For the penultimate time this season…

1. Joe Hart

Without his save in the Cup Final, there would only be one open-top bus parade going on in Manchester. Very confident - sometimes overly so - but in a way that’s a huge advantage most of the time.

2. Rafael

Or it might be Fabio, because we still can’t tell the difference. A little bit rash sometimes, but gives United the forward threat from right-back that Gary Neville provided for such a long time.

3. Leighton Baines

Great crosser, under-rated defender. Manages also to play for Everton without getting injured continuously.

4. Christopher Samba

Like Hangeland, the most important player in his team. Whereas Fulham would be in trouble without Hangeland, Blackburn would be in the Championship without Samba. A criminally underrated defender, and probably a transfer target for a couple of the Top 6 over the Summer. Probably terrifying to play against.

5. Brede Hangeland

The difference between Fulham being safe and being relegation-threatened. A huge presence in both boxes as well, Mark Hughes will do well to keep hold of him over the Summer.

6. Yaya Toure

Just a monster. Included off the back of making Nemanja Vidic look like a Championship player at Wembley

7. Maxi Rodriguez

We really don’t like him as a player, but you just can’t leave him out with his current goal-scoring record.

8. Luka Modric

So we’re going for a midfield three, and Tottenham’s smallest Croat is the best of the lot. Technique, vision, and very dainty - this is how God made midfielders. Can you imagine having to play five-a-side against him?

9. Wayne Rooney

Yes, that’s f***ing right! Hard to argue with his current goalscoring record. Looks constantly angry which we quite like.

10. Javier Hernandez

As a friend of the website is prone to saying: ‘He just scores goals’. Not the worst attribute.

11. Dirk Kuyt

Even when Liverpool were abysmal Kuyt was playing at an acceptable level, and his work-rate and goals have a lot to do with where his team now are in the table. Recently the recipient of a new contract, which is fantastic news for Liverpool fans - he would leave a far bigger hole in the team than most appreciate.
