With the Premier League season now into its second half, it’s time to pause, cogitate and deliberate on the Prem team of the season so far. In a 4-5-1 formation, this is our selection of star performers – there is no Fabregas, no Gerrard, no Lampard, no Drogba, no Titus Bramble. And that’s mighty refreshing. Feel free to offer up your own XIs, of course…
Joe Hart (Man City) - We've quickly become used to Hart's excellence and solidity, but that shouldn't detract from his routinely brilliant displays for City thus far in 2010-11. He's been something of a clean-sheet machine and is clearly developing into a world-class No.1.
