I've gone for Mata who has been far and away the best Chelsea player this year, he makes them tick and without him in their side they're just not the same.

My second pick goes to Gerrard who for me has been outstanding this year, he seemed to struggle to adapt at first, but for the rest of the season he's been a force in that midfield. Tackling, passing, driving forward he's been back to as close to his best as we can expect and it's been great to see.

I still don't rate Michael Carrick, I think he's become massively overrated because he was underrated and he isn't as important to the United side as people make out. Yaya Toure has been completely average this year, based on this years performances he wouldn't be worth £8 million never mind £24m.

Lampard's goals have overshadowed what hasn't been a great season, he's slowing down a lot now and doesn't have the ability to adapt like Gerrard has. Cazorla has had a good year but has lost the same spark since being shunted out onto the wing. Dembele came close to being my second pick as he's been excellent in the Spurs midfield.

Kevin Nolan should be nowhere near this list. He wouldn't even be in my top two West Ham CMs of the season (Noble and Diame are far superior) but I'll save my rant for another day.

I picked Mata, because he has been consistently brilliant all year for Chelsea and has been the deciding factor in close games. I remember his brilliance in beating Spurs at White Hart Lane especially.

I plumped for Carrick second. I think he's had a consistent season and been a calming influence in an otherwise fairly weak midfield area for United.

Agree with Crimey though, I almost went for Dembele.

No votes for Marouane Fellaini?

I'm quite surprised that Fellaini has zero votes, he was excellent in the first half of the season, a real driving force in that Everton team and scored important match winning goals. He has great technically ability added to his size, strength and aerial ability, a complete midfield player.

100% agree with the above comments on Dembele, once considered a forward he makes such a difference in the Spurs midfield, his ability to go past people in tight spaces is amazing and he keeps the team moving forward with almost every touch. 3rd best Spurs player this season behind Bale and Jan Van.

He's been fairly insignificant towards the end of the season though, I feel Mata and Carrick have been more consistent. (Coming from an Everton fan)

Has mata even been playing in centre midfield?

Haven't seen him of late but I thought he played wide last season and the first half of this and the no 10 in a 4231 since Benitez took over?

We should be stating a formation for this comp IMO.

Anyway went for carrick.

To be fair Tettey shouldn't be on this list, he's hardly played due to injury in the 2nd half of the season.

Went for Mata and super Frank. Mata is the best player in the league imo

Mata and Super Frank Lampard IMO.

How Lampard has only got 2 votes, is beyond me.

foramtion is 4-4-2 Mata isnt a winger, he has been playing off the main striker, so fits better in CM than on the wing

Mmmm maybe should have gone Mata to partner Carrick (the Prem's stand out CM for me this yr) but I just don't immediately think of Mata as a CM. Whereas Yaya is just immense and I'm in awe almost every time I see him play.

Toure has been absolutely awful this year. One of the main reasons City haven't been able to mount a real title bid is because of Toure's average play.

Cos he's a Kumquat.

Gone Mata and Maloney. I knew Carrick would be fine for votes so just chose Maloney as he's been exceptional for Wigan. Cazorla also reminded everyone how unbelievably good he is last night

mata's not a cm, he's an attacking midfielder or a wide player certainly not a cm.

carrick and carzola have been the two best cm's in that list

compelling and rich

I didn't say he was I said he played wide last season and no10 this year.

You say he's playing off a striker - clearly not a cm.

Not trying to get at you, appreciate the effort and the polls just expressing my opinion players are being selected in positions they don't actually play.

Thats only because you have to have flexibility when naming these things. If we're going standard 4-4-2 then by those standards we'd have to nullify Cazorla Mata and Bale to start with as none of those have played in a strict 4-4-2 setting all season.

Basically, consider their form where theyve been playing, not the position on the list

I don't think having bale in my team of the season behind rvp is being awkward personally but each to their own.
