Luis Suarez wins the PFA Premier League Player of the Year

All 2013-14 nominees were worthy winners, but the Reds were always likely to supply the top dog with three players on the list.

Liverpool's Luis Suarez has completed an amazing year in football by winning the PFA Premier League Player of the Year.

He beat fellow Liverpool players Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge to the illustrious award, at a ceremony held in London on Sunday night.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard came second, after earlier winning the Young Player of the Year award, while Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure came third.

Also in the running was Southampton captain Adam Lallana.

All six players were selected in the Premier League Team of the Year.

Uruguayan Luis Suarez was one of the favourites for the title last season, eventually losing out to Tottenham's Gareth Bale following an incident in which he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic and was suspended for ten games, ruling him out for the rest of that season and into the current campaign.

It looked like Suarez would be leaving Anfield in the summer after becoming unhappy with his treatment in the country by the press and expressing a wish for Champions League football. Despite training alone for a period, Suarez was brought back into the first team and upon completion of his ban came back into the starting eleven with devastating effect.

The 27-year-old, who signed from Ajax in 2011 for £22.8 million, has scored 30 goals in 31 games, ensuring his position as one of the best strikers in the world and firing Liverpool into a three way title race with Manchester City and Chelsea. He has also set up 21 goals in what has been a spectacular campaign for a player whose name was booed at last year's ceremony.

Upon receiving the trophy, Suarez was quick to pay tribute to the Merseyside club. 

"I always try my best for the team and it is nice to get awards but really this is for my team-mates and the staff at Liverpool because without their help I wouldn't have this prize," said Suarez

"The Premier League is full of really great players and so it is a great honour when these players recognise your work on the pitch."

Suarez had played on Sunday afternoon as Liverpool lost 2-0 to Chelsea at Anfield.

Despite the setback, the club will be hoping it is not the last trophy Suarez will be getting his hands on this season.
