Several of Europe's best young stars were named in the UEFA Champions League's breakthrough team of 2017.

In goal, selected Manchester City's impressive Brazilian shot-stopper Ederson, who has been hailed for his performances not only in Europe, but in the Premier League too.

The 24-year-old's distribution and agility has seen him gain many plaudits since his arrival at City, something manager Pep Guardiola might be relieved about considering last season's Claudio Bravo signing.

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney was chosen at left back and FC Barcelona's Nelson Semedo at right back, while Bayern Munich's Niklas Sule and Tottenham Hotspur's Davinson Sanchez were selected as the centre-back pairing.

Besiktas star Talisca, 23, was named alongside Spurs' Harry Winks and Real Madrid's Marco Asensio in midfield.

Basel's 20-year-old attacker Dimitri Oberlin was also named in the side, as was RB Leipzig's Germany striker Timo Werner and Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe.
