Well known Evertonian and former boxer Tony Bellew took to social media last week to offer up his suggestions for the Premier League Team of the Season for the 2018/19 campaign.
Most Everton fans I suspect will love his choices as he completely ignored Merseyside rivals Liverpool, so there was no Mohamed Salah or Virgil van Dijk, but he didn’t let his love of the club overly rule his head here as only Lucas Digne made it into his select XI.
This is my team of the year..

Agreeing with the recently announced Professional Footballers’ Association offering for the Team of the City, the same six Manchester City players go into his team, but he cast his eye further afield to make up the eleven.
Crystal Palace’s Aaron Bissaka takes a spot, as do Tottenham Hotspur duo Toby Alderweireld and Son Heung-Min.
There’s also a spot for Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard.
There’s far more of a balance to that one I’m sure most would agree, but with tinted spectacles off, Salah and van Dijk should probably be in there.
