Liverpool stars face missing out on PFA awards as voting is suspended

Liverpool's players could miss out on individual awards this season after the PFA gala was cancelled for the first time in 47 years.

Voting has been suspended for this year's edition of the prestigious awards, with their completion not a certainty.

The Reds' captain Jordan Henderson and striker Sadio Mane are among the contenders for the top prize, while defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is favourite to land the Young Player of the Year award.

The PFA had planned to hold the event on April 26 at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester.

But the black-tie bash could be scrapped altogether as the PFA have more pressing issues to attend to in the current coronavirus crisis.

The main award has been won by a Liverpool player in the last two seasons by Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk respectively.

Van Dijk is among those being put forward for this year's award too, as well as Man City's Kevin De Bruyne.

Ballot papers were sent out to PFA members in March, but the organisation is yet to announce nominees.

There are also no plans currently afoot to arrange a new date for the awards, which have been held at London's Grosvenor Hotel for the past 25 years.

The awards do has now been put to the back of the PFA's list, according to The Mail, as they work tirelessly to resolve current pay disputes across the Premier League and Football League.
