Die-hard Everton fan Tony Bellew has picked an alternative Premier League Team of the Year – without a single Liverpool player.

The Reds are just a point behind league leaders Manchester City with two games remaining.

Bellew could not find room for any Liverpool players

They have amassed an incredible 91 points already, which would be enough to claim the title most seasons.

Mohamed Salah leads the race for the Golden Boot with 21 goals, while Sadio Mane sits just one behind, level with City striker Sergio Aguero on 20.

Liverpool also boast the Premier League’s tightest defence this season, with Virgil van Dijk named PFA Player of the Season, but nonetheless, Bellew finds no room for any Reds in his alternative XI.

Four of Jurgen Klopp’s stars were named in the PFA Team of the Year last month – Trent Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Mane.

Instead, Bellew opts for Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Toffees defender Lucas Digne and Tottenham duo Toby Alderweireld and Heung-Min Son.

The former boxing star, who won 30 of his 34 professional bouts, also found room for Eden Hazard.
