Paul Pogba Or Fabinho? The Sportsman Picks Their Current Premier League 2018/19 Team Of The Season
20:06, 31 Mar 2019

The Premier League season is now entering its final phase with the trophies set to be handed out over the next six weeks or so and the relegation places set to be decided.

Speculation is rife at the moment about the individual awards with golden boot and player of the year a hot topic of conversation, but which players will be given the honour of being in the team of the 2018/19 season.

We at the Sportsman thought why wait, it is time for our team of the year awards to be dished out it wasn't an easy choice. Arguments have ensued in the office today as we have made our picks for The Sportsman team of the season.

Find out who made the cut below...

GK - Ederson

A tight call between Alisson and the Man City keeper but Ederson has made the less obvious errors in the league and that has seen the Brazilian #2 get the nod for us this term.

RB - Trent Alexander-Arnold

The young Englishman continues to go from strength-to-strength and it is testament to his quality that when injured, Liverpool missed his quality in the flanks. The world is at his feet.

LB - Andrew Robertson

The Scottish full-back has been a terrier up and down the pitch all season and continues to prove one of the best signings in Premier League history. A must for any team of the year.

CB - Virgil Van Dijk

A colossus at the back for Liverpool and one of the best defenders ever to grace the Premier League. A no brainer for the team of the season.

CB - Fabian Schar

A surprise inclusion in our defence but Schar has been sensational for Newcastle in recent weeks for Rafa Benitez. Blocks, Interceptions and clearances have been the order of the day for the Swiss star and he gets the nod thanks to a late surge.

MID - Paul Pogba

The Man United World Cup winner has come alive under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with the former Juventus man at his brilliant best during the second half of the season. Pogba has been a different man going forward of late and that has been enough to sneak into our team of the year.

MID - Ruben Neves

The Wolves midfielder may not have fancy numbers in the goals and assists column but make no mistake, the former Porto man is a sensational footballer. A brilliant passer of the ball, Neves is now settled as one of the best in his position in England.

MID - Bernardo Silva

Man City have not missed Kevin De Bruyne this season and that is down to the brilliance of Bernardo Silva for the Citizens. The Portuguese play-maker has been sensational all season under Guardiola with his jinking runs from the right onto his left foot causing oppositions all sorts of problems.

FWD - Raheem Sterling

The Englishman has been superb for Man City over the last six months and is growing into one of the best players in Europe. A dead cert for the team of the year with his quality in front of goal and out wide making him a key man for Pep Guardiola.

FWD - Sergio Aguero

Another Man City player with the Argentinean rightly in the conversation to be one of the greatest foreign players to have have played in the Premier League. A City stalwart, Aguero has looked better than ever this term and is right at home as the centre-forward in the team of the year as thing stand.

FWD - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The Arsenal forward continues to shine at the Emirates with goals and assists to his name and the Gunners now know they have a forward they can rely on for the future. A terrific player.
