Manchester United trio make Paul Merson’s team of the season 2022/23

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has selected three Manchester United players in his Premier League Team of the Season.

With the Premier League season winding down, pundits throughout the world will be naming their Team of the Season.

Former Arsenal midfielder has selected his in a piece for GIVEMESPORT, and he makes room for three Manchester United players.

No players from Liverpool, Chelsea or Tottenham made the cut.

Paul Merson’s Team of the Season: Aaron Ramsdale; Kieran Trippier, William Saliva, Sven Botman, Luke Shaw; Casemiro, Kevin De Bruyne, Martin Odegaard; Bukayo Saka, Erling Haaland, Marcus Rashford.

I don’t think anyone can have complaints over Merson’s selections for United. Luke Shaw has easily been the best left-back in the country, while the same could be said about both Casemiro and Rashford in their preferred positions.

Merson explains Shaw, Casemiro and Rashford selections

On Shaw: “I’m taking Luke Shaw at left-back. Even though he plays at centre-back sometimes, and plays well. Sometimes he looks like he’s playing within himself to me. I think there’s more to come from him. But that just shows you how good he’s been.”

On Casemiro: “Manchester United are chalk and cheese when he plays and when he doesn’t. People thought he was over the hill but no, he’s been unbelievable for them. I think he’s dragged United up with him, and showed what made him so good for all those years at Real Madrid.”

On Rashford: “Fair play to him. He’s come back from a bad situation. You were looking at him for a while thinking is this going to be a Dele Alli situation where someone has hit the heights and then faded away. But no, he’s been phenomenal. His pace, acceleration, he has taken it to another level this season.”

Let us know in the comments section if you think Merson could have squeezed in another United player. I’d pick Lisandro Martinez over Botman…
