With football seasons across Europe all having come to a close, attention has turned to who makes the Team of the Year across the divisions.

In England, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur dominated the PFA Team of the Year, which was no surprise given how they performed.

But would those stars from the Premier League make it into a European stats based super Team of the Season?

Oulala decided to find out and there were two very surprising inclusions in the team.

In goal there is no Premier League man as Keylor Navas from Real Madrid is the chosen 'keeper.

Francesco Acerbi from Sassuolo is part of a three-man defence, alongside Toby Alderweireld and Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk.

The Premier League dominates the midfield too, as Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and West Ham United’s Dimitri Payet are all in, with PSG and former Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria making up the four. 

Up front there is no place for Harry Kane or Jamie Vardy as Barcelona duo Neymar and Lionel Messi are in alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The bench is where the real shock is to be had though, as alongside the likes of Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo sits none other than Bournemouth defender Steve Cook.
