PFA Awards Predictions:
Riyad Mahrez Favourite to win PFA Player of the year award:
Riyad Mehraz is clear favourite to win the PFA Player of the year award he is likely to beat the challenge from teammates Jamie Vardy and N’Golo Kante, Ozil, Harry Kane and Dimitri Payet. Mehraz had an absolute cracking season where he has scored 16 goals and provided 10 assist.
His contribution is far more than just goals, he has been the driving force behind Leicester City’s title run alongside Jamie Vardy.
Dele Alli favourite to win young player of the year award:
Its shame that Dele alli is not nominated in the main award but he is more than likely to scoop the young player of the year award after absolute superb season with Tottenham where he contributed 8 goals and 10 assists.
Stoke City’s Jack Butland is also an outsider but Alli’s performances has been so good I can only see him winning young player of the year award.
