Liverpool’s form in pursuit of their first league title since 1990 has been acknowledged with three players nominated for the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Player of the Year award.
The Premier League’s leading scorer, Luis Suarez, is joined by his prolific strike partner Daniel Sturridge and the Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard, on the six-man list announced yesterday.
Also nominated are the Chelsea forward Eden Hazard, Manchester City playmaker Yaya Touré and Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana.
Suarez is the firm favourite to land the award, having already scored 29 league goals during this campaign.
Hazard, 23, and 24-year-old Sturridge have also been nominated for the Young Player of the Year award, along with Southampton left-back Luke Shaw, 18, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, 23, Everton’s midfielder Ross Barkley, 20, and another Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling, 19.
There are also three Liverpool players nominated for the women’s award, Natasha Dowie, Nicole Rolser and Lucy Bronze. Also in the frame are the Arsenal goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain, clubmate Jordan Nobbs, plus Kim Little of Seattle Reign in the United States.
