Robbie Savage and Chris Sutton were tasked by BT Sport with picking their EPL All-Star North and South XIs – and their choices are controversial.

But so is Benjamin Mendy, who has spent the majority of this season out injured.

Thibaut Courtois gets the nod in goal, while Eden Hazard, Harry Kane and Mousa Dembele are all also included. But there’s a spot for Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez out on the right too, while Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen misses out?

Here’s the North XI:
