Paul Pogba

Pogba named in PFA Team of the Year

Thursday 25 April 2019 09:00

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been named in the Professional Footballers' Association Premier League Team of the Year for the 2018/19 season.

The Frenchman is the only non-Liverpool and Manchester City representative in the XI, which was voted for by Premier League players from each of the 20 clubs in the division.

Pogba has registered 13 goals in the league - a tally no midfielder in the division has bettered and enjoyed his most productive campaign in terms of hitting the net.
Paul Pogba netted two decisive goals against West Ham United in our recent 2-1 win.
The midfield man has also been a provider of goals and has accrued nine assists throughout the season. He has missed just three league games all year.

It is the first time the 26-year-old has been included in the PFA Team of the Year, which, this season, is made up entirely of players from the north-west, with City having six representatives and Liverpool players occupying the other four spots. 

The PFA will hold their end-of-season awards dinner on Sunday 28 April at the Grosvenor House, where the Players’ Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year, for which Marcus Rashford has been shortlisted, will receive their trophies.

A United player has scooped the award on eight previous occasions, with Wayne Rooney our last victor, in 2010.

Manchester City keeper Ederson's inclusion ends a run of four successive seasons in goal for David De Gea.

Ederson is out smartly to frustrate Marcus Rashford in the derby.
