The Team of the Year from Europe's best five leagues based on stats has been revealed after the completion of all these competitions last weekend.

Manchester City claimed the Premier League, Atletico Madrid were crowned Spanish champions, Inter won the Scudetto, Bayern won Bundesliga and surprisingly, Lille won Ligue 1.

In the context of these glories, it's no surprise then that Pep Guardiola's side are one of only two teams in Europe with more than one player in the best XI of Europe's biggest five leagues, according to WhoScored.

Kevin De Bruyne and Joao Cancelo make this XI from Manchester City.

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is the goalkeeper followed by Mats Hummels and Willi Orban at centre-back. Cancelo and Theo Hernandez take up the full-back spots.

Europa League winner Gerard Moreno and Kylian Mbappe take up the wings in a 4-4-2 formation with Joshua Kimmich and Kevin De Bruyne marshalling the midfield.

Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski lead the line of this XI. Messi scored 30 goals in La Liga this season and despite that, Barcelona finished third in the La Liga table.
