Ozil in Hazard out! Giroud also picked in Premier League Team of the Season by fans

Arsenal stars have dominated a fan voted Premier League team of the season.

Arsenal duo Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud have somewhat controversially been picked in a Barclays Premier League Team of the Season.

The difference between this team and the official PFA Team of the Year, is this one on the Premier League's website, was voted for by fans, rather than the players themselves.

And it appears Arsenal's sizeable fanbase have had their own say, voting for five players in total, with Wojciech Szczesny, Laurent Koscielny, and Aaron Ramsey also picked.

Liverpool, Everton and Chelsea stars comprise the remainder of the team, with not one player from eventual champions Manchester City.

Giroud's selection up front is the most controversial of the lot, outscored by four strikers in addition to Suarez, and level with Edin Dzeko who played substantially less minutes than he did.

Luis Suarez Liverpool FW 31 33 2,964
Daniel Sturridge Liverpool FW 21 29 2,275
Sergio Agüero Man City FW 17 23 1,539
Wayne Rooney Man Utd FW 17 29 2,448
Wilfried Bony Swansea FW 16 34 2,472
Edin Dzeko Man City FW 16 31 1,991
Olivier Giroud Arsenal FW 16 36 3,081

Daniel Sturridge, Yaya Toure, Adam Lallana, Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany, Gary Cahill, Luke Shaw and Petr Cech are the eight players to be 'dropped' from the PFA Team of the Year, not making the fans team.

No Arsenal players featured in the PFA team, with only Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and Seamus Coleman chosen in both.
