LONDON (AP) - Title rivals Leicester and Tottenham have four players each in the English Premier League team of the year voted by their fellow professionals.

The quartet from leader Leicester is Wes Morgan, N’Golo Kante, Riyad Mahrez, and Jamie Vardy.

Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Harry Kane represent Tottenham in the Professional Footballers’ Association team of the year.

The three remaining slots go to Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea, Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin and West Ham’s Dimitri Payet.

With four games remaining, Leicester has a five-point lead over Tottenham at the top of the standings.

The PFA player of the year is announced on Sunday. The only player on the shortlist not to make the team of the year is Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil. The other contenders are Kane, the league’s top scorer, Vardy, Kante, Mahrez, and Payet.
