How the PFA Team of the Year should have looked according to stats including West Ham, Everton and Newcastle United stars

The official PFA Team of the Season has caused outrage in some quarters as fans have unsurprisingly queried the inclusion and/or admission of their favourite stars.

Manchester City and Liverpool’s thrilling battle for Premier League supremacy has unsurprisingly led to the teams to dominate the official XI.

England forward Raheem Sterling is among six City representatives while fellow Britons Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson are two of four inclusions from Liverpool.

However, Mohamed Salah is not among that number while Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard is also a surprise omission, despite being on the six-man shortlist for the Players’ Player of the Year award.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is surprisingly the only member of the XI, which was voted for by their fellow players, not to feature for the top-two clubs battling for the title.

Statistically speaking, Hazard has enjoyed his best ever season at Stamford Bridge after leading Belgium to a World Cup semi-final.
