New Year's Day is traditionally the halfway mark in the English Premier League season and since that time we've all read article after article proclaiming who the best players in the league are.
Tottenham's Gareth Bale is the best winger in England. Manchester United's Wayne Rooney is a world-class forward. Arsenal's Robbie Van Persie is too good for words.
Blah, blah, blah.
It's easy for the biggest, richest clubs in England to have the most talented players on their squad, but what about the minnows of the Premier League?
There are five clubs—Wolverhampton, Queens Park Rangers, Bolton, Wigan and Blackburn—who are currently separated by only three points. Three of these clubs will likely be relegated by season's end.
But that doesn't mean these clubs don't have some outstanding players of their own.
While the rest of the world puts together all-star lineups consisting of top teams, I present to you the best eleven players from the bottom feeders of the English Premier League.
