Gary Neville explains decision to put Tottenham’s Heung-min Son in TOTY over Liverpool’s Sadio Mane


Carragher & Neville’s TOTY

Yesterday evening saw the final Monday Night Football over the year take place.

During the program, Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville would put out their 2020 Premier League Team of the Year.

The side, unsurprisingly, was dominated by Liverpool stars.

All of Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah were named from Liverpool.

Tottenham then had two stars in the eleven in the form of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.

No other Premier League outfit managed to get more than one player into the team with Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Wolves’ Conor Coady and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes completing the eleven:

Why they picked Son over Salah

As with any sort of TOTY/ best eleven picks, there will be some debate amongst fans.

And one area some seemingly took exception to with Neville and Carragher’s was Son being included over Sadio Mane.

Neville even took to Twitter to explain their selection choice – and it was fairly easy to see why the South Korean made it in over Mane.

As shown in the stats posted by Neville, Son scored more goals, provided more assists and had a better shot conversion rate, all whilst averaging fewer shots and chances created per 90 minutes, as well as having a lower expected goals and assists than Mane:
