PFA Premier League Team Of The Year Released

Cristiano Ronaldo has been included in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year but there is no place for Spurs' Heung-Min Son.

Ronaldo, having sealed a dream return to Manchester United in the summer, scored 18 goals in 30 games in his first season back in the English top flight after 12 years away at Real Madrid and Juventus.


The five-time Ballon d'Or winner takes the central striker spot in the XI, though controversially at the expense of Son, who scored 23 goals and won the Golden Boot.

The team, lining up in a 4-3-3 formation, features six players from Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, who won two domestic trophies.

Golden Boot, top assister and PFA Players' Player of the Year award winner Mo Salah is included alongside Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara and Sadio Mane.

Three of Manchester City's title-winning heroes deservedly earn a place, with Kevin De Bruyne, Joao Cancelo and Bernardo Silva all shining as Pep Guardiola's side won the league for the fourth time in five seasons following a dramatic comeback against Aston Villa on the final day.

De Bruyne in particular stepped up to the mark with big goals and performances - including that ridiculous four-goal haul against Wolves in the business end of the season.

Antonio Rudiger's impressive final campaign for Chelsea before his free transfer to Real Madrid saw him make the side for the first time in his career.

Here is the team in full:

Alisson - Liverpool

Trent Alexander-Arnold - Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk - Liverpool

Antonio Rüdiger - Chelsea

João Cancelo - Manchester City

Kevin De Bruyne - Manchester City

Thiago Alcântara - Liverpool
