I've been outlining and previewing the 2015-16 EPL season! Check out the collection here.
In this card, I'm taking a look at the five players that I think have the best shot at winning PFA Player of the Year.
Who will end the season as the EPL's best star?
Chelsea's Belgian superstar made huge strides toward being among the world's best last season and is the reigning Player of the Year. He's a likable star, as he comes off as humble in nearly all of his interviews. He is a great candidate to repeat as Player of the Year - all signs are pointing up for Hazard.
Rooney, ever the jokester (who could forget his classic boxing celebration last year?), seems another good bet to have perhaps his best season yet. He'll be relied on as the central striker all year in Louis van Gaal's 4-3-3, with no other reliable center forward on the squad. The service from midfield and the wings should be superb, and Rooney figures to have a real shot at the award.
After working his tail off to help Chile win the Copa America this summer, Alexis is set to miss the first match or two of the season, as manager Arsene Wenger wants to rest his biggest star. Alexis figures to be back and better than ever, though, ready to build on a stellar first season in the Prem in 2014-15. He's got loads of quality and energy and it would be tough to bet against him.
For my money, Kun Agüero is the best striker in the Premiership. Better than Rooney, better than Costa. He's had an amazing goal-scoring record in the past few seasons; since joining City in 2011, he's scored 78 times in 120 matches. He's clinical in front of net, he's pacey, he's creative, and he's one of the most energetic players in the league. His problem has been fitness, though. If, like in past seasons, Agüero is unable to stay fit all year, it will be difficult for him to win Player of the Year.
David de Gea / Thibaut Courtois
I'm cheating a little here by including the two top keepers in the league. It would really be something to see a goalkeeper win Player of the Year, but with the quality that these two have, you never know.
No one really knows whether or not de Gea will even stay at United this season with Real Madrid calling his name (though I believe he will stay in Manchester). He was probably the best keeper in the division last season, saving United countless times from crazy angles and positions. Courtois is quickly turning into the world's best, too - his length and command in the air are outstanding and there is no ceiling for his potential. He will be a huge asset for Chelsea again this season.
I'm picking Alexis to win Player of the Year
He's been in great form for over a year now and with a year of Premiership football under his belt, he will be ready to take over the league.
