Chelsea winger, Victor Moses, who has enjoyed a new lease of life since the arrival of new manager Antonio Conte, and since Chelsea switched to a 3-4-3 formation, missed out of the PFA Team of The Year that was released on Thursday.

The Nigeria international, who is arguably enjoying his best spell in the Premier League, has made 29 Premier League appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring three goals, and having three assists to his credit.

Chelsea midfielders N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard, both nominated for the PFA Player of the Year Award, were included, while the Blues’ central defenders, Gary Cahill and David Luiz, are also in the lineup.

Tottenham Hotspurs, who trail Chelsea by four points in the title race, are equally represented by four players, midfielder Dele Alli and striker Harry Kane, as well as full-backs Danny Rose and Kyle Walker.

Manchester United’s David De Gea gets the nod in goal, while Liverpool winger Sadio Mane and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, the division’s top scorer with 24 goals, complete the line-up.

While Kane and Lukaku are also on the shortlist for Player of the Year, the other two nominees, Man United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal, miss out.

The team had been set out in a 4-4-2 formation, which definitely explains how Moses, who had played a wing-back this season, could not find a place.
