Chelsea might have had a good campaign last season, but two players did enough for club and country to make the team.

Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante were impressive for their countries in the FIFA World Cup and made the FIFpro XI Team of the Year which was revealed today.

Surprisingly Liverpool star Mohamed Salah failed to make the squad.

The back four is dominated by Real Madrid – Marcelo, Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos with PSG defender Dani Alves occupying the right-back spot.

Luka Modric and N’Golo kante are the two central midfielders in the team, while Eden Hazard, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe are the three attacking players, with Cristiano Ronaldo upfront.

Hazard revealed he was delighted to be named in the FIFpro Team of the Year. He said: “I’m just proud to be next to these kind of players.

“They are all top players in the world. Some of them are friends of mine and I’m just happy to be here.”

Kante who also made the squad revealed his delight to be named in the team of the year.

He said: “I’m really proud to be here. It’s a great honour to be here. I’m very happy.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
