Five Manchester City players have been named in the Professional Footballers’ Association Premier League Team of the Year.
Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Nicolas Otamendi, David Silva and Kyle Walker have all been included after Pep Guardiola’s side clinched the Premier League title with five games to spare.

Spurs were the only other team to have more than one player representing the club as Jan Veronghen, Christian Eriksen and striker Harry Kane made it through to the list.
Surprisingly, Manchester United and Chelsea only saw one player each making it to the voting list as Marcos Alonso and David De Gea represented Chelsea and United respectively.
Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah who is on top of his game scoring 30 league goals this season is inclusive.
There was, though, no recognition for any Burnley players, despite the Clarets enjoying a fine season and challenging Arsenal for sixth place, which could yet see them secure European qualification.
The winner is set to be announced at the PFA’s annual awards ceremony in London on Sunday, April 22.
PFA Premier League Team of the Year: David De Gea, Kyle Walker, Jan Vertonghen, Nicolas Otamendi, Marcos Alonso, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Christian Eriksen, Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero.
