Over the last two Premier League games, there is no denying that Steven Gerrard has been head and shoulders above anyone in the league, however over the course of the season, has the 28-year old done enough to be crowned PFA Player of the Year?
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez certainly thinks so.
The Spaniard had this to say : "He would be my vote. If he can continue playing at this level, then why not? ... For me, Stevie is one of the best players in the world. To say one is the best above anyone else is difficult because there are a lot of quality players about but he is one of the best. That is clear."
His performances against Manchester United and Aston Villa respectively, were quite frankly, world class. There is no doubt that come the end of the season, when players have to vote for their Player of the Season, Gerrard will certainly be on quite a number of the ballots, however will he get enough votes to be crowned Player of the Year?
Before the United game two weeks ago, the only name really being mentioned to take the award was Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic. It just goes to show you how quickly things can change in football. On one hand you have Vidic, who had a nightmare of a game before eventually being sent off and on the other hand you have Gerrard who plays incredibly well and is automatically considered by many the Player of the Season.
Personally, I would agree with Rafa that Gerrard is the best in the league at the moment and if he continues this kind of form, how could he miss out.
So will Gerrard be the man to take the award come the end of May or will it be Vidic, or anyone else for the matter, to take the award? Comments below please.
Regardless of what people have been saying about Nemanja Vidic since the Liverpool match, the Serb has been the most consistent and most valuable player in the league this season.
It's one of the reasons why United are top and Liverpool just keep on chasing.
UNITED WILL WIN LEAGUE ON 2ND LAST DAY AGAINST ARSENAL N LEAVE LIVERPOOL WONDERING WEN WIL DEY EVER WIN A PREMIERSHIP TITLE !!!
RONALDO IS THE BEST FOOTIE PLAYER EVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:) :) :)
