Eleven games into the Premier League season it is time for reflection, as a third international window of the club season is upon us. Troy Aikman Jersey . After eleven games, there have been many standout performances. Here is my best XI of the season so far: GK - David De Gea (Manchester United) - It is no coincidence that the standard of goalkeeping in the Premier League has risen at the same time the standard of defending has dropped. Many goalkeepers are having outstanding seasons for their clubs, playing behind some vulnerable back fours, including Joe Hart and Hugo Lloris who have had excellent seasons so far, but no one has been better than De Gea. The Spaniard has made some of the best saves of the season some of which came in the Manchester derby, but no save has been better than the one he made against Bryan Oviedo in injury time against Everton at Old Trafford. RB - Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton) - The 23-year-old Englishman has kicked into another gear this season after progressing nicely last year under Mauricio Pocchetino. Guided by new boss Ronaldo Koeman he is still encouraged to get forward, often positioning himself on the halfway line when his centre-back partners ignite an attack, and his excellent form has seen him rewarded with a call up to the England squad. Clyne is not the best right back in the league, Seamus Coleman and Branislav Ivanovic would have strong arguments for that honour, but on form he has been the standout right back so far this season. The Manchester Evening News recently reported that Manchester United should reunite Luke Shaw with his former full back partner. Clyne has got a long way to go to play for a team like United regularly but at Southampton he is excelling at a steady pace. CB - Gary Cahill (Chelsea) - In a league full of inconsistent performers at the centre-back position, Cahill excels and never has a bad game. Comfortable in possession, quick and strong, the English defender is outstanding in the air and becomes a menace in both penalty areas. Considering the era of average English teams on a national basis it is every credit to Cahill that one of the worlds finest club teams currently has a member of Englands defence at the heart of it and one that no one ever says needs replacing. CB - Winston Reid (West Ham) - No position in the league has seen more money wasted on it in the past couple of years than centre back. No longer can a team part with over 10 million pounds on a defender and call him a sure thing. Just ask Liverpool who has spent 37 million on two centre backs in the last 15 months and neither have convinced yet. Reid, a free agent next summer, however continues to put in consistent performances for a Hammers side that have had a tremendous start to the season and it is little wonder that the Kiwi is stalling on a new contract with many big clubs looking at him next summer as a potential free agent signing. LB - Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea) - Pundit Gary Neville has a very loud voice these days. This is not a bad thing as the former Man Utd defender is outstanding in his role for Sky Sports and is so well respected that when he says something many automatically agree. Neville recently said the Spanish full back was the best defender in the Premier League. Based on his form this season it is hard to disagree as the former Marseille man has continued to impress in a left back slot despite being more familiar at right back. Jose Mourinho made the move to put the 25-year-old at left back, instead of Ashley Cole, at this time last year and it speaks to his development, and, to a degree, the weakness of the position throughout the game, that he can be considered one of the worlds finest left backs at the moment. M - Nemanja Matic (Chelsea) - The outstanding midfielder of the Premier League so far. This time last season Chelsea were playing a similar system to what they play now but with Frank Lampard and Ramires as the two central midfielders. The duo was effective against some teams but they lacked many significant attributes needed in a top midfield. Matic brings tremendous power and strength along with an outstanding footballing IQ. He reads the game brilliantly and without him the rest of the stars who get much more publicity at the club (including his manager) would not be as successful. M - Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea) - The summer signing from Barcelona brings the guile, creativity and finishing ability that the midfield lacked last season. He has formed a phenomenal partnership with Matic that will be sensational for Mourinho for most domestic matches. Occasionally the pair could struggle in tandem against top teams away in the league, and in the Champions League, and may need another, deeper midfielder than the Spaniard in more competitive matches, but, overall, the pair can more than excel against weaker teams domestically. His assist for Andre Schurrles goal against Burnley on the opening weekend remains the best pass of the season and his goal at Crystal Palace showed Chelsea now have a central midfielder on the same creative