Shearer's team of the season so far: Forwards

10 Apr 2020

Find out who the Premier League Champion has selected alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in his 2019/20 side

Premier League Champion Alan Shearer is selecting his team of the season so far.

The competition's all-time leading goalscorer has opted for a 4-2-4 formation, finding room for four of this season's sharp shooters. 

Here are his chosen forwards:

FWD: Sadio Mane (LIV)

Mane has grown from strength to strength this season. His 14 Premier League goals have been worth 18 points to his team, more than any other player in the competition. Rapid, powerful and deadly in front of goal, the Senegalese has been unplayable at times this campaign.

FWD: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS)

With 17 Premier League goals, Aubameyang is just two behind top scorer Leicester's Jamie Vardy as he targets a second successive Golden Boot. The Gabon striker has pace to burn, brilliant movement and has scored consistently despite often being deployed out on the left.

FWD: Sergio Aguero (MCI)

Aguero scored in each of Manchester City's opening six matches and, in the 6-1 victory over Aston Villa in January, beat my own hat-trick record, with his 12th top-flight treble. With a goal every 88 minutes this has been the Argentinian’s most prolific campaign to date by that metric and he has now surpassed Thierry Henry to become the top-scoring overseas player in Premier League history. He remains simply sensational.

FWD: Jamie Vardy (LEI)

What a season. The league’s top scorer has netted 19 times and, at 33 years of age, is showing no signs of slowing down in a Leicester City team who play fast, attacking football. He scored in eight straight matches earlier in the season and needs just one more goal to become the 29th member of the Premier League's 100 Club.
