Ireland international Seamus Coleman has been named in the English PFA Premier League team of the year.

The Everton right-back was included among the final 11 with Liverpool and Chelsea leading the way with three players each.

Chelsea supplied Petr Cech, Eden Hazard and Gary Cahill, with Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge the Liverpool representatives.

Chelsea put a huge dent in Liverpool's title hopes with a 2-0 victory at Anfield on Sunday.

But skipper Gerrard, and Liverpool's 'SAS', Suarez and Sturridge, have already guaranteed the Reds will take part in the Champions League next season, and they remain firmly in the Premier League title race.

Southampton's fine season was reflected in the presence of skipper Adam Lallana and left-back Luke Shaw, both hoping to be included in England's World Cup squad.

Manchester City duo Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany make up the XI.

PFA Premier League team of the year: Cech (Chelsea), Shaw (Southampton), Kompany (Man City), Cahill (Chelsea), Coleman (Everton), Hazard (Chelsea), Yaya Toure (Man City), Gerrard (Liverpool), Lallana (Southampton), Suarez (Liverpool), Sturridge (Liverpool).
