Premier League Champion Alan Shearer is selecting his team of the season so far.
The competition's all-time leading goalscorer reveals the players he has chosen in his two-man midfield.
Hugely important to Liverpool. A tireless worker with superb ball-winning skills, Henderson helps shield the defence when the full-backs go flying forward. What really stands out are his leadership skills. He drives his team on with his energy and has upped his attacking contribution too, with three goals and five assists.
Another wonderful season from the brilliant Belgian. De Bruyne is the first player in Premier League history to provide at least 15 assists in three different campaigns and is now just four off Thierry Henry's single-season record of 20. He has already equalled his best goal return for a season, with eight, and is just about the only player exempt from Pep Guardiola's rotation policy. How can I leave him out if Pep doesn't?
