Luis Suarez Named FWA Player of the Year

Alex Livesey

Liverpool's talented Uruguayan striker becomes the first South American player to have ever won the FWA Player of the Year award and the first non-European to win both the PFA and FWA honors.

It's been a throwback season in many ways for Liverpool--top of the table for long stretches, playing some free-flowing, attacking football, and possessing one or two of the league's best players in their respective positions. Luis Suarez has led the charge, scoring goals for fun since returning from his ban in late September, and after earning recognition as the PFA Player of the Year last week, the Uruguayan has now been named the FWA Player of the Year as well.

Richly deserved for his body of work on the pitch, where he's scored an astonishing 30 goals in 31 games. That's nearly a third of Liverpool's total haul and ten more than Daniel Sturridge, who's been terrific in his own right. With two matches left, Suarez has a chance to tie or surpass the Premier League record for a 38-match season, an achievement shared by Alan Shearer and Cristiano Ronaldo.
