- Mo Salah made the 3 man shortlist for Player of the Year, but failed to make the Team of the Year. Instead Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard & Lionel Messi were in the XI
- Likewise, Thibaut Courtois won Best Goalkeeper, but it was David de Gea who was in the Team of the Year
- Manchester City, Barcelona, Juventus & Bayern Munich won their respective leagues by a combined 58 points. Only Lionel Messi of Barcelona made the Team of the Year.
- Meanwhile Chelsea, who finished 5th, had two players in the Team of the Year (N’Golo Kante & Hazard) and their goalkeeper was voted Best Goalkeeper (Courtois)
- Dani Alves started just 23 league games for PSG, and did not go to the World Cup. Can these people not think of any other right back who was better last season?
