Arsenal's Tony Adams Picks Best XI He Ever Played With, Including David Beckham

Arsenal legend Tony Adams has picked a team from the best players he ever lined up with, for Sky Sports, and not surprisingly, ex-Gunners dominate the 4-4-1-1 lineup.

The iconic defender represented Arsenal between 1983 and 2002 and also played for England 66 times.

He opts for David Seaman in goal, "because I see him regularly and he would kill me otherwise."

The 49-year-old captained a league winner in three different decades, so its no surprise that his old club teammates make up nine of his 10 selections.

Adams overlooks the likes of Viv Anderson, Kenny Sansom, Ashley Cole and Sol Campbell to keep together a formidable back line of Lee Dixon, Nigel Winterburn, Steve Bould and himself.

In midfield, he's selected the talented Emmanuel Petit and Patrick Vieira with Robert Pires and David Beckham, with whom he played for his country.

He chooses Petit and Vieira for their strength and athleticism, Pires for his pace and Beckham for his "delivery and work rate."

And up front, he picks Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry in a decision that will have no Arsenal fans complaining.
