Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez: In the team of the year

Liverpool strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge were named on Sunday in the Professional Footballers Association's Premier League team of the year.

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).

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