wavelength as…. M - Eden Hazard (Chelsea) - It was a difficult summer for Hazard at the World Cup for Belgium. The world watched expecting the star to reach the next level and dominate on the games biggest stage but that didnt happen. However, since returning to Chelsea he has continued his development and no longer seems to wait for the game to come to him. Instead he often grabs hold of periods of the game and brings fear into opposing defenders. Hazard is a breathtaking dribbler and now has far better players around him than last season, which will only speed up his inevitable progression into a world-class talent. F - Sergio Aguero (Man City) - No matter what side you support it is great to see Aguero fit and in form again. When he plays consistently at this level it is easy to make a case for him to be the third best player in the game. Aguero scores goals with both feet and his head, inside the box and out, on the break or on instinct. Citys title credentials still remain because of the individual brilliance the Argentine forward brings each week. Having started just 37 games combined the last two Premier League seasons, both he and his team will be hoping he starts over 30 this season. F - Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) - Where would Arsenal be without the Chilean? Citys reliance on Aguero to make them good instead of average has been well documented but Sanchez has made Arsenal average instead of poor. Like Aguero, he scores goals in different ways, pulling off at the back post like he did against Manchester City, scoring one-on-ones, like against Sunderland, and scoring goals with his head or drifting in from the wing, like he did against Burnley. A true, genuine difference maker that Arsenal are lucky to have. F - Diego Costa (Chelsea) - No current player has made it look easier to score goals in this league than the former Atletico Madrid man. Like Aguero and Sanchez he is a genuine world-class star because of his versatility in front of goals. He can be a poacher but he reads plays brilliantly, finding space and anticipating where the ball will be so he can finish in style. Completes the revamp of a much-needed spine through the middle for a much-improved Chelsea team. Subs - Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), John Terry (Chelsea), Leighton Baines (Everton), Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton), Angel Di Maria (Man Utd), Dusan Tadic, Graziano Pelle (both Southampton). L. P. Ladouceur Jersey . The St. Louis Cardinals were scheduled to arrive in Boston in time for a workout on Tuesday afternoon. Much of Mondays discussion focused on Bostons lineup considerations as the series progresses, specifically when the venue shifts to St. Darren Woodson Jersey . 9 Baylor Bears just needed some time to get on track in their first game after the Christmas break. http://www.cowboysfootballgearshop.com/taco-charlton-jersey/ .com) - NFL owners have unanimously approved the sale of the Buffalo Bills.Augsburg, Germany (SportsNetwork.com) - Augsburg will be aiming to repeat its upset of Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich on Saturday as the two sides tangle in a battle of top-three clubs. Augsburgs inclusion in the top three is certainly a surprise, but no more so than the teams 1-0 win over the champions last April, which also took place at the SGL Arena. That result ended Bayerns 53-game unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga, but the hosts will certainly have their work cut out for them if they want to repeat that performance. Bayern has won 11 of 14 games in league play, scoring 33 times while yielding just three goals. In fact, Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has allowed just one goal in his last 12 league appearances. Goals figure to be difficult to come by for Augsburg, but the club can at least take some confidence from the fact that they are riding a four-game winning streak that has propelled them to the lofty heights of a top-three place. Wolfsburg is second in the table, seven points back of Bayern, and the club will seek its ninth win in 10 Bundesliga matches as Paderborn comes to town with the visitors having earned just two points from a possible 12. Larry Allen Jersey. Bayer Leverkusen and Monchengladbach meet up on Sunday with both sides level on 23 points, one point from third place, while Schalke is also on 23 points and hosts Cologne having qualified for the knockout round in the Champions League in midweek. Borussia Dortmund climbed off the bottom of the league last weekend and the club eyes a second straight win at Hertha Berlin, which is level with Dortmund on 14 points, just one place above the drop zone. Stuttgart sunk to the bottom of the league last weekend and the club will try for its fourth win of the campaign at Mainz, while second-from-the-bottom Werder Bremen hosts Hannover and bottom-half sides Freiburg and Hamburg square off at Mage Solar Stadium. On Friday, Hoffenheim grabbed a 3-2 win over Eintracht thanks to a goal from Roberto Firmino in the 87th minute, which came 10 minutes after Eintrachts Haris Seferovic leveled the contest.
