Midlands Premier League Team of the Season, including Benteke and Cambiasso

Stoke City Britannia Stadium

Are these the star performers from West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa, Stoke City and Leicester City throughout the 2014/15 Premier League campaign?

Goalkeeper: Ben Foster – Despite missing the last six weeks of the season through injury, West Bromwich Albion’s Ben Foster had a wonderful campaign between the sticks at The Hawthorns.

He kept a total of 11 clean sheets, and his 34 goals conceded in 28 games was the best goals against ratio per Premier League fixture of the Midlands’ number ones.

Right-back: Craig Dawson – The 25-year-old had a superb campaign for the Baggies, appearing in 29 top-flight encounters and averaging a club-high 6.4 effective clearances per match.

Centre-back: Ryan Shawcross – The one-cap England international was an influential figure for Stoke City as the Potters defended brilliantly and posted their best ever Premier League points return.

Centre-back: Joleon Lescott – The former Manchester City star has proved his worth for Tony Pulis’s men this season, showing his experience and possessing a calm assurance at the back.

Left-back: Jeffrey Schlupp – While playing more of a wingback/winger role this season, Schlupp has also been excellent defensively for Leicester City averaging 2.5 tackles per game.

The 22-year-old has a bright future ahead of him, and he’ll be looking at scoring more than the three goals he got this season for the Foxes in the ensuing campaign.

Defensive midfield: Esteban Cambiasso – The Argentine legend has been a wonderful acquisition for Nigel Pearson’s men and showed his immense quality towards the end of the campaign.

The former Inter Milan star started 27 Premier League games, and surprisingly found the net on five occasions.

Central midfield: Fabian Delph – While he may have had a slow start to the campaign, Delph’s performances in 2015 have been as good as any other midfielder in the Premier League.

The England international has unbelievable quality, and this weekend he will lead Aston Villa at Wembley as they take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final.

Central midfield: Steven N’Zonzi – The French midfielder has been an absolute rock at the Britannia Stadium, starting all 38 Premier League matches and defining the common term box-to-box.

Striker: Jamie Vardy – The Leicester man was playing non-league football not too long ago, now he’s on the verge of international recognition with England having been drafted into Roy Hodgson's latest squad.

With five goals and eight assists in 26 starts, Vardy has been one of the Premier League’s real success stories and his performance in the thrilling 5-3 win over Manchester United will long be remembered.

Striker: Christian Benteke – What can you say about Belgium’s all-time Premier League top scorer? Under Villa’s new boss Tim Sherwood, there hasn’t been a better striker in the league.

The former Genk man has scored 13 goals altogether, and reports of strong interest from Liverpool - per the Daily Star - are hardly surprising given his success over the past eight weeks.

Striker: Saido Berahino – If it wasn’t for Ben Foster and Saido Berahino, the Baggies could have found themselves among the relegation candidates rather than in a comfortable 13th position.

The 21-year-old notched 14 goals for the season, ten more than the Baggies’ next highest marksman. If he’s sold this summer, Tony Pulis has a massive job on his hands in replacing him.

Substitutes: Asmir Bergovic, Wes Morgan, Chris Brunt, Ciaran Clark, James Morrison, Jonathan Walters, Mame Biram Diouf.
