It’s the time of year when football fans can vote for who they think should be part of the UEFA Team of the Year.
These types of lists are almost always subjective and provoke a continuous debate about the relative merits, or not, of those who are in the final XI.
Liverpool have eight players in the final 50 who are populated as you would expect. The only real surprise in this year’s edition is that Barcelona only have one nominee in Lionel Messi.

Goalkeepers: Alisson Becker, Keylor Navas, Jan Oblak, Anthony Lopes, Manuel Neuer
