It`s scant consolation to us as it`s more than likely that we`re going to finish the season potless once again after a massively promising campaign, but three Arsenal players have played their way into the PFA Premier League team of the year.

At the PFA Player of the year awards, at which Jack Wilshere was named PFA you player of the year, three goners were voted into the PL team of the year.

Bacary Sagna was voted in at right back after becoming one of the most consistent and reliable full backs in the business. Few could see the reasoning behind signing Sagna when he came to The Arsenal, however he`s established himself as a mighty fine right back for us and it`s nice to see him get some recognition.

Jack Wilshere was further awarded by his peers, after receiving the Young Player of the Year award with the natural progression into the team of the year. Wilshere has been amazing this year, possessing all the qualities of future captain material. Even when he`s having a bad game his work ethic compensates for his lack of form and if his attitude were adopted by all our players we`d probably have wrapped up the title by now.

Samir Nasri has rightly cemented himself into the team of the year after being narrowly pipped for the Player of the Year award by Tottenham`s Gareth Bale. Nasri has performed admirably this season chipping with goals, assists, swash-buckling play and simple but effective intelligent football. Nasri has a flowing style about him, gracefully gliding across the pitch whilst effortlessly keeping the ball at his feet.

So congratulations to our players, at least we won something eh?

Premier League Team of the Year:

Edwin Van der Sar
Bacary Sagna
Nemanja Vidic
Vincent Kompany
