If so, then the Fans' Team of the Year 2017 is what really counts with a record (and remarkable) 8.77 million votes cast, an increase of 1.6 million over 2016.

Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard were new entrants this year as well as being the first Belgians to be represented in the final team.

The line-up is based on a 4-4-2 formation, which was by far the most popular system chosen by fans during the voting process with 459,797 selections.

Both Buffon and Chiellini have been included, as has former Bianconeri full-back Dani Alves, who joined Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

Voted by the fans, the usual suspects of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi make the cut but to the surprise of many, only two Premier League players feature.
