Kevin De Bruyne Picks His Premier League Team Of The Season
If you were wondering who Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne picked in his Premier League Team Of The Season, then you've absolutely come to the right place.
A few weeks back, a day after he played a starring role in City's final day 5-0 drubbing of Watford, the Premier League's top assister sat down with SPORTbible, and using EA Sports' 'Concept Squad' feature on FIFA Ultimate Team, talked us through his selections.
The 25-year old opted to pick the exact same team he submitted when asked to pick his Team of the Year by the PFA - meaning there was no place for any of his City teammates as rules mean players are not able to choose any of their colleagues.
But still, KDB's XI is packed with star quality all over the pitch.
Watch the Belgian justify his selections in the following clip:
As you'll see in the above video, De Bruyne opted for a 4-3-3 formation, and went for Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in between the sticks.
At the back, he picked his former Chelsea teammate Cesar Azpilicueta, instrumental in the club's title-winning campaign under Antonio Conte, at right-back despite the Spaniard figuring as a centre-back for the vast majority of the season.
