John Terry named eight Manchester United players in his all-time Premier League XI on Monday night.

Mr Chelsea was not allowed to choose Chelsea players so he could not even pick himself, opting instead to fill his team with Manchester United players.

Interestingly, Terry chose David De Gea ahead of Peter Schmeichel and there was no place for either Roy Keane or Patrick Vieira.

The only three non-Manchester United players are Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard, and Arsenal’s Thierry Henry.

Asked to choose between Gerrard, Paul Scholes and his Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard, Terry said:  “I’m going to say Lamps, aren’t I? But I do think naturally Scholes was unbelievable. He did things I’ve not seen many players do. He was incredible.

“But having seen Lamps training, and seeing what he could do, he was unbelievable.”

Terry said Henry was the most dangerous opponent he had ever faced

“Coming up against Arsenal, he was so quick. He was the best by far. He had everything, like the silent assassin, could score with his head, go short, go in behind,” he added on Monday Night Football.

“Literally the night before games, he is the one player in my career where I’d be thinking: ‘It’s going to be a tough day tomorrow.’ Nobody but him had that effect on me in my career.”
