ESPN FC's Craig Burley was left deeply underwhelmed by Manchester United's latest defeat to title-chasing Manchester City.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been included in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year, while Chelsea's Eden Hazard is a surprise omission in an XI dominated by Manchester City and Liverpool.

Pogba has endured an up-and-down season, having been out of the United team during Jose Mourinho's final matches in charge before playing a starring role under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Hazard, meanwhile, has scored 16 goals and assisted 13 in 34 Premier League appearances, scoring 19 in all competitions to match his most productive season in a Chelsea shirt.

City goalkeeper Ederson was selected, while title challengers Liverpool provide three of the back four with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson named alongside City's Aymeric Laporte.

City, who have six players the lineup, had Fernandinho and Bernardo Silva chosen in midfield alongside Pogba -- with Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero in attack.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane completes the lineup, which is voted for by players.

City and Liverpool also dominate the PFA Players' Player of the Year individual award, with Sterling, Van Dijk, Aguero, Mane and Silva shortlisted alongside Hazard.

Alexander-Arnold, Marcus Rashford, Declan Rice, David Brooks, Sterling and Silva have also been nominated for the PFA Young Player Award.

PFA Team of the Year: Ederson (Manchester City); Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool); Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Fernandinho (Manchester City), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City); Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Sadio Mane (Liverpool).
