Alexis Sanchez, David Silva, Zlatan... here's an alternative PFA Team of the Year shortlist based on angry tweets
Always controversial, here are 11 other players who could have made the team.
When has the PFA’s Premier League Team of the Year ever NOT sparked outrage?
The 2016/17 edition is no different. Chelsea and Tottenham contributed four players each, and even their fans weren’t entirely happy.
Here’s an alternative line-up, based on irate social media…
Tom Heaton – Burnley
Tom Heaton would have been a decent shout to be fair – with 17 more saves than any other goalie this season, he’s been essential to Burnley’s survival.
No arguments here.
Marcos Alonso – Chelsea
Lots of people had lots of questions about lots of players.
Danny Rose was awarded the position despite injury ruling him out of the last nine games.
Toby Alderweireld – Tottenham
Ah, Toby Alderweireld – where are you? Not in the team of the year, that’s for sure.
The crying with laughter emoji proved a popular one.
Jan Vertonghen – Tottenham
This Twitter user can’t take the list seriously, not without Jan Vertonghen involved.
No Jan? Laughable stuff.
Antonio Valencia – Manchester United
Kyle Walker got a little bit of stick over his inclusion – is he better than Antonio Valencia?
Walker’s deserving of his place in our opinion.
David Silva – Manchester City
No place for Manchester City’s little magician David Silva either.
Ander Herrera – Manchester United
Ander Herrera gets a place in our alternative team for this tweet alone, referencing his great work in keeping Eden Hazard quiet at the weekend.
Kevin De Bruyne – Manchester City
This Twitter user DEMANDS to know where Kevin De Bruyne is.
He’s probably at training.
Alexis Sanchez – Arsenal
We make this 12 crying with laughter emojis in Alexis Sanchez’s favour.
They make a strong case.
Sergio Aguero – Manchester City
Sergio Aguero meanwhile can probably expect not to make the team these days.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Manchester United
And last but certainly not least, Zlatan Ibrahimovic wouldn’t have looked out of place in the side.
Maybe next year, Zlatan.
