FIFA 19 Community Team of the Season: Ibrahimovic, Alderweireld and Thiago star

Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads the way in the FIFA 19 Community Team of the Season after his goalscoring prowess with LA Galaxy this year.

The mercurial Swede has hit nine goals in nine games so far in MLS this term and has recorded a further two assists to boot, helping his side to second in the Western Conference.

Thiago joins him after a season in which his importance to reigning Bundesligachampions Bayern Munich has been underlined, remaining a consistent performer as they wrestle with rivals Borussia Dortmund for the title.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen gets the nod in goal, with Porto duo Alex Telles and Felipe joined by Bayern's Niklas Sule and Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld in defence.

Brazilian duo Allan and Oscar link up with Thiago in midfield, while Sergio Busquets is also named.

Out wide, Yannick Carrasco earns a spot after scoring five goals in seven games for Dalian Yifang so far this year.

The Community TOTS was chosen via a vote and picked from 103 nominees who never made it into a TOTW.
