Fans Aren't Happy With One Pick For The PFA Team Of The Season
Award season is well and truly upon us so it's time to get the arguments for your favourite players everyone. We've kicked off with the PFA Team of the Season and the inclusion of Marcos Alonso in particular hasn't gone down too well.
In previous seasons there's often been one standout player who is almost a sure thing to win the Premier League Player of the Season award but this year everyone is split between Mo Salah and Kevin de Bruyne.
In the red corner is the unstoppable goal machine who has helped all but secure Liverpool Champions League football for next season and in the blue corner is the Belgian who makes the Premier League champions tick.
There's excellent arguments for both but who are the players who have performed well away from them? Well David de Gea obviously gets the number one spot for actually making Manchester United's defence look at least half competent.
It's a pretty solid team however some are questioning a few of the selections, in particular Chelsea left back Marcos Alonso:
Andrew Robertson and Ashley Young were much more worthy of the left-back spot on the TOTY. Not sure how Alonso's made it there.- Jordan Clarke (@FourFourJordan) April 18, 2018
Name me a better LB in the league THIS season than Ashley Young? Arguably Davies from Spurs, but no chance Alonso is in there.- Red Devil Chronicle (@wefollowunited) April 18, 2018
How on earth has Alonso made TOTY ahead of Robertson? Disgraceful- - (@Coutinho14i) April 18, 2018
Marcos Alonso is in the TOTY because he scored some free kicks- Jimmy (@EntireDesign_) April 18, 2018
Alonso:joy: Robertson and Davies have been much better- Shaun Matthews (@Shaun6549) April 18, 2018
- Marco Alonso made the PFA TOTY cause of some free kicks he scored ye?- Proposition Joe. :panda_face: (@Habe_b) April 18, 2018
Monreal has had a much better season than Marcos Alonso, don't @ me- Lewis (@LGAmbrose) April 18, 2018
Of course most fans are a little biased that their left-back isn't in but there's no doubt that the likes of Andrew Robertson, Ashley Young and Ben Davies could argue they've had better seasons.
Elsewhere it's somehow the first season that Sergio Aguero has actually got into the team, in a season where he could easily be replaced by either of his teammates Raheem Sterling or Leroy Sane.
My biggest problem is that team just isn't balanced enough, where's the defensive central midfielder!
