and fans who clearly don't agree that 13 goals and an inconsistenent season are enough to make the grade. he could be as with the question there is a world cup winner and he's got lots of qualities and certain performances he's an exceptional, but i don't think he deserves to get into tea m but i don't think he deserves to get into team of the year because i think his farm has been erratic, certainly the marina part of the season certainly the marina part of the season where they did not get on and see eye to eye, he his game was nowhere near the level it was when it was a different coach, he is not consistent enough for me. he has ability, he's magnificent, as an individual though. but i don't think he deserves to be even close to this team. gary lineker and jimmy floyd hasselbaink discussing paul pogba's
place in the pfa team of the year on the premier league show‘ earlier this evening. and if you missed the programme you can catch it on the bbc iplayer. there's been so much reaction to pogba's inclusion on social media — we've gathered some of them for you. dan graham has tweeted: "pogba has made the pfa team of the year over hazard, eriksen, wijnaldum, david silva, de bruyne among others. let's just all let that sink in for a while." oliver kay of the times agrees: "pogba in pfa team of the year! played very well for two months after mourinho left, but somewhere been poor and awful for most of the season — & yes i'm aware of the stats that make it look like he's played better than eriksen, bernardo etc". but chris winterburn feels pogba deserves his place: "surely the wider point about paul pogba's inclusion in the team of the year is that, a player who has scored 13 league goals and has nine assists as a midfielder is considered to have had a bad season by a large number of people."
well meanwhile this is the team — six from manchester city and four from liverpool — vindiaction for both side's superb seasons so far — no place for liverpool's mo salah though or tottenham's sun heung min and christian eriksen. liverpool managerjurgen klopp thinks the whole liverpool team deserved to be chosen. for me my team is the team of the season for me my team is the team of the season anyway, for me my team is the team of the season anyway, so for me my team is the team of the season anyway, so that's true because there could have been from my point of view, a56 seven more players involved because they played outstanding seasons, and many more moments but of course the players is not primarily make the standard decision so it's the oddest one in the air. manchester city and liverpool may be battling it out for the premier league title

it's a bit of an unseen spot between the two of them, mo was not happy with how the situation was resolved out there, and he has responded publicly as well because they chose a public platform to let us know about it, i think it die down hopefully, two teens hopefully get together and sorted out but the meantime, mo will be heating —— heading for a great clash on sunday i think he still incredibly focused, i was chatting with them yesterday, is one thought was about the weekend and you know, he's got a great opportunity in front of big crowds to put a great performance i don't think it'll affect in. at the world snooker championship in sheffield — the last first round matches are taking place while the second round gets under way. in the last hour or so england's kyren wilson has made it through to round two at the crucible. he eased past scotland's scott donaldson, winning ten frames to a. two time finallist ali carter
