Everton's consistency through the calendar year has seen four of their players selected in the fan-voted Premier League Team of 2013.
All four players, including goalkeeper Tim Howard are from the backline, with Arsenal's Per Mertesacker the only player preventing it becoming an entire Everton back five.
This also means somebody has missed out, and the unlucky one was Frenchman Sylvain Distin.
It hasn't gone unnoticed by even the player himself, perhaps the subject of a bit of dressing room banter at the club this morning, and he sent the Premier League a message via Twitter after learning of his omission.
The positive news is he seemed to take it in good spirits...
@premierleague am I on the bench at least ????? Ha ha ha— Sylvain Distin (@sylvaind15tin) January 3, 2014
If ever Distin needed reason to step his game up over the second half of this season, he now has it.
