Harry Redknapp has selected FIVE Chelsea players in his Premier League Team of the Year so far.
The former Tottenham Hotspur boss believes Blues keeper Thibaut Courtois has been the best-performed gloveman in the opening 17 matches while teammate David Luiz makes central defence in a back four.
Redknapp has placed Eden Hazard on the left wing, with N’Golo Kante in central midfield, while Diego Costa, who has 13 league goals, is part of a star-studded front three made up by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez.
There was room for two Spurs players, in full-backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose, but no other cub featured twice or more for Redknapp.
