Make no mistake about it, we’re now well and truly into the business end of what has been yet another turbulent season in the Premier League.
We’re not prepared to make any predictions about who will end up where just yet; the battle for Champions League qualification is being more ferociously contested than ever before, whilst a shock defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday has re-opened the door in the Premier League title race – and who knows what will happen at the more unfortunate end of the table.
But Football FanCast feel we’ve received enough evidence by now, at least 28 games gone, to start considering who should be in the frame for this year’s Player of the Season award. Riyad Mahrez’s chances of retaining it are slim to none, so could we see the honour returning to Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, or does someone else deserve to take it home?
Below is FFC’s 15-man shortlist, which we hope to reduce to five. Let us know who gets your vote and who doesn’t by giving each player a thumbs up or thumbs down.
