SIX Chelsea stars named in Team of the Season


Recommended Posts

No fewer than six Chelsea players have been named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Season.

Striking sensation Diego Costa - scorer of 19 Premier League goals in just 23 appearances - is joined by Tottenham's Harry Kane in a two-man attack.

Nemanja Matic and Eden Hazard consist of half of a four-man midfield, which also features Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, who has enjoyed a magnificent debut season under Arsene Wenger.

Joining them in midfield is the somewhat surprising selection of Phillipe Coutinho, who seems to have been chosen on the basis of being the best of a par bunch at Liverpool, who have endured a torrid end to a promising campaign.

Coutinho, despite a handful of excellent performances, frankly should be nowhere near that line-up considering the form of Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas, Arsenal's Santi Cazorla, Southampton's Morgan Schneiderlin and even Swansea's Glyfi Sigurdsson, who have all had outstanding seasons.

Three Blues stars feature in the defence - unsurprising given that Chelsea have the joint best defensive record in the division - with John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic all chosen; the latter of which a surprise considering the consistency of Southampton's Nat Clyne.

Despite an excellent season, Cesar Azpilicueta was overlooked in favour of former Blues full-back Ryan Bertrand, whilst David de Gea is rightfully elected as the outstanding goalkeeper of the year.

There is no place for the likes of Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and David Silva, whilst the late-season form of Manchester United duo Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini has seen them overlooked this term.

The PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year will be announced at the PFA awards ceremony, which takes place at Grosvenor House in London on Sunday evening. Hazard and Kane are the favourites to land the major honours.
