Manchester City players dominate PFA Team of the Year

Five Manchester City players have been named in the Professional Footballers' Association Premier League Team of the Year.

He has been good, don't get us wrong, but in another injury-hampered season for the Argentine would his colleagues Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane or Liverpool's Roberto Firmino have been a better choice?

"Yeah, I think if you can choose nobody from our team, I think he [Salah] deserves it", he told NBC Sports.

Vertonghen, without usual partner Toby Alderweireld for much of the season, has featured in 13 of Tottenham's 14 Premier League clean sheets this season, demonstrating his importance to manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Despite Pep Guardiola's team's dominance of the league, there are more star-studded names throughout the squad.

Liverpool Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah has claimed that his side are going to fight to win the Premier League title next season.

Tottenham were the only other team to have more than one representative, boasting three players in defender Jan Vertonghen, midfielder Christian Eriksen and striker Harry Kane.

Kane (25 goals) and Aguero (21 goals) are second and third on the league scoring chart.

Egypt global and Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah, continues to rake in accolades for a blistering first season with the Anfield side.

Aguero, who will miss the rest of the season after knee surgery, became City's all-time leading goalscorer this term and he is now just one away from 200 strikes for the club after another typically prolific campaign.
