players in the league and has also scored some very important goals himself.

Also, this season, De Bruyne has taken on a new role of being the club’s captain in the absence of Fernandinho. The extra responsibility has not fazed de Bruyne at all, as he had yet another phenomenal season and added a third Premier League title to his growing collection.

CM: Ilkay Gündogan (Manchester City)

No striker? No problem. Amazingly, with all the firepower and talent in the Manchester City squad, it is the central midfielder Ilkay Gündogan who was the club’s top scorer in the Premier League. His late runs into the box have become of real importance for City and one of their biggest threats over a 90-minute match.

Gündogan’s City career has been riddled with injuries, meaning the German international has often struggled to break into City’s strong midfield. This season, however, he has played his way into the first team and is now one of the first names on the team sheet. Gündogan has had such an impressive season, that many have compared him to Frank Lampard due to his threat in the opposition box.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)

For me, Bruno Fernandes has had the best season of any player in the Premier League. Reaching double figures in both goals and assists is a very impressive feat for a midfielder. Despite only being at Manchester United for just over a year, Fernandes has become arguably the side’s most important player. Not only has he had an incredible season in the attack, but his work rate has also been sensational. This is highlighted by the fact that he has played nearly every minute of Premier League football since he arrived in England.

Not only can he pick a pass when it matters, but he has also delivered incredibly important goals over the season – albeit a few from the penalty spot. Fernandes has not only delivered on the pitch, but he has had a clear influence inside the dressing room with many describing him as one of the leaders at the club and following the injury to Maguire, Fernandes was given the captain’s armband. In my eyes, given how much of an impact he has had on his side and how well he has played in his first full season in England, he deserves to be called the Player of the Season.

RW: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

Although Liverpool – by their recent standards – have not had a great season, Mohamed Salah has enjoyed a strong individual campaign. He has stepped up when others around him have failed to make an impact. For the fourth season in a row, he has scored over 18 Premier League goals and was once again fighting for the Golden Boot – coming second to Harry Kane in the end.

What Salah has proved this season is that he is consistently able to have impressive scoring campaigns, as well as being a vital asset for his teammates. Once deemed a ‘one season wonder’, by many, Salah has proved that he is still one of the best players on the planet and a Premier League great. Not only has Salah been an impressive scorer this season, but he has also provided an assist for some vital goals, most notably against Crystal Palace on the last day of the season to earn his side third place.

LW: Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)

Most people will recognise Marcus Rashford as the footballer who took on the government and won, but aside from the outstanding humanitarian work, the Manchester United winger has enjoyed a very strong campaign and has been a vital asset for his side all season long.

His partnerships with Shaw and Fernandes have been clear for everyone to see, as the three have combined many times to provide goals. Despite having a few injury issues, Rashford has still made himself available to his side and featured in almost every Premier League game this season – playing in 37 out of 38 league games. Despite only turning 23 in October, Rashford has shown a lot of maturity on and off the pitch, with many believing he will become United’s captain in the future.

ST: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

To score the most goals in a single Premier League season is impressive. To provide the most assists in a single Premier League season is impressive. Harry Kane managed to do both.

Kane has shown this season that he is far more than just a goal scorer by proving some wonderful passes and assists throughout the campaign. Kane’s finishing is second to none and now seems to be the outright best striker in the Premier League. Despite Spurs’ form wavering throughout the season, Kane stayed consistent all season and will be heading into the Euros full of confidence. He may also be looking for a move out of North London if recent reports are to be believed.
