POTY: Who Deserves Swansea’s Player of the Year?

There are just a few weeks to go now in the Premier League and Carlos Carvalhal’s turnaround has left a number of players worthy of Player of the Season.

It’s of course far from over yet and relegation is still a possibility. However, we’re going to take a look at those who have positively contributed as we look at the contenders for Player of the Season…

Alfie Mawson

Mawson has been fantastic this season and rightfully was rewarded with an England call-up.

He’s proved time and time again he’s reliable and will no doubt be linked with a number of clubs over the summer. He’s a future captain if he stays at the Liberty and is part of the new breed of centre halves who can both defend and use their feet.

Ki Sung-Yueng

Ki Sung-Yueng may have missed the start of the season but he’s made up for that lost time with some solid performances in the heart of midfield.

He’s had a strong second half of the season and will likely be instrumental in Carvalhal’s second season in charge.

Jordan Ayew

The Ayews have played a bit part in the Swans’ season. Jordan has chipped in with some key goals, 11 in all competitions.

The difference when he’s out of the team is noticeable and he’s a great focal point of the Swansea side.

Lukasz Fabianski

He’s saved the Swans on multiple occasions and has contributed to the earning of multiple points.

Now in his fourth season, he’s been as impressive as ever and few goalkeepers in the Premier League have made more saves than him across the season.

He’ll be key from now until the end of the season as City try and stay in the top flight. If they manage it, Fabianski will be rightly lauded by Swans fans and would fully deserve the Player of the Season award.

Federico Fernandez

The Swansea captain for much of the season and has led by example.

At the club since 2014, he’s made 29 times this season at the heart of the defence and has put in some huge performances across the second half of the season.

All that has been in the face of tragedy, losing his father at the end of last year. On the field he’s been strong in the most heartbreaking of circumstances and he certainly must be saluted for that.
