Luis Suarez Named PFA Player of the Year

New, comments

The loss to Chelsea on Sunday put a damper on the day as a whole, but it's rounded off with Liverpool's Uruguayan striker being named the PFA Player of the Year.

There's no getting around how disappointing Sunday's loss was--seven points needed to seal the title and now only six possible, and once again Liverpool's fate is out of their own hands. Shifting, elevated expectations make for negativity now, but whatever happens over the next two matches, this has been an absolutely brilliant season. Title or not, there's genuine magic around Liverpool once again, and they'll enter next season as one of the hottest teams in English football over the last sixteen months.

And while the team as a whole has been impressive, none have matched the form of Luis Suarez, who was tonight named the PFA's Player of the Year. Earlier in the evening he joined Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge on the Team of the Year, and the individual award is earned during a campaign in which he's scored 30 league goals and combined with Sturridge to make Liverpool one of the most exciting attacking teams in the country.

Congratulations to Suarez on a well-deserved honor for his on-pitch achievements, many of which are included below.
