Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been named as the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year at an awards ceremony in London yesterday.

The 27-year-old Uruguayan travelled down to the ceremony after the Reds' 2-0 defeat at home to Chelsea earlier in the day.

Suarez's strike partner Daniel Sturridge and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard joined him in the Premier League Team of the Year, along with three Chelsea players - goalkeeper Petr Cech, defender Gary Cahill and midfielder Eden Hazard.

The line-up is completed by Manchester City's Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure, Southampton left-back Luke Shaw and midfielder Adam Lallana, plus Everton right-back Seamus Coleman.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard was voted Young Player of the Year.

Liverpool made it a clean sweep when Lucy Bronze was named the Women's Players' Player of the Year and team-mate Martha Harris was voted the Young Player of the Year.
