The fine debut season form of Alexis Sanchez has seen the Chilean striker secure a nomination for the prestigious PFA Players’ Player of the Year award.
Signed from Barcelona in the summer for £32 million, he’s gone on to score 20 goals in all competitions helping the Gunners (so far at least) to second in the table and an FA Cup semi-final.
Sanchez is one of six players up for the gong. Chelsea duo Diego Costa and Eden Hazard are also nominated, as are Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho, Manchester United keeper David de Gea and ex-Arsenal man Harry Kane.
De Gea, Hazard, Kane and Coutinho are also up for the Young Player of the Year award with Thibaut Courtois and Raheem Sterling.
Four Arsenal players have won the senior award in the past; Liam Brady (1978/79), Dennis Bergkamp (1997/98), Thierry Henry (2002/03 & 2003/04) and Robin van Persie (2011/12).
Good luck to all three Arsenal representatives, they deserves all the plaudits that come their way.
