ENGLISH FOOTBALL’S BIGGEST names will dust down their glad rags this evening for the annual PFA Awards ceremony in London’s Grosvenor Hotel.

Barring a major shock, Luis Suarez looks to have Player of the Year all sewn up after his outstanding season which has put Liverpool on the brink of their first league title in 24 years.

The race for Young Player of the Year is more competitive although Chelsea’s Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard is hotly tipped to take home the gong.

Liverpool duo Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling will quietly fancy their chances while Everton’s Ross Barkley, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey and Southampton’s Luke Shaw are also in the running.

(In case you’re wondering — and we’re sure you are — Seamus Coleman was too old for consideration.)
