The PFA have released their respective team of the seasons for the English divisions, and only one Arsenal star was selected for the final Premier League XI.
Hector Bellerin was our only inclusion in the line-up, but Nacho Monreal has been one of our stand-out stars this term, while Mesut Ozil has been incredible for much of the season.
The German maestro tops the assists chart for the English top flight, with 18 goals created, and also added six goals to his portfolio this term. Ozil has been a huge asset for us, and his exclusion was a hard pill to swallow.
Monreal has also been hugely important to us this year, thoroughly displacing Kieran Gibbs in the fight for regular first-team action, and the Spaniard has been by far the best left-back in the country, if not the best defender altogether.
Bellerin has continued his great for from last season, and gets the nod for the PFA XI, but as much as he has been great getting forward, his defending has not matched that of his team-mate on the left. There are very few right-backs who have excelled this season however, and he deserves his place in the team.
Another Gunner who warrants thought for the team has to be Petr Cech, who has been ever-consistent for us this year, as well as for his former side previously. The Czech international deserves all the plaudits sent his way. Cech has 13 clean sheets so far this season (one less than the selected De Gea), but with four matches remaining, he could easily gain the Premier League Golden Glove by the end of the term.
