Liverpool's outstanding season under Brendan Rodgers has been rewarded with three nominations for PFA Player of the Year but, as anyone who has paid attention this season will attest, the outcome of this one is likely to be something of a formality. 

Luis Suarez will certainly be favourite to pick up the gong, a reward for his contribution of 29 goals (so far) to Liverpool's title challenge. His strike partner Daniel Sturridge also makes the 6-man list after notching up 23 goals, while their captain Steven Gerrard is also among the nominees after the England captain's vintage form has proved vital to what could be Liverpool's most successful domestic season in a quarter of a century. Sturridge is one of two players in contention for both senior and young player of the year.

Chelsea's Belgian wizard Eden Hazard is the other, bagging a nomination for both senior and young player of the year while Manchester City's irrepresible Yaya Toure and Southampton captain Adam Lallana makes up the remainder of the list.

Everton's Ross Barkley, Southampton's Luke Shaw, Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey and - yep, you guessed it, Liverpool's Raheem Sterling complete the list.

All of the above players (with the sole exception of Aaron Ramsey) will likely be showcasing their talents at this summer's World Cup in Brazil and this news will likely serve as a nice pick-me-up ahead of that - particularly after a long, hard season. If you ask the four Liverpool nominees, though, they'd happily trade any individual honours for the remaining games of the season to go their way and bring Liverpool their first domestic championship since 1990.
