Mohamed Salah? Vincent Kompany? Harry Kane? Who makes it into The National's Premier League team of the decade

Steve Luckings picks his best XI and manager since 2010

As a new year approaches, it's hard to look beyond a Liverpool team building up a head of steam that could see the Reds sweep all before them to become only the second Premier League club this century to go an entire campaign unbeaten.

Jurgen Klopp's European and world champions are sitting pretty 10 points clear at the top with their best chance of ending a 30-year wait for an English title. They enter 2020 as the team to beat.

But before the clock strikes midnight on December 31 there is plenty of football to cram in over the Christmas period.

When it does, it will bring down the curtain on one of the most memorable decades in English football.

From Alex Ferguson signing off with the last of his 13 titles in 2013, Leicester City, the ultimate underdogs, putting together a fairy-tale run to the 2016 championship, and Manchester City becoming the dominant force in English football, culminating in becoming the first English top-flight team to amass 100 points in 2018.

Of course, none of those achievements are even possible without the exceptional talents of the players who lit up the English top flight from 2010-2019.

With that in mind, above is a photo gallery of our Premier League team of the decade, using a 4-3-3 system plus a manager.
