Philippe Coutinho has followed up his nominations for the PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards by making the Premier League team of the year.
The Brazilian is the only Liverpool player to be included in a team that includes six Chelsea stars, despite Raheem Sterling also being among the candidates for Young Player of the Year.

It’s certainly been a fine season for the 22-year-old, who has now fully-established himself as an integral member of Brendan Rodgers’ side, scoring seven goals and contributing six assists in 47 appearances.
He’s made a habit of netting in our big games, having scored in three rounds of the FA Cup, including our Wembley semi-final, while also striking against both Manchester City and Southampton in the Premier League.
With an incredible amount of room to continue growing and improving, there’s no telling what Coutinho is capable of in the future.
Thankfully, the youngster put pen to paper on a new long-term contract in February, meaning that he will hopefully become one of the cornerstones around which our team is built around for many years.
