Danny Murphy has been asked to pick the 11 best players he came up against in his playing career.

Appearing on the Sky Sports Fantasy Football show, the player turned pundit included two former Newcastle players in his list.

Not the biggest surprise to see the greatest Premier League goal scorer included, Alan Shearer playing up front with Thierry Henry in Murphy’s team.

Elsewhere in the team, he has gone for the creativity of Chris Waddle, though of course by the time Danny Murphy was playing first team football, the one-time Newcastle winger had long since departed from St James Park.

David Seaman

Gary Neville

Rio Ferdinand

John Terry

Ashley Cole

Chris Waddle
