Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson in action.

Who will be Swansea City's Player of the Year?

Published 1 Comments

Swansea City live another day, or season, in the Premier League as they defeated Liverpool 3-1 at the beginning of the month.

Swansea have had a difficult season, and have spent a long time near the drop zone, but following their impressive win at Anfield and their superb 4-1 win at Upton Park against West Ham United, the south Wales side have successfully avoided relegation and can already plan for next season.

However, who are the players who deserve most credit for Swansea's season? The likes of; Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jack Cork, Andre Ayew and Wayne Routledge all deserve special mentions for their performances throughout the 2015/2016 campaign.

So who deserves it the most?

First up, Gylfi Sigurdsson. The midfielder has played a large part in the goals scored this season, netting 11 times this season with just one game left in the league.

Sigurdsson has also provided his teammates with four assists throughout the campaign. Although this tally is surprisingly low given his importance to the Welsh side, his performances since the turn of the year has seen him play a vital role in their survival.

Then we have Jack Cork. He scored a beautiful goal against Liverpool earlier this month, and since arriving from Premier League rivals Southampton, he's become a crucial part of Swansea's midfield.

Cork has made 34 league appearances for Swansea this season, with the majority of them seeing him complete the full 90-minutes.

He has a lone goal to his name and two assists, but the majority of his game sees him intercepting play and breaking down opponent's attacks. Something he does very well.

Next up is Andre Ayew. The Ghanaian was seen as a big coup for the Swans beating many European sides to get the forward to put pen to paper.

Ayew has scored 11 goals in 33 appearances which is a pretty good return given it being his debut season in the Premier League.

As well as scoring 11 goals for the Swans, Ayew has provided his teammates with five assists. Sadly the same cannot be said for his brother, who is being relegated with Aston Villa.

Finally, Premier League veteran Wayne Routledge. The winger gives consistently good performances for Swansea, and with skill and pace under his belt, he has played a big part in Swansea's survival.

Despite only getting himself two goals and one assist this season, Routledge's pace gives Swansea another dimension and an outlet on the counter attack.

Notable mentions

Notable mentions have to be Swansea's longest serving player, Leon Britton.

Britton, who has an unbelievable successful passes rate, joined Swansea back in 2003. The midfielder has survived relegation from football league, to helping Swansea's work their way to the Premier League in 2011. The midfielder does what he does best, distribute the ball well and keep the game moving.

Polish international keeper Lukasz Fabianski also deserves a mention for his phenomenal team spirit and his contribution to the team.

The former Arsenal shot-stopper has kept nine clean sheets for Swansea this season and has put in some standout display for the Welsh outfit.

Who will win the award we are yet to hear, but the aforementioned four are all in with a good shout.
