The debate is hotting up over who should be awarded the player of the season trophy in English football. First, Robbie Savage reveals his Premier League player of the year and explains why he thinks his choice will pick up the prize later this month. In his six man shortlist are Diego Costa, Philippe Coutinho, David De Gea, Eden Hazard, Harry Kane and Alexis Sanchez, who have all had excellent seasons at their respective clubs. Savage’s final choice for what is the ultimate of end of season football trophies was the Spurs man Harry Kane.
The former Gunners and England star Ian Wright also believes the Tottenham talisman can emulate Gareth Bale and complete a clean sweep of individual awards after a fantastic breakthrough season.
“When you look at it, he’s the outstanding candidate,” Wright said. “He’s been consistent and the main guy.
“No one else comes to mind straight off the bat, which is quite unusual. Usually there are two or three, but not this year. People talk about Eden Hazard but he’s kind of eased off a bit. Chelsea’s form has dipped and that’s coincided with the fact that it’s not going as well for Eden Hazard as it was.
“Harry has been brilliant for Tottenham – he’s been their main man and answered all the questions.”
