The Premier League is on the business end and Manchester City is likely to be crowned champions but the race for the European spots is still on. Here is the possible PFA Team of the Year for the 2020/21 season.
#1 Goalkeeper – Emiliano Martinez
The former Arsenal goalkeeper has arguably been the best goalkeeper in the Premier League this season. The Argentine shot-stopper won crucial points for his side and Aston Villa are still in the race to secure a place in the European competition next season. Martinez has kept 14 cleans sheets in the league and only Ederson and Edouard Mendy have kept more this season. Villa has been highly benefitted from their keeper’s form this season.
#2 Right-back – Joao Cancelo
The Portuguese has been one of the best players for Manchester City this season and played numerous positions including as a full-back and also in midfield. Cancelo has also played in the number 10 position in few games and his attacking gameplay highly benefitted the attackers.
#3 Center backs – Ruben Dias and Harry Maguire
Ruben Dias has been the best signing for City this season and the Portuguese national has made City’s defense quite solid and City has conceded the least number of goals in the Premier League.
Harry Maguire had a shaky start to the season but he quickly got back to his best and has been pretty solid and dropped good performances against the top 6 sides.
#4 Left-back – Luke Shaw
Luke Shaw has created the most chances in 2021 in Premier League and the Englishman has been in his very best this season and also represented his country for the first time since September 2018 and registered an assist. Shaw has been pretty solid defensively and his crossing has improved this season and the attackers were benefitted.
