Who are the top-performing uncapped Englishmen this season? We've checked the Sky Sports Power Rankings to find out.
The Sky Sports Power Rankings - published every week - reflect a player's game-by-game performance, based on 32 different matchday stats.
Ahead of England's friendly with Spain on Tuesday night, here are the top uncapped English performers in each position, based on their displays since the start of the 2016/17 campaign...
Stoke City's Lee Grant makes the cut in goal, ahead of Sunderland 'keeper Jordan Pickford. The 33-year-old arrived at the Bet365 Stadium on a six-month loan from Derby County to cover the injured Jack Butland but grabbed headlines with his heroics against Manchester United and has only conceded four goals in six games this season.
Burnley's Michael Keane could make his debut against Spain on Tuesday and the 23-year-old is the top-performing uncapped English centre-back in the Premier League, according to the Sky Sports Power Rankings.
Steve Cook got on the scoresheet for Bournemouth during their 6-1 win over Hull last month and partners Keane at centre-back in this XI.
Fellow Cherries defender Adam Smith has assisted three goals and scored another this season and also makes the starting XI at right-back.
Middlesbrough's George Friend takes the left-back spot, having impressed during his inaugural top-flight season after a career in the lower leagues with Exeter, Wolves and Doncaster Rovers, along with several loan stints including Tiverton Town and Team Bath.
Our uncapped England XI features a midfield packed with attacking threat. Junior Stanislas is Bournemouth's third player to make the team, having scored three goals and assisted two others in just six league games this season.
With five headed goals from 11 league games, West Ham's Michail Antonio slots in on the right wing, having been an unused sub for England during Sam Allardyce's only game in charge against Slovakia.
Crystal Palace's Jason Puncheon takes up a central midfield role, allowing in-form Southampton attacker Nathan Redmond to push forward.
Two seasoned strikers lead the line in Southampton's Charlie Austin and Watford's Troy Deeney.
Austin received an England call-up in May last year after scoring 18 goals for relegated QPR but failed to earn his international debut under Roy Hodgson.
The 27-year-old made the move to Southampton this season and has scored five goals in his last seven Premier League games at St Mary's.
Deeney reportedly attracted interest from Arsenal this summer after his partnership with Odion Ighalo helped Watford to a 13th-place finish during their first season back in the Premier League since 2007. He's scored three and set up another so far this term.
Another three Bournemouth players make the bench in left-back Charlie Daniels, midfielder Dan Gosling and striker Callum Wilson.
Burnley duo Ben Mee and Dean Marney, along with Hull's Curtis Davies and Sam Clucas are also among the subs.
Sunderland's Pickford was drafted into Gareth Southgate's current England squad to replace the injured Fraser Forster and the 22-year-old makes the uncapped England XI bench as cover for Grant.
