Suarez favourite for PFA award

Luis Suarez is the big favourite to walk away with the PFA Player of the Year award tonight.

The Uruguayan is one of three Liverpool players nominated for the prestigious award, which will be announced at a ceremony in London.

Suarez was beaten to the award by Gareth Bale last term, but there seems little doubt the 27-year-old Liverpool striker will win this year.

Suarez has been the driving force behind Liverpool's title assault, scoring 30 goals despite missing the first six games as part of his punishment for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.

Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge are the other Liverpool players nominated.

All three are expected to make the dash from Liverpool to London for the ceremony following the Reds' clash against Chelsea. - PA Sport.
