By SFC Media time Sun 27 Apr First team

Southampton duo Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw have been named in the 2013/14 PFA Premier League Team of the Year.

The pair were selected in the top flight’s best XI after helping Saints match their record Premier League points haul with two games to spare.

The 2013/14 PFA Premier League Team of the Year in full: Petr Cech (Chelsea), Seamus Coleman (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City), LUKE SHAW (SOUTHAMPTON), ADAM LALLANA (SOUTHAMPTON), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Yaya Toure (Manchester City), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Luis Suarez (Liverpool), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)

This is the first time Southampton has had two players in the top-flight PFA Team of the Year, with Wayne Bridge the last Saint to be included back in 2001/02.

Lallana achieves the honour of being named in the Team of the Year in the top three divisions, having been selected in the League 1 side in 2010/11 and then in the Championship the following year.

The following players have previously been included in the top-flight PFA Team of the Year with Southampton:

  • Wayne Bridge (2001/02)
  • Matt Le Tissier (1994/95)
  • Alan Shearer (1991/92)
  • Peter Shilton (1985/86, 1984/85, 1983/84 & 1982/83)
  • Kevin Keegan (1981/82)
  • Dave Watson (1979/80)
  • Mick Channon (1973/74)

Lallana missed out on the PFA Players' Player of the Season award, which went to Liverpool striker Suarez, while Shaw was pipped to the PFA Young Player of the Season prize by Chelsea man Hazard.
