Salah, Mahrez In, Partey Snubbed As EPL Unveils 40-Man Nominees For Team Of The Season

The Premier League on Monday released a 40-man shortlist for the Team of the Season.

Only two African players, Mohamed Salah of Liverpool and Riyad Mahrez of Manchester City made the list.

Mahrez has five goals, five assists in 22 Premier League fixtures while Salah has 15 league goals, has made seven assists in 30 games.

No Nigerian player did enough to be considered for nomination, as most of them are currently battling relegation with their respective clubs.

However, a surprise omission from the list is Black Stars of Ghana and Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey.

The 29-year-old has been pivotal in midfield for title contenders Arsenal, who currently top the league table.

So far Partey has contributed three goals in 26 Premier League games for the Gunners this season.
