Shearer's Team of the Decade dominated by City
Alan Shearer has named five City Players in his Premier League Team of the Decade.

And the former Newcastle striker has also chosen Pep Guardiola to manage his side.

Shearer, the all-time leading scorer in the Premier League with a remarkable 260 goals, decided on a 3-4-3 formation, with Vincent Kompany in defence, David Silva, Yaya Toure and Kevin De Bruyne in midfield and Sergio Aguero upfront.

The heavy representation of City players reflects our dominance this decade. We have won four titles – more than any other side – and have taken the most points (812).

We have also registered the best overall goal difference (+500).

Guardiola’s inclusion can also be justified by numbers. His Premier League win percentage of 74.62 percent and his points-per-game average of 2.374 are both unrivalled.

Shearer’s XI: Cech, Kompany, Terry, Ivanovic, Silva, Kante, Toure, De Bruyne, Aguero, Rooney, Hazard

Manager: Guardiola
