IVAN TONEY has picked THREE Manchester City players in his dream five-a-side team.
The Brentford striker, 26, also named his team-mate Frank Onyeka for a role in the middle of the park in an interview with InchByInch.
Toney joked that Onyeka kicks everyone on the training ground – so would act as the enforcer in his five-a -side team.
Alongside the Nigerian Toney chose Kevin De Bruyne and his City team-mate Ederson.
Explaining the reason behind his selection of the Brazilian in goal, Toney said: "He can kick the ball further than I can drive."
Toney went for former Citizens striker Sergio Aguero in attack and to "balance things out" he named Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk as his sole defender.

But the Bees striker must have been tempted to pick himself after his excellent start to the season.
Toney has five goals in six Premier League games including a superb hat-trick against Leeds last time out.
His form has earned him a first England call-up for the Three Lions' upcoming matches against Italy and Germany in the Nations League.
It is the culmination of a meteoric rise for the striker, who was playing in League One just two years ago.

Toney scored 12 goals in his debut Premier League season last term and has impressed Gareth Southgate with his technical ability and his aerial threat, as well as his goals.
The England boss said of the striker: "With Ivan Toney, we have been tracking him for a long time. I had a good chat with Thomas Frank about him last season.
"His form and his qualities – not only his goalscoring but his technical ability, build-up play and aerial prowess – gives us a different threat to some of the other players we could pick."
