N'Golo Kante favourite to win PFA Player of the Year award

Besides this, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexis Sanchez, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku also glow on the six-man shortlist, as the PFA informed.

Premier League top-scorer Romelu Lukaku can not be ignored up front, while Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic completes Barton's team, meaning there are no selections from his former club Manchester City or Arsenal.

Hazard won the award in 2015, the last time Chelsea won the title.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes Dele Alli should have been nominated for the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award.

The other contenders are golden boot front-runner and Everton star Romelu Lukaku, Manchester City winger Leroy Sane, Burnley defender Michael Keane and Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal will both have representation at the PFA Awards after the shortlists for players' player of the season and young player of the season were announced.

"I think he deserves it because he's showing great performances every week and in every game", Pochettino said.

Therefore, Alli can count himself unlucky to miss out, considering he has contributed 21 goals and assists combined in the Premier League this season - two more than Hazard.

The shortlist was released today, with the Chelsea duo leading the charge.

Wenger and Arsenal fans will be praying to keep hold of Alexis, after both Manchester City and Chelsea have made the striker their number one transfer target for the summer.

"Since then we've done alright so I don't think we'll be changing it just yet".

Alli is the Premier League's most prolific goal-scoring midfielder this term, with 19 in all competitions so far, plus one for England.
