The one other spot is not taken up by Harry Kane or Christian Eriksen, or any of the Wolves players who are sat in seventh in the Premier League.

Paul Pogba Named in PFA Team of the Year: Twitter Reactions




Who votes for the team of the year?

Amazingly, it is fellow professionals who vote for the team of the year. Despite having a few good games this season and scoring penalties, Paul Pogba certainly does not deserve to be in this team ahead of the likes of Eriksen, Bernardo Silva or even Joao Moutinho.

The votes are cast a few weeks in advance of the announcement so there is the argument that Pogba was in a good run of form, just after Solskjaer took over the managerial position at Manchester United, however, on the season as a whole, there is no way the Frenchman should be in this side.
