Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Crystal Palace players make up the combined London XI in the Premier League so far this season.

Hugo Lloris of France reacts during warmup before the international friendly match between France and Colombia at Stade de France on March 23, 2018 in Paris, France.


Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been brilliant this season, but Tottenham Hotspur star Hugo Lloris has been better. Although the France international goalkeeper has made mistakes on some occasions this campaign, he has also made some incredible saves that have enabled Tottenham to win matches.


Kieran Trippier is not a world-class right-back and is not another Kyle Walker, but the England international is a very balanced defender. The 27-year-old may have to fight for a place in the starting lineup in the Tottenham team with Serge Aurier, but the England international has shown that he can be as good at the back as he is going forward.

Andreas Christensen has established himself in the Chelsea starting lineup and has been one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League this season. The 21-year-old has made 19 starts in the league, and his performances have been hugely impressive.

Cesar Azpilicueta is one of the most consistent and underrated defenders in the Premier League, and he is also very versatile. Blessed with the ability to play as a centre-back or as a full-back, the 28-year-old Spain international has been as good as ever and is a centre-back in our formation.

Like Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso is a very versatile footballer who can operate as a left-back or as a wing-back. The 27-year-old Spaniard has scored six goals and provided one assist in 28 league starts for Chelsea and is a left-back in our formation.


Wilfried Zaha has had injury issues this season, but the winger has been great when he has featured for Crystal Palace. The Ivory Coast international, who has scored four goals and provided two assists in 21 Premier League starts for Palace so far this season, will be key player for the Eagles in their quest to avoid the drop to the Championship.

Christian Eriksen is the creator-in-chief for Tottenham, and the Denmark international attacking midfielder has been stunning for the North London club. The 26-year-old has scored seven goals and provided eight assists in 29 league appearances for Spurs.

Chelsea may not having a great season, but N’Golo Kante continues to play well. The 26-year-old is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, and the France international has done well for the Blues this campaign and remains a permanent figure in Antonio Conte’s team.

Eden Hazard is not having exactly his best season, but the Belgium international attacking midfielder is playing well for Chelsea and remains one of the best players in the world. The 27-year-old, who can also operate as a winger, has scored 11 goals and provided three assists in 22 league starts for the Blues.


Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in the Premier League, and the Tottenham striker has been stunning this season. The 24-year-old striker has scored 24 goals and provided two assists in 28 league starts for Spurs.

Son Heung-min has improved over the years and has been stunning for Tottenham this season. The South Korea international, who can operate as a forward or as a winger, has stepped up in the absence of Kane and has chipped in with important goals. Son has scored 12 goals and provided four assists in 22 Premier League starts for Tottenham so far this season.
