The PFA team of the year was announced on Sunday evening and, for the first time since 1990, there were no Manchester United players included. No great surprise really considering the disastrous campaign they have endured; a season which cost David Moyes his job.
And, like 1990, the team had a very Liverpool feel about it with captain Steven Gerrard picked in the midfield and Luis Suarez, voted the player of the year, up front alongside clubmate Daniel Sturridge. The two have scored a remarkable 50 league goals between them this term.
The voting process in the PFA awards is a flawed one and attracts derision every season but, on this occasion, there are few glaring errors in the XI selected by the players. But GiveMeSport has picked an alternative XI of players anyway, with the only selection rule being that they players did not make the PFA team.
