The Best XI From Europe's Top Five Leagues Has Been Revealed With Some Shock Omissions
The best XI from Europe's top five leagues combined this season has been revealed with a number of established stars missing out.
WhoScored have put together the side and it's clear to see that it's the younger generation who have taken 2019/2020 by storm.
Sensational talents such as Kylian Mbappe and Jadon Sancho are included while established names like Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar are omitted.
Check out the entire team below.
Wojciech Szczęsny (Juventus) - 7.14 average rating
Ricardo Pereira (Leicester City) - 7.50 average rating
Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool) - 7.40 average rating

Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund) - 7.90 average rating
Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) - 8.16 average rating
Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) - 8.14 average rating
Despite a season which was initially plagued by injuries, Lionel Messi still manages to stand out as the highest rated player in the team.
The Argentine won his sixth Ballon d'Or back in December and is still Barcelona's key man as they look to win La Liga ahead of fierce rival Real Madrid.
Virgil van Dijk's inclusion in central defence isn't a shock but it's another defender who takes top ranking.
That right belongs to Bayern Munich teenager Alphonso Davies who rose onto the scene as a tricky winger but he has slotted in at left-back with ease.
One key performance came against Chelsea in the Champions League when his electric pace was too much for the Blues to handle.
Lewandowski's first goal in the knockout stages in two years!

Kylian Mbappe's inclusion in teams like this are likely what we're going to see for at least the next decade and maybe even longer.
The Frenchman has lit up Ligue 1 again for PSG and surely isn't far off being viewed as one of the world's best.
Who do you think is unlucky to miss out on team of the season so far?
