I know I probably have blue-tinted shades on, but Hazard being let out of the PFA Team of the Year, genuinely shocks me. He has the highest goal/ assist tally in the league, has created the most chances, has succeeded most dribbles and other league highs as well. Ed001 what's your opinion on the Team of the Year?

{Ed001's Note - tough one as Mane has been incredible at times too, but I certainly would not argue it one way or the other. The two I really do not get are Paul Pogba and Ederson. Ederson plays well when under no pressure, the minute he is tested and he is terrible. He has barely had anything to do and yet he has less clean sheets than Alisson, how is he in there ahead of him? As for Pogba, surely it has to be Kante? Even playing slightly out of position he has been a much more influential figure in the season than Pogba. In fact, I could probably pick a midfielder from almost every other team that deserves it more than Pogba!}

Can't wait for Zouma and Reece James to come back for next season. Both should walk in to the side in my opinion. I feel Zouma is an absolute elite CB that would possibly start for France if he were to become our first choice CB (which I feel he should be) . He's got pace, strong, one of the best headers of the ball in the prem, has an underrated football ability, and is a beast in the tackle. With Reece James it's incredible to think this guy is 19, he's built like a tank and made for the prem. physically you wouldn't change a thing with him if you were designing an elite RB.

He's a Rolls Royce of a player, proven by the trust shown in him to even play centre mid this season. I personally can't wait to see him start. I've loved watching Azpi play over the years, he's been a great servant, but unfortunately his time at RB is done now. Reece James will do to him what he did to Ashley Cole. Exciting times ahead! I just hope we have a manager in charge who trusts the youngsters who deserve to play!

I’ve necer been convinced of Zouma, been proved wrong with recent form. Looked brilliant, but Sarri likes s ball player as one of defenders so doubt it’ll be Zouma rudiger.

Does anybody want that 4th spot?. Still need a result at United which will be extremely difficult considering our away form but who knows. Said they'd be more twists but this is getting ridiculous, never seen 3 teams hand each other so many opportunities to take control on that 4th spot.

Another chance to capitalise on other results, United next, win and that's them out of race, arsenal have tough game v Leicester is too, but won't get too carried away, it's not like we're tsking chances that come our way, also neves again showed what a brilliant player he is and that these " regista " can get goals and assists, always a threat from distance,

Champions League qualification is back in our own hands again. Are we going to finally finish the job off or are we going to mess up once again.

One player I'm surprised doesn't get mentioned on this site is Ruben Neves. He would be brilliant for ya in a two next to Kante. We are awful against teams who sit back we have no one who can shoot from outside the box. Loftus-Cheek is getting better every game at arriving late into the box like Frank but we have no one who can ping a 30 yarder in. As people may know I'm not a big fan of Jorginho sorry he just doesn't cut it for me. We seem to have lost the data where we can battle the big boys for signings so taking a young potential future class player from Wolves could be good business.

I'll never understand the obsession with players who shoot from distance. 99% of the time they just concede possession, is that worth the odd one that hits the back of the net? How many has Ruben Neves pinged in from 30 yards this season?

He’s scored two but how many assists has Jorginho got? I reckon you’ve named yourself after him 😂 that’s why you don’t want him replaced.

Oh and there’s another screamer from outside the box for you tonight 👌🏻 Hope this helps Neves is quality!

From this season and last I could honestly say I don't think any of Rudiger, Luiz or Christensen are good enough to start for us. Christensen even though good positionally wise hasn't got a good mentality he falters as soon as a goal goes in. Luiz is past it and Rudiger isn't my cup of tea. I'd love to see Zouma back starting here next season. I'd sell Luiz and one of Christensen/ Rudiger to target an elite CB who is a leader. De Ligt would be my personal favourite but looks like he's off to Barcelona or maybe Skriniar. Don't want to see us spend 80 million on Koulibaly.

Fair comments mate.

I would love to see Zouma back in our squad. He has all the attributes to be successful. He would cost in excess of 40m in the current market in my opinion.

I think Rudiger is alright, his pace saves him when he is out of position. Whereas the same can't be said about AC.

A back four of Reece James, Zouma, Romagnoli and Grimaldo/ Digne would be my ideal back four but i can't see that happening. If we can't spend in the Summer then for me hopefully we'll see Reece James, Zouma, Christensen and Emerson and have Jay Dasilva, Tomori/ Rudiger and Azpi as backups.

I think all of Rudiger, Luiz and Christensen are fine, and Ampadu will be better than them in the future. I just don't believe that any combination of the these works. Recent goals that we have conceded have shown a general lack of leadership and organisation in defence. Very few teams have won the Premier League without a CB with these qualities. Terry, Vidic, Kompany and maybe soon Van Dijk all have these qualities.

In my opinion the time has probably come for Luiz to move on, but the club should be looking for a good CB who also has these qualities to play alongside Christensen, Rudiger and Ampadu. But they are a rare commodity in football, maybe Ampadu will come through and be that player, age isn't a necessary requirement - look at Van Ligt at Ajax, 19 years old and the clear leader of that side.

His name is De Ligt. Not Van Ligt.
