Stan Collymore Picks His 2013 Best Premier League XI

Stan CollymoreSenior Writer IINovember 19, 2016

For this week's B/R column, I was asked to select my Premier League best XI for 2013. It wasn't easy, and there'll be plenty of debate over those I included and left out, but you'll hear the reasoning behind my choices above.

I went for Manchester United's David De Gea in goal, with a back four that's comprised of fullbacks from Everton and Manchester City, and a central pairing that will please Gunners fans immensely.

My 4-4-2 lineup utilises the red-hot Aaron Ramsey alongside Manchester City's Yaya Toure in the central positions. I've gone for a precocious talent from Chelsea on the left, with a rising Southampton star on the right.

It's when we starting talking about the strike pairing that things get really interesting. You simply can't overlook Luis Suarez for a starting spot. The big question is whom to play alongside him.

Manchester United's Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney both have strong arguments, as does Sergio Aguero at Manchester City. Might you even argue for Romelu Lukaku?

To find out whom I picked, you'll need to watch the video above.
