Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Kyle Walker have all been nominated by fellow professionals around the world and are among 55 players competing for a spot in the coveted World11.

The final World XI will be announced on Monday 24 September alongside The Best FIFA Men's Player and Coach, The Best FIFA Women's Player and Coach, The Best FIFA Goalkeeper, the FIFA Puskás Award, the FIFA Fan Award and the FIFA Fair Play Award for 2018. United quartet David De Gea, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku feature, as do Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic misses out for the first time in 12 years, as do Manchester City duo Aguero and Raheem Sterling.

There is also no room for Bale, despite the Real Madrid forward scoring 21 goals in all competitions last season, including two in the Champions League final. The three Reds Virgil van Dijk, Dejan Lovren and Sadio Mane were also nominated along with the Egyptian star.

Chelsea only have two contenders with World Cup victor N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard nominated following their below-par Premier League season which saw them finish fifth.
