Tottenham's Dele Alli and Everton forward Romelu Lukaku have been named in the PFA Team of the Year, which is dominated by Chelsea and Spurs stars, but there is no place for Manchester United talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

Chelsea and Tottenham both have four players included in the team, with Manchester United Liverpool and Everton contributing one apiece.

Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante all take pride of place for Antonio Conte's men, while the excellence of Tottenham's Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, Harry Kane and Alli has also been recognised by the Professional Footballers' Association.

Liverpool's sole inclusion is Sadio Mane, who has excelled since joining from Southampton, while Manchester United's only representative is David de Gea, a selection that has raised a few eyebrows.

The Spaniard faced strong competition from Tottenham's Hugo Lloris, Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois and Sunderland stopper Jordan Pickford but he has managed to bat off the challengers and secure his place for the third year running.

Everton forward Lukaku's wondrous goalscoring form this season has rightly led to his presence in the team's attack, and the Premier League's top scorer will hope to add to his success by winning either the Player or Young Player of the Year award.

The glaring omission is Arsenal's Sanchez, who despite being nominated for the Player of the Year award has been overlooked for a spot in the team of the season, with Mane and Hazard taking up the wide berths. Chelsea playmaker Hazard is a regular incumbent of these sides and has now been included in the Team of the Year in France and England in six of his last seven campaigns.

Manchester United forward Ibrahimovic has adapted to Premier League life swimmingly but his 17 goals, five assists and substantial influence at Old Trafford are not enough to earn him a place ahead of Tottenham striker Kane and Lukaku, who has been heavily linked with a return to Chelsea this summer.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero, lauded as one of the best players to ever grace the Premier League, has missed out once again. The Argentine has failed to make the English top-flight's team of the season since joining City in the summer of 2011.
