The Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) has released a shortlist for its 2017Player of the Year award. The list features one defensive midfielder, two attacking midfielders, and three strikers.
N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard’s efforts in Chelsea’s Premier League title push have been recognised with nominations for the men’s PFA Player of the Year award.
Kante, who was shortlisted last year for his part in Leicester’s remarkable season but did not make the top 3, is the bookmakers’ favourite for the 2016-17 accolade, with the winners to be announced at Grosvenor House in London on Sunday, April 23, 2017.
Eden Hazard picked up this award 2 years ago when the Blues won the league at a canter under Jose Mourinho.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane also feature on the six-man shortlist, the PFA has announced.
