Arsenal star votes for Liverpool striker as Player of the Year

Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has revealed he voted for Liverpool’s top goalscorer Luis Suarez as this season’s Player of the Year.

Despite spending a number of weeks out injured, this term surely has been Ramsey’s best season in an Arsenal shirt.

In 18 Premier League starts, he has notched nine goals and eight assists – outperforming the far more illustrious (and expensive) Mesut Ozil.

Ramsey’s form has seen people sit up and take notice, with some suggesting that the Arsenal man is in the running for Young Player of the Year himself, despite his limited time on the pitch.

When hearing of his potential inclusion in the end-of-season awards, the Arsenal player admitted it was good to receive acknowledgement for his hard work. He also later revealed who he voted for as his Player of the Year.

The Arsenal midfielder told Sky Sports: 'It is nice to hear other people have noticed. I voted for Liverpool's Daniel) Sturridge for young player or (Eden) Hazard. One of those two. The main award I voted for Suarez - he has had an unbelievable this season;.

The Uruguayan international striker has had his best season ever for Liverpool this term, netting a phenomenal 30 goals, with an additional 12 assists in just 30 Premier League appearances.

His antics on the field have seen him top the Premier League goalscoring charts by a comfortable margin over second placed Liverpool teammate Sturridge, and the duo have contributed to a memorable season for the Anfield outfit.

In 2014, Liverpool have gone on an incredible 11-game winning streak, which has seen them surge to the top of the Premier League. With just three games remaining and Liverpool holding a five point gap over second-placed Chelsea at the top of the league, few could begrudge Suarez from completing the double - a Premier League winner’s medal and the Player of the Year trophy.
