Only outfield player not in the top 4. Well done Ashley!
steako
I'm surprised that he made the 'team' ahead of players from the supposed 'Big 4', but its deserved recognition for our Ash.
glensider
Much deserved and shows how rapid and impressive his rise has been. Now just to cement a regular place in the England XI!
Tierney
He's no doubt learned a lot this season from John Robbo, one of the best left wingers I've ever seen, and an expert at putting those pin-point crosses on a team mates (usually Peter Withe) head.
glensider
Fully deserved. And who said 9 million was over the odds? Probably worth double that now!
