Chelsea certainly enjoyed a memorable weekend as they continued their inexorable march towards their first Premier League title in five years with a goalless draw against Arsenal on 26 April.

As well as Jose Mourinho's side securing that well-earned point, which leaves them just two victories shy of achieving their ultimate goal this season, the Blues also saw Eden Hazard beat the likes of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane and Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea to the 2015 PFA player of the year award.

If that was not quite enough, Chelsea were further recognised for their impressively consistent top-flight campaign with the inclusion of no less than six players in the PFA's official team of the year.

While the final selections were largely controversy free, IBTimes UK has decided to take a look at five of the biggest snubs who may have merited a place in such a line up based on their stellar form over recent months.

Sergio Aguero

While few will dispute that both Kane and Diego Costa are worthy of their places after scoring 39 goals between them in their first full season of Premier League football, Aguero continues to prove indispensable to Manchester City.

Manuel Pellegrini's side may have provided a limp defence of their 2013-14 domestic crown, yet their nimble-footed Argentine has suffered no such crisis of confidence with 21 goals in 29 appearances.

With a new manager surely incoming, City are widely expected to engineer an overdue overhaul this summer, with the idea of improving strength in depth and lowering the average age of the current squad.

Aguero, though, must remain firmly in the club's plans despite inevitable interest from the continent.

Nathaniel Clyne and Jose Fonte

Having been unable to prevent the likes of Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Rickie Lambert from departing the club following a strong run during the short reign of Mauricio Pochettino, many had expected Southampton to occupy a place in the lower reaches of the Premier League table this season.

However, inspired by the knowledge and experience of Ronald Koeman plus a raft of canny replacements including the likes of Ryan Bertrand, Graziano Pelle and Dusan Tadic, the Saints have confounded those dreary pre-season predictions; and before a slight blip in February, they found themselves embroiled in the fight for Champions League qualification.

Much of what has been good about Koeman's side has been dictated by their miserly defence. Following a 2-2 draw with Tottenham on 25 April and Chelsea's stalemate at Arsenal the following day, Southampton have conceded the joint-lowest amount of goals in the entire division.

Bertrand was named in the team of the year, of course, but there is certainly an argument to suggest that was not sufficient. Fonte has led the backline with splendid poise and authority and probably should have been included ahead of Gary Cahill.

Clyne, meanwhile, has continued to go from strength to strength in his third season at St Mary's and, having made 37 appearances in all competitions and established himself as England's first-choice right-back, could just have pipped the equally excellent Branislav Ivanovic.

Santi Cazorla

Arsenal, who had one representative in the official PFA team in the shape of Alexis Sanchez, are certainly not short of midfield options at present, but in Cazorla they can boast one of the most affable and watchable players in the Premier League.

Tied with his explosive Chilean teammate at the top of the Gunners' assist charts, the remarkably consistent 30-year-old combines fantastic vision with near-flawless technique and his influential performances have been key to his team's new-year resurgence.

If we are to assume that a player of Nemanja Matic's ilk was always likely to assume one of the midfield positions, could Cazorla have been chosen ahead of Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho?

Cesc Fabregas

Without wishing to inflate Chelsea or Mourinho's ego even further, Fabregas is the one Blues player, Cesar Azpilicueta perhaps withstanding, who can feel genuinely aggrieved not to have made the cut.

Alongside the signing of the physical but undeniably effective Costa and the return of Thibaut Courtois following a three-year stint in La Liga, the Spaniard's arrival from Barcelona in June 2014 provided the catalyst for the club's title charge and his solid partnership with Matic has been simply crucial.

With 16 assists to his name since returning to the Premier League, former Arsenal captain Fabregas has been a crucial creative source for Chelsea and he has also chipped in with three goals of his own – the last a crucial late winner in the west London derby against strugglers Queens Park Rangers on 12 April.
