In our brand new feature, the Goal.com team picks a Best XI from the first four rounds of matches in the Malaysian Super League
Malaysian Super League's Best XI from Round 1-4

Formation: 4-4-2

Goalkeeper - Sharbinee Allawee

Terengganu FA

Sharbinee Alawee has been a source of stability for Terengganu FA so far this season. Despite a shaky start against Perak, Sharbinee has since asserted himself steadily, being a calm presence behind the Terengganu backline. He has only conceded two goals so far, keeping a clean sheet against Felda United and Sarawak.

Right-back - Abdul Aziz Ismail

Kelantan FA

Kelantan are currently the only unbeaten side in the Malaysian Super League and a huge credit has to be given towards Abdul Aziz Ismail. The hardworking defender has been terrific for the Red Warriors, while also injecting pace when going forward on that right flank. Impressed in the victories over LionsXII and Kedah FA.

Centre-back - Baihakki Khaizan


Baihakki Khaizan has been a regular fixture in the LionsXII backline so far and even managed to open his team's Malaysia Super League account with a well-placed header in the 2-1 defeat to Kelantan at Jalan Besar Stadium. His commanding performance at the back has also helped the LionsXII to a draw and two consecutive wins despite injuries and suspensions to the team.

Centre-back - Muslim Ahmad

Terengganu FA

Joining from Harimau Muda during the off-season, Muslim Ahmad came in highly regarded. So far this season, he appears to be living up to expectations being placed on him and has looked unbeatable alongside Marzuki Yusof in the Turtles' defence.

Left-back - Khairul Ismail

Johor FC

Although Johor FC have not had a flattering start to the Super League season, Khairul Ismail has certainly impressed at left back. He has been an inspirational skipper for K. Devan's side and his performances have not gone unnoticed as K. Rajagopal handed him a call-up to the national team earlier this week.


Right midfield - Ashaari Shamsuddin

Terengganu FA

The creative midfielder has definitely picked up from where he left last year as Ashaari Shamsuddin has been crucial for Terengganu so far. He starred in their 3-0 win over Felda United, scoring two goals and was equally magnificent against Sarawak and T-Team, with his impeccable runs off the ball causing problems.

Centre midfield - Michal Kubala

Perak FA

Michal Kubala's performances for Perak have certainly not gone unnoticed. The Slovakian exploded in the opening match against Terengganu, scoring a brilliant long range goal that proved to be the winner. Since then, he has asserted himself in the middle of the park alongside Shahrulnizam Mustapha, influencing most of Perak's offensive play.

Centre midfield - Zairo Anuar Zailani

T-Team FC

T-Team have had a surprising season so far and it would be unfair to not credit Zairo Anuar Zailani for his influence. The inspirational midfielder has been in scintillating form of late, scoring two against Kuala Lumpur and also netting a penalty in the loss to Terengganu. His superb control in midfield has been essential for T-Team this season. Currently leads the Super League goalscoring charts with four strikes.

Left midfield - Yong Kuong Yong

Felda United FC

The young winger was a revelation with Kuala Lumpur in the Super League last season and due to financial crisis, he was shipped out to Felda United this year. But nonetheless, his performances for E.Elavarasan's side have been impressive. Yong was key in their 2-0 win over Sabah and was equally decisive in scoring the winner against rivals Selangor in the Klang Valley derby.

Striker - Norshahrul Idlan Talaha

Kelantan FA

Despite the arrival of Mohammed Ghaddar and Dennis Antwi, Norshahrul Idlan Talaha has been the real mastermind behind Kelantan's offensive moves. His pace and trickery upfront has seen him score 3 goals this season. 2011's Most Valuable Player in Malaysia is definitely hitting the strides impressively this year.

Striker - Jean-Emmanuel Effa Owona

Negeri Sembilan FA

So much has been said about the quality of foreign signings in the Premier League this season, but Jean-Emmanuel Effa Owona is probably the best of the lot. The Cameroon forward has been a revelation for Negeri Sembilan this year, notching up five goals, including two in the Charity Shield triumph over Kelantan.
