Three Liverpool players have been nominated for this year’s PFA Player of the Year award, with two named in the Young Player of the Year award category.
Sturridge is also on the shortlist for the Young Player of the Year award, along with Raheem Sterling and Hazard.
On announcing the two shortlists, PFA Chief Executive Gordon Taylor is quoted by the Daily Express as saying, “These Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in football and looking at this year’s nominations it is clear that this has been an incredibly competitive year.
“Each of the six men nominated for the Players’ Award could expect to be recognised by their fellow professionals, as they have each had a superb season individually and played significant roles in the success of their clubs this year.
“The quality of the Young Player nominations is a cause for real celebration. There are some extremely talented players coming through at the highest level of our domestic game and four of the six nominees already play for England, with Aaron Ramsey a stalwart of the Welsh national side.”
In the PFA awards for women’s football, Liverpool Ladies have three nominees amongst the shortlist.
Lucy Bronze, Natasha Dowie and Nicole Rosler join Arsenal Ladies’ Siobhan Chamberlain and Jordan Nobbs, as well as Seattle Reign’s Kim Little.
In the Women’s Young Player of the Year award, Bronze is also nominated alongside teammate Martha Harris.
