By Carl Markham

Chelsea and Tottenham lead the way in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year with four players each. Blues midfielder N'Golo Kante and winger Eden Hazard, both nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, are included along with defensive duo Gary Cahill and David Luiz.

Spurs are represented by midfielder Dele Alli and striker Harry Kane, as well as full-backs Danny Rose and Kyle Walker.

Manchester United's David De Gea gets the nod in goal, while Merseyside duo Sadio Mane, of Liverpool, and Everton's Romelu Lukaku complete the line-up.

While Kane and Lukaku are also on the shortlist for Player of the Year, the other two nominees, United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal, miss out.

Anthony Knockaert is one of four Brighton players in the Championship Team of the Year.

The French midfielder, the Championship's Player of the Year, is joined by keeper David Stockdale and defenders Bruno and Lewis Dunk for the Seagulls, who have secured promotion and play Norwich tonight.

Newcastle trio Jonjo Shelvey, Jamaal Lascelles and Dwight Gayle are included, along with Leeds striker Chris Wood, Aaron Mooy of Huddersfield and Fulham duo Tom Cairney and 16-year-old full-back Ryan Sessegnon.
