A coaching panel, which included former Manchester United boss David Moyes, England coach Gareth Southgate and Belgium manager Roberto Martinez, selected the 20-man squad of the season.

However, there was no space for Salah despite the Egyptian becoming only the fifth African to score in a final and netting five goals overall this campaign. In addition, there was no space for Mbappe, who also scored five goals and assisted in another four strikes in 2018/19.
