As we enter the final international break of the Premier League season, we have created a Premier League best XI from this campaign - according to the Sky Sports Power Rankings season chart.
The rankings are updated every week and reflect players' form based on points awarded for 32 different matchday stats.
Using that season chart, we've assembled the top-ranked players for each position in 4-3-3 formation - the system of choice for champions-elect Manchester City and third-placed Liverpool.
