Ranveer Singh And Arjun Kapoor Trolled By Die-hard Premier League Fans For Outlandish TOTS

Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor faced quite a backlash on social media after the duo teamed up to pick the Premier League Team of the Season.

Premier League ambassador Ranveer Singh and Chelsea FC ambassador Arjun Kapoor just faced the wrath of social media for choosing an outlandish Premier League Team of the Season. Ranveer Singh, a longtime supporter of Arsenal FC, was roped in as the league's ambassador for India back in 2017. Meanwhile, Arjun Kapoor was appointed as the face of Chelsea FC in India in October 2019. 

While a team-up between Bollywood's two leading men is usually the recipe for success, Ranveer and Arjun's match-up to choose the Premier League Team of the Season wasn't well-received by the fans. Although it was meant just to be a light-hearted effort to acknowledge some of the best players of the season, but for football fans, the team was nothing but a massive joke.

Premier League TOTS: Ranveer and Arjun pick season's best XI

Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor did, in fact, start things with some great picks, choosing Premier League winners Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson to marshall the defence. While picking Alisson over the likes of Ederson, Nick Pope and Dean Henderson will be up for debate, at least it was a credible start from the two actors. The star-studded line-up featured Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Man City's Sergio Aguero leading the line while Liverpool's Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah running down the wings. City's Kevin De Bruyne also made his way into side courtesy of his involvement in 30 goals (19 assists, 11 goals) this season. 

So, where did it fall apart for the duo? In the middle of the park. Ranveer and Arjun picked Chelsea star Ngolo Kante to play centrally. Although one of the best defensive midfielders in the league, the 2019/20 season was arguably Kante's worst in England. If that didn't push fans over the edge, Man City's Fernandinho was picked as the second defensive midfielder/ centre back, making the formation a hybrid between 4-4-2 or super-attacking 3-5-2.
