Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea dominate this 2000s XI

Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are juggernauts of English football.

Arsenal’s zenith came in 2003-04, when Arsene Wenger’s side won the title without losing a single game. The following season saw the emergence of a relatively new force in Premier League football, with a Roman Abramovich-backed Chelsea side swaggering to back-to-back titles under Jose Mourinho.

Predictably, Sir Alex Ferguson’s United came back into the League-winning fold in 2006-07, and won three consecutive titles before Chelsea took it back in 2010.

So it’s no wonder that those three teams DOMINATE this 2000s XI, as published in The Mirror.

Take a look at this:

They listed some subs too:

Edwin van der Saar, William Gallas, Claude Makelele, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp, Wayne Rooney, Ruud van Nistelrooy

It’s hard to disagree with that selection. Perhaps United fans will feel put out that Van der Saar didn’t make the final XI, and it’s something of a mystery that neither John Terry or Nemanja Vidic are in the squad.
