Seamus Coleman has been named at right-back on the Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football team of the season.

Coleman was given the unanimous backing of both Sky analysts Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.

Cardiff City’s David Marshall was named as goalkeeper, while Coleman was joined in the back four by Chelsea’s John Terry and Gary Cahill, and Southampton’s Luke Shaw.

The midfield was made up of Eden Hazard of Chelsea, Yaya Toure from Manchester City and Liverpool duo Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling.

The Anfield club’s Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are the strikers.

Coleman insists his Everton side can capitalise on any points Arsenal drop as the race for fourth place in the Premier League intensifies.

Robero Martinez’s team enjoyed a 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday with Killybegs native Coleman winning the man of the match award.

Leighton Baines and Kevin Mirallas - after a Coleman assist - were the goalscorers for Everton in what proved to be former manager David Moyes’ last game in charge of the Old Trafford club before being sacked on Tuesday.

Arsenal remain one point ahead of fifth-placed Everton thanks to their 3-0 win at Hull City on Sunday.

“I still think there will be a slip up along the way and hopefully we can capitalise on that,” Coleman said.

“It’s been a funny season and there are still three games to go, so hopefully we can sneak in towards the end.

“We’ve got a lot of naturally fit lads and the manager has always said we’d peak around this point.”

On Saturday Everton travel to Southampton before rounding off their season with a home fixture against Manchester City and a trip to Hull.

“We’re ready to keep at it until the end now and we still believe we can get fourth,” Coleman added.

“The manager has always said that the way he works that we’d be fresh at this time of the season and I think we proved it against United.”
