Four of Manchester City's title-chasing team and three Tottenham players have been named in the PFA's Premier League Team of the Year.
England goalkeeper Joe Hart was selected between the posts while there were also places for defender Vincent Kompany and midfielders Yaya Toure and David Silva.
Tottenham had three players included, with England stars Kyle Walker and Scott Parker joined by last year's PFA Player of the Year Gareth Bale.
Wayne Rooney was the only representative from champions Manchester United with the league's top goalscorer, Arsenal's Robin van Persie, joining him in attack.
Champions League-chasing Newcastle have been the surprise package of the season and were represented in the XI by Argentina defender Fabricio Coloccini.
Everton full-back Leighton Baines was rewarded for another impressive season by being handed a place, meaning there were no representatives from Champions League semi-finalists Chelsea.
Premier League: Joe Hart (Man City), Kyle Walker (Tottenham),
Vincent Kompany (Man City), Fabricio Coloccini (Newcastle), Leighton Baines (Everton), David Silva (Man City), Yaya Toure (Man City), Gareth Bale
(Tottenham), Scott Parker (Tottenham), Robin van Persie (Arsenal), Wayne Rooney (Man Utd).
