N'Golo Kante was his holding midfielder, with Heung-Min Son getting the nod over Mo Salah.

Neville, meanwhile, opted for Edouard Mendy in goal courtesy of an impressive first season at Chelsea - as well as England pair Kyle Walker and Harry Maguire in defence.

Ilkay Gundogan's contributions for Manchester City sees him earn a deserved spot in central midfield, with Marcus Rashford playing on the left in a strong team.

Of course, the two then got into a min-debate over which side would win - Neville "100 per cent" adamant that his team would emerge victorious.

Both went for Pep Guardiola as manager of the season as he closes in on a third Premier League title in the last four campaigns, but Neville said he would change his choice to Thomas Tuchel if the German guides Chelsea to a Champions League and FA Cup double having been appointed in January.

The duo also agreed that Dias is the league's player of the year in his imperious debut term, while Foden was named the best young player of 2020/21.

Edinson Cavani and Tomas Soucek were Neville and Carragher's respective signings of the seasons - completing the final Monday Night Football episode of the season.
