English teams replace Spanish LaLiga clubs with the biggest representation on the list of 55 footballers announced today.

Twenty one of the 55 nominees play club football in England, as the Premier League ends La Liga’s dominance.

The team will be revealed at the Best Fifa Football Awards in Milan on 23 September.
