John Terry's PFA Team of the Year shows how much the Premier League has changed in 12 months

This time last year Chelsea were riding high and seemingly on course for years of dominance under returning hero Jose Mourinho.

The Blues won the Premier League title and to highlight their dominance, also had six players selected in the PFA Team of the Year. And while the Chelsea squad included a few veterans like John Terry, the nucleus of the side was young enough to suggest that the team would be fighting for glory for years to come.

But after the performances of most of their star players nose-dived at the start of this season - resulting in the sacking of Mourinho - Chelsea's place at the summit of the table was taken by Leicester City.

The underdog outfit are seven points clear of Spurs in second and if Terry's selection is anything to go by, the Foxes could be even more dominant in this season's PFA Team of the Year than Chelsea were last year.

It is hard to argue with Terry's choices but it is striking that a year after winning the league in such powerful fashion, Chelsea are likely to be shut out entirely from the end of year all-star team.
