The PFA Team of the Year has reportedly been leaked online.

The nominees for both PFA Player of the Year and the Young Player of the Year were released last week with the winners set to be announced at a ceremony in May.

But the 11 players that have made the Team of the Year have been revealed.

The team is not set to be officially announced until Sunday but we’re fairly certain that this is the actual 11 players that will be named.

David de Gea beats the likes of Jack Butland and Kasper Schmeichel to be named as the ‘keeper.

Despite being snubbed as a nominee in Young Player of the Year, Hector Bellerin is selected at right-back while north London rival Danny Rose gets the nod at left-back.

Leicester’s Wes Morgan has beaten his teammate Robert Huth to partner Toby Alderweireld in the central defence.

It gets interesting in midfield. With four midfielders - Dimitri Payet, Mesut Ozil, N’Golo Kante, Riyad Mahrez - being named in the PFA Player of the Year list and three midfielders - Dele Alli, Philippe Coutinho and Ross Barkley - in the Young Player of the Year nominees, there was always going to be some big players missing out.

But, Leicester duo Mahrez and Kante are in the XI, along with Alli and Payet.

Unsurprisingly, the two strikers are Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane with the English pair scoring 46 goals between them in the Premier League this season.

In truth, the only notable absentee is Arsenal’s Ozil. The German midfielder has scored six goals and registered 18 assists - just two off Thierry Henry’s record - in an impressive individual campaign.

It also means that Sergio Aguero has missed out on the Team of the Year for a fifth time in the same week that he scored his 100th Premier League goal. He has scored the same amount of goals as Vardy this campaign but, once again, was left out of the list of nominees.

No Aguero...again

His manager, Manuel Pellegrini couldn’t understand how the Argentine hadn’t earned a place in the Team of the Year.

“Really, I don’t know. I don’t know who chooses the best players, what the different reasons might be,” he told reporters, per The Mirror.

“In other seasons, maybe people didn’t vote for him because of the injuries. But he’s demonstrated in every game that he deserves to be there."
