Euros: Best Premier League XI heading to Germany

With the play-offs now over, the stage is set for this summer's Euros and it will not be long before players, coaches and fans start packing their bags for the tournament in Germany.

There is plenty to settle domestically beforehand, but the excitement is already building ahead of the Euros, with England still the favourites to win the trophy at 10/3.

Some of the world's best players will be doing all they can to win the trophy with their respective nations and plenty of them play their football in the Premier League.

With that in mind, we've picked the best Euros XI from the Premier League.

GK - Jordan Pickford

Fulham's Bernd Leno has enjoyed an incredible campaign so far for the Cottagers, but he is unlikely to replace Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the starting XI for Germany.

Everton's Jordan Pickford is assured the No.1 spot for England, barring injury and he has always stood up to the challenge on the international stage for his country.

Gareth Southgate has stayed loyal to Pickford throughout his tenure, and he will play a huge role if England go all the way.

RB - Kyle Walker

Another England man makes the XI is Kyle Walker, who could reach 90 caps for England in the next few months.

The Manchester City ace could be playing in his last tournament for England at the age of 33, but his pace is much needed at the back for the Three Lions.

Having won the treble last year with the Citizens, he has the experience England needed in high-pressure situations.

CB - Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dik is still playing to a world-class level and he will hope to win another Premier League title before heading to Germany.

The former Southampton and Cletic ace will captain the Netherlands this summer under Ronald Koeman and he will need to stay fit for them to have any chance of succeeding at odds of 16/1.

CB - Ruben Dias

Arsenal's William Saliba is unfortunate to miss out here, but the Gunners man is not guaranteed to start for France under head coach Didier Deschamps.

Manchester City's Ruben Dias is likely to start at the heart of Portugal's defence and add to his 54 caps for his country.

Dias is one of the world's best centre-backs and his development under Pep Guardiola has only helped his national side.

LB - Andrew Robertson

Left-back options are thin on the ground due to injuries, and Scotland's Andrew Robertson has carried a few niggles all season.

Should he be fit for the tournament, the Liverpool star is the standout candidate on the left side of defence.

The Scot's support play is second to none and he will be crucial to Scotland's chances of qualifying from the group stages.

RM - Bukayo Saka

Arsenal's Bukayo Saka recently sat out England's friendlies, but he is one of the first names on Southgate's teamsheet.

He has 13 goals and eight assists to his name this season already and he will look to add to his 11 goals for his country and showcase his skills on the big stage this summer.

CM - Rodri

Spain international Rodri continues to play at a high level for club and country, and such is his influence in Manchester City's midfield that their record is poor when he misses out.

He has been indispensable under Guardiola and he will be central to Spain's chances of winning the tournament at 8/1.

CM - Kevin De Bruyne

Belgium are considered to have a chance of going all the way this summer at 14/1, but they need Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to be fit and firing.

The playmaker can win a game on his own, such is the quality he brings to the starting XI, and he will captain De Rode Duivels and win his 100th cap later this summer if he is available.

LM - Phil Foden

This Manchester City team is good, right? Another one of Guardiola's troops makes the team and Phil Foden is arguably the player of the season at this stage of the campaign.

His ability to find space and create chances will cause havoc for any of England's opponents.

ST - Ollie Watkins

Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins got the chance to impress in the recent friendly against Brazil and he has already scored 16 goals this season.

Should Harry Kane pick up an injury, it will be Watkins who leads the line for the Three Lions and he has also picked up 10 assists in the Premier League, proving that he is more than just a finisher.

ST - Kai Havertz

Not many would have picked Kai Havertz for this team at the start of the year, but his improvement for Arsenal under Mikel Arteta has been one of the success stories of the Gunners' campaign.

He has played as a false nine for Germany in recent weeks, scoring in their friendly win against France and, with his confidence up, this could be the tournament when Havertz announces himself to the world.
