Premier League - Fans choose all-time XI
Manchester United players have dominated a poll conducted to determine the greatest Premier League XI ever.
Over 260,000 fans worldwide voted on Barclays Football Facebook page to pick the ultimate XI, with United - by far the most successful team of the Premier League era - providing seven players past and present.
The highly decorated Ryan Giggs gets the nod on the left hand side of midfield after a glittering career spanning the entire existence of the Premier League, while fellow veteran and the equally evergreen Paul Scholes takes his place in the middle.
David Beckham claimed more votes than his fellow United number seven Cristiano Ronaldo to line up on the right while Eric Cantona, the man widely credited with sparking United’s incredible run of success back in the 1992-93 season, plays up front.
Just for good measure, United provide the manager too, Sir Alex Ferguson leading the side from the bench having won an overwhelming 64 per cent of the vote.
Liverpool’s talismanic Steven Gerrard breaks up United’s dominance in midfield, while Chelsea’s John Terry and Arsenal legend Tony Adams - both great leaders of men - were voted on to the team at centre-back.
Completing the team is Thierry Henry of Arsenal, who lines up alongside Cantona in an all French forward line.
