BBC Premier League team of the season – One Man Utd star makes the cut

Just one Manchester United player made Garth Crooks’ Premier League team of the season.

In his BBC Sport column, Crooks has selected his best XI from the Premier League 2019-20 season, with the Scousers unsurprisingly dominating the line-up after winning their first league title in 30-years. A total of five Liverpool players made the eleven.

City, who finished runners-up this season, have three inclusions in the BBC team of the year.

United, Arsenal and Leicester City all have one each — making up the eleven.

It may come as a bit of a surprise that United’s one player isn’t Bruno Fernandes — the midfield is made up of Kevin de Bruyne, Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling — but Harry Maguire in the heart of defence.

He deserves it alongside Virgil van Dijk but I feel Fernandes could feel a sense of injustice. I mean, I wouldn’t blame him.

Ederson steps in as goalkeeper, with a back-four of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Maguire, Van Dijk and Andrew Robertson.

The front three, I don’t think anyone could argue with, is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Jamie Vardy and Sadio Mane. They scored 63 Premier League goals between them this season.
