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.

t's just a ride. Bill Hicks is sorely missed, what a prophet and still relevant twenty years after his death. I'm glad though he didn't get to see George Bush Jnr as President.
