Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton nominates Liverpool duo Luis Suarez and Jordan Henderson for Premier League players of the year.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has revealed that Liverpool pair Luis Suarez and Jordan Henderson have his votes for players of the season.

The lifelong Everton fan believes that Suarez deserves to be crowned Players' Player of the Year, while Henderson should be named Young Player of the Year.

Barton explained his choices on Twitter by writing: "Suarez no brainer. Henderson has had a complete turn around. I was once a critic.

"Suarez and Henderson and I'm an Everton fan. Couldn't think of any players in top 3 that where more deserving of each award.

"Maybe I could have gone Hazard for Young player but Henderson's improvement edged it for me. Always like to see improvement. Hazard top draw."

Liverpool's Premier League title hopes remain alive as they currently sit second in the table, one point adrift of leaders Chelsea.
