The business end of the season is almost upon us and there are a number of clubs still fighting to consolidate their place in the points table. Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are running away with the title while Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City are trailing by a fair bit. Arsenal and Manchester United are fighting with Liverpool for the 4th spot while Everton, West Ham United, Stoke City and Southampton occupy the rest of the places in the top half of the table. There have been some incredible individual performances from players from each of these clubs but who has been the best? Title winners Leicester City saw their Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez get named as the ‘PFA player of the year’ for the 2015/16 season but who is likely to land that title this season? Here are the top 5 nominees for the ‘PFA Player of the Year’ award for the current campaign.
Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal):
The Chilean international has been criticized recently for his attitude but his performances have left nothing to desire. Energetic every time he takes the field, Sanchez has 18 goals and 9 assists to his name and is one of the most productive players in front of goal this season. Though his side are currently 6th in the points table, Sanchez has been better than most of the players playing at his position and thoroughly deserves this award.
