Stats Zone Premier League Team of the Year 2014/15
You may be surprised, and you certainly won't like them all, but FFT has crunched the numbers with those clever bods at Opta Towers to craft our Stats Zone Awards Premier League Team of the Season.
Read on to find out who's made the cut...
Goalkeeper: Lukasz Fabianski (Swansea)

Fabianski finally got the first-team football he craved by leaving Arsenal after seven years, and the Pole has justified the faith shown in him by Garry Monk with a stellar first season in Wales. His 13 clean sheets were only fewer than Joe Hart’s 14, but his 137 saves were matched by no one. His shots-to-save ratio was behind only Arsenal’s David Ospina and Sunderland giant Costel Pantilimon.
It contributed to Swansea’s best Premier League season yet, on the back of which their No.1 picked up the Players’ Player of the Year award. It’s no wonder they’re so keen to tie him down to a new contract, what with his current release clause being only £4 million according to reports, and the likes of Borussia Dortmund sniffing.
Right-back: Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)
Another big season from the Serbian, who continued to prove why big can be beautiful even at right-back. Four goals and five assists was a big improvement on 2013/14, and the 31-year-old played every minute of every Premier League game this season (with the exception of coming off after his late red card against Manchester United at Old Trafford in October) for a Chelsea side that swept the competition away. It’s testament to Ivanovic that you just expect this level of performance from him these days.
