Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been controversially named on the list of players for the PFA Players’ Team of the Year.

The French World Cup winner was the only Manchester United player on the list which was dominated by players from Premier League champions and city rivals Manchester City.

As many as six Manchester City players made the list which also had four players from Premier League title chasers Liverpool.

Paul Pogba has divided opinions at Manchester United since his return to the club in the summer of 2016.

The Frenchman returned to the Theatre of Dreams four years after he left for Italian champions Juventus on a free transfer for a then world-record fee of £89m.

Pogba struggled to make an impact under Jose Mourinho earlier in the season before the Portuguese tactician was sacked and replaced with former club striker Oleg Gunnar Solskjaer in December.

He enjoyed his best football this term under Solskjaer though his form has dipped in recent weeks.

Pogba has scored 13 goals and also provided nine assists for Manchester United this season.

Others on the list include Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk, Sadio Mane and Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Sergio Aguero, Ederson, Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho (Manchester City).
