97 chances created - the most in Europe - speaks for itself. The Everton full-back might be a surprise choice here, but this team is all about compromises. 

Porto left-back Alex Sandro was under consideration, but ultimately, we felt their was another star in the Liga Sagres who was more deserving.

And Baines is a superb player, a threat at set-pieces, a limpet-like defender and a workaholic. He's had a fine season, and is an excellent Premier League representative.
