What if Suarez had stayed at Liverpool?

What if Bale had stayed at Spurs?

What if the top 6 teams had kept their strongest squads?

Now if you're like me and have read countless web articles called something like 'Spurs team if they hadn't sold their players' followed by an image like this...

Naturally it gets you thinking about your own team and what sort of team could be put out each week.

For this experiment I have attempted to achieve just that. For each of the 'Top 6' teams in the Premier League I have either reversed some previous transfers or improved the weaker areas of their teams through returning former players to their peak.

The following rules were used:

Only people who are on the original FM database were edited i.e. Patrick Vieira is not longer a player so was changed back to a player and place in the Arsenal squad

Any player who was put into one of the squads had their age reduced so avoid 45 year old players

When changing a staff member to a player it automatically gives them no stats. I used my best judgement to give the players the stats of when they were at their peak for their respective clubs

In some cases it was unnecessary to reinstate certain players as the positions were already adequately covered i.e De Gea removes the need for Schmeichel

Teaser: Chelsea have a midfield of Kante and Makelele
