Guzan and Weimann in fight for player of the month - and the year


Brad Guzan and Andreas Weimann are battling it out for player of the month - and player of the year.

Guzan and Weimann are Nos.1 and No.2 respectively in both polls.

The pair have been a revelation in claret and blue this season and are fighting it out to be crowned the top star, following in the footsteps of the likes of Gareth Barry, Stan Petrov and Dennis Mortimer.

Each game sees players handed three points for a man of the match performance, two points for second and one point for third.

Guzan has four points this month - two points each for second place positions against Manchester City and QPR.

Weimann has three points due to his first place position against QPR, a game which saw him star.

Fabian Delph, Yacouba Sylla and Ashley Westwood all have three points too.

Delph was in first place against Man City, Sylla was first place against Reading while Westwood was second place against Reading and third place against QPR.

There's only one more game applicable now in the race for player of the month and that's Liverpool on Easter Sunday. You'll be able to vote straight after the match.

Will Guzan keep his lead with a stunning stopping display or will Weimann overtake him and produce another sensational performance against the Reds?

The fight is echoed in the player of the year voting.

Guzan has 29 points, Weimann has 26, Benteke has 22, Westwood has 17 and N'Zogbia has 16.

The points from all the games will be calculated at the end of the season and the winner will receive the player of the year award - the Mars-sponsored Terrace Trophy.

Make sure you snap up tickets for Villa v Liverpool.
