Klopp: Salah deserved a place in Team of the Year

City provide six of the 11 players - goalkeeper Ederson, centre-half Aymeric Laporte, midfielders Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho and forwards Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling.

Virgil van Dijk is set to win the PFA Players' Player of the Year award after an incredible 2018/19 season with Liverpool.

Whilst the title is still up in the air, Van Dijk secured more votes than the City forward from his fellow professionals after conceding just 20 goals in 36 games so far - the best in the league.

Chelsea have reacted to Eden Hazard's non-inclusion in the PFA's Premier League Team of the Year released on Thursday, April 25, with the Stamford Bridge dwellers issuing a statement.

As such, Lijnders has lauded the abilities of Van Dijk by admitting he is an invaluable asset to have due to his capabilities in the air and the ability to play out from the back.

Van Dijk will succeed Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah after the Egyptian won it in 2017/18 with a record-breaking scoring season.

Liverpool fans would have been hoping for a favour from Barnes and his Burnley teammates, who took on Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

For now though the night and the season belong to Van Dijk, the first defender to be named Players' Player of the Year since John Terry in 2005.

The destination of the Premier League title may have had a huge impact on who won this award but for some freakish reason, the PFA make players vote with around ten games left of the season! I couldn't get near him.
