No Toon Players (As Expected)

Manchester City and Liverpool's battle for Premier League supremacy has unsurprisingly led to the teams dominating the Professional Footballers' Association top-flight Team of the Year 2019.

England forward Raheem Sterling is among six City representatives while fellow Britons Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson are two of four inclusions from Liverpool.

None from Newcastle ... but Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is the only member of the XI, which was voted for by their fellow players, not to feature for the top-two clubs battling for the title.

However, Mohamed Salah is not among that number while Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard is also a surprise omission, despite being on the six-man shortlist for the Players' Player of the Year award.

Goalkeeper: Ederson (Manchester City)

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City), Andy Robertson (Liverpool)

Midfielders: Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), Fernandinho (Manchester City)

Forwards: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Sadio Mane (Liverpool).
