On a night when the league's leading scorer Suarez was hotly tipped to land the player of the year award, he and Sturridge were joined by Reds captain Steven Gerrard in the league select XI.

The announcements at London's Grosvenor House Hotel came hours after Liverpool lost 2-0 to Chelsea in the Premier League, to hand Manchester City the initiative in the race to lift the title, with a slip from Gerrard leading to the Blues' first goal.

Chelsea's Petr Cech, Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard made the PFA's Premier League team, along with City's Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure, plus Southampton left-back Luke Shaw and midfielder club-mate Adam Lallana, as well as Everton right-back Seamus Coleman.

While many of the players involved were sent messages of congratulations by their clubs on Twitter, the Football Association noted the inclusion of five players who could be World Cup bound with England this summer, stating: "Five @england players voted by professionals into @PFA team of the year: @GaryJCahill @LukeShaw3 Steven Gerrard, Adam Lallana @D-Sturridge"

PFA Premier League team of the year: Cech (Chelsea), Shaw (Southampton), Kompany (Man City), Cahill (Chelsea), Coleman (Everton), Hazard (Chelsea), Yaya Toure (Man City), Gerrard (Liverpool), Lallana (Southampton), Suarez (Liverpool), Sturridge (Liverpool).

Not too much to argue with really. JT would have got my vote over Cahill. I also do not think in any way has Shaw been the EPL's best left back, but young, English players get over hyped. The fact that 5 of the outfield players are English, when we are largely moderate as a nation tells you where the media bias is.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
