Just as De Telegraaf named their Dutch Eredivisie team of the season so far, L’Equipe have also followed with the French version following the arrival of the winter break in Ligue 1.
There is no place for Joey Barton (who hasn’t played the requisite number of games), despite a decent start to the campaign with Marseille that was curtailed by suspension but his team mate Mathieu Valbuena is one of the stand out names picked out by L’Equipe.
Lyon’s fine (surprising) start to the campaign sees three OL players included, with Steed Malbranque picked in midfield following his return to high class football.
PSG’s two big summer signings also take their place with Thiago Silva and Ligue 1’s top goal scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic unsurprisingly part of the XI below.
The graphic comes via @teddyol69 on Twitter and below it is an official Ligue 1 video with all of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s goals for PSG so far.
