Ahead of that, we pick out best XI, using a 4-3-3 formation.

Tom Heaton (Burnley)

Some 108 saves already this season, 26 more than Manchester United's David de Gea and nearly twice as many as Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois. One-third of Burnley's 26 points are probably down to him.

Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)

Another Mourinho marvel who has been a relentlessly strong presence at right-back.

John Terry (Chelsea)

A remarkable season from the 34-year-old, who just loves playing for Jose Mourinho, with a handy return of goals too.

Jose Fonte (Southampton)

Those who expected Saints to crumble this season reckoned without the fortitude of their inspirational Portuguese captain.

Ryan Bertrand (Southampton)

England's FIFTH choice at left-back but he has been in the meanest defence in the Premier League. Good going forward too.

Eden Hazard (Chelsea)

So good that at times he has been almost unplayable - the best player in the Premier League this season.

Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)

A stunning first season in England, he has propelled the Gunners to the brink of their best year since the Invincibles.

Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool)

Liverpool have struggled without Luis Suarez, but the one ray of light has been the prowess of their young Brazilian.

Harry Kane (Tottenham)

Could be the first English striker since 2000 to finish as the Premier League's top goalscorer.

Diego Costa (Chelsea)

Mean, moody and often magnificent for Chelsea. Imagine if he had not had hamstring problems.

Charlie Austin (QPR)

To score 17 goals in a side threatened with relegation is some feat - and is nearly twice as many as the raved-about Danny Ings.
