Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness has picked his Premier League team of the season for The Sunday Times, and it contains some notable omissions.

There is just one Leicester City player in his XI, despite the team on the cusp of a remarkable Premier League title triumph.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri is refusing to look any further ahead than the next match despite seeing his side edge closer to the Barclays Premier League title.

The Foxes maintained their stranglehold on top spot with a 2-0 victory at Sunderland on Sunday, but Ranieri, as he has done all season, was keeping his feet firmly on the ground.

WHO MAKES SOUNESS'S CUT? SCROLL THROUGHT THE XI BELOW...

Asked if it was difficult to hear people saying the title is already theirs, the Italian said: "No, no, no. They can continue to say it. No, no, no, no.

"But it's important our focus, our concentration is on the next match. I said this to the players: 'Well done, we won today, but now we have two matches. The first against West Ham is a very, very difficult match because West Ham are a fantastic team with good players and everything right; and after, there is Swansea, another difficult match. Now we are happy, but from tomorrow, be focussed'.
