It was a season to remember for Emiliano Martinez.

Following his move to Aston Villa from Arsenal last summer, the Argentine was an ever-present in Dean Smith’s side, keeping 15 clean sheets in the process.

The 28-year-old also impressed fans with his performances, receiving 37 per cent of votes to rank top out of the goalkeepers listed in our survey.

Manchester City keeper Ederson followed in second with 23 per cent, with Leicester ’s Kasper Schmeichel third with 20 per cent.

Defenders

It appears many were unable to look past City centre-back Ruben Dias for a place in the backline, with the Portuguese defender receiving 19 per cent of votes following his impact on Pep Guardiola’s side this season.

Defensive partner John Stones comes in alongside with nine per cent, pipping the likes of Harry Maguire and Wesley Fofana to a place in the team.

In terms of full-backs, Luke Shaw and Andy Robertson were the frontrunners with 10 and nine per cent respectively, with Kyle Walker, Reece James, Ben Chilwell and Joao Cancelo close behind with six per cent each.

Midfielders

Choosing a midfield proved a slightly easier decision for fans, with five players all receiving over 10 per cent of the vote.

Kevin De Bruyne ranked top of the list with 20 per cent, with Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes and fellow City star Phil Foden just behind with 16 and 15 per cent respectively.

Chelsea duo N’Golo Kante and Mason Mount both received 11 per cent, with the former finishing just a few hundred votes ahead.
