The Official PFA Team Of The Year Has Been Announced And It's Very Tough To Argue With

The Official PFA Team Of The Year Has Been Announced And It's Very Tough To Argue With
By Mikey Traynor

This year's PFA Team Of The Year has been more highly anticipated than any in recent memory considering the extremely unusual Premier League campaign that has taken place this time around.

The emergence as Leicester City and Spurs as the front runners (and now the only runners) in a title chase has thrown the ideas that we had come to accept as a given up in the air, and with the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Dimitri Payet stealing the headlines week after week, it became clear that this year the team picked to represent the best players in a given position in the league would be rather unusual.

And considering that there are no Chelsea, Man City, or Liverpool players and just the one Arsenal player, a right-back, and one Man United player, a goalkeeper, it certainly is unusual in that sense, but at the same time, very little argument can be had over the selections.


Danny Rose at left-back was probably the least secure of his place going into the event, but he has had a fantastic season under Pochettino and deserves his place in the PFA selection.

De Gea was a no brainer, as was the inclusion of Alderweireld, Kante, Mahrez, Payet, Alli, Kane, and Vardy. While it certainly is harsh on Sergio Aguero, he has just missed too much of the season due to injury and also is paying the price for his Man City teammates struggling to keep up with the competition.
