Premier League

Six Norwich players in PFA Championship team of the year as Canaries dominate selections

The PFA’s Championship team of the season is dominated by title winners Norwich City.

The Canaries, who finished on 97 points, are heading back to the Premier League after just one season away.

And the PFA’s team of the season, which is voted for by the players themselves, recognises the dominance of Daniel Farke’s team.

No fewer than SIX City players make the cut – Goalkeeper Tim Krul, defenders Max Aarons and Grant Hanley, midfielders Emi Buendia and Oliver Skipp (who was on loan from Tottenham ) and striker Teemu Pukki.

Strangely though, Watford finished second on 91 points and yet they are not represented in the XI.

In stark contrast Brentford, who won promotion to the top flight for the first time in 74 years at Wembley last week, have three players who make the grade.

Defenders Ethan Pinnock and Rico Henry are joined by Ivan Toney, whose 31 goals scored in the regular season is a new Championship record.

The remaining two spaces go to Reading’s influential midfielder Michael Olise and Blackburn’s Adam Armstrong who notched a whopping 28 league goals last term.
