Gary Neville has picked his Premier League Team of the Season.
The team includes five players from Manchester City, including Phil Foden, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan, Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker, four players from Manchester United (Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire), Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy.
On his choice regarding Rashford, Neville said: “On the left, I went for Marcus Rashford.
“When he was doing all that stuff off the pitch, which was incredible, I thought there must be a consequence of that on the pitch, that he would start to falter and that the injuries would pick up or he would be distracted.
“But he just kept going and kept performing and he’s still there. Sadio Mane has obviously been outstanding for the last three weeks, Son is a brilliant player, but I went for Rashford because of his overall contribution on and off the pitch. Maybe there’s a bit of emotion there.”
Here is the Premier League Team of the Season, according to Gary Neville.
