Darren Bent’s all-time Premier League XI has four forwards but no Frank Lampard

Darren Bent has not included Frank Lampard when naming his all-time Premier League XI.

Though the former Tottenham striker has named four forwards in his line-up, including Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah.

Bent went through his decisions on talkSPORT, with the 37-year-old opting for Petr Cech in goal.

Kyle Walker is included in the defence, alongside Vincent Kompany, Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole.

“My goalkeeper is Petr Cech, when he was at Chelsea he was brilliant,” Bent said.

“People can say Peter Schmeichel, I understand, Edwin van der Sar as well, but I think Petr Cech, I think he’s got the most clean sheets as well as a goalkeeper, he was brilliant for Chelsea."

With the Lampard, Paul Scholes or Steven Gerrard debate often rife between football fans, Bent has included just one of the trio in his midfield.

Liverpool hero Gerrard makes the cut, alongside Patrick Vieira, with Bent's team being front-loaded with attacking firepower.

“My two in the middle of the park, tough again, Patrick Vieira, that wasn’t tough, he was always going to get in there Patrick Vieira.
