LONDON (AP) — Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is the only player not from Manchester City or Liverpool to be selected in the Premier League's Team of the Year for the 2018-19 season.
City had six representatives — Ederson, Aymeric Laporte, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero — while Liverpool had four, although Mohamed Salah wasn't among them despite being tied for the top scorer in the league.
Pogba was picked for the team, which is voted for by Premier League players, despite having an up-and-down season. He was dropped for the final matches of Jose Mourinho's tenure and has had a dip in form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in recent weeks.
Chelsea forward Eden Hazard wasn't included, despite being on the six-man shortlist for the Professional Footballers' Association's Player of the Year award.
Team of the Year: Ederson (Manchester City), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City), Andy Robertson (Liverpool), Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), Fernandinho (Manchester City), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Sadio Mane (Liverpool).
