All week on Sky Sports we have been asking you to name your Premier League Team of the Season – and now the results are in.
We have seen who our pundits – from Jamie Carragher to the Soccer Saturday panel – have named as their best XI of 2019/20. And our journalists picked a combined side on the Sky Sports Football podcast.
But which of their selections do the Sky Sports website and app users agree with? Almost 50,000 of you have submitted your XIs using our team selector. Here’s the XI of most popular picks…
Dean Henderson was the clear winner between the sticks. The Sheffield United man scooped 51 per cent of the selections, ahead of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson (31 per cent), with Burnley’s Nick Pope way back in third, featuring in just four per cent of teams.
