Man City celebrate

Former Manchester United player names seven Manchester City players in Team of the Year

Leicester City full-back Danny Simpson has named seven Manchester City players in his PFA Team of the Year, he revealed on Twitter.

This morning the Premier League winner took to Twitter to share that he had named Nicolas Otamendi, Kyle Walker, Leroy Sane, David Silva, Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero in his Team of the Year.

Simpson also voted Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah as his PFA Player of the Year, following the Egyptian’s stellar season.

Danny Simpson’s Team of the Year

With just eight rounds of fixtures remaining in the 2017/18 season, players are beginning to name their player and teams of the year.

The first player to share his team on social media is Simpson – who has unsurprisingly named seven City stars in his team.

The Premier League leaders require just two wins from their next two fixtures to seal the championship and have had a number of standout performers.

Whilst Otamendi has been formidable in defence, Walker has been brilliant bombing backwards and forwards down the right side, whilst De Bruyne and Silva have controlled the midfield and Sane, Sterling and Aguero have been lethal in attack.

One potentially questionable exclusion the former Manchester United player has made is the league’s second-highest goalscorer Harry Kane.

Despite De Bruyne’s brilliant season, Liverpool Mo Salah looks set to be named the Player of the Year, with Simpson being the first of many to vote for the former Chelsea man.

Having netted 28 goals this season, four more than any other player, the 25-year-old has been the league’s best individual performer; helping Liverpool supporters to completely forget the name, Philippe Coutinho.
