Chelsea pair Eden Hazard and Pedro have been shortlisted for the Premier League's Goal of the Season award. Hazard's impressive solo strike is one of 10 great goals up for the prize, with Pedro's efforts against Tottenham and Everton also nominated. Dimitri Payet's goal against Middlesbrough is on the list, as is Andros Townsend's gut-busting run and the goal at The Hawthorns.
Former Everton captain Phil Neville says Ronald Koeman is trying to push Tottenham target Ross Barkley away from Goodison Park and believes the 23-year-old could cost interested parties anywhere between £20m ($26m) and £30m ($39m). Barkley's future has long been a bone of contention on Merseyside, and Koeman said that the Blues will make an announcement on the subject imminently. The former Southampton boss has been continuously asked about the subject during press conferences and urged Barkley to provide the club with an answer about his ambitions, but Neville thinks Koeman has an obsession with the Wavertree-born attacker and says the Dutchman is driving the England international towards the exit door and potentially into the arms of Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, who has garnered a reputation for developing British talent.
