The 2016-17 PFA Premier League Team of the Year has been named, with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur boasting the bulk of its players.

The two London sides are currently jostling for the league title, with the Blues top of the table and Spurs just four points behind in second.

David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante are Chelsea's representatives in the team, while England quartet Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Harry Kane form the Spurs contingent.
