Lukaku nominated for PFA player of the year awards

Premier League-leading Chelsea's success on the pitch has been recognised by the Professional Footballer's Association (PFA) with Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante making the shortlist for the organisation's Players' Player of the Year award.

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of six stars who have been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, ahead of the annual prize-giving night on 23 April.

Kante, who was shortlisted previous year for the award, is the bookmakers' favourite to win the award.

Burnley's Michael Keane is also among the nominees, with Romelu Lukaku, Jordan Pickford and Leroy Sane.

The English youngster has had an awesome season thus far but missed out on the PFA player of the year shortlist.

Kane - the only English nominee in this category - has netted 19 goals despite two spells out with ankle problems.

He said: "There are better players now and it's a better standard".

"After his first season, people wanted to him perform again in his second season".

Unplayable on his day and he has had a few of them this season, the winger has been giving Premier League defenders nightmares all year. Well Chelsea are waltzing to the title, and Hazard has similar stats to the Senegalese with 14 goals and five assists, so rightly deserves his spot.

Man City's Lucy Bronze tops the Women's PFA Players' Player of the Year list.

"It's about getting it under control and I think I've been doing that".

The Daily Mirror picked out six names they believe should be on the list, based on their superior performances in certain aspects of the game.

Sanchez has been the standout player in an underforming Arsenal side, scoring 18 goals in the Premier League this season.
