Let's take a closer look at the nominees.

"He's improved a lot from last season".

A PAIR of Chelsea players are among the six stars on the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award.

The Belgium magician has it all, speed, agility and goals.

Former MK Dons midfielder Alli has scored 16 goals and registered five assists in 30 Premier League appearances for Spurs during the 2016-17 campaign. Dyche said he lured Keane, whose contract runs to the end of next season, with the offer of a chance to grow as a player.

Three City players get the nod in this category too, with Parris joined by Georgia Stanway and Keira Walsh.

Alexis Sanchez's goals have been one of the few positives in what has been a nightmare season for Arsenal.

Alli was off-colour in autumn, in common with the rest of Spurs' team, but just as Bale did in 2013-14 he has gone to another level in the second half of the season.

When the shortlist for English soccer's player of the year was released on Thursday, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino found Harry Kane's name as expected.

Jamie Carragher believes that Dele Alli is not far away from being named as the PFA player of the year.

Young scooped the award and it must be said that he's gone on to have the best career out of the six players. "I train hard", he told Sky Sports.
