Goalkeeper: David Marshall (Cardiff City) 143 saves - No goalkeeper has made more saves than Marshall. Without his interventions, Cardiff would probably have been relegated before the clocks went forward
Full-back: Bacary Sagna (Arsenal)
2,550 touches - The Frenchman is out of contract at the end of the season but his importance to Arsenal is underlined by the fact that nobody has touched the ball more often in the league this season

Striker: Javier Hernandez (Manchester United)
73.3pc shooting accuracy - The 'Little Pea' is likely to be one of the casualties of United's summer clear-out, but his eye for accuracy - no striker with 10 shots or more this season has hit the target more regularly - should make him coveted.

This unlikely team compromises of some players who have come in for their fair share of criticism this season.

The inclusion of Rio Ferdinand will certainly raise eye-brows, while Lukas Podolski too has hardly set the world alight, despite a recent goal spree.

The team was compiled based on various statistics, some perhaps a little less relevant than others, but does nonetheless make for interesting viewing.
