PFA Award Talking Points

Dutch central defender Van Dijk is odds-on favourite with the bookies to succeed team-mate Mohamed Salah as Players’ Player of the Year. The Liverpool man would be the first defender to win the award since John Terry in 2005.  Also, Liverpool could be the first team to return back-to-back winners of English football’s most prestigious individual title since Manchester United had four in a row between 2007 and 2010.

Despite having consistently been one of the best players of the year, Sergio Aguero is yet to win this award. That is not likely to change as Van Dijk, Sterling and Hazard are all ahead of him as the favorites.

On his own, Hazard in the only player on either list with a chance to win for a second time – he previously triumphed in 2015. The last Chelsea won the EPL, he battled for the gong with Ngolo Kante who won the award 2 seasons ago.
