The winner of this year's PFA Player of the Year award will be announced in London on Sunday night, and six of the Premier League's most talented players will be vying for the prestigious award.

Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale, Chelsea's Eden Hazard and Juan Mata, Manchester United's Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick and Liverpool's Luis Suarez have all been nominated, but only one will be crowned Player of the Year. 

The question is, who should win? It is easy to build a case for the deadly half-dozen, and all have been integral to their respective clubs this season. Bale has easily been Spurs' standout player this year, while Blues duo Hazard and Mata have helped fire the ex-European champions into the semi-final of the Europa League.

Michael Carrick, perhaps the most underrated player on the list, has been quietly effective for Manchester United. Meanwhile, Luis Suarez is the second highest goalscorer in the division. 

Here we'll take a look at Robin van Persie, and analyse just why he deserves to win the Player of the Year award for a second successive season.
