PFA Championship Team of the Year: Norwich & Leeds Dominate Division’s All-Star XI

Norwich City and Leeds United players unsurprisingly dominate the 2018/19 PFA Championship Team of the Year, with the two promotion chasers accounting for more than half of the division’s best XI of the season between them.


Republic of Ireland international Darren Randolph has been named as goalkeeper for his impressive efforts between the sticks for Middlesbrough.

Norwich pair Jamal Lewis and Max Aarons have taken the full-back roles, while Leeds duo Liam Cooper and Pontus Jansson have been selected in the two centre-back positions.

On-loan Aston Villa striker Tammy Abraham is also there after bagging 25 Championship goals, proving his quality at this level after scoring 23 for Bristol City two seasons ago.
