Man City and Manchester United dominate Premier League team of the season

Manchester City and Manchester United have dominated the Premier League team of the season selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks.

City lifted their third Premier League title in four years on Sunday, rounding off the domestic campaign with the thrashing of Everton, while United finished 12 points behind as their closest competitors.

Both sides are now fully focused on the European finals that lay ahead, with United tackling Villarreal in the Europa League final on Wednesday and City locking horns with Chelsea in next weekend’s Champions League final.

Victory for either side would cap off a superb season for the clubs, who have seen individuals in the squad recognised by BBC pundit Crooks.

Title-winning City have five inclusions in the team, more than any other side, starting with goalkeeper Ederson – who kept 19 clean sheets over the course of the season.

FWA Player of the Year Ruben Dias slots into a three-man defence, playing behind a diamond midfield that includes Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin de Bruyne.

For United, captain Harry Maguire is the second inclusion in the defence following a stellar campaign that was unfortunately ended prematurely due to injury.

Kane finished as the Premier League’s top-scorer this season, in what could be his final campaign in north London.
