Monday Night Football pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher have both selected their Premier League team of the decade.
The start of the decade was brilliant but predictable for Manchester United fans, winning two league titles in the first three years under Sir Alex Ferguson.
But since Sir Alex’s retirement in 2013, United have failed to mount a serious title challenge once and have been through four different managers.
United are now barely recognisable from the powerhouse they once were on the pitch, and it’s no surprise to see that only one player has been selected by Carragher and Neville.
The pair opted for David de Gea in goal; the Spaniard has been consistently brilliant over a sustained period for the Reds and deservedly makes the team.
Despite his form being questioned in the past year, De Gea has been one of the only shining lights in the post-Sir Alex era and the club could have suffered even more without the ‘keeper’s crucial saves keeping them in matches.
Both teams are inevitably dominated by Manchester City players, who unlike United, have managed to maintain their success since winning their first title in 2012.
