MANCHESTER CITY have an incredible SIX players in the PFA Team of the Year for 2020-21 – but none of them are forwards.
Pep Guardiola’s side stormed to the Premier League title, winning their third crown in four years.

But the Etihad chief is fully aware he needs to sign an elite striker this season – and the PFA XI conclusively proves that.
The Team of the Year is packed with City stars, including FOUR of the back-five, including the goalkeeper.
Ederson is joined by Joao Cancelo, John Stones and Ruben Dias in defence – with Manchester United ace Luke Shaw the only non-City star in the back-line.
The midfield is an all-Manchester affair too, with Kevin de Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan partnering Bruno Fernandes in an attacking trio.
But in attack, there are no City – or United – players on show.
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah teams up with Tottenham duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in an exciting front three.
Guardiola admitted his side are in desperate need of a new striker at the end of the 2020-21 season.
Sergio Aguero has ended his decade-long love-affair with Man City, joining Barcelona on a two-year deal.

City have already been linked with Kane and Erling Haaland – but may have to spend £150million to land either man.
The Etihad side are now expected to test Tottenham’s mettle after Kane revealed he is keen to quit North London to finally end his silverware drought.
And Man City are expected to offer Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and cash to Spurs in order to land Kane.
With an already world-dominating defence and superstar-studded midfield, an elite striker could be the missing piece of the puzzle as City chase their first-ever Champions League crown.
Guardiola and Co fell agonisingly short in 2020-21, losing the final at the hands of Chelsea.
And it’s becoming increasingly obvious the arrival of Kane could finally propel them to the top of European football.
