Which Arsenal stars SHOULD be in PFA Team of the Year?

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.

      1. It’s about PFA team of the year not who we’re good. cech has been ko not great. Same as others u mentioned.

    1. How many scoring chances has ozil missed ??? Over i billion and how many of those chances did he create ZERO (0) ,can’t you see IWOBI, SANCHEZ & ELNENY are better than ozil. Lets forget abt the names at the back of the jerseys for once and really watch the football. Ozil is an average player. CECH, MON, BEL & BFG have been our fairly consistent and reliable players this season. Giroud & sacnchez have helped wid quiet some goals and Iwobi has been WOW..

      1. If Ozil is an average player then what does that make World champions team (Germany) and world’s football in general?? Some average fans are on this forum, sorry to say it.

    1. Right this is the last time I’m going to say this.
      THIS thread is about the PFA team of the year and NOTHING to do with Wenger. Anyone who continually hijacks EVERY hread to slag Wenger off will get deleted.
      We don’t want to listen to moaning on every single post. Get it?

  1. Just Ozil and Bellerin

    If we had defended better Cech would have been in there.
    I was hoping he would have had a better season in his first season.

    1. Cech hasn’t been consistent. He has conceded a lot of goals he would have saved if he was in great form. I also have to blame the defense though who can make any top keeper nervous lol.

  2. Bellerin is the only one this year
    Özil’s inability to compete makes him lose out to Payet
    I don’t think the others were close really

  3. Ozil should be there. But I guess not having a good second half of the season could be the reason He isn’t there. *consistency*. Ozil was amazing in the first half of the season with 18assists. I doubt he has had any accent this year.

    At the moment, Hector is the best rb in the league and he has shown maturity and consistency..

    I’ll Put Monreal in the team too. He has been consistent too. Rose (Spurs) is in the team. Fair enough, he has had a good season as well.

    Cech and Sanchez were good but lengthy injury didn’t help..You can say the same thing for some of our players like Santi and the likes…

    1. Giroud and Theo are the reason Ozil assist a has been less in the second half of the season due to them missing sitters. Giroud hasn’t score for the last 2 and half months.

    2. Fuchs has been the best left back

      walker koscielney van dijk Fuchs
      Dembele. Kante
      Mahrez. Ozil Payet

  4. I think ozil should have been our only representative.
    I dont know why bellerin was chosen because he has been incosistent for a number of times.
    The team of the year that I expected was
    de gea
    walker van dijik alderwierld fuchs
    mahrez kante alli
    Vardy Kane

  5. Forget about the players, and look at the stats.
    The team of the year, call it PFA FC.

    3 of the midfielders are scoring and assisting; if two of thous played for one team this season, that team would of already won the league.

    Reviewing Arsenal I think looking forward, Sanchez and Ozil can offer them stats. Ozil needs to develop scoring more and Sanchez assisting more. To top that, Ramsay needs to develop assisting or scoring more from a deeper position and Eleny seems to look like he will get the odd assist and goal.

    Both strikers seem to suggest 40 odd goals this season, hence why they have been picked and are the best in the league this season.
    Most teams though play with 1 striker, so that guys needs to hit stats like messi to get 40odd a season. Arsenal don’t have that, so you either have more strikers or buy one top one.

    3. Interestingly if you take the goal against of the 5 defensive players picked in the PFA and divide by the number or teams the GA is28. We are Six goals off that! That’s our marker for check.

    Do Arsenal need to buy a Top Defender as priority? Has Cech got another season, has our defence got enough collectively.

    For me. The answers no. Bellerin yes, Ozil no. Nothing against him. Next season he needs something to excite him. Maybe a new striker….?…..

  6. Ozil shouldn’t be in the team he gives up to easily,and he’s body language effect the least senior players confidence.
