Two Chelsea stars Mateo Kovacic and Thiago Silva have been shortlisted for the EA SPORTS Team of the Year.

The shortlist is made up of 70 players, with EA Sports giving fans the opportunity to vote and determine the final team.

Kovacic made the shortlist having being named Chelsea’s Player of the Season last term, while Thiago Silva was a rock in the Paris Saint-Germain defence as they won the Ligue One and reached the final of the Champions League last season.

The Brazilian has also established himself in the heart of the Chelsea defence and has impressed so far this season.
