Frank Lampard selects five Chelsea stars in his Premier League Team of the Season.

Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to 10 points on Monday evening, as Eden Hazard and Costa struck in a 2-1 victory against West Ham United.

Predictably, due to their utter dominance of the division this season, the Blues featured heavily in an all-star line-up assembled by the recently-retired Lampard post-game for Sky Sports.

The former midfielder also picked two English stars from second-placed Tottenham Hotspur in his 4-1-3-2 system, though none from either Arsenal or Manchester City.

 

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea makes an appearance in goal, despite his 10 clean sheets this term being beaten by Thibaut Courtois (13).

The back-line is constructed of Cesar Azpilicueta, Michael Keane, David Luiz and Ryan Bertrand.

 

Surprisingly, the defence features no Spurs players, despite Mauricio Pochettino’s men shipping a division-low 20 goals.

N’Golo Kante, who has continued his exceptional Leicester City form with Chelsea, has proven his immense value with a combined total of 112 interceptions and tackles – the joint-most of any Premier League midfielder.

 

Adam Lallana is the sole representative of Liverpool, despite their free-flowing attacking play, and is joined by Hazard and Dele Alli. The trio have netted seven, 11 and 13 goals, respectively.

Though the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic surely provided stern competition, Lampard has opted for top Premier League scorer Kane (19 strikes) and Costa (17) in his XI.
