Harry Redknapp: It should be John Terry, not Eden Hazard, winning PFA Player of the Year.

The Blues winger is expected to scoop the award this evening, but the former Spurs boss thinks it should be Chelsea's skipper who takes the award.

Harry Redknapp is in agreement that it should be a Chelsea player winning the PFA Player of the Year award this evening - but doesn't think it should be Eden Hazard.

The former Spurs boss believes John Terry has done enough to take the award, despite not being included on the shortlist.

Redknapp credits the Blues' resurgence back to the top of the table, and a probable title, down to the stability of Terry at the back, rather than Hazard's attacking flair.

He wrote in his Sun on Sunday column: "If anyone from Jose Mourinho's side should be picking up the PFA Player of the Year award tonight it's John Terry.

"Eden Hazard has had a fantastic season for Chelsea and it's no secret that I tried to sign him for Spurs when I was the manager at White Hart Lane.

"But the reason the Premier League title is heading back to Stamford Brudge is because they've had Terry organising and leading them from the back. Hazard has been the icing on the cake for Chelsea. Terry has been their driving force."

Terry has been named in the PFA Player of the Year, alongside centre-half partner Gary Cahill, midfielder Nemanja Matic, striker Diego Costa and Hazard.

The Belgian is expected to pick up the main award this evening, with Tottenham striker Harry Kane tipped to land the PFA Young Player of the Year.
