On Thursday morning, the Professional Football Association named the XI of Premier League players that have most impressed since the start of the season.

Dele Alli and N'golo Kante are rewarded with places in the centre of the park, with Eden Hazard on the left.

Sanchez was included on the six-man shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award but - like Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic - has failed to make the cut for the team itself.

Tottenham's Kyle Walker who chucked in 5 goals as a right wing back and has also put up an inspiring display this term was chosen ahead of the Nigerian in the official PFA Team of the year albeit in a 4-4-2 formation.

It was inevitable. The PFA Team of the Year was announced and, despite being an excellent side, that most would happily back to represent the finest Premier League stars of the season, there was still some harrumphing and snorts of derision.

United goalkeeper David de Gea is the only player from his side in the line-up, while Chelsea and Spurs have four representatives each, and Liverpool and Everton have one each.
