Premier League Best XI without Manchester City players
The Premier League has thrilled fans across the globe in yet another riveting season. Manchester City have been champions-elect for most of the season after a blistering start to the campaign where they went on a 19-game winning streak and they've wrapped up the title with 5 games to spare.
Elsewhere, teams are fiercely jostling for positions as spots in Europe are up for grabs. Avoiding relegation is the main motive for the teams at the lower end of the table.
Manchester City has dominated the season from start to finish and their players have performed at a ridiculously high-level week after week. This has resulted in quite a few of their players being named in the PFA Team of the Year. Here in this article, we take a look at an alternative Team of the season that doesn't include any of the players who have been crowned champions on the blue side of Manchester.
Goalkeeper: David de Gea (Manchester United)
Matches: 34, Clean Sheets: 17, Goals Conceded: 26, Saves: 108
With Manuel Neuer injured and missing for most of the season, David de Gea has cemented his place as the best goalkeeper in the world. His heroics between the sticks have put the Red Devils on course for a runners-up finish.
He has been head and shoulders above the rest of the keepers in the Premier League and tops the list for the most clean-sheets this season with 17 shutouts to his name.
His incredible displays have seen him named as one of the six nominees for the PFA Player of the Year and also in the PFA Team of the Year. The Spaniard will also have his eyes set on claiming the elusive Golden Glove award for the first time in seven seasons in the league.
He is likely to win the club's Player of the Year award for a record fourth time and United fans all over the world will be praying that Real Madrid don't come hunting for their prized asset again in the summer.
Unlucky to miss out: Nick Pope (Burnley)
