With an exhilarating season completed, Alan Shearer has selected his Team of the Season.

The Premier League Hall of Fame inductee and record goalscorer has revealed who he considers to be the most influential players of the 2021/22 campaign.

Manchester City and Liverpool stars naturally dominate the line-up after their epic title race.

But there are honourable mentions for other players who had stellar seasons for their clubs, with Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United each represented in his stellar XI.

Alisson (LIV)
"The number of players he's been one-on-one with, and no one could get past him. He's one of the reasons why Liverpool have achieved what they have this season."  

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV)
"A forward's dream. The crosses and the chances he has created have just been phenomenal."

Virgil van Dijk (LIV)
"It's no surprise Liverpool struggled without him last season. He's been a tower defensively again for them."

Ruben Dias (MCI)
"He's been big, commanding, strong and, again, one of the reasons why Manchester City have been so good and so reliable."

Joao Cancelo (MCI)
"Assists, involvements, defending, you name it. He's been at the heart of everything good Man City have done."

Declan Rice (WHU)
"He's not just a sitting midfielder. He's proved this season he can burst forward and can get on the end of things. He's had a magnificent season."

Kevin De Bruyne (MCl)
"He had to be in there with his form again, with his assists and goals, and his standout performances."

Bernardo Silva (MCI)
"Trickery, skill, attitude, all of those things. Not the biggest of guys but he has the heart of a lion and has been magnificent again." 

Mohamed Salah (LIV)
"No surprise that I'm going to pick him. He's been superb. His goals again have often carried Liverpool at times."

Sadio Mane (LIV)
"The year he's had, internationally and for his club, he's been absolutely phenomenal. He's one of the reasons why Liverpool have been fighting on all fronts."

Son Heung-min (TOT)
"Goals, assists, his link-up play with Harry Kane and the understanding he has with him. Son had to be in my team."

Manager: Jurgen Klopp (LIV)
"For Liverpool to have been within a chance of winning all four trophies in May, it had to be Klopp."

Honourable mention: Jarrod Bowen (WHU)
"I really wanted to put him in my team because of his goals and assists. When you compare his form to some of the other England players then he deserves to be in that squad."
