Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie was crowned the PFA Player of the Year on Sunday evening, the Dutch striker was favourite to pick up the award after scoring 34 goals for the Gunners across all competitions this season.

Those over at betting bonus note how Van Persie is also the top goal-scorer in the Premier League this campaign, with 27 goals to his name so far.

The Arsenal captain was clearly honoured to have been acknowledged by his fellow professionals, he said: “If other people are saying it, it is special, but it is even more special if your opponents are saying it. If they make up their minds that I’m the best player it is a big honour.”

The Holland International was quick to thank his team-mates, who he says have been the reason behind his success this year: “Without them I could not have achieved it, for example, Theo Walcott, he has given me more than 12 assists and I do really appreciate that” said Van Persie.

Transfer betting pundits note how the 28-year-old is enjoying his best spell as an Arsenal player since joining in 2004, which seems to be down to him playing a more central role.

Stunning volleys against Liverpool and Everton stand out as the best goals Van Persie has managed this season, as well as the long range effort in the famous 5-2 win over local rivals Tottenham.

Spurs defender Kyle Walker was awarded the PFA Young Player of the Year Award, the 21-year-old has enjoyed a long spell in the side under Harry Redknapp.

It’s been a great year for Walker, who also earned his first full International cap for England against Spain. The full-back also looks likely to be on the plane to the European Championships this summer.

The ex-Sheffield United man was very happy with the award but wants trophies at Tottenham to come soon : “It is a great honour to get the award and hopefully there is more to come.” Said Walker.
