PFA Premier League Team of the Season: Who Would You Have Picked?

Congratulations to Gareth Bale and Jack Wilshere for being named PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year respectively. One story that was overlooked though was that The Professional Footballers’ Association also named their Premier League Team of the Season. Here are the eleven they selected:

Van der Sar

Sagna   Kompany   Vidic   Cole

Nani   Nasri   Wilshere   Bale

Tevez   Berbatov

While some of the players justifiably deserve to be listed in the above team, I would choose West Ham United’s Scott Parker over Wilshere. The young Arsenal midfielder has had his best season yet for the Gunners but Parker has been instrumental for the Hammers. Parker has carried West Ham for most of the season. Up front, I would have selected Javier Hernandez over Dimitar Berbatov. The Bulgarian is having a fantastic season, but I would argue that Chicharito has been more influential to United’s season than Berbatov has.

What do you think? If you were one of the PFA members, what would your PFA team of the season have been? Post your opinion in the comments section below.
