Man Utd top PFA Team of the Year selections over last 10 years

A focus on the PFA Teams of the year over the last decade.

Title rivals Chelsea and Tottenham have four players each in this season’s PFA Premier League Team of the Year, a tally matched by promoted Brighton in the Championship.

Here, PA Sport cast a statistical eye over the last 10 years of the PFA teams.

PREMIER LEAGUE

2016/17 team: David de Gea, Kyle Walker, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Danny Rose, Dele Alli, Eden Hazard, N’Golo Kante, Sadio Mane, Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku.

  • Manchester United lead all clubs with 25 PREMIER LEAGUE selections over the past 10 years, including goalkeeper David de Gea this season.
  • Four selections apiece take Chelsea to 19 and see Tottenham, now with 15, leapfrog Arsenal (12) for third place.
  • Sadio Mane’s selection makes Liverpool the fifth team to reach double figures for the Premier League over the last 10 years.
  • In all, 14 clubs have been represented in the last 10 Premier League teams of the year.

CHAMPIONSHIP

2016/17 team: David Stockdale, Bruno Saltor, Lewis Dunk, Jamaal Lascelles, Ryan Sessegnon, Tom Cairney, Anthony Knockaert, Aaron Mooy, Jonjo Shelvey, Dwight Gayle, Chris Wood.

  • Burnley lead the way with nine selections over the decade.
  • Promoted Brighton and second-placed Newcastle have four and three selections respectively this season, taking both into the Championship’s top five for the 10-year period – Newcastle have seven in all, the same as Leicester and Cardiff, while Brighton have six.

LEAGUE ONE

2016/17 team: Simon Moore, Kieron Freeman, Mark Beevers, David Wheater, James Meredith, Mark Duffy, John Fleck, Josh Morris, Erhun Oztumer, Billy Sharp, James Vaughan.

 

  • Sheffield United doubled their League One haul to 10 this season, the only double-figure tally in any individual division outside the Premier League.
  • Southampton are next in that chart on eight, and their players have also made three appearances in each of the Premier League and Championship. England midfielder Adam Lallana, now with Liverpool, was voted in for all three divisions during his time with the Saints.

LEAGUE TWO

2016/17 team: Luke McCormick, Kelvin Mellor, Sonny Bradley, Christian Burgess, Enda Stevens, Nicky Adams, Luke Berry, James Coppinger, Graham Carey, Danny Hylton, John Marquis.

  • Chesterfield top the League Two charts with eight appearances. They will have an unwanted chance to add to that total next season after being relegated from League One.
  • League Two sees the most different clubs represented, 38 against 36 in League One and 33 in the Championship.

Brighton seal promotion as Leeds drop out of play-offs places

Brighton sealed promotion to the Premier League, and moved a step closer to winning the SkyBet Championship, after beating Wigan 2-1 at a jubilant Amex Stadium.

The win was enough to spark jubilant scenes at the Amex Stadium, but their elevation to the top table was not confirmed mathematically until Huddersfield drew 1-1 at Derby in the late kick-off.

Jacob Butterfield’s 88th-minute equaliser was enough to cancel out Collin Quaner’s effort and formalise the Seagulls celebration party.

Glenn Murray had opened the scoring for Chris Hughton’s side eight minutes before half-time, his 22nd goal of the campaign and fifth in as many games at home.

England Under-21 international Solly March ensured the celebrations could continue in earnest when he converted Anthony Knockaert’s cutback and a late goal from substitute Nick Powell could not change the picture.

Newcastle, league leaders for so long, slipped to seven points behind the Seagulls as they took their winless run to three matches with a 3-1 reverse at Ipswich.

Freddie Sears put the hosts ahead just before half-time, but when former Tractor Boy Daryl Murphy levelled in the second half the Magpies had a chance to switch their fortunes.

Instead they conceded twice more, David McGoldrick and Emyr Huws the scorers.

Gianfranco Zola’s brief and forgettable stint at Birmingham ended after a 2-0 defeat at home to Burton left Blues two places and three points clear of the drop.

Burton leapfrogged their opponents in the table after Lloyd Dyer and Lucas Akins hit the net and Zola’s 22-game reign came to an end within minutes of the final whistle.

In the play-off picture wins for Reading, Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham saw Leeds edged out of the top six.

Reading went behind to relegated Rotherham, Tom Adeyemi on target, but hit back in the second half.

First Lewis Grabban then John Swift beat Richard O’Donnell to seal the points with a 2-1 win.

Wednesday won by the same margin at QPR, Adam Reach and Daniel Pudil notching either side of Idrissa Sylla’s equaliser.

Fulham enjoyed a straightforward outing at home to Aston Villa, who slumped 3-1 after playing 68 minutes with 10 men.

Ryan Sessegnon gave the Cottagers the lead after hitting the crossbar and, although Jack Grealish restored parity following Jonathan Kodija’s red card, the result never seemed in doubt.

Sone Aluko and Neeskens Kebano settled matters as the numerical disadvantage came to bear in the second period.

All of that spelled bad news for Garry Monk’s Leeds, who were turned over at Elland Road when Wolves striker Nouha Dicko grabbed the only goal of the game.

Blackburn salvaged a draw from Bristol City’s trip to Ewood Park, Sam Gallagher cancelling out Tammy Abraham’s effort, but they remain third bottom and deep in trouble.

Norwich defeated Preston 3-1 at Deepdale, but neither side can now hope to crack the play-offs.

Graham Dorrans and Josh Murphy gave the Canaries a first-half cushion before Tommy Spurr and James Maddison traded strikes.

Aron Gunnarsson gave Cardiff a 1-0 win over struggling Nottingham Forest and Brentford drew 1-1 at Barnsley as Florian Jozefzoon and Marley Watkins scored.
