THERE’S NOT MUCH separating them in the race for the title and it was a similar story when the PFA Premier League Team of the Year was announced earlier today.

Both Leicester and Tottenham dominate the selection with four players from each club included.

Inevitably, the Foxes’ ‘Holy Trinity’ of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante – all shortlisted for the Player of the Year award – make the grade once again while the team captain Wes Morgan is also selected.

Both Harry Kane and Dele Alli – who are also in the mix for Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year respectively – get the nod along with their team-mates Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose.

Elsewhere, another candidate for the main individual award – West Ham’s Dimitri Payet – is included while there’s room too for Arsenal youngster Hector Bellerin.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s David de Gea was voted the top-flight’s best goalkeeper by his fellow professionals.
