Players pick Tevez among the best
The Argentina international has been a pivotal figure for the Blues
since his controversial summer move from neighbours Manchester
United, scoring 28 goals in all competitions. United striker Wayne
Rooney has been installed as the overwhelming favourite to land the
award. Like Rooney, Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has been selected
for both the main award, and the young player of the year prize.
Didier Drogba might not have hit the heights as consistently as in
other years, but his goals ensured Chelsea came through their rocky
patch and the Ivory Coast striker is also on the shortlist. City
goalkeeper Joe Hart is in contention for the PFA Young Player of
the Year award after a superb season on loan at Birmingham. Hart
will go up against Rooney, Fabregas and Aston Villa midfielder
James Milner for the gong.
