Pogba Makes PFA Team of the Year 

Virgil van Dijk has beaten Raheem Sterling to become the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year for 2019.

But perhaps the biggest surprise is the inclusion of Manchester United's Paul Pogba in a PFA Team of the Year that does not include Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

The official announcement is due on Friday and, as MailOnline revealed on Wednesday, Liverpool centre half Van Dijk has won the backing of his fellow professionals for his outstanding contribution in the best defence in the Premier League this season. As well as losing only one game in the League so far, they have kept an impressive 18 clean sheets.
