Five Man City and three Manchester United players named to Premier League squad of the season – fr


Manchester City and Manchester United dominated the Premier League side of the season selected by BBC specialist Garth Crooks.
City won their third Premier League title in four years on Sunday, closing the domestic campaign with a beating from Everton, while United finished 12 points behind as their closest rivals.

Both sides are now fully focused on the European final ahead of them, with United facing Villarreal in the Europa League final on Wednesday and City blocking the horns with Chelsea in the Champions League final next weekend.

A win on either side would crown a superb season for the clubs, which have seen squad members recognized by BBC expert Crooks.

Title-winning City have five squad inclusions, more than any other team, starting with goalkeeper Ederson – who has kept 19 clean sheets throughout the season.

FWA Player of the Year Ruben Dias moves into a three-way defense, playing behind a diamond midfielder that includes Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin de Bruyne.

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