Robbie Savage picks two Tottenham stars in his team of the year

Robbie Savage

The pundit has praised some of Tottenham Hotspur's first team as part of his 2015 review.

Robbie Savage has picked two Tottenham players in his Premier League team of the year for 2015, according to his regular column in the Daily Mirror.

Indeed, alongside Jamie Vardy up front, Savage has chosen Harry Kane, while Toby Alderweireld has been included in defence for his form both at White Hart Lane and previously at Southampton.

Completing the rest of the side were Stoke City and Crystal Palace players, with a further duo from Leicester, as well as one Chelsea and two Arsenal players.

Savage's Mirror team of the year is: "Jack Butland (Stoke), Toby Alderweireld (Southampton/Tottenham), Scott Dann (Crystal Palace), Robert Huth (Leicester), Nacho Monreal (Arsenal), Santi Cazorla (Arsenal), Riyad Mahrez (Leicester), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Jamie Vardy (Leicester), Harry Kane (Tottenham)."

Meanwhile, Savage also picked Dele Alli out as his young player of the year.

A number of Spurs stars could be candidates when it comes to a team of 2015. Eric Dier did well but didn't spend the whole year in what now looks like his best position.

Perhaps the biggest candidate to miss out, though, is Hugo Lloris. Savage has probably gone for Butland over the Frenchman due to the Stoke man's youth and the fact we have come to regularly expect a high standard from his Tottenham counterpart.

Mauricio Pochettino's men travel to Everton on Sunday afternoon for their next Premier League clash.
