Danny Drinkwater: Takes his place in Championship PFA Team of the Year

Leicester City and Burnley have been recognised for their stunning seasons with three representatives apiece in the Championship PFA Team of the Year.

Nigel Pearson's Leicester have stormed to promotion and can reach a century of points if they avoid defeat on the final day of the campaign.

Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, defender Wes Morgan and midfielder Danny Drinkwater have all been named in the PFA's side of the season.

Burnley will join Leicester in the Premier League next term and Kieran Trippier, Jason Shackell and Danny Ings all take their place in the team chosen at Sunday night's awards ceremony.

Leeds United's leading scorer Ross McCormack joins Ings in attack, while third-placed Derby County are represented by Craig Bryson and Will Hughes.

Andy Reid of Nottingham Forest takes a spot in midfield, while Ipswich Town's Aaron Cresswell lines up at left-back.

Championship PFA Team of the Year: Schmeichel (Leicester); Trippier (Burnley), Cresswell (Ipswich), Morgan (Leicester), Shackell (Burnley); Drinkwater (Leicester), Reid (Nottingham Forest), Bryson (Derby), Hughes (Derby); Ings (Burnley), McCormack (Leeds).

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
