RVP heads PFA award shortlist

Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie is the favourite to win the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Player of the Year award after being named alongside David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Joe Hart, Scott Parker and Wayne Rooney on the shortlist of nominees.

Van Persie has enjoyed the most prolific season of his career, plundering 34 goals in all competitions for the Gunners so far, and is heavily tipped to scoop the prize.

PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor is one of those who feels the Dutchman is a worthy nominee, saying: "He has been amazing. When you think of the players Arsene Wenger has brought to the club - he came from Feyenoord for £2.75 million I think and that is incredible really.

"When you think of Dennis Bergkamp, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Marco van Basten - he is in that mould of absolutely top-class strikers that Holland, quite phenomenally, manages to produce.

"You could pick half a dozen of his goals out for goal of the season. Arsenal were struggling for some time but he was a real talisman for them. He seems to have lifted the team and got them back believing in themselves again and looking to qualify for the Champions League, giving all the Arsenal fans some hope.''

Manchester City can boast three players among the nominees, with Argentina striker Aguero also nominated for the Young Player of the Year award after an impressive debut campaign in the Premier League following his £38 million move from Atletico Madrid.

Aguero faces competition for the young player award from five British players: Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Daniel Sturridge, Kyle Walker and Danny Welbeck.

The winners will be announced at the PFA's prestigious annual awards night on Sunday.

PFA Player of the Year nominees: Sergio Aguero (Man City), Joe Hart (Man City), Scott Parker (Tottenham), Robin van Persie (Arsenal), Wayne Rooney (Man Utd), David Silva (Man City).

PFA Young Player of the Year nominees: Sergio Aguero (Man City), Gareth Bale (Tottenham), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Kyle Walker (Tottenham), Danny Welbeck (Man Utd).
