Cazorla and Alexis’s nominations shouldn’t come as a surprise, but many will be stunned to see Ozil’s inclusion due to his lengthy injury lay-off earlier on this season.
Despite the criticisms he receives externally, observant Arsenal fans have noticed a shift in Ozil’s game over the past few months as he accepts more responsibility.
Returning bulkier than usual in his cameo appearance against Stoke City in January, Ozil has continued a steady rise which has coinciding with his return to his favoured role.
The award, powered by 90MiN, is set to be announced on May 26th and is decided by fans across the country.
Alexis was unlucky to miss out on the PFA Player of the Year award given his sensational campaign this term and is surely one of the favourites for this award.
You can vote for any of our trio here, and we implore that you do. It’s about time some of our players got the individual recognition their talents warrant.
