The PFA Team of the Year has been released this morning, and unsurprisingly it’s dominated by players from the two best teams over the course of the season, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. The first and second placed teams in the table currently each had four players named, while lone representatives from Manchester United, Liverpool, and Everton round out the eleven.
The four Chelsea players selected are David Luiz (for the first time ever), N’Golo Kanté (for the second), Gary Cahill (for the third), and Eden Hazard, who’s been named to the team in all but one of his five seasons in England. It’s not quite the dominance like in 2014-15 when Chelsea saw six players named (Ivanović, Terry, Cahill, Matić, Hazard, Costa), but it’s pretty close.
