Tottenham Hotspur legend Glenn Hoddle has named in The Daily Mail his Premier League Team of the Season.

The former England international midfielder has named Manchester United’s David de Gea as his goalkeeper.

Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin, Tottenham Hotspur duo Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose, and United’s Daley Blind make up Hoddle’s back-four.

Blind is a surprise choice, and the former Chelsea man himself admits that. The former Tottenham boss, though, has explained why he has picked the Netherlands international in his team.

“I think most will agree with my team of the year other than one selection: Daley Blind at centre-half,” Hoddle wrote in The Daily Mail. “But in a very average season for his team, I have been impressed with him.

“Everyone thought they could get at him in the air and use pace against him. But no one has exposed him. And his distribution has been excellent, as you would expect.”

Blind, who can play as a defender or as a defensive midfielder, has done well for United this season.

The 26-year-old has scored one goal and created 24 chances in 34 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils this campaign.

The Dutchman has a pass accuracy of 84%, and has won 34 headers, 19 dribbles and 67 tackles.

Leicester City star Jamie Vardy and Tottenham youngster are Hoddle’s strikers, while West Ham United’s Dimitri Payet, Dele Alli of Spurs and Foxes’ star Riyad Mahrez are the three attack-minded midfielders.

N'Golo Kante of Leicester is the holding midfielder in the team in a 4-1-3-2 formation.
