Fans react as Everton sensation Tom Davies is snubbed for PFA nomination

The North London duo are also up against Chelsea pair Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante, Everton's Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic of Manchester United for the award.

For the second successive season, Alli was included in the PFA Young Player of the Year category, but the 21-year-old missed out on the main list to the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Although he has been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year, the same he won in 2016, he has been overlooked for the senior prize.

Tottenham's Dele Alli must be considered a warm favourite to retain the PFA Young Player of the Year Award.

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli, Manchester City forward Leroy Sane, Burnley defender Michael Keane and Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford also made the cut.

These players are eligible for PFA Players' Player of the Year award as well and only three players have ever won both the awards in the same season.

Lukaku and Kane are worthy due to them both enjoying 20 goal + seasons.

"I think he deserves it because he's showing great performances every week and in every game", Pochettino said.

But Shearer can't comprehend why Alli hasn't been nominated for the full senior player trophy after his huge season with the north London side.

The PFA Awards celebrate the best of English football in an evening attended by hundreds of current professional stars, to recognise the outstanding performers in every division. Kane won it two seasons ago and Everton's Lukaku started his first Premier League match in May 2012.

Alli definitely has a case to be on the list of the Premier League's best six players of the season.

"Since then we've done alright so I don't think we'll be changing it just yet".

The Belgian striker is now enjoying the most prolific season of his careers, leading the Premier League goalscoring charts with 23.
