The London XI: Which Arsenal, Spurs, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Chelsea players make combined team?

Which players from Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Chelsea players make combined team so far this season?

The Gunners sit fourth, followed by Spurs in fifth, the Hammers in sixth, Palace in 10th and Chelsea in 15th now we are a third of the way through the Premier League season.

Arsenal have won the most games with eight while Spurs, West Ham and the Eagles have all won six and Chelsea just four.

Spurs and West Ham both have the best attacking prowess, each scoring 24 goals, while the North London duo have the best defensive records conceding 11 goals each.

But which players make it into a London XI playing in the 4-2-3-1 formation favoured by most sides now we are over a third of the way through the campaign?

GK: Hugo Lloris

Should have been one of the toughest choices but in actual fact has been relatively easy with Lloris the outstanding choice. The France international is so commanding and quick off his line. He rarely, if ever, makes a mistake and his name is constantly linked to some of the world's biggest clubs. The top 'keeper in London without doubt.

RB: Hector Bellerin

One of the quickest players in the entire league Bellerin has been a revelation this season for the Gunners. He was up against the likes of Kyle Walker, Carl Jenkinson and Ivanovic but his attacking threat and unrelenting energy and pace give him the edge.

CB: Scott Dann

Has been the best central defender in London so far this season and should arguably have been given an England call for his form. With Gary Cahill and John Terry suffering and West Ham's central defenders changing too often it leaves Dann the standout choice.

CB: Jan Vertonghen

Alongside Dann has been a classy mainstay of the upwardly mobile Spurs side. Vertonghen is composed, reads the game superbly, is an athlete and is good in the air all of which makes up for his slight lack of pace. Another straightforward choice.

LB: Aaron Cresswell

Endured a tough day at Tottenham last time out where he was exposed by a lack of tracking back from his midfielders, but ever present Cresswell just gets the nod over Danny Rose and Keiron Gibbs. How he has not received an international call-up is baffling so good has his form been for West Ham since signing from Ipswich 18 months ago, during which time he has not missed a single minute of Premier League football.

CM: Yohan Cabaye

Class act who really has elevated Palace on to a new level in terms of quality. Already has four goals so far this season and a number of assists, Cabaye makes Alan Pardew's side tick.

CM: Francis Coquelin

Another cursed by injury on game 13. The all action midfielder has shone for his hard working, destructive displays as much as anyone in the Premier League. For every Sanchez or Ozil goal there will invariably be a Coquelin tackle moments before. So key to the way the Gunners set up.

AM: Dimitri Payet

One of the stars of the Premier League so far, the French magician has been wowing crowds up and down the country and led the Hammers to memorable away wins over Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Palace with goals, assists and great flair. Unfortunately for the Hammers and the Premier League he will now sit out the next three months after a crude challenge from Everton's James McCarthy.

AM: Christian Eriksen

The Danish maestro really is the lynchpin behind Tottenham's success this season and never seems to give the ball away. With his passing range and accuracy he is a danger from all over the park and weighs in with his fair share of goals too. He has been superb this season.

AM: Alexis Sanchez

Perhaps hasn't been in top form given his gruelling schedule but it was between him and teammate Mesut Ozil for the final attacking midfield berth. Sanchez is so powerful, pacy and skilful he offers too much to ignore. Has scored in every other game he has played this season and can only get better.

ST: Harry Kane

A real battle of some striking heavyweights with the likes of Olivier Giroud, Diego Costa and Diafra Sakho in the running. But Kane is the man up top for the London XI after turning around his difficult start through sheer hard work. He now has eight goals from his 13 games this season and is always looking to get a shot off. Kane has cemented his place in the England side too and actually comfortably makes it into the combined side.
