The best XI of players not in the Europa League or Champions League this season.

Here is our best XI from those not involved:
GK) David de Gea (Manchester United)
The young Spaniard has been one of few United players to impress this season and was chosen here ahead of Steve Mandanda of Marseille and Guillermo Ochoa of Malaga.
