Michael Owen announces team of the season with no Arsenal players

Owen has become very unpopular at The Emirates this season.

Michael Owen has been teasing fans on Twitter all day over his team of the year - which will be published in his column for The Telegraph tomorrow.

And here is the team he chose - which has a rather Liverpool edge to it…

In honesty it is hard to disagree with many positions he has gone for.

The goalkeeper position was not easy, as Owen said there have been no standouts. I would have gone with David Marshall of Cardiff City - but David De Gea is a fair shout.

The rest of the team are certainly deserving of a mention.

But one team have nobody present - Arsenal.

Owen, who now works as a co-commentator for BT Sport, has gained a reputation this season for his apparent dislike of The Emirates clan.

The former Manchester United and Liverpool striker has often been disparaging of the club this campaign - starting off by announcing his belief that Arsenal will finish fifth this term, a prediction which is not looking to shabby now.

But in all honesty there is not much ground for any Arsenal player to feel aggrieved at being left out.

Without injury Aaron Ramsey might have made it so perhaps the only player with a shout of inclusion would have to be Bacary Sagna.

He has impressed in what might prove to be his final season at the club - but Owen even addressed that issue…

No room in the inn for Arsenal players according to Michael Owen.
