In Owen’s pick, the former Man Utd keeper plays behind a four-man backline of Ashley Cole, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, and Gary Neville.

Owen admitted choosing the midfielders was the most challenging part of forming the lineup. 

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard plays at the heart of Owen’s Premier League XI alongside Paul Scholes and Patrick Vieira.

The trio play behind Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, and Cristiano Ronaldo, who form the team’s devastating front line.

Having left out Wayne Rooney from his lineup, Owen also selected three substitutes for his team: Rooney, Kevin De Bruyne, and Yaya Toure.

Speaking about picking Ronaldo in his XI, the former Newcastle star said: “I had to get Ronaldo in,

“He’s one of the greatest players ever. Full stop.”
