There is it. The PFA Team of the Year for 2018, brought to us in conjunction with Panini stickers.
Quite honestly, it’s difficult to pick fault with any of the selections, though the crowbarring of players into a contrived formation still baffles us. Why not just pick the 11 best players, regardless of position? Especially as it usually means defensive midfielders tend to miss out.
Here it is again, this time in text form…
GK | David De Gea
RB | Kyle Walker
CB | Jan Vertonghen
CB | Nicolas Otamendi
LB | Marcos Alonso
MID | David Silva
MID | Kevin De Bruyne
MID | Christian Eriksen
FWD | Harry Kane
FWD | Mohamed Salah
FWD | Sergio Aguero
This also marks the very first time has ever Sergio Aguero has been named in a PFA Team of the Year, despite him scoring 143 goals in the space of 206 appearances.
Just one of the those quirks that was probably overdue an addressing, even if Aguero hasn’t exactly had a proper ‘vintage’ campaign by his previous standards.
That said, maybe Leroy Sane was more deserving?
