SPORTbible Pick Their Premier League Teams Of The Season
The Premier League season ended on Sunday and that's led everyone to pick their Team of the Season and that's no different at SPORTbible HQ and some of us have picked our teams.
Liverpool saw out their incredible season to reach 99 points, the second most ever in a Premier League season, and finished off with a difference of 18 points to second place Manchester City, the second biggest gap, so it's no surprise that there's a high Liverpool contingent in our teams.
Golden glove winner Ederson and runner up Nick Pope are both also popular picks in our teams and up front Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy as well as runners up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Danny Ings also end up in many of our teams.
Surprisingly Mo Salah, fifth in the scoring, has only been picked by one of us, but more on that later.
Whilst I'm running down some of the teams it's only fair to remind everyone of some of our predictions from the beginning of the season:
Nasir Jabbar - Editorial - Like the rest of us Nas picked City to win the league, no harm done there. He did predict Burnley, Sheffield United and Brighton to go down and all three proved him wrong.
The additions of Wolves' Raul Jimenez and the Blades' John Fleck certainly give his team a different look to most.
Josh Lawless - Editorial - Josh picked Norwich City to go down so he got one of his selections correct but his the Canaries made sure his pick of Spurs to win the FA Cup was left looking foolish.
Lawless picked an all Liverpool back four and an all English front two in the shape of Vardy and Ings.
Daniel Marland - Editorial - Dan wasn't with us back in August 2018 to make any predictions but he tells me that he definitely expected Jurgen Klopp's side to finish on 99 points, and I've no proof to say he's wrong.

Bruno Ferdnandes' impact on Manchester United in the second half of the season earns him a place in Marland's midfield and at the back James Tarkowski makes an appearance.
Joe - Video editor - Again Joe also didn't make any predictions back in August but as a big fan of Jamie Vardy's work he'd have backed him as the top scorer. However backing Liverpool to retain the Champions League wouldn't have gone in his favour.
Kenneford was impressed enough with Caglar Soyuncu's season replacing Harry Maguire and Jack Grealish's almost single handed effort to keep Villa up.
James Parrott- Social editor - James thought Arsenal were going to finish in the top four, and the less said about that the better. He did pick City to continue their tradition in the Carabao Cup though and the Gunners could redeem his optimism with a win against Chelsea at Wembley, as he also picked them to win the FA Cup.
Paz's biggest surprise in his team of the season is the addition of Wolves full back Matt Doherty, actually it's a surprise there weren't more Wolves players included throughout.
Ryan Sidle (that's me) - Editorial - Complete an utter nightmare with predictions. Manchester United's place in the top four was as far as I got for a halfway decent shout. Newcastle did not go down, Liverpool were miles from the FA Cup. Hoping Juventus win the Champions League at this point.
Picking my team last, I decided to pick a side based only on players the others hadn't picked. Quite frankly it was a bit of a shock no one had picked Harry Kane or Mohamed Salah so they went straight in.
The likes of Allan Saint-Maximin, Dwight McNeil and Harvey Barnes could count themselves a little unlucky not to be picked, and Michail Antonio's late season form is worth a mention, why not ey.
