Reds trio up for PFA awards

As well as Suarez, van Persie and Carrick find themselves up against Spurs' Gareth Bale and Cheslea duo Eden Hazard and Juan Mata.

Meanwhile, Danny Welbeck finds himself on the six-man shortlist for the Young Player of the Year gong.

Although the Longsight-born striker has only found the net once in the league this term, his inclusion on the Young Players' shortlist is a measure of how highly his fellow professionals value his overall contribution.

The winners of both awards will be announced at a gala dinner in London on Sunday 28 April.
