Paul Pogba included in PFA Team of the Year but Liverpool and Man City dominate

Somebody get Roy Keane on the phone.

Just hours after Keane ripped into Paul Pogba on Sky Sports, it emerged that the divisive Frenchman is set to be included in the PFA Team of the Year.

Pogba came in for some typically harsh Keane criticism ahead of Wednesday's Manchester derby and when kick-off came, United's record signing displayed the side of his game that has left Red Devils fans tearing their hair out for the past three years.

After a promising opening 30 minutes, United lost their early urgency and desire, leaving Manchester City to dictate the game in the second half and record a straightforward 2-0 victory at Old Trafford.

The result leaves the Premier League title race in City's hands, with Liverpool supporters now hoping for an unlikely slip-up from Pep Guardiola's side.

Places in the PFA Team of the Year, which will be announced later today, are largely divided between players from City and Liverpool although Pogba has managed to get into the side.

According to the Times, Pogba's 16 goals in 44 games this season have seen him rewarded with a place in midfield alongside Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho.

The PFA have since confirmed The Times' expected XI, with the above graphic showing that Ederson has been named in goal after a spectacularly reliable campaign between the sticks for Guardiola's defending champions.
