It's official - Arsenal have the best full backs in the country.

Last night Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna were named in the PFA's Premier League Team of the Season. It is a highly prestigious award given the voting comes from the professional ranks.

This term, the French duo have been as influential as it is possible to be from their position, offering safety in defence and incisiveness to the attack

"I think our two full backs have been great," said Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger ahead of the announcement. "They have two very good statistics.

"If you ask any Arsenal fan what they think of Clichy and Sagna I think you will have unanimous praise."

Surely a first French cap must be just around the corner for Clichy.
