After a breathtaking 2023/24 Premier League campaign, Alan Shearer has selected his Team of the Season.

The Premier League Hall of Fame inductee and record goalscorer has revealed who he considers to be the most influential players of the campaign.

Three players have been picked from champions Manchester City, while runners-up Arsenal - who had the best defensive record in the competition - boast five players. Stars from three other teams also feature in this outstanding XI.


Jordan Pickford (Everton)
"Pushed David Raya all the way as he finished runner-up in the battle to win the Golden Glove, keeping 13 clean sheets. Ever-present in goal, Pickford was a hero on numerous occasions, making stunning saves to earn important points."

Ben White (Arsenal)
"He probably didn't imagine at the start of the season that he would end up playing as an inverted full-back, but he took on that role brilliantly and got into dangerous areas with well-timed runs, alongside his defensive duties."

William Saliba (Arsenal)
"A rock at the heart of the meanest Premier League defence this season. Arsenal only conceded 29 goals and kept 18 clean sheets, and the Frenchman was a key reason why."

Gabriel (Arsenal)
"His partnership with Saliba has got better and better, and Gabriel was a big threat from set-pieces too, scoring four goals.”

Declan Rice (Arsenal)
"Slotted into Arsenal's midfield as if he had played there all his life. He did everything. He protected the backline brilliantly while also getting forward to score seven goals and set up another eight."

Rodri (Man City)
“Like Rice, it's easy to focus on his ball-winning abilities, but the Spaniard also scored eight goals and assisted nine. He stepped up in big moments, including his goal on the final day of the season."

Cole Palmer (Chelsea)
"An unbelievable talent. What a first season he's had at Chelsea. His 34 goal involvements, including 22 goals, helped turn a Chelsea season that looked to be going nowhere into a top-six finish and Europe."

Martin Odegaard (Arsenal)
"Led by example. The captain either scored or assisted 18 goals as Mikel Arteta's men pushed Man City to the final day in the title race.”

Phil Foden (Man City)
"What a talent. Magnificent. At times he was unplayable, and he's deservedly been named the Player of the Season. Six Premier League titles at the age of 23, wow!"

Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa)
"He proved what a great all-round striker he is by combining the fourth-most goals with the most assists in the league. It'll be great to see what he can do in the Champions League next season."

Erling Haaland (Man City)
"He had to overcome a couple of injuries and wasn't always at his best, but he still got five more goals than anyone else! In fact he scored 27 goals in 31 appearances. Incredible."

Manager: Pep Guardiola (Man City)
"It really couldn't be anyone else, could it? He knows how to get the very best out of his players, every week, every season. Four consecutive Premier League titles is testament to that."
