PFA Team of the Year revealed: No Arsenal or United players

Luke Shaw

Chelsea, Everton, Manchester City, Southampton & Liverpool all represented on PFA Team of the Year list. Manchester United are notable for their absence.

A number of elite-level performers have missed out on inclusion in the PFA Team of the Year for the 2013-14 Premier League season.

There are no Arsenal players featured, despite exceptional performances from injury stricken stars such as Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott, while Mesut Ozil too is a notable absentee.

Elsewhere, there is no room for Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea and Manchester City star striker Sergio Aguero also failed to make the final cut despite scoring 16 goals and assisting ten times in 21 appearances in the division.

That means Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is the best man to guard the sticks in the eyes of the PFA. Cech has made 81 saves in the Premier League and has kept 16 clean sheets from 34 outings. He is currently injured and is out for the rest of the season. Bizarrely, he may well have played his last game for Chelsea due to the ambiguous nature of Thibaut Courtois' immediate future.

Helping protect Cech is Everton full back Seamus Coleman, centre back duo Gary Cahill of Chelsea and Vincent Kompany at Manchester City, and left back Luke Shaw.

Ahead of the rearguard is an adventurous foursome consisting of Steven Gerrard, Yaya Toure, Adam Lallana and Eden Hazard, while Liverpool's SAS - Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge - are preferred over Aguero.

The Professional Footballers Association Team of the Year:

Cech, Coleman, Cahill, Kompany, Shaw; Lallana, Gerrard, Toure, Hazard, Sturridge, Suarez.

The PFA voting and collation process is as follows: "PFA representatives deliver the ballot forms to the training ground of the 92 League clubs and 8 WSL clubs. Amongst the instructions and procedures that a player is given is that they are not allowed to vote for a player that is at the same club as themselves. Another stipulation is that a player can only win an award if their club has taken part in the ballot, this ensures that all players from other clubs that have voted have a fair chance of winning an award."
