Chelsea duo Diego Costa and Eden Hazard have been pivotal in Chelsea’s charge to the Premier League title this season, and Hazard is certainly one of the most likely to claim the award.
Manchester United’s David de Gea has also stunning campaign, and could very well come away with the PFA title, as well as the club’s own player of the year, having been Louis van Gaal’s standout performer.
Harry Kane, meanwhile, has enjoyed a sensational breakthrough season at White Hart Lane, as he sits level with Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa as the league’s top scorer with 19 goals. His incredible performances earned the 21-year-old his first international call up to the senior England squad in March.
Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez and Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho have also been in fine form for their respective clubs, but the duo’s impact has dipped towards the end of the season.
