Paul Pogba will be named in the PFA Team of the Year

Paul Pogba has had an underwhelming season.

The Frenchman was poor for the first few months under Jose Mourinho.

He managed to turn around his form when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge in December.

Pogba scored eight goals and claimed seven assists in the Norwegian’s first 11 games in the Premier League.

However, like many of Man United’s players, his form has plummeted in the past month or so.

Pogba’s attitude has come in for criticism as United have lost seven of their last nine games.

He was poor once again as United were defeated 2-0 by Manchester City on Wednesday night.

However, while there has been a lot of negativity about Pogba in recent weeks, some good news is about to come his way.

According to the Times, Pogba is set to be named in the PFA Team of the Year.

He will be the only non Liverpool or Manchester City player to be included in the team, which will be announced on Thursday.

Despite coming under criticism from numerous pundits, his fellow Premier League players clearly think his performances have been good enough to be rewarded.

This will be the first time he has been named in the team of the year.

While Pogba’s name is surprising, a number of exclusions will also raise eyebrows.

View the Team of the Year, as per Matt Lawton of the Daily Mail, below:

Eden Hazard is set to be left out.

Many think that the Belgian winger has had his best season in the Premier League yet.

He has scored 16 times and recorded 13 assists and was named in the six-man shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award.

However, he has missed out on the team of the year.

Son Heung-min’s exclusion is another eyebrow raiser, having been outstanding for Spurs this season.
