It takes a pretty consistent season to make the PFA Team of the Year, and this year every single selection is pretty much justified.
The 2017/17 Team of the Year reads as follows: David De Gea, Kyle Walker, Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Danny Rose, Sadio Mane, N’Golo Kante, Dele Alli, Eden Hazard, Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku.
From those that didn’t make it, the likes of Christian Eriksen, Cesar Azpilicueta, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez can probably feel aggrieved not to have been involved.
But how would the team look with a slight twist?
Yes, we’ve compiled a pretty pleasing graphic illustrating which boot has been the preferred choice for each member of the Team of the Year.
It shows that Nike have a stranglehold over Adidas at the moment, with seven of the 11 players opting for their products.
Walker’s use of the Mercurial Superfly V rather annoyingly denies a defensive backline purely consisting of Magista Obra IIs, while we can only imagine Kante’s X 16+ Purechaos boots are built for endurance.
Interestingly, both wingers in Mane and Hazard opt for the same boot – the Mercurial Vapor XIs – which are evidently designed with speed in mind.
Lukaku and Kane differ in brands but their currency remains the same, with the strikers plundering 25 and 29 goals respectively and finishing top of the Premier League scoring charts.
Dream Team is the best place to stay updated and clued in with all the latest boot releases.
