Carragher and Neville pick teams of the season with Cancelo snubbed from one line-up but exact same front three


GARY NEVILLE snubbed standout star Joao Cancelo from his Team of the Season.

But he did agree with Jamie Carragher on his front three – as just three players outside of Liverpool and Manchester City made the squads.

The Sky Sports pundits picked their all-star XIs on Monday Night Football after Arsenal’s crushing 2-0 defeat at Newcastle.

And no Gunners flops made it into either team off the back of their nightmare evening in the North-East, which all but ends their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

Aaron Ramsdale may have been in with a shout at the half-way stage of the season but in the end, Neville and Carragher agreed on Alisson between the sticks.

Six outfield players featured in both teams, with a 4-3-3 selection for the pair.

Virgil van Dijk was the lynchpin in the defences of the two experts with Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne in midfield.

And they also agreed on Mo Salah, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in attack.

That left just four spots which differed – three of the back four and the holding midfielder.

Carragher opted for Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip and Cancelo in defence with Declan Rice further ahead.

But Neville chose Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias and Andrew Robertson with Rodri in front.

The former right-back described the midfielder as City’s best player this term with his side now just one win away from retaining their Premier League crown.

And it meant there was no space for any Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal players at all.

The Sky duo also chose their individual awards for the 2021-22 campaign, too.

Neville picked Son as his player of the year with Luis Diaz the No1 new signing and selected Mateo Kovacic’s special volley against Liverpool as the top goal.

Carragher, meanwhile, chose De Bruyne as his standout performer, Cristian Romero as the best new arrival and Salah’s solo wondergoal against City as the best goal.

They agreed on Rice being the best young player with Jurgen Klopp the top boss.
