England XI based on Sky Sports Power Rankings’ in-form players

England XI based on Sky Sports Power Rankings’ in-form players

Gareth Southgate reveals his England squad on Thursday and we’ve created a starting XI based on the most in-form players, according to the Sky Sports Power Rankings.

Wayne Rooney announced his retirement from international football on Wednesday – but the former England skipper would have made the starting line-up based on form.

In fact, the rankings suggest Rooney is the most in-form English player – scoring a match-winning header for Everton against Stoke and also finding the target during their 1-1 draw with Manchester City.

Meanwhile, City right-back Kyle Walker is absent from the form team after receiving a controversial red card at the Etihad.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane misses out on a starting place, having failed to score his first Premier League goal in the month of August during Spurs’ 2-0 win at Newcastle and 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.

The starting XI includes four debutants – three in defence and one in midfield – and the bench includes another two uncapped players at senior level.

GOALKEEPER/ DEFENCE

Jack Butland gets the nod between the sticks ahead of Everton’s Jordan Pickford. The Stoke stopper produced a string of heroic saves during the Potters’ 1-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday.

The Power Rankings suggest Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire is England’s most in-from player available for selection and partners West Brom’s Craig Dawson – both uncapped at senior level.

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is utilised at left-back, while Manchester United defender Phil Jones takes the right-back spot, based on form over preferred position – ranking ahead of Walker and Kieran Trippier after two Premier League games.

MIDFIELD

Crystal Palace new boy Ruben Loftus-Cheek, on loan from Chelsea, is the only debutant in the centre of the pitch alongside top-ranked midfielder Dele Alli.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is employed down the left wing and Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain provides additional pace down the right flank.

ATTACK

With Harry Kane goalless in the Premier League, in-form Leicester striker Jamie Vardy leads the line, having scored two goals during Leicester’s 4-3 defeat to Arsenal on the opening day.

Gunners’ forward Danny Welbeck also makes the starting XI as a secondary striker after cancelling out Vardy’s first goal against the Foxes.
